USB 7 Port Hub with Power Switches
Having a lot of hubs is great - you can plug in all of your fun gadgets, even your USB Pet Rock, and they'll be juiced up and ready to go when you need them. But what about those USB devices that you don't want to have on 24/7? What if the lights from your USB Christmas Tree are giving you a migraine? What if your USB Alien has stuck out his inner mouth one too many times today? You could unplug them, we suppose. But if you're anything like us, you have your hub tucked back somewhere out of the way. And by out of the way, we mean, inconvenient to get to regularly for plugging and unplugging. This hub is the perfect solution. It has seven ports and seven power switches, enabling you to turn your USB gadgets on and off without unplugging them. Just a flick of a switch and you can turn off your Big Chap before he drives you crazy, or cut off the juice once your iPod is fully charged. It even has over current detection and protection to keep your devices safe while they're plugged in. Product Specifications 7 Port USB 2.0 Hub with power switches Seven downstream ports can handle high speed (480Mbps) Full speed (12Mbps) and low speed (1.5Mbps) Bus power and self-power mode used Plug-and-play function Over current detection and protection Optional power supply (included, 100-240V) Each USB port has a power switch - only juice the gadgets you need!

Battlestar Galactica Flash Drive
Some of the most tense moments early on in the Battlestar Galactica involved the jump drive. While the FTL allowed faster-than-light movement, spinning it up always seemed to take an eternity when the Cylons were in hot pursuit. But the old girl always made it, often at the very last second. Jump your files from place to place with the Battlestar Galactica Flash Drive. It won't be faster than light, but definitely at speeds ranging from walking to flight, depending on how you travel the Earth. So say we all! Product Specifications Flash drive for fans of Battlestar Galactica Looks just like the old girl herself Can be used by humans and/or Cylons 4 GB of storage

"If you've seen one hub, you've seen 'em all. Thus, we don't see the point of writing about USB hubs here. This one has 7 ports, so you can plug a lot of stuff into it. Got it? Got it. Now, for some facts about the majestic creature known as the octopus. The octopus is a mollusk, just like the oyster. It makes one wonder... if oysters are an aphrodisiac, what would consuming 90 pounds of octopus do? Beating out everyone's favorite Time Lord, the octopus has THREE hearts. Two hearts pump blood through the gills while the third pumps for the rest of the body. Their blood is blue. When escaping a predator such as a dolphin (bad Flipper! bad!) or a shark, an octopus will sometimes shed an entire arm. (Don't worry, it'll grow back.) Sadly, the male octopus dies several months after mating. At least he died happy? Product Specifications Flexible and soft USB hub with 7 ports (Yes, 7. The 8th leg has to hook into the power source, duh.) Plug and play, USB 2.0 specification compliant Length: approx. 24 cm (9.45"") AC power adapter included"
If you're like most geeks, your work environment can be a depressing and sterile place. Designed to crush your soul to squeeze the last few ergs of energy out of each and every wageslave, grey walls, grey carpeting, and anemic flickering fluorescent lighting all combine into something truly evil. Unfortunately, you've got bills to pay, so you punch in every morning and punch out every night feeling a little more dead with each passing day...
Root Vue Farm
Multiple Award Winner, including Dr. Toy and Oppenheim Gold! One unfortunate fact about gardening is that you don't see a lot of the magic because it's under the ground. It's all fine and dandy to plant seeds and then watch them sprout, but what about the other half of the plant? Sure, you could dig up the plant to see the roots, but then it's just about dead. If only there was a sort of ant farm for vegetables.....
Glow in the Dark Toilet Paper
"When we first looked at this product, we weren't terribly interested. ""Glow in the dark TP?"" we said, arching an eyebrow. ""Why on earth would anyone want glow in the dark TP?"" Then the summer thunderstorms rolled in and we lost power. Sure, we could use our flashlight apps to get to the toilet, but... well, we won't go into details. You probably already filled in the rest of that soggy, sad tale yourself. This roll of Glow in the Dark Toilet Paper is great for a multitude of things, including: Power outages Not waking sleeping spouses by turning on lights Camping Safe Halloween costume for the young mummy in your life A gift for the person who has everything Seriously, the more we thought about it, the more we realized that Glow in the Dark TP was a great idea.

Click n Cook
"Every kitchen has an organization system for eating utensils. There's that boxy thing that goes in the utensil drawer and it has compartments for forks, spoons, knives, and other nomming devices. But when it comes to cooking utensils, it's a bit of a free-for-all. Maybe you have a big ceramic jar with serving spoons, spatulas, and salad tongs sproinging out of it. Or you have a colorful basket full of can openers, cheese graters, and corkscrews. Whatever your ""system"" of ""organizing"" your cooking implements, it's hardly organized. Or a system. But with the Click n Cook, digging around for the right cooking utensil is a thing of the past. Click n Cook is a modular spatula system that keeps all your essential utensils in one easy place. The set features a stainless steel storage block, a sturdy ergonomic handle, and five detachable spatula heads: a classic flat spatula, a long and flexible slotted spatula for cooking fish, an extra-wide slotted spatula for when you can has cheezburger, a flexible mixer for mixing brownie batter, and a slotted spoon for stirring pasta. Just snap the attachment into the handle, cook up a storm and release with a click of a button when you’re done. Organizing your cooking supplies has never been easier!"
DC Comics MimoMicro USB Drive & Reader
"The key to being an effective superhero or heroine is to be there when people need you. When trouble is afoot, you're there. When it seems everything is going to hell, you're there. Not only are you there, you're wearing a super awesome outfit and wielding some handy weaponry or tools to get the job done right. We wished for a superhero to help us quickly move files from device to device... and MimoMicro swooped in!

Mini Cupcake Factory
"Cupcakes appeal to the geek because they're entirely made out of cake! Plus, they're teeny and cute, and, for some reason, things that are miniaturized make some of the geek girls here in the office squee with delight! One only has to look at adorable pictures of miniature horses to know the truth of this. So, in the epic battle of cake vs. cupcake, the cupcake has one point for its teenyness, if that's even a word. Another advantage the cupcake has is, due to its size, it has an extremely high crust-to-cake ratio. You know, that outer layer of extra caramelized batter that's soaked up some of the oil and has a slight give to the crumb? Nummy. Also, again - size related, the cupcake cooks in a mere 5 minutes time. So, if you include the time spent mixing and heating the cupcake pan, you're only 10 minutes away from craving to nomming delicious hot cupcakes! ThinkGeek knows you love cupcakes - mostly because we love cupcakes. Consequently, when we found this electric mini cupcake pan, we knocked over little old ladies to get at them. Each one of these little pans heats up in minutes, and cooks 7 cupcakes at a time in 5 short minutes. So you can go from craving to mixing to eating hot delicious cupcakes in less time than it takes to make five 2-minute eggs. Maybe our math is wrong? Apropos of nothing: in the UK, they're called ""fairy cakes."" Unfortunately for our british friends, though, this little guy only has a US 110v plug. Which is fine, really. More for us!"
Secret Agent Phone Holster
Starsky: "Well, here we are again facing danger together in the pursuit of law and order. To the average passerby, we may seem like three ordinary people... on the way up to the maternity ward, to see if it's a boy or girl or something in between. Little do they know that we are three highly dedicated servants of the public." Hutch: "Starsky?" Starsky: "Huh?" Hutch: "Shut up." Whether you're Starsky, Hutch, Ponch, Baker, Thorny, Farva, Mac, Rabbit, Beckett, Crockett, Tubbs, Angel, or Butterman, you'll need to look slick when you're facing danger in the pursuit of law and order.

Flex legs allow users to place the device in desired positions, such as landscape and portrait, for easy use on flat and sloped surfaces. The stand is durable and engineered to protect the iPad from wear and tear while at home or on-the-go.
Etch A Sketch iPad Case
The problem with fancy electronic devices is that people want to steal them. There are how-to guides out there that teach you how to deter thieves by uglifying your digital camera to make it look like an old film camera. But you can't really ugly up an iPad and make it look like something it's not. Sure, you can put it in a notepad-style case, but thieves know to look for those. But what if your iPad looked like... an Etch-a-Sketch? Nobody would look twice at an Etch-a-Sketch in the backseat of your car. This iPad case is as functional as it is whimsical. It's a fully functional, protective iPad case made of impact resistant ABS plastic and molded to look exactly like an Etch-a-Sketch. Know why? It's made in the same factory that makes the original Etch-a-Sketch toy. You can even run the Etch-a-Sketch app while using your iPad in its Etch-a-Sketch case, which is so much awesome that our heads might explode.

Non-Slip Gadget Holder With 4 Port USB Hub
"The problem with computer desks is that they're so darn smooth and slippery. You're shuffling piles of files to look for that missing TPS report when one bumps your cell phone, sending it flying off the edge. Your heart jumps into your throat as you scream, ""MY PRECIOUS!"" (Your voice cracks like a prepubescent boy, too. It's embarrassing.) The world goes into slow-mo as you watch your baby tumble to the floor just as the mail cart turns the corner, wheels squeaking. You launch yourself from your not-so-ergonomic desk chair and make a daring leap into the hallway, shielding The Precious with your body. Sure, you take a mail cart to the ribs, but it's less painful than the thought of losing your phone. This scenario does not have to happen to you! Save your ribs, your phone, and your sanity with the non-slip gadget holder. It holds your phone, mp3 player, or other preferred gadget at a handy viewing angle. The non-slip surface will withstand even those times when you dance on your desk when your code finally works right. Oh, and did we mention it's also a 4 port USB hub? Totally, and it's got the connection cables to charge just about any type of phone you may have. (But really, for maximum geek cred, we can count on one monkey paw the amount of phones worth using.) No more desktop slip n'slide - your gadget is safe and secure!"
Doctor Who Dalek Projection Clock
There you are, cozy in your PJs dreaming about a new season of The Doctor, when it hits you - you are not alone. Looming out of the dark and nebulous reaches of reality you can hear them as they float towards you, giant toilet plunger manipulator appendages at the ready, gunsticks aimed for you. It's them. They're here. You run, but you can't escape. Just as fear and panic put an icy grip on you, you sit bolt upright in bed, eyes glued to the ceiling, awake. You can still hear them...
USB Mushroom Lamp
"Ever wonder what Mario would do if he couldn't lay pipe or rescue princesses anymore? Would he get a desk job? His fingers are a little too fat for data entry, so maybe Mario could get an entry level job at a call center, where he can sit in an ultra-tiny cube and answer the phone, ""It's-a Mario! How canna I help you today?"" And clearly, should Mario be a cube dweller, he'd want to illuminate his workspace with these super cute Mushroom Lamps. The red lamp makes Mario sit a little taller and the green lamp gives him the energy needed to power through until the weekend. If you put them on your desk, they may do the same for you! Each lamp is powered through USB and the inner light is provided by magic... or two super bright white LEDs, believe what you will.
