LG watch-phone to cost £1,000!?
Gosh, that’s rather a lot. Mobile Today reckons that the LG watch phone that we covered here will be exclusive to Orange and cost a massive £1,000. Wow. The mere thought inspired Nate Lanxon from CNET to create the wonderous venn diagram over the the right there.
The G910 watch-phone was announced at MWC last week, and LG showed it off at CES too. Considering its appalling specs, requirement that you constantly wear a headset, and – now – massive price tag, it’s clear that Orange see this as a novelty for rich people, not a real device.

Geek Chic: a t-shirt, bag or mug with a mosiac of your Twitter friends
My Twitter followers are important to me. No, really, you all are. But I’m not convinced that they’re important enough for me to want to wear them on my chest all day. Still, you might be closer to them than I am, so for £20 you can stick them on on T-Shirt and look down every ten minutes at your lovely disciples.
Also available are mugs (for £11), bags (currently out of stock) and business cards (£5.50). Just think to yourself before you make your purchase – will you genuinely still be wearing that thing in six months’ time?

8-bit ties, bringing a new meaning to the term "professional gamer"
We’re lucky here at Shiny Media, we get to wear whatever we damn well please to work. Of course, the team from Brandish sit next to us, so we’re almost certainly getting judged, but it sure beats wearing a suit to work.
If you’re unfortunate enough to have to, though, then although you’ll have to shelve your Pac-Man and Left 4 Dead t-shirts, you can replace them with these gaming ties. Featuring Tetris, Pong, Space Invaders and Asteroids, they’re unashamedly 8-bit. They’re available on Amazon USA and cost $25 a pop.

Nike concept sunglasses give you the benefit of hindsight
Here’s some nifty concept sunglasses from Nike which curve your field of vision, so you can actually (sort-of) see behind you! Normal field of view is 180°, but this extends that 25° on each side, giving you an effective 230° vision range. Useful for seeing that taxi that’s about to knock you over. Nike say:
“To get technical, high power, diverging Fresnel zones aligned vertically distort into view an extra 25º of view on either side. In doing this, vision is radically distorted in the periphery, but as the eye detects only motion in that area, little clarity is lost in the process.”
Still, it remains just a concept. Sorry, but you won’t be getting your hands on these just yet.
