Now this USB flash drive is the bomb - literally, as it comes in the shape of a classic bomb that you find in the Bomberman and Mario franchises. Designed by Mexico City industrial designer Joel Escalona, the USB bomb is unfortunately a prototype at this point in time, but I would love to see this roll off manufacturing lines and be shipped to the fictional ACME company of Road Runner fame.
The Philips AJL308 Clock Radio & Digital Photo Frame wants to be adept in a many functions, being primarily an alarm clock that wakes you up gently using sounds of nature. In addition, it has pre-loaded relaxation music that eases you into dreamland, while a USB port and an SD memory card slot makes it a snap to take advantage of the digital photo frame capability. You can also tune in to a radio channel of your choice while those photos are being cycled through. At $129.99 a pop, every decent bedside table ought to have one of these if you're still waking up to a traditional alarm clock, of course.
Ten years ago individuals seeking a form of online self-expression typically ended up at Geocities (or a similar site) and built a “home page”.

We all know that an electric car is the better alternative compared to fuel guzzlers, but there is nothing quite like the roar of a V12 engine to keep those goosebumps coming. Fisker Karma's plug-in hybrid wants to bring the best of both worlds together, placing speakers inside and out so that drivers will be able to play just about any sound they like in order to mask the potency of its electric engine. This $80,000 vehicle will feature a built-in sound clip that sounds somewhat like a cross between a jet plane and a Formula One car. Those sounds won't betray its performance, since the Karma will be able to hit 60 from a standing stop within six seconds.
The MacBook Air has a new rival now from Frontier, known as the FRLN. While the FRLN won't be as thin as the MacBook Air, it takes up less space with a 12" LED-backlit screen, tipping the scales at 2.75 pounds. It also prides itself in being tough when the situation calls for it, capable of withstanding up to 265 pounds of pressure while surviving drops from up to 2.5 feet without any hiccup. Those suffering from butter fingers can also rejoice knowing the the keyboard itself is water-resistant, so don't worry about leaving your drinks around while working. It is powered by Intel's 800MHz A110 processor and comes with 1GB RAM, an 80GB hard drive and WiFi connectivity. The FRLN will be released in Japan later this month for $1,291. It won't see an official release in the US, so that means you gotta import one if the desire for it is too great to combat.

I just wanted to say one last thanks to everyone.
Thanks to Alan for inviting me into his online family. I've had the opportunity to make new friendships I never would have made otherwise, friendships that will last for years to come.
Thanks to the staff at the DG for being friends and contributing to this great site over the years.

Despite this you continued to read and comment on my posts. It's really given me confidence as a writer, something I never thought I would call myself.
Thank you, everyone.
Now how about an Open Thread Friday to close things out!
