I Can See Clearly Now, Part III

Why does stuff have to be so darn expensive? This is the iGen Night Vision Viewer, and it would be so cool to have at Burning Man. (Mostly to play "spot the lurking law enforcement officers.") $700 at SkyMall, but it can be found for under $500 elsewhere online. SkyMall's satisfaction guarantee is pretty tempting, though:

Satisfaction. Your complete satisfaction is our first concern. If you're unhappy with any purchase, for any reason, you can return it within 60 days for exchange or refund. Guaranteed.

Sounds a lot like "Free Rental for Burning Man" to me...

Clever Little Wine Rack Substitute

The Wine Wedge — $14.95. I spotted this on Gizmodo, and they were all yakkety-yak-yak about it. Doesn't the picture pretty much speak for itself?

By the way, does it seem like an inordinate number of my posts here have to do with alcohol accessories? Totally unintentional, I assure you.
