I spy a beautiful mermaid - Digital Hero brings her home

I cannot be anymore excited after seeing this Digital Hero from GoPro. This waterproof (down to 30 feet) digital camera straps onto your wrist (flat or standing up) and is capable of taking still shots and movie clips. The product site has sample digital snaps and action videos above and under water (hello pretty mermaid). The camera is encased in a shockproof polycarbonate casing, operates on a single AAA battery and weighs under 3oz. It has only 32mb on-board memory allowing 260 to 360 photos or 32 10 second movie clips. The max resolution seems to be 640x480 for stills and 320x240 for video clips. You wouldn't want to shoot professional photos with this little gizmo under-water but for the casual user its perfect for those coral reef shots. Content is transfered over USB and is PC & Mac compatible. Only US$79.95. Now if this cam could accept external memory cards. Aswesome none-the-less.

Burn Weeds Burn !

OK I admit, I hate weeds! I am their worst enemy. I just cannot stand the sight of their ugly heads propping up amongst the cracks of my driveway or lawn. This Weed Burner is not for faint of hearts and not for the lawn unless you want the set the whole place on fire. For those pesky weeds in the cracks of your driveway, this is the most effective and instant terminator. Screw on a propane tank, use the regulator to control the flow of gas and light the fire at the tip, then burn away. It can also be used in winter time to quickly burn away dangerous patches of ice. US$34.95.
