1950s Ericofon Is Back! 
While we know many of you have ditched your landlines for cellphones and VoIP, those of you who still have phone jacks may be interested in the reintroduction of the Ericofon -- now called the Scandiphone.

The Ericofon was introduced in Sweden in the mid 1950s. The unique upright talker was smaller and lighter than anything seen before, infact it was the worlds first all-in-one phone. To achive this the bell has to be taken out and attached to the wall(!) In 1973 it was selected to be part of the New York Museum of Modern Art's Collection.

Up until now it looks like the Scandiphone was only available in the U.K, but this year Keena brings it to US as well. I think I should try to lay my hands on one of these...

The Incredible Camera Lens Calendar 
I want this one. It's a camera lens with a calendar. No it's not, it's actually the other way around. But it's so cool! This is going to be the perfect gift for anyone who loves photography. I love this low-tech solution to the calendar quandary, since it's nice to have one on your desk, why not have a really distinctive one. And there's nothing more distinctive than a calendar looking like a camera lens!

Nytt vitrisskåp 
Vi har köpt oss ett nytt vitrinskåp. Det var nog det enda jag såg av alla jag kollade på som hade 3 sektioner men det passar precis in där det står mellan badrummet och köket så det blir perfekt. Vi har vår fina servis som vi fick i bröllopspresent och som vi fortfarande samlar på som ska stå där och en hel del annat som står trångt i köket eller i förrådet. Det är kul att få nya saker ibland :)

Touch-table Ordering  
Located on Wardour street in Soho, London, Inamo is oriental fusion with a technological twist. You order your food by touching the illustrated menu that is projected onto the surface of your table. You can even order a cab when you are done dinner. Something I would love to try out.

Windows 7 Beta Up For Grabs 
The next Microsoft OS Windows 7 is now available for the public as a beta release. This next OS looks VERY promissing at this point, as compared to Vista which is really crappy. I can tell that first hand from my time at HP.

Among some new features and other enhancements the most obvious improvments are speed and stability. If you can manage a 2,4 GB download and got some spare hardware, go grab it now!

Årets julgransplundring är över 
Så var ännu ett veckoslut till ända. Och den här gången tog den julen med sig. Så ungarna och jag har ägnat dagen åt att klä av julgranen så att den kan slängas ut på tisdag - senast. Igår var vi också nere i Bollmoradalens kyrka där det var julgransplundring, glömde dock kameran hemma så några bilder blir det inte. Det var första gången för barnen i kyrkan men jag ska försöka gå oftare på familjegudstjänster. Tyvärr är de inte så ofta... Idag stod jag och suktade över några semlor på fiket också, det blir att äta några framöver innan de försvinner den 12 april.

Space Shuttles For Sale 
NASA is planning to raise money by selling off its space shuttles when they stop flying in 2010.

The U.S. space agency is in much need of money in order to produce the next generation Ares rockets, which will attempt to return astronauts to the moon.

And they may raise some funds by selling off their space shuttles, at a cost of at least $42 million.

The advertised price is just the starting figure for any one of the orbiters Discovery, Atlantis or Endeavour, which between them have flown 86 missions into space since 1984.

Included is the minimum $6 million cost of stripping a shuttle of toxic and other hazardous materials, preparing it for travel and flying it to an airport of the buyer's choosing.

Maybe something for your garden?
