I was looking for a tripod mount for my iPhone and actually found a pretty neat little contraption by Square Jellyfish. The name is a big silly, but the product is solid. At $15, it’s a must have item for the accessory bag. Great for taking photos or video, even works for handsfree FaceTime. Watch the video for the details on how it works.

My dream garage would be filled with Lista Cabinets (as seen on American Chopper) as they offer both of my requirements: American Made and modular cabinets on casters. The only drawback being cost.
Sears Craftsmen’s popped into my mind — thinking everything Craftsmen’s would be American made, right? Uh, nope. Then right next to the Craftsmen benches was this product called Gladiator Garageworks by Whirlpool Corporation. Modular cabinets on casters, check. Made in the U.S.A.? YES! Apparently all their “premium” welded case products are made in the U.S.A. That includes the benches and the gearbox. The ones you need to assemble are not so keep that in mind.
The only design element I’m not too big on is the “tread” or “diamond plate” texture on the doors. I would have liked a smooth finish or options for different colors (silver, red, black, blue, etc) like the Lista Cabinets offer. Not a huge deal and the pattern is growing on me.
Overall, I dig them! The price, the quality and the fact they are Made in the U.S.A. — I couldn’t be happier.
Off to finish organizing the garage!
Here’s a neat add-on that turns your iPhone 4 into a HD video (audio) recording rig at a fairly economical price of $150. The key feature of the Fostex AR4i is that it brings excellent quality stereo audio recording via the dock connector and it’s built-in AD/DA converters. The included microphones can be swiveled and located in many different configurations giving you the best possible audio capture. Built-in LED input level metering, gain control and headphone monitoring, the AR-4i has been designed to turn your iPhone 4 into a high-quality audio and HD video capture device. This little add-on is great for trips and family events where you don’t want to carry another device just for video capture, but want the higher quality audio and video stabilization (via form factor and included handle).

So what do you get when you bring together acclaimed designers such as L.A.M.B. (pictured), Fendi, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Anna Sui, Christian Louboutin, J. Mendel, Earnest Sewn, Lulu Guinness, adidas Respect M.E. by Missy Elliott, Maharishi and Martine Sitbon, to design a PSP case? Some very over the top designs (albeit very expensive ones too). To celebrate the success of "the hottest lifestyle accessory of the year, the PSP" (isn't an iPod still the hottest gadget), Sony brought together designers and celebrities for a fun-filled PSP fashion event dubbed, Pret a PSP.
If you are interested in purchasing these over priced designer cases, then you'll need to wait until next month since that is when these cases, and more, will be available online at http://www.colette.fr and at the Rue Saint-Honore store. Was this post a waste of bandwidth -- I'm just looking out for my fashion loving friends.
The 14" PowerPizza will set you back about two real large pies... or about $26. Some assembly is required.
