If you have the personality which requires attention from your co-workers, family and friends, then the Brando USB Webmail notifier is definitely for you. The USB webmail notifier uses a large envelope box which illuminates each time you receive an email. As you can tell from the picture, it’s quite a ghastly looking thing.
The lighted envelope box connects via USB and comes with it’s own USB client software. The webmail software runs from the box so even if you can load your personal email server, the simple USB connection will let you get email notifications from Yahoo, MSN, Outlook, Outlook Express and just about any POP3 account.

ION Audio has a handful of vinyl to digital audio converter products. However, the ION LP-2-Flash is their first to directly off-load vinyl audio to a USB stick, USB hard drive and even SD card. The LP-2-Flash is a standalone, PC-less vinyl audio ripper for simple operation for even the most lazy music junkie.
The LP-2-Flash has a built in SD slot where you can directly load up your flash memory. The process fully logs, categorizes and separates the audio tracks and digitally converts them to MP3. If you aren’t into SD then USB is equally available. Now, connecting your USB stick or HDD for vinyl download is just as easy.

For obvious reasons we aren’t the biggest Bluetooth fans but more of a WUSB fan, never-the-less we do stumble into very cool products with Bluetooth technology. Take this Estilo Carrera GT Porshce Bluetooth mouse from Brando.
The Estilo GT mouse is extremely cool looking and the ideal gadget gift for that Porsche loving greek friend. The Bluetooth dongle sits in the rear trunk of the wireless mouse with left and right clickers along with scroll mouse on the hood.
I guess you could make the argument that some fellow “over seas” chopped up the Estilo design and did the world a disfavor by creating a Porsche mouse, but if that’s you…get a life…it’s a cool looking mouse.
The Estilo GT Bluetooth Mouse is $38 and $55 with tiny USB Bluetooth V2.0+EDR adapter (see I knew we’d fit in USB somewhere)
“It’s a USB hub two computers use.” Sounds off doesn’t it? It’s not. What the Kensington ShareCentral does is provide a single USB box you can plug your USB devices into so they maybe shared between two computers. This is ideal for printers or scanners that need to be shared between computers (small office). Or ideal for placing a USB hard drive on a small network for automated backup. Or simply a KVM switch to centralize your keyboard, video monitor and mouse between two PCs. Actually I could use that now between my “work” computer with dual monitors to my “test” PC which could use dual monitors.
I spotted the ShareCentral while over at GizmosForGeeks earlier today. They had a good point:
