You caught my trying to organize my gadgets. Normally, they sit over on a stand on the other side of my office. The problem is, I’m a neat freak. I don’t like to have them just sit around. So what’s a Geek to do? Go out and buy yourself a Gear Gripper, that’s what.

Chances are pretty good that, if you’re visiting this website, you’re either a geek, or love one enough to buy a geek gifts. Without a doubt, said geek has a substantial collection of tiny gadgets that need a home to call their own. Take a tour of ThinkGeek World Domination Headquarters, and you’ll see almost everybody’s desks are cluttered with the detritus of an unhealthy addiction to gadgets.

Most of our gadgets are shiny, and polished with only a little wear showing. As long as we keep them from banging into each other, they’ll remain relatively pristine. What we’ve found is the GearGripper desktop organization ribbon. Soft yet firm, GearGripper undulates across your desk in a wave, the nadir of each wave perfect for comfortably resting your toys.

Because it’s bendy, it can be shaped into different forms – whatever you need to give your gear a comfortable home. Mold it to your needs, make it your own! Just remember to submit pictures of your creations for our action shots!

It looks so much nicer than just having things sitting around. Am I the only one who wants to have my gadgets organized, and keep everything looking clean? I love having this sitting on my desk, keeping everything nice and neat. I’m pressed for space, and this makes things easy.

Do You Like Taking Road Trips?

At the time of this recording, I was visiting back home in Iowa at my brother’s house. We’re planning a road trip to Wisconsin to see a concert he had bought tickets for. It sounds like good music, and a lot of fun. Do you enjoy road trips? What should you bring with you on a road trip? Scott sent an email in to give us some tips on things you should bring along.

  • Power Inverter This plugs into your cigarette lighter in your vehicle, so you can then plug in regular power cords. You would be able to plug in your laptop, or any other device. Watch a DVD while traveling (NOT if you’re driving!).
  • Music Use an iPod or other MP3 player going over the stero in your vehicle. Who wants to carry a huge stack of CDs with them?
  • Radar Detector This can help you remember to keep your foot out of it, and save on costly speeding tickets. Legalities vary from state to state, so be careful about using something like this.
  • GPS Navigation These can be a lifesaver when you’re heading off somewhere new.
  • Check your car carefully Check your car’s tires, oil, transmission fluid and any other simple maintenance items that could cause problems when on the road.

So what do you recommend when going on a road trip? Send me your thoughts via a comment on this post, or send me an email to [email protected]
