Ok, first thing that flashed in my mind “Why didn’t I invent this!”. Such a cool concept from Japanese designer Yuta Watanabe. He calls this as the “peg pencil”. It’s his version of a mechanical pencil made of spring activated (and re-modified) clothe’s pin. You can all see most of his recent work on his website http://www.yutawatanabe.com/. Really creative work showcasing the Japanese creative mind.
Ayayay! I wonder how Yuta thought of the peg pencil. I am arround clothe pins all my life and yet it has never come across to me that this can morph into something really cool. Step up for Yuta and loud high-fives.
Anyway, back to tech stuff. Did you know that Apple has once again upgraded their clip iPods? Their 1GB model now retails for $49 while their new clip iPod 2GB model retails for $69. Not sure if it’s in apple stores yet, but yes, I will be in line for one of the 2GB babies the moment it hit shore.
Now the only thing that I am yet to discover is if I can juggle all these iPods I have on a single iTunes program/account. I think I read from somewhere before that it’s a tricky setup. I have the 512MB 1st Gen iPod Shuffle, an 80 GB 5th Gen video iPod, a 4GB nano… yeah yeah… many pods there, but we’re three in the family and you know how it is. Sometimes one just ain’t enough in this dang multi-tasking world.
Fearless prediction: by the end of the year the clip iPods will reach 8GB at $69 a pin. Tech is getting cheaper as we speak, is it a good idea? For the early adopters… hahaha (wink wink).
