Still searching for an appropriate lunch container? This box/bowl seems to have everything you’d need, a ‘glass like’ lid, sauce pot and dipping area, and inner dish for splitting food. Maybe perfect for salad and/or heating up food, perhaps. A fork/knife completes the package.
Made from polypropylene and copolyester (BPA free).
Purchase Information:Price: $21.99

It’s about time this happened. I must have spent a good hour or so searching for a good kindle case/cover, only to settle on the OCTOVO Kindle Sleeve for lack of a better option*. If this had been available, I would have snapped it up in a second. A suede lining and double-stitched corner elastic straps to keep Kindle in place, and for notes, there’s a Moleskine reporter-style notebook.
Fits 6″ Latest Generation Kindle.
*I do like the Octovo sleeve, by the way. It’s super slim and the Kindle slips in nice and snug. There’s also no worries about screen damage as it’s a sleeve instead of a book-style cover.

100% wool felt with protective bumps makes these colorful sleeves handy for e-readers or laptops, and the fact that they’re by MIO makes them even better (because they’re nice guys).
Designed by Jaime Salm and Brian Kelly, manufactured by MIO

That’s right, Moleskine has added quite a few United States cities to its collection of city notebooks. The city map is invaluable, and there’s tons of room for making notes on shops and restaurants to revisit (or avoid). I fully recommend getting whichever one for exploring whatever city you’re visiting, as I’ve found mine extremely handy to have.

How much do you want this tiny (super-cute) little speaker for your iPod or MP3 player? It has a rechargeable internal Lithium Polymer battery (with a USB connector) and a standard 35mm jack to connect to your audio source. There’s a telescoping antenna so you can listen to FM radio as well.
Made of apricot wood.

Utilitarian materials and a simple design set this sleeve apart from the pack. At first the no-zipper worried me a little, but upon further inspection the elastic bands seem to do the job just fine. It’s really the materials that stand out though- asphalt grey felt with a large vegetable-tanned leather pocket give a natural feel, which is a nice balance to the device they protect.
Also check out their other various cases at hardgraft.com, especially their iPad Case (59.00 EUR) and Phone Case (45.00 EUR). (I’m also sort of considering buying their kindle case, as most I’ve seen online are sort of boring.)
Purchase Information:Price: €79.00

Actually, it’s just the little pomegranate-colored thing plugged into the dock connector. And that combined with the free app turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a sleek little universal remote. The system is completely customizable to feature as many or as few buttons as you’d like (up to 100,000) and has the brain power to replace up to 1,000 individual remotes: TV, cable, DVR, etc.

You probably recognize this text from all the plastic bags you’ve seen it on, right? Well, now you can thank yourself for shopping each and every time you use this reusable tote. For anyone that is die-hard enough to care, the design is copied exactly as the original (the last “s” is upside down).
Made in the USA of natural organic Grade A canvas
16.5″ x 16.”

Okay, now that this thing is actually available for sale, I’m curious as to how well it works. Anyone know? It sounds almost too good to be true. It’s made from BPA-free recycled plastic (so it’s also recyclable) and has a carbon-based filter which lasts about the equivalent of 300 water bottles. There’s six different filter colors to choose from too.
Designer: Karim Rashid
Bottle comes with a single filter. Filter lasts for 50 gallons/300 bottles.
(Replacement filters are $7.00)
Purchase Information:Price: $10.00
