When you go watch the new James Bond film, Casino Royale released worldwide on November 17, you will actually be spending money to watch the world’s most expensive commercial (watch it here) by Sony. Sony Vaio notebooks, the new limited-edition Cyber-shot mobiles and the M600i smart phone will be featured in the movie.

The silver K800i and K790i will be available for a limited period of three months, sporting similar features as their earlier black predecessors, but will come preinstalled with James Bond wallpapers, music ringtones and full video movie trailer. The new Cyber-shot phones will be launched in Q4 this year.

The name’s Sony… Sony Ericsson…

ToolLogic Firesteel Knife

October 13, 2006


For the not so caveman who cannot start a fire or kill an animal to stay alive in the wild.

ToolLogic Firesteel Knife features a razor sharp 2″ blade and emergency signal whistle plus a premium magnesium alloy fire starter. The Swedish made Firesteel combined with a special notch on the blade delivers an intense shower of sparks at nearly 3000ºc. It will even spark when wet! Useful… but can’t get it into the plane… maybe you can use it for your home BBQ? Just don’t use it indoors…

Palm lightened up with its Treo line by adding a new GSM model with colours! It should have done so years ago, not every girl like a chunk of blue or black or grey for their smart phone. It might even attract a different group of users now.

Coming in crimson, copper, arctic and graphite, each of these phones come with Palm OS® 5.4.9, a 320×320 color screen, 64MB of internal storage, 312MHz Intel PXA270 processor, quad-band GSM, EDGE class 10, speakerphone, VGA camera, 352×288 video recording, and a full QWERTY keypad.

This hood caught my attention because I did realise its a range hood until I looked at the kitchen table and read the text. This is a range hood with 4 Speed electronic touch screen controls and a Remote Control. And it doesn’t have a big square hole or grills…

Operate the remote by rotating clockwise to increase fan speed, and counterclockwise to decrease the speed. To control the lighting of the vent-hood, simply tap down on the remote control. Nice!
