Anyroom Wireless Speaker System
I work at home and one of the important things about working at home is to have a dedicated workspace in your house. It could be a home office or just a little corner where you can shift to work mode whenever you enter this zone. But even though I have a dedicated workspace at home I sometimes get the urge to just bring my laptop to another part of the house to give myself a little change in scenery. [Read more…]
Eton Soulra XL
I love listening to music. In fact, I can’t go out without making sure I have my usual gear – two iPods for all of the new music I need to listen to, a Sansa Clip+ that I use for FLAC files, two in-ear buds and two headphone amplifiers. Yes, that’s my normal gear for just going out to run errands. [Read more…]

This is a little odd now, is it? I could imagine people taking another look at you… some would probably sigh in disbelief at how you’re punishing your iPod with a thumbtack. Oh well, it is kind of weird.
ThumbTack is a mini microphone designed for the Nano 4G or Touch 2G. Designed by a company called SwitchEasy, this iPod mic takes the shape of a familiar everyday object, a common thumbtack.
Check out their website and you’d see it available in several colors (white, black & red). You wouldn’t believe the US$13 price tag for a ThumbTack! Isn’t this something worthwhile to plug into your iPods?
This audio gadget is compatible with third party software. By plugging Thumbtack into the available 3.5mm headphone jack, you will be able to use it as a personal voice recorder. This can be handy if you want to record class lectures, office meetings or take a voice memo of important facts or reminders.
Just be careful NOT to mix the ThumbTack with the regular thumbtacks you have. It would be painful to see your iPod investments severely damaged.
