    Wanted: iPhone 4-Lens Case

    I have a Canon T3 and it’s a great camera. But there are times – a lot of times, actually – when it’s not particularly convenient to drag around a big camera bag. That’s why I’m tempted by this iZZi Gadgets Phone Case. It has wide angle, macro and telephoto lenses that work with the iPhone 5 and 5s. There are only a few reviews posted so far, but they are all positive. I’m thinking it may be worth trying out. $84.79 at amazon.com.

    Swiss Army in Style

    This amazing hair clip from Leatherdos (just $9.99) pulls double duty as an entire tool box. You can use it as a cutting tool, screwdriver, allen wrench and ruler. Oh, and it also keeps your bangs out of your eyes. I feel like if I buy one of these I will instantly become a female MacGyver.

    Spaced Out

    It’s like Urban Outfitters crawled into my brain and came up with the ultimate you-don’t-need-it-but-you’re-gonna-buy-it product. This Moon Phase Clock is available in black and white for $88. I have to say, the white is by far the cooler choice with it’s visible gears.

    UPDATE: The same clock is available on Amazon for just $71.

    News (and Music) Junkies Rejoice

    No bones about it, I’m an NPR junkie. I get all of my news from NPR – especially in the mornings while I’m getting ready for work. Typically, I stream the local station from my iPhone, meaning I miss a lot while I’m in the shower. Until now. This bluetooth shower speaker lets you stream your music (or your NPR app) anywhere in the house. Can’t wait to get one.

    Ice Cream Party

    An ice cream sandwich maker complete with sandwich presses? Yes, please. Apparently, this isn’t new news, but it’s news to me.

    Not Just for Kids

     

    The hörbert MP3 player says it’s made for kids…according to my very limited German vocabulary. I refuse to play by those rules. If I ever run across one of these stateside, you can bet it will find a permanent home on my desk.

    Just Not Cutting It

    I’ve never been a fan of the rolling pizza cutter. It just seems more likely to take a finger off than cut through a crispy crust. And, at any rate, the slices all end up uneven no matter how much geometry I work in my head before starting in on the slicing. These pizza sheers solve both problems with a wedge-shaped spatula attachment that allows you get perfect slices and serve them all-in-one.
