Meet Hello Kitty's arch nemesis: Domo. A Japanese television station - NHK - created him as their mascot at the end of the last mellinnium.
Expect to see a plethora of flash drives by way of massive-marketing-onslaught when Domo comes to America's Nicktoons Network this fall.

The WaCom website should do for pretty-fix-of-the day. I mean, it's so colourful and zen, who cares if you forget why you went to it in the first place. Oh, that's right. The Bamboo thingy.

These are kinda cute, but to be honest what I really want is one of those automated robot type vacuum cleaners that will do all the work for you. Just turn it loose on your way out the door and when you get home in the afternoon, instant clean.
The Kone Vacuum. Karim Rashi, the Kone's designer, doesn't think design should be about solving problems alone, but about rigorous beautification of our built environments. I guess. Sold me on it... [ Continue reading... ]

Pass the wine, the candles and a little light reading but don't call it romance - don't you dare - it's relaxation.
I'm sure there are couples out there who like to bond in the bath. But I gotta tell ya, if a guy ever tried to crawl in the tub with me I'd whack him over the head with a loofah brush, drag his limp body from the room and lock the door. Bath time = Me Time. And don't you forget it.

Once, when I lived with a house full of guys the washing machine went on the fritz. I blamed Paul for over stuffing it and Martin for just not knowing how to use it. Repair man came and pulled this little wirey thing out of it. The guys (repair man included) had no idea what it is. I knew full well - my underwire - but pretended I didn't.

So the MOOL Toaster doesn't toast very well. No matter. I've not done toast since the low carb revolution. Come to think of it, I've not done much of anything in the kitchen lately - I use my oven for storage. So, dysfunctional Turkish appliances suit me fine.
I should probably point out that Atil Kizilbayir's latest gadget is not the safest thing in the world if you live with small children - or anyone else who may feel inclined to... [ Continue reading... ]
