- Power Outlet with USB Ports True, it hasn't even shipped yet, but who can argue with a $10 wall-outlet replacement that provides two standard outlets and two USB ports? Ours is already on order.
- The Coffee Cup Power Inverter Speaking of outlets, we're still ga-ga over this cup-holder-friendly inverter, which plugs into your cigarette lighter and "serves" two AC outlets and a powered USB port.
- NeatDesk Desktop Scanner Scan and file business cards, receipts, and documents with the touch of a button. That's how simple the NeatDesk is. Granted, the $400 price tag is hard to swallow, but this is one of those gadgets that's worth the investment. I freakin' love this thing.
- Verizon MiFi A 3G Wi-Fi router that's thin enough to slip into a pocket? It almost sounds made up, but that's the MiFi in a nutshell. Use it to broadband-power your laptops, iPod Touches, and any other gizmos in the vicinity. You can scoop one up for just $49.99 (an online-only promotion that's running right now), though you'll also have to pony up $60/month for service.
- LaCie itsaKey USB Flash Drive It's a key -- get it? And it's also a flash drive, one that's available in 4-16GB capacities. Sadly, prices have actually gone up since we first loved on the LaCie ($24.99 for 4GB? Steep!), but show us another drive that's as hip, durable, and keychain-friendly.
