Stuff I Want But Don't Need

* Have to lead today’s list with the iphone. My lizard brain wants one. The rest of me has no idea why. I’m going to attempt to hold off until V2.
* Toolmonger ? Blog Archive ? Magnogrip Magnetic Wrist Band — wow this actually seems super useful.

* PuchiPuchi bubble wrap toy. Can you imagine having one of these on an airplane?
* Rich and Bob’s advice for lens cleaning tools.
* Phoneflasher. Not sure I can pull this off.
* Magnatag whiteboards. These appeal deeply to me tho I have no specific need. Maybe I can use one to manage my halloween efforts?

More stuff I don't need but want

* The Kwikset Smartscan. Ok I am not sure I really want this. What I’d really like is a lock that could be programmed to respond to my car’s fob. I have to carry the car thing around anyway, why can’t it open my house too? I don’t want my thumb to be the identifying device, I don’t want to encourage anyone to chop off my thumb.
* Crystal Weather Station. Looks cool. Why not available in US?
* Another doohickey to let you use your dremel — this time as a plunge router
* A Drobo storage robot. Sounds way cooler than “hard drive enclosure”
* Ceramic Jellyfish — awesome looking

* Clamp multimeter. nothing unique here, I just like these.
