Iomega Introduces Leather 250GB Hip Flask, Er, eGo Drive

The people who brought you the camouflage eGo portable USB hard drive have traded the hunting rifle for the meerschaum pipe: the leather-clad 250GB eGo, which goes on sale today for just over $140, will look good in any study, but best in ones where there's a roaring fire and many leather-bound books.

Diamond Laptop for 14k Geeks

This is kind of old, but good for the holidays. There seems to be a market for luxury cellphones and PDAs, but I'm not quite sure who's buying a white-gold laptop.
