the gizmo
There are just too many easy jokes here. This product claims to track down your lost golf balls. The site states “It can search up to 600 square feet in one second or almost 1/7 of an acre in 10 seconds!” It also has lots of talk about “proprietary GLS golf ball locating system technology”. Yikes! Sounds like it’s full of magic stuff. Endorsed by Nick Faldo! Either way, if it works it has potential to be a great gizmo.

the gorgeous
In honor of Earth Day, the gorgeous has met the green. A beautiful alternative to traditional renewable energy sources. By London-based XCO2, this wind turbine has one moving part to ensure reliability and reduce maintenance. It also claims to be virtually silent and vibration free which would make it ideal for urban locales. One available model even comes equipped with embedded LEDs making it capable of creating beautiful visual displays. Make sure you click some of the links on the left of the site.

the green
Summer is coming and soon the land fills will be stocked high with the remnants of all of our BBQs. Don’t add to this already huge problem. So when you plan your next outdoor gig, grab yourself some of these new Preserve plateware and cutlery products. They are made of 100% recycled plastic, are dishwasher safe and can be recycled unlike ordinary plastic cutlery.

the gossip
Apple has been busy at the patent office. It looks like Apple is working on a highly portable PC with a touch screen. In some of the patents they describe “activation of virtual keys of a touch screen keyboard” and “allows you to manipulate images on the screen with several fingers”. Mmmmm, tasty glazed tidbits…
