Silly Guy Gadgets

Prescott Barden "presbarden"
The list author says: "I don't need this stuff, they are just kinda cool.

A few I have, most I don't, but want (or something like it)."
Logitech Illuminated Keyboard K740
Logitech Illuminated Keyboard K740
"I type by looking at the keyboard.  I've gotten pretty good over the years.  Sometimes though I think it would be useful to have a backlit keyboard. At night for instance."
Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000
Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000
"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)"
Logitech diNovo Edge Keyboard (Black)
Logitech diNovo Edge Keyboard (Black)
"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."
Imak  Keyboard Cushion Grey
Imak Keyboard Cushion Grey
"I actually have this one. It forms to the keyboard, so whatever keyboard you have, it'll work."
Allsop Metal Art Jr. Monitor Stand, holds 40 lbs with keyboard storage space - Pewter (27021)
Allsop Metal Art Jr. Monitor Stand, holds 40 lbs with keyboard storage space - Pewter (27021)
"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
Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700
"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
Wacom Intuos4 Medium Pen Tablet
"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?"
Apple Magic Bluetooth Mouse
Apple Magic Bluetooth Mouse
"I am not a mouse user.  I prefer trackballs, less wrist movement, no tennis elbow. 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."
Samsung UN55B8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV (2009 Model)
Samsung UN55B8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV (2009 Model)
"Since I am being silly - here we go. A 55 inch TV. And unlike several similar sized TV's this one is only like 50 lbs. oops 70 lbs. 1080p - the same as movies (Blu Ray) 240 MHz - so sports and games would not leave ghosts. Internet Ready Picture in Picture"
Onkyo HT-S9100THX 7.1 Channel Receiver and Speaker Package (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Onkyo HT-S9100THX 7.1 Channel Receiver and Speaker Package (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"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."
PlayStation 3 Slim 120GB (Black)
PlayStation 3 Slim 120GB (Black)
"DVD, Blu Ray player, Netflix, and it plays games. 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."
Sony RM-VL600 8-Device Universal Learning Remote (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Sony RM-VL600 8-Device Universal Learning Remote (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"A learning Universal Remote. 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?"
Logitech Harmony One Universal Remote with Color Touchscreen (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Logitech Harmony One Universal Remote with Color Touchscreen (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"I really wanted one of these when they came out. 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"
Rayovac (PS3) Universal Smart Battery Charger
Rayovac (PS3) Universal Smart Battery Charger
"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."
La Crosse Technology BC-700 Alpha Power Battery Charger
La Crosse Technology BC-700 Alpha Power Battery Charger
"To fuel your gadgets you need power, at least many gadgets. 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."
Rayovac Rechargeable Hybrid NiMH Batteries, AA-size, 4-count Carded Pack Pack of 2 (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Rayovac Rechargeable Hybrid NiMH Batteries, AA-size, 4-count Carded Pack Pack of 2 (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"Not really silly. I like these batteries. They work well.  Two items I use don't work so well with these, but the devices are outside. Otherwise they are the way to go."
Dockers Men's 5 Pocket Khaki D3 Classic Fit Pant
Dockers Men's 5 Pocket Khaki D3 Classic Fit Pant
"Not sure if these are them.  It's a "Dockers" pair of pants and the label says iconic. The pants I'm thinking of have 5 pockets, the fifth is on the right side and is for cellphones. I'm not sure it's a gadget, but I think they are cool."
Columbia Omni-Dry Ridge 10" Cargo Shorts Mens
Columbia Omni-Dry Ridge 10" Cargo Shorts Mens
"Cool shorts. If this model/year is the same as the one I'm thinking of, it has a separate zip pocket for wallets (when traveling) or cell phones or keys, etc. Comfortable"
Connections 1 [5- Disc Set]
Connections 1 [5- Disc Set]
"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."
Iomega Prestige 1 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive 34275
Iomega Prestige 1 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive 34275
"1 TB - 1024 GB, 1,048,576 MB 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."
Bosch AE-9.5 PowerStar 1.5 GPM Point-Of-Use Indoor Tankless Electric Water Heater
Bosch AE-9.5 PowerStar 1.5 GPM Point-Of-Use Indoor Tankless Electric Water Heater
"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."
LEGO Star Wars Midi-Scale Millennium Falcon #7778
LEGO Star Wars Midi-Scale Millennium Falcon #7778
"More silly stuff. Lego's Star Wars Lego Millennium Falcon. Very cool, but you have to have some place to put it. "The more complex the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play." - Star Trek I don't know if it's true, but I'd like to think so."
LEGO Ultimate Building Set - 405 Pieces (6166)
LEGO Ultimate Building Set - 405 Pieces (6166)
"Lego parts. 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."
Groom Mate Platinum XL Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer
Groom Mate Platinum XL Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer
"Hows this for a guy thing? Unsightly nose or ear hair?"
Leatherman 830850 Skeletool CX Multitool
Leatherman 830850 Skeletool CX Multitool
"Hows this for guy stuff. A tool box in your pocket.  This one even has bit driver.  I'd prefer a little ratchet one, but in a pinch, this would work."
Leatherman Bit Kit
Leatherman Bit Kit
"For those of you unclear on what a bit driver is.  It holds bits, little screwdriver heads. This one has 40 different attachments, for like $14.  not bad. Big "Guy" thing.  Best part you can use these in other tools."
Neiko 03044A Mini Ratcheting Screwdriver and Bit Set, Pocket Size Close-Quarters ,1/4-Inch Drive
Neiko 03044A Mini Ratcheting Screwdriver and Bit Set, Pocket Size Close-Quarters ,1/4-Inch Drive
"I have the Sears version (craftsman).  I didn't think to look online when I needed one. 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."
Columbia River Knife and Tool 9070 Guppie Black and Grey Multitool
Columbia River Knife and Tool 9070 Guppie Black and Grey Multitool
"Even the picture is silly It hangs off a belt loop and has a knife, a bit driver, bits (4), wrench and an led flasahlight."
Victorinox Swiss Army Super Tinker Pocket Knife
Victorinox Swiss Army Super Tinker Pocket Knife
"MacGyver anyone? The Super Tinker is better than the normal Tinker because of the scissors. A pocket tool without scissors is just not that useful.  I use the scissors more than just about anything. I'm sure some guys would use the beer/bottle opener more, great, enjoy, drive safely."
Light My Fire Original Swedish FireSteel Scout 3,000 Strike Fire Starter
Light My Fire Original Swedish FireSteel Scout 3,000 Strike Fire Starter
"For you pyromanics out there. Who needs matches with this tool, flint and steel? lighter fluid soaked briquettes for a BBQ Javalogs, firelogs, camping stoves, etc."
Java Log 100% Natural Crackling Fire Log, 3-Pound (Pack of 6)
Java Log 100% Natural Crackling Fire Log, 3-Pound (Pack of 6)
"fireplace logs made from coffee bean waste products"
NSI - Flame Mama Mudflap Pinup Girl Looking Right - Sticker / Decal
NSI - Flame Mama Mudflap Pinup Girl Looking Right - Sticker / Decal
"I'm guessing most people have seen this image on the back of a big rig or whatever. Well how about this one? http://www.wyominglibraries.org/campaign.html just scroll down a little.  So much better.  Come on Amazon, pick this product up. If you're worried, it's not dirty. SFW"
SAS Survival Handbook, Revised Edition: For Any Climate, in Any Situation
SAS Survival Handbook, Revised Edition: For Any Climate, in Any Situation
"SAS - a group of the British Special Forces Their survival guide/handbook.  Covers every climate.  Like that Man vs Wild TV show, he's nuts, but this book has that kind of info. Why this over the US Army Survival Handbook, SAS revised 2009, US Army revised 2008."
Money Wrapper Coin Sorter
Money Wrapper Coin Sorter
"How many of you still use cash? 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."
Jabra Cruiser Bluetooth Car Kit, Speakerphone [Retail Packaging]
Jabra Cruiser Bluetooth Car Kit, Speakerphone [Retail Packaging]
"How many of you talk on the phone in the car?  Is it legal to do in your state? I see all kinds of fools holding their cellphone to their ear. Is there a number I can call to turn them in (no not 911)?  Well, I guess they aren't texting. Anyhow, buy one of these, you won't have to worry about it (or me). Whats the fine in your state?"
Plantronics Voyager 510 Bluetooth Headset [Retail Packaging]
Plantronics Voyager 510 Bluetooth Headset [Retail Packaging]
"If you want to walk around with a big thing on your ear, this is the way to go. I mean look at it, go look at the reviews - over 3100 by the way. I guess a lot of people who own this one have an opinion on it. Anyhow if you drive and talk on the phone, get this or something akin to it. Hey, lets be careful out there. BTW if you have a smartphone, find your insurance companies app."
Tervis 4-Pack Tumbler, 16-Ounce, Clear
Tervis 4-Pack Tumbler, 16-Ounce, Clear
"No, I don't have them. 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."
Samsung USB 2.0 8xDVD Writer External Optical Drive for Mac and PC SE-S084C/RSBN (Gloss Black)
Samsung USB 2.0 8xDVD Writer External Optical Drive for Mac and PC SE-S084C/RSBN (Gloss Black)
"I want one. PC/Mac compatible USB 2.0 so will work on virtually any computer.  Want to burn a cd? home movie? If you get a new computer you still have the drive. Want to use it on your laptop and then your desktop, sure.  You have a PC, but your spouse has a Mac. What about driveless netbooks?"
