Flexible hands-free book lightDespite the image above, what we have here is not a lamp designed to highlight boobs. Though that would be cool too. It’s a reading light that actually looks somewhat useful. It features 2 super-flexible arms along with two high-intensity LEDs on each end.

So it will highlight your boobs as if they were in a high-end gallery and let you see what you are reading. It will cost you $14.95 and makes a great gift for the reader in your life who hasn’t gone all Kindle.

blueant020-sbI’m not a big fan of Bluetooth headsets personally; I prefer to just hold my phone to my ear. However, in some states you have to use hands free devices to be able to use cell phones while driving. If you live in one of those states, a Bluetooth hands free kit or headset is required.

Review: In Your Face iPhone Holder

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2009

Review: In Your Face iPhone HolderA while back we told you about the iFlyz iPhone holder, designed to hold your iPhone during long flights. It’s a great idea for sure, but you have to question the whole suction cup idea. You don’t want to trust your expensive gadget to a suction cup.

That’s where the In Your Face iPhone holder comes in. It does pretty much the same thing, for the same price, just in a much safer way as there is no suction cup involved. Instead it uses a much stronger spring-loaded iPhone clamp. I’m happy to report that it does it’s job well and has multiple uses while you keep your hands free.

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2008

VR3 Bluetooth Steering Wheel Console for hands free chattingIn many states you aren’t supposed to hold a cell phone while driving. It’s the law.

She was simply distracted and didn’t have her focus on driving. This VR3 Bluetooth Steering Wheel Console might help those who have trouble doing two things at once.

It gives you hands free wireless chatting directly in front of you, with a design that keeps your hands on the wheel for safety. Sure, it’s ugly as hell, but so is an ambulance ride or a mangled corpse. It’s only $99.99.
