Oh my Gaud… look at her mouse ;-)

So are you feeling like your mouse really just doesn’t fit the rest of your desk’s look or you feel like you need something that will differentiate you from the rest of your colleagues, then look no futher than Neiman Marcus‘s Crystal Computer Mouse. It’s a three optical mouse with enhanced wheel scrolling technology. My only gripe is that it’s not Mac compatible.
For the times when you just feel that you need to impress your friends and make them see just who you really are… (thanks LT)

AJAX Based Online Storage

Looking for a place to store files, but don’t have a Gmail account or don’t know how to use the Gmail FS Shell Extension, then look no further than Box.net where you can store up to a gig of files online, for get this… free. Looks to be a pretty slick interface and they have payment options if you’re interested in having a larger file store out there.
This beats good ole Strong Space at the lower level tier plan, but can’t compete when you need 160 Gigabytes of online storage space. Granted, they serve two different communities of interest, the Box for online file storage, Strong Space for massively large rsync backups.

Looking for a new ride?

If you’ve recently gone and bought a new car, say an SUV or a gas guzzler of some sort, I think you might be feeling the pain in the wallet or purse perhaps. I know that with the recent aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, gas prices rocketed upwards overnight due to the lack of oil refining capacity that our country lacked. People started taking public transportation in the Northern Virginia area hoping to save a buck or two.
Now, it would seem that Loremo AG will be introducing an ultra efficient car that runs on a two cylinder turbo charged diesel engine. Get this though, it has an approximate 157 mile per gallon fuel to gas ratio. Granted, I’m confident that this will be lower for city drivers, it’s quite impressive.
Things to think about though, how would this car handle in an accident? Probably not so well considering that it’s entire weight is a mere 990 pounds, though apparently it still has room for four and hey, they tout the fact that they’ve designed the car to be more focused on safety and efficiency rather than “unnecessary functions”.
