Rubik's Cube Alarm Clock
"The 80's saw many trends come and go - our favorite, of course, was legwarmers, but coming in a close second were those colorful cubic twisty puzzles that boggled our minds. Remember solving them with a screwdriver? Yeah, we did that, too. We won't tell if you don't. Eventually, though, we figured out how to solve the thing properly. Before too long, we got fast at it - fast enough to compete professionally! There's even one monkey that can glance at each side for a few seconds, close his eyes, and solve it in less than a minute. He's a genius, but he's also memorized the phonebook. Up to ""G."" Kinda scary. Since we live the cube, it's time to BE the cube. Our desktops will show our love for the venerable puzzle from the days of Duran Duran. The LCD display of this unique clock shows the time, sure, but give the top-row a twist, and you can switch the display between the Alarm, Calendar, and even the Temperature settings! There were lots of great things about the 80's, certainly. We're just taking those great ideas and updating them for the new millennium. Now, if we can just bring back the piano necktie..."
Into Focus Camera Lens Coffee Mug
"A photographer needs to stay alert. That perfect shot lies between moments - 1/250th of a second, your subject is framed perfectly, shadows falling just so, everything is in perfect focus. The next 1/250th of a second, it's a disaster. Motion, blinking, an errant flash somewhere off camera... to be a good photographer, you've got to stay sharp, and quite literally in focus. That's why photographers, like every other subgenus of geek, love their caffeine. It keeps that trigger finger itchy, and ready to let the light in. At it folds through mirrors and lenses and falls onto the medium, whether it's chemically photosensitive film, charged couple device, or metal-oxide-semiconductors, the photographer lends his own personality to the image captured. And it's that photographers personality at play with this new coffee mug. Sure you've seen coffee mugs shaped like camera lenses before, but where those failed, this picks up. First, it's made of ceramic, not plastic. Filling it with hot java won't burn your sensitive fingers. Second, there's a handle. You're not likely to accidentally pour a freshly brewed pot of Ethiopian Sidamo into your prized 24mm to 105mm f2.5 zoom lens if you're expecting a handle through which you loop your index finger. Finally, it's sturdy and can face the rigors of an active photographer's lifestyle. Features Ceramic coffee lens mug Heat resistant. Keeps from scalding your fingers 310 ml capacity (approximate 10 ounces) Perfect for the combination photographer / coffee fiend Comes with rubber ""lens cap"" Dishwasher Safe"
Like/Dislike Stamp Set
"History Time: The thumbs up/thumbs down gesture for approval/distaste (and which gesture means which) comes from Ancient Roman times - specifically, instructions to the gladiator on whether or not to spare his opponent. But here's the thing: the Latin term for this is Pollice verso, which translates to ""turned thumb."" If you consult the writings of old dead Roman people, you'll find even they contradict each other on which one is really approval and which is distaste. But, who cares: we of the present have decreed thumbs up to be good and thumbs down to be bad. And that's the model that the Like/Dislike Stamp Set perpetuates. Each Like/Dislike Stamp Set comes with two, self-inking stamps (that's why we call it a set). Use the Like stamp for things you like and the Dislike stamps for things you don't like. For instance: we like origami - so though we will probably crush the little paper swan, we're gonna stamp it with the Like stamp. We don't like TPS reports, so we'll save the Dislike stamp for that. And why did we provide these further instructions and examples for such a straight forward product? Simple: to fill up space. YAY. Get your Like/Dislike Stamp Set today, and ink up your future with your opinion tomorrow. Like/Dislike Stamp Set Set of two stamps - for every occasion. Self-inking, for your convenience. Set includes one of each stamp. Dimensions: 3"" x 1.25"" x 2.5"""
