Solar Power Bags - On Sale!

By: Lilybee Feb 02, 2009

Nice bag = good thing. Nice bag that will recharge your phone or I-poodle = awesome awesome thing. Nice bag that will recharge your stuff for 40% off. Be still my heart.

Each Noon Solar bag has a paper thin, flexible solar panel on the outside. The solar panel charges a battery pack inside the bag to supply power for your cell phone or gadget. Which is just cool, it doesn't hurt that they're also nice looking and made of sustainable, decomposable materials.

A warning to all GPS owners.

By: Diy maven Feb 02, 2009

created on: 02/02/09

Recently, a friend of a friend had his car broken into. The thieves stole his GPS and garage door opener. Before the guy could get home to change his garage door opener code, the thieves had found ‘home’ on the GPS, opened the garage and cleaned the guy out. So, if you absolutely need to have ‘home’ as one of your waypoints, perhaps a code name for it might be in order. You might want to skip that little house icon too.

With nine 'choose your fave' categories, they're offering to declare your design taste with the least in the three 'styles' they claim to provide. Apparently, I'm 80% Scandanavian, 20% Modern, and not a darn bit country. So, limited, yes, but fun, none the less. I wonder how "Stylemeter" translates from Swedish...
