Graphite Kindle DX

Graphite Kindle DX

If you simply refuse to buy that other 9.7-inch e-reader that does oh-so-much more because it's actually, you know, color, feast your eyes on the new Graphite Kindle DX ($380). It combines all the benefits of prior Kindle models — like Whispersync book syncing, free 3G wireless for book downloads, the largest selection of e-Books around, and a hardware keyboard — in a new stylish graphite body that also sports an improved display with 50% better contrast. Of course, you're missing out on all the new features of Amazon's improved Kindle books, like audio and video playback, but don't let that stop you.

  • Spyder III Pro Arctic Series Laser

    Not satisfied with the world-dominating green beam of the Spyder II GX Laser, Wicked Lasers has upped the ante with the new Spyder III Pro Arctic Series Laser ($200). Billed as "the world's first 445nm direct blue diode laser," this new portable menace boasts almost a full 1W of power — compared to just 200-300mW for the II GX — a battery life of two hours from a single charge of the Lithium Ion cell, an aircraft-grade aluminum body, and included safety goggles, which you'll need when operating "the most dangerous laser ever created." Take that, Death Star.

  • Bheestie

    We try to be careful with our gadgets, but even the most diligent protectors can be thwarted by a slip from the shoulder while relieving themselves, or by an errant step on a lake- or river-side camping trip. Consider Bheestie ($20) your backup plan. This moisture-absorbing stuff comes in a handy, resealable bag that lets you toss your soaked silicon in and retrieve a dry, hopefully functional device. Unfortunately, it can't un-trigger a moisture sensor, so you'd best hope that iPod or iPhone didn't get too drenched.
