Typing machine

Here's another laptop skinning company (that sounds rather disgusting, but you know what I mean).

As usual, many are hideous. But I like this one.

Kids do eat lunch

This is a great-looking lunchbox, but I can't get my hands on one! They only ship in October, plus I probably can't afford one. But I can covet!

Anyway, it comes with boxes for food that fit perfectly inside (good idea -- I'm always cramming stuff into my daughter's lunchbox, running around the kitchen swearing under my breath and looking for lids...). And you can strap a water bottle on top, like so:

The designers are US-based but Dutch, from the land of so much good design (and pretty hot guys).

Everything is OK

I love this -- love this.

You know that yellow police tape -- we've all seen it.

Well, this is that...only with a slightly different message: "everything is ok."

I swear, it's not pretentious in action, at least not from the photos I've seen. There's something just perfectly absurd about it, and the idea is so simple in execution. I mean, we know it's not all ok and yet just saying it just turns things slightly on their metaphorical heads. (Hmm, not well written, but I'm tired -- let's move on.)

It's hard to see in the picture, but there are also stickers and a general warning that is pretty funny if you're a lefty.

Via Gizmodo and whole bunch of other blogs comes this pretty awesome espresso machine. It puts my Saeco Aroma to shame, that's for sure. Judging from the picture it takes pods, however, and I'm not a pod person (so to speak). But FrancisFrancis! has some competition...

Sip to sip

Following on the Born Free/Thermos/Klean Kanteen trend of "safe" sippy cups comes this one, which is cute but looks slightly over-engineered (that's so common with kids' stuff -- they think we'll pay more if it looks complicated and rugged?).
