Joining Dell’s Hybrid today are the Studio Desktop (MT) and Slim (ST). Despite cool, black styling, the modest 350W and 250W PSUs make clear their mid-range intentions.

What do beryllium tweeters and electromagnetic woofers mean? A sky high price tag–but Grande Utopia EM speakers feature an adjustable design to get that elusive sweet spot.

T-Mobile’s G1 phone is the first with Google’s Android OS. It has single sign-on for Gmail, YouTube and more, Amazon’s DRM-free MP3s, and HSDPA + EDGE; the U.S. gets it on 10/22.
Apple’s iMac “puck” mouse never did it for us, but Grands of Dalvey’s opulent Bureau Mouse might do the trick with a chrome finish, 800 dpi resolution and fine leather mousepad.
These EyeClops Night Vision Goggles are a relatively low-cost pair that look like something out of The Matrix; caveats: you’re viewing through one eye with a narrow field of vision.
