Nokia Gun Cell Phone

This is the weirdest image of a concept cell phone I’ve seen in quite a while. Despite being disturbing on so many levels, this Nokia gun cell phone is just a photoshopped image. Take the picture of a gun, take a cell phone picture and the logo of Nokia and you will have the most dangerous cell phone out there. On paper! It wouldn’t have space for actual bullets to be dangerous but when other

LG SH490, another cell phone for the ladies

Hey ladies! This is your last chance, so that you know, to tell Santa that you’ve been… obedient (it’s just a manner of speaking) and that you all deserve to receive everything that you’ve asked. Let’s be honest, “ask” isn’t precisely the right word for what you’ve done in the past couple of weeks, because the supplications can better be described with another verb: “Nevertheless, for those of

SnaptureFlash wants to add Xenon flash to the iPhone

Folks behind the popular camera application for the jailbroken iPhones, Snapture, have unveiled their latest idea. The so called SnaptureFlash is a light (thanks to its durable Poloy Carbon casing) Xenon flash attachment for the iPhone which, as you can imagine, can sing along their camera app. In addition, it’s red-eye reduction capable and will also amplify iPhone’s way-too-quite speakersFrom

Electronic football for your iPhone

When you’re writing about a specific subject on a regular basis and you feel like doing it for ages, no matter how varied the domain might be, you are tempted to have a tedious time when trying to squeeze out an idea from your imagination.Something like this happens when you’re facing the following situation: as if they weren’t already enough, another iPhone application has seen the light of the

The shop is closed today and for the holidays on Thursday and Friday. I'll keep you posted here on whether we'll be open Tuesday - YES or Wednesday. The snow continues to fall heavily here.

Lunch Box Survey

Check out this fabulous lunch box survey form (pdf) from FamilyFun that you can print out and include in your child's lunch box. What a clever idea!

My favorite part:
"On a scale of 1-5 how tasty was your lunch today? (check one)

5 - Awesome!

4 - pretty GROOVY

3 - just OK

2 - I ate it anyway

1 - 'HERE FIDO...' "
HA! I think "I traded it for _________ " should be one of the options.

My son would hate the absolute utter cuteness of this form, but I bet there are kids out there who would love it. If anyone gives it a try, let us know how you rate!

Thanks, Chelee, for the link!

Agile Lie Detector for iPhone

Here’s an application I’d love to test out. I have to say I’m thinking it won’t actually work since the iPhone isn’t a well equipped machine to uncover the truth or the lies. But the Agile Lie Detector claims it can detect those lies.The application costs $8 to own and I am sure you have figured out buy now the only way it could possibly analyze a human’s reactions. Our voice. That voice stress

Around the World: Indonesian Yellow Rice and Tempeh

Indonesia: land of tempeh! I absolutely adore tempeh. It's got a nutty, mushroomy flavor and a very impressive nutritional profile. For those who haven't met tempeh yet, tempeh is made from cooking and fermenting whole soybeans until they form solid cakes that can be cut into slices and steamed or fried. It's got more bioavailable protein than tofu or plain cooked soybeans, and the fermentation of tempeh makes it easier to digest. Thank you, Indonesia!

Today I fried my tempeh and then coated it with a glaze made from brown sugar, soy sauce, shallot, and red chile. Sweet and spicy! Next to the tempeh is Indonesian Yellow Rice: rice cooked with turmeric, lemongrass, and coconut milk. This dish is prepared in Indonesia for festivals and sacred occasions. It is often shaped into a cone to represent the sacred mountain Meru. I garnished my cone attempt with a fresh chile cut into a flower blossom.

Beneath the rice is a simple Indonesian vegetable pickle -- carrot, cucumber, and shallots pickled with vinegar, sugar, and salt; very easy, sweet and crispy. And for dessert, two little clementines. Citrus was appropriate, as there are more varieties of citrus fruits in Indonesia than I have ever heard of in my life.

Verdict: The pickles were my favorite part, crunchy and addictive. The tempeh and rice were good together, but I really can't wait to eat all the leftover tempeh on top of a big green salad; that's my favorite way to eat tempeh. 4 stars.

Freezing, FEDCO, Seed issues & Monsanto, Good Films! and delicious CSAs

It may be more than they need, but they were much happier about coming down for hot

E1410 and E1117, new Samsung handsets

Samsung is one of those cell phones manufacturers that are very well known for their high-end handsets, but who are conscious about the importance the low-end area has when it comes to gain more and more customers. This means that the low-end cell phones were never neglected by the South Korean, as it perfectly understood that, in these difficult crisis times, the spectrum should be

Vertu masterpiece for Boucheron

Hello, my name is Maria and I think I’m luxury cell phones addicted. It must be that, otherwise I don’t understand why I've written so many articles on such devices. Vertu, Bellperre, Mobiado, GoldVish, they were all sources of inspiration in the past couple of weeks for someone who, as a matter of fact, isn’t very much into high-class mobile phones. I mean, come on, the only reason for me to own

Motorola V750, a shock resistant mobile phone

Not another rainy day! I woke up in the morning and, casting a short glance at the world outside my smoky window, I realized that this is, again, one of those days when you’d rather spend your whole 24 hours inside your house than confronting the bad weather. But I'm not the only one who hates these cold rainy days. My phone doesn’t like it either. He’s so sensitive to the cold and the rain, that

Givori Nefertiti luxury cell phones

I don’t know how many times I’ve said before that I don’t like luxury cell phones. But my attitude towards such devices is not only inoffensive, but also tolerant, because I know that everything exists for a reason. There are so many people who love them, so who am I to argue their decision to own expensive cell phones that dazzle each and every human being that dares to give them a short glance?

Healthy Holiday Appetizers

...from Pillsbury, of all places. The other day I picked up a copy of the "Pillsbury Holiday Appetizers" magazine at the grocery checkout stand. I was drawn to this adorable Christmas Tree Vegetable Platter on the cover:

Isn't it cute? What a great appetizer to bring to a holiday party, with a healthy vegan dip on the side (I'm thinking hummus, Yumm! Sauce, vegan ranch, guacamole...) You could even substitute some carrot sticks for the pretzels.

The magazine had several other healthy-sounding vegan appetizers: Fig Spread, Salsa-Lime-Bean Dip, Roasted Green Beans, and Lettuce Bundles. Wow, who knew?

Are any of you planning to bring healthy vegan dishes to holiday events?

P.S. Speaking of Pillsbury, aren't some of their products "incidentally vegan"? It seems to me I remember picking up a package of their refrigerator crescent roll dough or something, and noticing that it was oddly animal-free ... then carefully setting it back down and backing slowly away.

Samsung Memoir to Replace the Behold or the Pixon

It clearly seems that all we get these days in terms of new mobiles are blurry pictures and this is the case here as well. Even though there are many saying that a new Samsung is coming to the U.S., in the end, after reading the so-called “explanations” available, the general impression one gets is that nobody has a clue about it.In any case, this seems to be a rumor worth paying attention to,

Sony Ericsson Brittany, Walkman Phone Coming Next Year

Sony is said to be bringing in a new kind of music device, since its older ones are now a bit outdated. Of course, there is also the possibility that it’s somehow trying to compensate for the recent, not so successful period, which has pretty much left a mark on its activity.Actually, the Swedish-Japanese company, as it was first introduced, is in fact working on an entire line of walkman phones

Sony Ericsson Introducing K660i Lime White

This Sony does not benefit from the most sought after and appreciated features, but at least it's trying. Should we consider the effort that went into it and the fact that it somehow feels a bit more appealing in its new color, then we simply have to take a look at its specs again, just in case we change our mind about it.Since we began with the design, let's say that its measurements of

What's Santa Shmoo giving to all the good girls and boys?

I usually bake homemade sweets for all our neighbors and friends at the holidays, but this year I decided to give everyone Gourmet Red Wine Soup Mixes instead.

My friend Renee makes these soup mixes -- all natural, all vegan, low in sodium (hooray!), and yummy, too. You just add water or broth and they're done in less than an hour. My favorite is the Red Wine Vegetable Bean (I like adding cooked brown rice and baby spinach to it).

I'm putting them into little gift boxes for my friends and family along with a package of crackers and some fresh clementines.

I hope people don't mind the healthier gift this year. With all the diabetes, heart attacks, and high blood pressure I've been a witness to this year, I couldn't bear to make everybody another batch of cookies and fudge.

Shmoo Review: Holiday Book Ideas

Are you all done with your holiday shopping? If you're still looking for some gift ideas I've put together a list of some of the books I've been enjoying lately...

1. For those with allergies: Alisa Fleming has just released a new edition of her book Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook for Milk Allergies, Lactose Intolerance, and Casein-Free Living.This book includes all the good stuff of the original -- a comprehensive guide to dairy substitutes, grocery shopping information, chapters on health and calcium concerns, food allergy resources, and more -- plus updated information and a lot more recipes (over 225!)

2. For the bento fan: Hawaii's Bento Box Cookbook: Fun Lunches for Kidsis about the cutest thing going. If you love to coo over lunches that look like teddy bears, princesses, mermaids, or little mice, this is the book for you. I have to warn you, the recipes are not vegan, but that shouldn't stop you from using this book for inspiration; substitute vegan deli slices and cheese and white veggies like jicama or daikon for the bologna, cheese, and fishcake in the designs.

(Also, if you like bento, manga, or Japanese cooking in general, I'm sure you'll like The Manga Cookbook,another book I really got a kick out of this year.)

3. For the athlete: For information about vegan athletes and nutrition, check out Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimal Performance in Sports and Lifeby professional Ironman triathlete and vegan, Brendan Brazier. His book offers up sound advice for athletes along with all-natural recipes for gels, sports drinks, smoothies, and bars.

4. For the home preserver: This was my birthday present this year from my mom, who also loves to can and make preserves: Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving.With the economy going the way it is, what could be better than lining your pantry with rows of pretty preserves that you made yourself? And this book is gorgeous, with full color photographs throughout and hundreds of recipes I've never seen before but can't wait to try. (By the way, the "Bruschetta in a Jar" is fantastic.)

That's all the new books I can think of for now. What are some of your recommendations?

P.S. My book(ahem) would also be a great holiday gift for all the vegans and lunch-packers on your list!

Samsung Ego, a luxury cell phone for your alter ego

When you hear your girlfriend saying she’d really like to change her mobile phone, the Vertu she received as a birthday gift this year, it kind of makes you want to scream. You’re smart enough to realize that she doesn’t have a mid-end device in her mind and that another expensive gift will be the first step in creating a huge hole in your bank account. Someone once told me that constancy is the

Kogan Agora, the second Android cell phone

Step one. I have never heard of Kogan Technologies. After doing some research, I found out that I’m dealing with a small Australian-based company. Step two. Android is the software platform and operating system that was specially designed and developed by Google to work with mobile devices. Step three. Try now to connect those two names I’ve just mentioned. It seems, at a first glance, that

BELLPERRE luxury cell phones

Ask the first person you run into to tell you at least one luxury cell phones manufacturer and you’d probably be answered with one of these companies: Vertu, that needs no additional description whatsoever, GoldVish or maybe Mobiado. But what about BELLPERRE? If the name doesn’t ring a bell to you, let me tell you that we’re talking about a Netherlands-based company that designs, develops and

I'm MOLTING .......!

Bbbbuuuuurrrrrrr!!! I know I'm the closest living relative of Tyrannosaurus Rex and they were tough, very tough... and maybe I'm really meant to go through this intense "out with the old feathers and in with the new" right now...

Sony Ericsson T303 Daisy Edition

Products, whatever the domain might be, have the right to behave on market in the manner they “please”, when competing with similar “entities”. They are not all meant to succeed; more than that, some of them disappoint their creators, despite the fact that, at a first glance, nobody would have guessed such a thing. When tragedies happen, marketing departments try their best in finding what went
