The list author says:
  "I actually have this one.

I've had several other keyboards along the way, mostly logitech and mostly wireless.  Those are fine and dandy, logitech good products, not a fan of their customer service.

This one, cheap, USB powered (long cable too), full size, music/volume controls, and supposedly drink proof.

PC and Mac (not 100% of features)"

3.  Logitech diNovo Edge Keyboard (Black) by Logitech
The list author says:
  "I bought one of these several years ago.  Very Cool. Bluetooth, vol controls, and a touchpad with two buttons.

I miss this keyboard.  The battery is built in and apparently needs to be sent to Logitech to get a new one.

Logitech Cus Service was not as helpful as I hoped.  It sits in a box unusable. When it worked was my fav keyboard.  Laptop version would have been better, spreadsheets, calc."

5.  Allsop Monitor Stand Metal Art Jr. - Pewter (27021) by Allsop
The list author says:
  "Cool item.  Serves a dual purpose.

Raises the monitor up closer to eye level and has a place to store a keyboard.  I don't like the keyboard of my laptop.  I've used external ones since about a week after I got my laptop.  Sometimes the external keyboard gets in the way.

You can also use it for a printer, put a ream of paper underneath."

Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700
6.  Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 by Logitech
The list author says:
  "I have a lap desk, I have a laptop fan, and I have speakers.

I like my laptop fan - after I blew out my battery.  I spent $150 on a new one and $20 or $25 for the fan and the 2nd battery has lasted longer.

I also have speakers, but they live on my desk. This has volume controls, mute and an on/off switch for the fan.

This serves all three functions, very cool."

Wacom Intuos4 Medium Pen Tablet
7.  Wacom Intuos4 Medium Pen Tablet by Wacom
The list author says:
  "The model doesn't matter so much.

In Win 7, Vista and Mac OS you can use these tablets to write into word processors, spreadsheets etc.  No more keyboards.

I've only seen it used, but it looks impressive.

I thought the iPad would include this feature. oh well, maybe next iteration. Is Amazon going to offer the iPad - a rival to the kindle?"

This is really cool, no moving parts, no cleaning the inside. I have to get into my trackball every few months to clean out the hair and dust. cat fur.

Now if Apple could only make a trackball esque version."

The list author says:

And unlike several similar sized TV's this one is only like 50 lbs. oops 70 lbs.

1080p - the same as movies (Blu Ray)

The list author says:
  "Silly prevails.

Look how much stuff is included!  There are like 9 parts, all large. Funny, they don't list a shipping weight.

But it's THX.  It's also 7.1.  That .1 always bugged me. It's a speaker, why not just say 8 speakers?

It's also iPod compatible.

It just needs an XM tuner."

Oh yeah internet on your TV. Hulu support?

DVR options? I don't know. A USB powered Hard Drive would let us save many hours.

The remote should be a universal remote. Sony?? Why is it an add-on, include a basic one, free of charge.  Make a universal that you have to pay for."

Main reason I list this one first - it's only like $20.  Sat, cable, hd tv boxes, etc.

It works for 8 different devices. Now does it work with xbox 360 or ps3?  To date I haven't seen any remotes that work with playstation 2 or 3 or xbox's.

But isn't this a Sony product?"

If I understand, you go online and tell the web page what devices you have - exact model supposedly.  This way you know you have the right signals/codes. Very Cool.

I figured wait a year the price will fall, no.

Rechargeable battery - cool, replacements - $20+ (model varies)- not cool
ps3 adapter $54 not cool"

  "Not really silly.

How many batteries do you have in your house right now?

Check your remotes, your clocks, your alarms, mice, keyboards, flashlights, other electronics.  I'm guessing you have 10-20 in your house/apartment.

I don't have this particular charger, but I want one. Most require two of the same battery, not this one.  I have two that use 3 aaa, very frustrating."

This one seems to provide a cheap way to do this.

It has a feature to discharge batteries and recharge them from scratch removing the memory effect that effects some batteries.  You can also charge 1, 2, 3, or 4 batteries.  You can even fix one battery while charging the others.

I can't wait to try it."

The pants I'm thinking of have 5 pockets, the fifth is on the right side and is for cellphones.

Connections 1 [5- Disc Set]
19.  Connections 1 [5- Disc Set] DVD ~ James Burke
The list author says:
  "Not a gadget.  It explains how various gadgets came to be.

One of the best shows ever.  Science and education lead to practical things.

I don't own it, I also don't know if I've seen every episode. 3 series, 5 dvd's each.

Now we just need every member of congress and Obama to see this and restore funding to NASA and basic research."

I know it's been said before, I'll never be able to use up all that space.  This time though, I'm kinda thinking it's gonna be hard to fill this one up, once we start hitting 10-15 TB's, it'll be even harder.

Movies - 4.5 GB for DVD quality, 600MB for ok quality, 25 GBs for a Blu Ray DVD.

The math is just catching up with us."

The list author says:
  "A tankless water heater.  So you're not wasting fuel heating a huge tank of water 24/7/365.

1.5 gallons per minute may be too small, I don't know, get one with more GPM's.  Electric and natural gas versions.  Maybe a different company, investigate them.

Cool gadget save money, no loss of hot water."

Best toy I ever had.  You make the toy, you make the story.  If you don't like it or want to change it, easy.

My dad still gets mad at me for leaving legos on the floor when I was a kid. Bare feet and legos leave an impression.

Mad is relative, more like mentions it occasionally. Can't go wrong with these.  I bought myself a little set for christmas.  Told you I was silly."

I like Ikea products/furniture, but using a screw driver to make them is shall we say arduous.

This kind of device is great for their stuff.  It depends a little on what I'm doing, but I'd use one of these over a screwdriver."

A pocket tool without scissors is just not that useful.  I use the scissors more than just about anything.

Well if you do here's an idea. Never pay with coins again. Every time you pay for something use bills.  When you get home, pour your coins into one of these and save them.

When you get to like $50 take them to the bank and actually go in, deposit the coins into your savings account. You have one of those right?

Holiday? Banks will even give you rolls for free."

I figure the 12 oz is better for beer drinkers - you can pour the entire beer (12oz can/bottle) into the glass.

16 oz for soda or water drinkers, a couple of ice cubes and a can of soda fills up this glass.

You can also buy glasses with initials on them, or your favorite team, lots of sports."
