Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2010

They have a special edition phone for every occasion so we kind of expected this one. Oakley and Nokia have teamed up to launch the limited edition Nokia N97 Winter Olympics 2010 edition. If you want one you better not mess around, because as usual they won’t produce very many.

In fact Nokia will release just 200 units. The phone sports the Oakley Thunderbird logo for the Vancouver Olympics laser etched on the back. It also comes preloaded with exclusive Oakley team videos and photos.

Hey photography nerds, check this out. How would you like to drink from your Canon lens? Now a select few can. The press that covered the Olympics not only got to go to Vancouver for 16 days, but they also got this lens-shaped thermos.

Pretty cool swag if you ask us. Those Olympic photographers get all the cool stuff. Funny thing is out of all those photographers only one guy thought to take a picture and put it online.

Beijing Olympics Fuwa mascot miceThe olympics are over, but the gadgets continue thanks to Lenovo. How about a set of five wired USB mice named after each of the Fuwa mascots: Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying and NiNi? If you can believe it, the mouse asymmetrical design took six months to complete, after two hundred or so modifications. We’re taking that one with many grains of salt.

At 1000 dpi optical, the mice are elevated for palm support during prolonged use. The Fuwas are UV painted so they won’t get all scratched up when you make them fight each other on your desk. Each mascot mouse retails for about $20, but it looks like they’re available in China and Hong Kong only.

Freedom Stick laughs at firewalls, Chinese officialsThe Freedom Stick is some sort of propaganda device designed to help those who are paranoid within the great wall of China while the olympics are going on. It’s a USB dongle that comes pre-loaded with software that can secure the communications of almost any computer that it’s connected to.

The developer, Chaos Computer Club of Germany, says that it relies on The Onion Router network to cloak your connections, routing traffic using an anonymous computer so that your Internet usage can not be tracked by say, the Chinese government. It will retail for $30 and is available for the duration of the summer Olympics in Beijing, China. Sounds like a joke. But they are sure to get many sales as the paranoia level in that city will be sky high, both from the government and the people.
