You’ve heard me say a time or two that I am a self proclaimed tech geek. I love my computers, gadgets, and iPhones. I love to try out the newest techy toy. Technology is power, and fun! I would easily give up my cable TV as long as I had my computer an internet, a move my husband would strongly disagree with. I was excited when the iPad came out and just as disappointed that I do not have one. So if anyone has one they would like to donate feel free to send me your email I will be happy to send you my address.
When I had the chance to work with Think Geek one of my IT guy (at works) favorite stores. I had a hard time choosing what would be fun to review. Of course I always have a hard time when it comes to fun/want versus logic/need. Either way it was great browsing through the site. My kids would have LOVED this jelly fish mood lamp, however I did not chose this.
How funny, while browsing I found this Outdoor LCD Window Thermometer. I actually already own this, my son gave it to me as a gift. He won it at school I think.
Now if I was thinking practical, logical, and something we would use this Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock with Bed Shaker. Now that is something we could use in the Shibley household. Seriously I think I’m the only one that hears an alarm clock in the morning. I think if we had a fire alarm going off my entire house would still be sound asleep. I may just have to get this for Buddy for Christmas, we are trying to teach him to be responsible and get up on his own in the morning.
In the end I actually did chose something practical yet fun. Ok maybe more practical then fun to most. I decided to go with the Lilliput Mini USB Monitor. When do I use this? Well when I blog of course. I’m very often talking to a friend of mine on the computer and we talk using the gmail chat. So I’m constantly having to minimize my screen to talk. With this 7″ extra monitor I can move her chat right over to the screen and see it at all times. Very nifty and easy to use, makes blogging and chatting a whole lot easier.
