Must Haves For September

Every month on geeksugar I offer my picks for the top five Must Have gadgets, gizmos and techie treats you need to get through the month. For some of you, September is back to school month, which probably means you are loading up on practical gadgets and supplies. For the rest of us, September is a great time to start anew and treat ourselves to fun office supplies.

Why did I pick these items?

  • The Queen Mino Bot USB will allow you all the function of a USB flash drive, in a beautiful, royal package. It's perfect for any student or office worker, who would rather save to a flash drive than e-mail his or her self every document for safe keeping or transfer. I like the Mino Bot series because they are created by different artists and really stand out. The line ranges in price from $39.95 to $109.95, depending on storage capacity.
  • Project Runway's Chloe Dao has created an amazing line of inexpensive and funky laptop bags for Pacific Designs. After writing about them a few weeks ago, I ordered one for my sister and was delighted to find that despite the inexpensive price tag (they are about $30), the bags are durable, chic and cute. Check out Dao's versatile cases for iPhones, iPods, popular phones (like RAZRs) and portable DVD cases as well.
  • Seattle-based jewelry designer Sally Brock has created a great, geek-inspired Fancy line, which features amazing Binary Bands encrusted with gems. They offer a fun and colorful kick to the normally anesthetic-looking binary bands and can be customized as wedding bands or more simple fun pieces. They cost $200 and up.
  • The Tetran is a small, colorful cable winder for your iPod or MP3 player's earbud headphones that reminds me of a bathtub toy combined with PacMan character. You can wind your cable around Tetran's body and use its mouth as a holder for your earbuds. It will keep your purse organized and inspired comments from everyone who sees it. Tetran costs $12.95.
  • Samsung has released two new MP3 players, YP-P2 and YP-T10, which each boast built-in Bluetooth 2.0 capability and can offer wireless listening whether connecting to Bluetooth 2.0 headphones or speakers. I was intrigued by the design, which is decidedly un-iPod and definitely something all you PC users might want to check out. Out this month. Pricing still unknown.

My favorite is still the QMB USB. Those are so cute. Maybe a bit impractical, but very cute.

I really like the binary band. My chubby little prego fingers are ready to bust my wedding ring off and I'm looking for an inexpensive band to wear temporarily. They only do price on request on that one so I doubt it's affordable for my temporary needs :-(

FYI I found the Tetran at amazon for 7.99. The Tetran's home site seems to be experiencing technical difficulties. But thought I'd share. Thanks for the list geek - this is awesome.
