Another odd lighting-based set of promotional photographs from Philips, featuring a woman who’s definitely ‘phoning it in’ today from the confines of her recently painted warehouse conversion.

Faces on both tray AND lampshade, as if they’re having a conversation with each other. Which is why she’s feeling left out and is looking around for someone else to talk to as she hasn’t got much in common with the sort of things trays and lampshades talk about.

This one doesn’t seem to have a product in it at all, unless Philips has branched out into laminates and laminate-based furnishings, or huge mirrors. If that even is a mirror. Everything’s a lie these days, isn’t it?

Philips and the ORB of POWER

Looks like Philips is following LG’s lead in the POWER SPHERE field, with the arrival of this ominous, looming presence – which is something to do with a ‘Living Colours’ idea.

INITIAL IMPRESSION: Possibly a bit too invasive for everyday home use.

Light bulbs. Something to do with new kinds of light bulbs. Light bulbs you spend £39.99 on in the hope you save 0.01p per year on electricity.

Hope that’s his woman he’s looking at, and he’s not taking advantage of the other man being distracted by the beer to have a look at his woman.

This lampshade comes with a built-in multi-directional wireless HD video camera.

Hose down a woman, with Hansgrohe’s RainBrain

A company called Hansgrohe has put this inspirational piece of technology on the internet, which lets you interact with a woman in the shower. You can change the flow and temperature, but not the camera.

And putting the dial all the way to cold does indeed get a reaction.

“This is brilliant. You press the buttons on the shower control (RainBrain) and get her all nice and clean. Makes me want to buy one ASAP. This will be a winner on ExtraLast. PS: I don’t work for Hansgrohe, I was just looking to buy a tap for home” – Scott.

“With iPod touch, Mom never has to have a dull moment”

No, it’s OK, you haven’t forgotten AGAIN this year – we’ve just somehow ended up on the Apple US mailing list, where it’s currently trying to convince the Yanks to buy “mom” an iPod Touch for Mother’s Day.

Here, mum, I’ve got you something you won’t understand to emphasise how old and out of touch with modern technology you are. Put it in the cupboard.

APPLE PRETENDS TO INVENT: Multitasking, books, icons, lists etc

Apple held another stunning press event earlier today, in which Steve Jobs decided to pretend he invented the following technical features:

- Multitasking

- Setting pictures as wallpaper

- Listening to music while going on the internet

- The literature of children’s author A. A. Milne

- Internet advertising

- Online gaming

- Putting files into folders

Here’s a photo which would be very easy to hilariously edit to read “Fail” if you’re into that sort of thing:


Read the full and astonishing retro-invention claims over on Engadget’s live blog of the iPhone 4.0 OS unveiling. The bit where he enthuses about being able to change the background wallpaper is the best.

LG Mini GD880 and ‘The Henge’

LG is reviving the age-old technique of ‘Hengeing’ to show off the angular lines of its forthcoming LG Mini GD880 smartphone, a phone so STURDY and ANGULAR it can easily be stacked into neat henge-like structures.

Behold, Plastichenge:

SanDisk’s 32GB microSD card and LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY!

Oh yes, we love it when the ladies pop them out so we can have a good look.

sandisk 32gb sd card

We’re not so keen on it when the ladies wedge them back in the wrong way round and it gets jammed in the slot, though. So it’s best to follow the official manufacturer advice and only let the man be in charge of the memory cards.

iPad available for order at “unbelievable price”

You don’t say. Nice to know that Apple is also claiming it can do magic.

Americans can pay anything from $500 to $830 for one of the things, with 3G models available later in the month. We thought there was going to be UK prices on the UK Apple Store when we started doing this update. That would’ve been slightly more interesting.

A 4389 x 829 image of a TV from above

You’re not going to see this anywhere else on the internet today, so we can confidently tag this up as a WORLD EXCLUSIVE.

We were secretly/desperately hoping there’d be a face of some sorts, as hinted at by those deep and inviting screw holes, but no. This update doesn’t even work on that flimsy level.
