Metroid fans will definitely fall in love with this Samus Aran Phazon Suit statue that was cast in transparent resin and features more than 25 LED lights, based on official artwork and game files. This limited edition statue also comes with an internal IC chip that enables the LEDs to fade out slowly, and each piece is unique since they are hand-finished and hand-painted individually, making sure no two are ever the same. Standing tall at 8", the statue remains stable thanks to its 11" wide base. There will only be 1,500 pieces of this $209.99 statue available.
Check out the Vertu Signature Cobra Boucheron Limited Silver Edition - at first glance, you might be mistaken for being an oil baron to own a $310,000 handset, but upon closer inspection, you'll realize that this is one $700 knock-off, since it does miss out on a diamond, a ruby and several other precious stones at strategic parts of the phone. It won't even hold a digital camera as with the original, while featuring a 262k color TFT display, GPRS/WAP connectivity (sorry, no 3G here) and doubles as a portable media player of sorts.

Sprint looks set to offer the HTC Hero in a pre-order package at Best Buy, with September 13th looking to be the most likely date where said pre-sale will start. As for the smartphone's actual release date, guess we'll just have to wait a little longer before it hits the road officially.
We do know that in all probability, the next generation of the iPod nano and iPod touch will come with a built-in digital camera upgrade that will be announced sometime next month, but a new report has pointed towards this upgrade being applied to the iPod classic as well. OmniVision has been reported to be the sole supplier of 3.2-megapixel CMOS image sensors for the new line of iPods, stressing that the iPod touch, iPod nano and iPod classic will all feature built-in cameras. Just in case you were wondering about the quality, expect it to be similar to the 3.2-megapixel shooter found on the iPhone 3G S which is also supplied by Omnivision.
Coby has a couple of new netbooks that can be pre-ordered from Amazon, where they will come in 12.1" and 10.1" varieties. Both models will share an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, Wi-Fi connectivity and a battery life of slightly more than two hours, which means the only difference between the two would be the screen sizes and their respective prices, of course. The 12.1" model is going for $423.99 while the 10.1" machine is much more affordable at $318.99.
This robot called "Le petit prince" (or little prince) has been designed to be a miniature greenhouse that would let plants from Earth grow. The Robot's job is to find the proper nutriment and to maintain a sustainable environment for the plant. It is supposed to learn how to best use the local resources as time goes and can also keep an eye and communicate with its fellow robots. It's pretty far off, but the robot is just too cute to pass on. By Electrolux Design Labs
I know a few people who use a Macbook Pro as their main system and that means that the laptop is on a desk 98% of the time. The BookArc is a simple, but classy, stand that will turn the Macbook into a slim tower, plus it's better for cooling as the hot air exit is not placed at the top, where the hot air naturally goes.

Early on in their debut, Solid State Drives were planned as included equipment on new computers coming from tier one manufacturers such as Dell, HP, and Apple. In one way or another they made good on their word, but the inflated price for these premium options made SSDs a distant reality. This situation created the perfect condition for a enthusiastic upgrade market. Not surprisingly, manufacturers went after the individual consumer after losing traction with mass system builders, and upgrade kits became the obvious solution for many enthusiasts. Kingston is well known for manufacturing their own memory products, but when it came to the new SSD technology they turned to proven sources such as Samsung. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 64GB SATA-II MLC SSD SNV225-S2/64GB.
