Gadgettes 125: The you're dead to me episode

You better clean up your act, random gadgets and services! That's right! We're talking to you. You can't escape our scorn, because you JUST...DON'T...GET IT! Don't think we won't continue to use you, though. Cold turkey was never our strong suit.

Hello Molly, Kelly and Jason,

It is Rocco the Web Developer. To answer your question, yes, I came up with that super nerdy pick-up line all on my lonesome. I also made something for Gadgettes! After listening to Episode 123, for the next several hours all I could think about were baby hands. The “Baby Hand Battle Cry” alone had me laughing out loud like an idiot on the bus.
Luckily only the driver was there to look at me like I was insane.
Throughout the rest of the day all I could here was Kelly’s voice echoing in my head asking “Where did you go Mr. Baby Hands?”

Long story short you guys now have Mr. Baby Hands to go along with Jack My Thingie. I'm currently waiting for the forwarding to kick in and then in a few hours pudgyandsmooth.com should link to Mr. Baby Hands as well.

Needless to say, you guys totally made my day awesome. Thanks!

Enjoy,
Rocco The Web Developer

Dear Gadgettes,
Is it alright to be a dude and listen to the show? It says on the webpage title is “Gadgettes: reviews and news of tech gadgets for women and girls”. So if it’s not weird to be a man and listen the show, can you please change the title of the web page so I don’t feel awkward?

Regards,
Elliot


Hi.
There should be a Swarovski segment!!
I'm guessing you might have already thought of this, but it seems so part and parcel of Gadgetteering to encrust!!
Or perhaps even a generalized 'bling' segment (do ppl even still say bling?) would be more encompassing?

Either way, I'd like a picture of Brian Tong's pretty scarf for proof, proof (#1) that it exists, and proof (#2) that he'd actually wear something like that... lol

He's so pretty.
haha.

SO, 'in these troubled times' it seems like many people are determined to remain in denial. I present a few of their best efforts here:
(PS: most of these are from bornrich.org 'cuz, 1- It's an awesome site for such frivolities, 2- I am lazy and just searched my google reader)

Swarovski:
Espresso Machine
Bose Headphones
Toilet (ouch!)
Bathtub
Faucet
Top 5 Swarovski Disasters (that's you guys!)
Netbook
Scrabbl
Brittish Xbox (bling my thingie?)
Mini Cooper
Segway
Christmas

Added Bonus: you get to use the word "festooned"!!!

Gold:

Vibrator (@the bottom)
Heart Catheter
Toilet (with matching bidet!)
Rolls Royce
HiFi Speakers

Diamonds:
MUG!
Skiis
Hot tub
Vibrator (make your friend with the gold vibrator look like trailer trash!)
Credit Card
Stove
Hoodie and jeans for douche bags
Subaru (a logical marriage...)
iPhone (also comes in touch, shuffle and and classic!)

So WHY do we torture ourselves, ogling things we could never afford (or perhaps scoffing at the douche-baggery of it all)?
Because our brain is stimulated more by all things luxurious!
(Now pair this article with either vibrators and you've got yourself one mind-blowing stimulating experience!)

Enjoy!
