Garmin Nuvi 350

Garmin Nuvi 350 Pocket Vehicle GPS Navigator and Personal Travel Assistant

We gladly admit we love the Garmin brand.
Just like the Apple concept, they keep on releasing great GPS navigators that look very modern as well. Take the Garmin Nuvi 350 for example. This looks like a miniature flat screen with a total weight of 5.1 ounces.

Nuvi 350 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator® NT street maps, including a hefty points of interest (POIs) database with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and Nuvi 350 takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. Nuvi 350 even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. In addition, nĂ¼vi 350 accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. The European version of Nuvi 350 even includes a preloaded safety camera database containing the location of safety cameras for parts of Europe...a welcome addition since Europeans like to speed but not so much the tickets.

HBM Super Suspension Lamp

HBM Super Suspension Lamp

We love this new lamp,
a lamp with a unique "personality", capable to relate with the environment and to modify your perception. It is an exclusive object beeing at the same time a sculpture and a lamp: when it's switched off it becomes a greatly expressive object, lit up, thanks to an advanced result with translucent materials, it is able to give great effect both inner and in public surroundings. HBM is made of circular disks with a hole in the middle, bent sideways and paired.

Biodegradeable plates, bowls, etc

Biodegradeable plates, bowls and cups

The Eco Ware line is the result of experimenting with biodegradeable plastics made from compressed natural materials such as byproducts of coconut, rice and bamboo processing. Tom Dixon created this line of biodegradeable plates, bowls and cups dubbed Eco Ware . This elegant line of sustainable tableware is 85% bamboo bound with a water-soluble polymer.

Eco Ware is fine enough for formal occasions, tough enough for the outdoors, and robust enough for every-day use. The best part is that after a long functional life (5 years give or take), the Eco Ware objects can be recyled into plant pots or simply composted back to the earth.

Whole Apple Market?

Whole Apple Market?
Not a bad idea!
The Birth of the Organic Computer is near!

Since it is Friday, just before a Holiday Weekend, we were just scratching our heads. Last night, one of our tech guys had a crazy dream in which both Apple and Whole Foods Market were announcing a merger. In this dream, he remembered Steve Jobs declared his love for Organic Food and.... John P. Mackey of Whole Foods Market love for (Organic) Apple(s).
So in this dream, a super merger took place that created a massive buzz. Apple would create organic computers and Whole Foods Market would sell them through their network of rapid expanding stores. In this dream, our tech guy even had a vision of the new logo which he designed this morning!

But when we checked http://www.wholeapplemarket.com/ it was still available this morning, never registered. So I guess it was just a sweet organic dream...

We dare you to follow up on this story 10 years from now however.
I am certain that Steve Jobs who will read this blog, will go ahead on Tuesday with our idea. You just wait and see! Organic Apples, we love the idea!

In the time being, you can proceed buying great apples from:



FREE Apple iPhone anyone?

FREE Apple iPhone anyone?

Here's an Apple iPhone story that you will not read anywhere else (unless it gets copied a gazillion times by other blogs before the day ends).

The craze for Apple's new iPhone resulted in long wait lines in front of Apple- and AT&T stores. Hundreds and hundreds more expected to join on line before they go on sale tonight!

At least, Apple fans are as stylish as their Apple products. Most of them are wearing a suit & hat...as the picture shows. We could not recognize any tailored suites by Armani but they were still a classy bunch indeed.

The Apple iPhone stampede might possibly be even compared now to "The Running of the Bulls" of Pamplona Spain. Sidewalks are taking their toll although a maximum Apple iPhone purchase limit per person was rumoured to have been established late last night.

Some Apple iPhone gadget fans have waited on line since Wednesday just to make sure to be first in line when Apple's iPhone is released. Apple's iPhone is scheduled to be sold from 6 p.m. local time in each U.S. time zone. In New York City, one man had a sign around his nick which read "FREE Apple iPhone if you take my spot" (he was among the first in line at the Apple store in Manhattan). The only drawback; he wanted $5,000.00 to give up his first-in-line spot. So I guess there's no such free Apple iPhone unfortunately. Most people on line wanted to have the Apple iPhone for their own collection. Many of them already had the Apple iPod so they had time to enjoy music while waiting on line. Other people who were waiting on line told us that they intended to give the Apple iPhone as a present for family or friends. Others were told to stand on line by their employers (a job is a job). And a couple of people even thought they could sell the first Apple iPhone on with a mark up. The good news is that AT&T seems to be rolling out plans which are less costly than first thought: the basic plan would start at just $59.99 a month. AT&T will be the exclusive carrier for the Apple iPhone for at least the next two years.

Amazing that AT&T got the deal, but at the end, there's nothing like the sound of a fine tuned bell.
