Gorgeous vintage upcycled iPod dock

by Jamie Sanford on October 29, 2010

This is recycling at its best.

A 1958 Arvin Radio recycled as a 2010 iPod dock. Unfortunately GrahamTronic on Etsy doesn’t give more information than that, but I imagine that he would, if you were an interested buyer.  This item is such a good balance of pairing old-school sensibilities with new-school electronic accessories.


This awesome item is listed for $750 on Etsy.

The Blue Mikey iPod Microphone

by Jamie Sanford on April 30, 2010

I am excited about this.

I just recently purchased the Blue Yeti Microphone for a new podcast project, after having had previous good experience with the Blue Snowball Microphone.

UPDATED! (As of July 17, 2012)

The previous version of the Blue Mikey I had mentioned is now outdated, so I’ll share the latest edition that released on September 1, 2012. It’s currently listed on Amazon for $99.99.

Grassy Charging Station

by Jamie Sanford on February 28, 2010

Today’s item is a cool gift for anyone who has a lot of techy devices and a lot of charging cords to go along with them.

I introduce you to the Mxyplyzyk charging station.


I love this, I think it would be great to have on your desk at the office to charge things, it is functional and also brings some non-killable plant life into the space.  (The non-killable factor is huge for some of us without green thumbs.)

This charging station is available from Mxyplyzyk (in either black or white, as seen above) for $28.

Outlets To Go Power Strip

by Jamie Sanford on February 19, 2010

Today’s item is great for anyone with a laptop.  The Outlets to Go Power Strip is small and portable, easy to carry with you in your laptop bag.  I know that during the times I have been in an airport trying to use my computer, that I have often only had access to one outlet, forcing me to choose between plugging in my laptop or charging my Blackberry.

This power strip is a great deal for $13.14.
