When we first saw this sofa, we couldn’t really decide what to put in all those pockets, snacks? Remote Controls? Tea Cup Poodles? But then it dawned on us… what if it held all of our office supplies? The pockets are large enough to hold file folders, books, supplies, even your laptop. They’d be the perfect place to holster small electronics, cords, adapters, battery chargers — you name it. As long as your cat doesn’t use it for a scratching post, we’re not against the idea in a small space. We like the idea of at-hand storage and it would be much easier to stash away all your gaming controls and not have to put them in a box, on the other side of the room, just to make them look pretty.

Cheers! ;) aTable Let’s face it, wires are not the best thing in the world. Even if you think you’ve got them all nice and manageable, they somehow always find a way to get untangled, and make a mess of themselves. Eventually, the area behind your desk or TV becomes a war zone, and the thought of you ever having to go in there frightens you more than you even know. Sure, there are wireless solutions out there, and we can’t wait for them to get wildly popular so we can stop worrying about this stuff, but for now, maybe a table is all you need. That’s right. A table. (at SlashGear) Fight Club Soap Get yourself clean Tyler Durden-style with Fight Club Soap ($25/2-pack).

The iBUYPOWER Battalion Touch CZ-11 range packs Intel Core i7 processors, ATI Radeon HD 5650 graphics and a 15.6-inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 display, the latter of which is multitouch-capable.

As well as a 500GB hard-drive and optional Blu ray, there’s 4GB of RAM and WiFi b/g/n, together with a DVD burner as standard. OS is Windows 7 Home Premium.

No more battery recharging, never again having to plug your iPhone, iPod, Flip or whatever into an AC jack. A new technology being developed by RCA, initially as an emergency power supply, may promise just that — by sucking power from Wi-Fi signals and constantly recharging the device's battery. You read that right. RCA has discovered a way to absorb power from increasingly ubiquitous Wi-Fi signals. This may prove to be the answer to all portable power issues, forever.(at Dvice)

The device shows usage information, and also displays the cost of energy during the day, allowing you to run appliances whenever the cost of electricity is lower. (at Gizmodo) PogoPlug Hard Drive Pogoplug, the gadget that puts a hard drive's content's online just got a new feature: sharing of media with Xbox 360 and PS3 across the local network or cloud. Cloud access requires another Pogoplug to be local acting as an intermediary between remote drives and the console. The latest update also adds offsite backup functionality to remote pogos. (at Gizmodo) PADandCLICK Gel Pads It's not a new idea to stick little gel pads onto mice and keyboards to cope with the strain of browsing the Internet all day long, but the PADandCLICK system for mice caught our eye because it actually looks comfortable. Sure, it also looks a bit ugly and it won't work with some mice, but when you're spending upwards of eight hours clicking, then it's time to set those issues aside for the sake of comfort.

It's also the first mobile 15.6-inch mobile workstation to come with an optional 64GB SSD MiniCard (starting at $220) for more storage and better battery life. Speaking of which: the M4500 is listed as getting 7 hours and 40 minutes, which is a pretty impressive claim for such a hardcore machine. Its target audience is distinctly professional: oil and gas, federal, medical, that sort of thing. On the plus side, that means Dell's packed the M4500 with government-level fingerprint security. On the down side? This thing's going to cost when it's finally available in the next few weeks. (at Gizmodo) Fun pick of the day A solar charger or solar powered device is all fine and good if you live in an area where there is ample sunlight. If you live in an area with heavy tree or cloud cover most of the year, a solar charger might not be ideal. A better option in some cases is a wind generator. Eolic is a foldable wind power generator that harnesses the breeze to make power for your gadgets. The cool part about the Eolic is its foldable and very portable design. The entire wind generator folds into a carry case that you can take camping or to the beach for power.(at Slash Gear)

Cheers! ;) Sanyo' SPL Eneloop There comes a time in every bicyclist's life when you come to realize "I really don't want to pedal up that hill." For those riding a Sanyo Eneloop, they don't have to. The series of bikes has been getting more advanced over the years, and the new SPL models are the smartest yet. Whereas previous editions could only regeneratively charge themselves on downhills or when the brakes were applied, this new series can juice up while the rider is pedaling along on the flats. This presumably increases the rolling resistance somewhat but the new "Eco Charge Mode" is said to boost range by 53 percent. More importantly, a new chrome basket shows that this ride means business. It won't come cheap, though, shipping to Japanese pedalers on April 21 for ¥157,290, or about $1,800. For that kind of money we'll stick with our fleet of Huffy 10-speeds. (at Engadget) Abarth Chair A cantilever chair design inspired by car brand Abarth (the auto-sport division of Fiat). The work is suggestive of automobile design in both its aerodynamic form and choice of materials, polycarbonate and die-cast aluminum.

Well thought out construction makes it easy to assemble for everybody. It will fit every type of environment as you choose either white or mirrored surface.

The webcam is 0.3-megapixels, and a built-in mic is included along with three USB ports, one LAN and two audio jacks. A MMC/SD card reader polishes it off, with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. (via Gizmodo) Microsoft BlueTrack Mice The three models—the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Wireless Mouse 2000 and Comfort Mouse 4500—all have the same BlueTrack tech, but differ in size and transceivers. The Mobile Mouse 3500 has a nano-transceiver and rubber grips on the side for extra support when surfing, whereas the 2000 model is larger, with a snap-in transceiver. As the name suggests, the Comfort Mouse 4500 is probably the most cushioned of the lot, but actually has one (if you ask me) hindrance—a wire. It's the first BlueTrack mouse with a wire though, so obviously they agree with me. (via Gizmodo)

(via 7Gadgets.com) Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710 Both the keyboard and mouse of the Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710 purportedly get a ridiculously hearty three years of battery life. Between that and its concave keyboard: that's some weird voodoo, Logitech. Like the MK700, the keyboard is designed to "cradle" your fingertips, which sounds like it would make my hands fall asleep. It's paired with a sculpted mouse with "hyper-fast" scrolling, and of course the wireless goodness spares you the trouble of all of those extra USB cords lying around. Most impressive, though, is that three year battery life, which is positively Methuselahn in wireless keyboard terms.
