USB Desktop Digital Photo Frame

by Jamie Sanford on September 1, 2010

Today’s item is a cute digital frame to plug into your computer!


A very cute, 3.5-inch digital frame that can subtly feature some favorite photos.

The Portable 3.5″ USB Digital Photo Frame is a versatile inexpensive frame that wants to be your friend. It’s powered by a built in rechargeable battery, but is perfectly happy to sit and sip power from the USB port on your laptop. It has a headphone jack and can play MP3 files in a pinch… and supports standard SD cards. The bright hi-res screen has good contrast with a nice viewing angle. Since it’s light and needs no cords the Portable 3.5″ USB Digital Photo Frame is perfect for sticking up on memo boards or refrigerators (double sided foam tape not included). It just wants to show you your photos and make you happy.

Love that it plays songs too! The mini digital frame is available for $39.99 from ThinkGeek.

Sunday Link Party!

by Jamie Sanford on June 28, 2010

This week was a bit tough, upgrading to WordPress 3.0 was troublesome. I am back in business though, and it’s time for some Sunday links.

Picture of the week – from a trip I took to Dubai a few years ago, I’ve been thinking about going back.

The red sand was stunning. This was taken during our duning adventure.

Get ready for it – the top 10 cutest cats from Zooborns.

I guess that giving the iPhone testicles will appeal to some people?

Great collection of social networking visuals from Edelman Digital.

Gorgeous desk posted on IKEA Hacker. I wish it wasn’t facing the wall though.

I had a friend email me the link to this video, and I find it really inspirational for a number of reasons. Mostly though, great song, great scenery, and photographers!

Recycled Keyboard Pencil Cup

by Jamie Sanford on May 18, 2010

I do enjoy items made of recycled materials.  In college, I took a faulty keyboard and painted it before hanging it on the wall.  It was hideous, but my intention was clear.

Today I’m featuring a cute desk item, a pen/pencil cup made from recycled keyboard keys.


The cup is available in round or square options, and is $11.99.
