    Thank you for this great list! Reading this from a hotel room in Tokyo, I can tell you that the Little Printer would be ideal for printing the day's agendas with little maps and Japanese characters I have no idea of how to write.

    It seems " it's all Good..." unless you happen to be poor..! Any one of these "wonder"devices is way beyond what most of the "tekkies" can even imagine some people have to live on and it's beginning to appear that we who wonder where the money is to be made to support the most basic of lifestyles: shelter, food, utilities, clothing, medical/dental care, etc. don't count...Do you get it? These inventions may be wonderful but for MANY they are "frills"... Look around you and find ways to really help those below your digital "radar"! We are "people" too... Thanks

    The images for Bounce Imaging and Phillips Hue are the same. :( Some interesting products though :)

    Good list, but most of these are for iPhone/iOS users. What about some Android love? ;-)

      Don't know about the others, but a competing product to the Hue bulb be released around March 2013 is Lifx. Very similar features (though I believe Lifx annouced their product first). They will have both iOS and Android app. Plus, they connect directly to wifi and group together with one master bulb to the others as slaves, so you don't need to bother with the control box that plugs into your router as you need to with the Philips product.
