This little guy here is called the Linutop 2. It is so small that even my hard drive is bigger. Gone are the days when only the obese can say “I sat on my computer and broke it.” Cometh are the days when schoolchildren can say “My dog ate my homework, which was in my computer.”

What we have here, is not an ultra fast super computer that can run NASA and MI5 at the same time. In fact, it only has a 500Mhz Processor, 512MB RAM and it comes with a load of open-source applications like the Ubuntu OS and Open Office on a minuscule 1GB of memory!

It is, however, the world’s most energy-efficient computer. It uses just as much energy as a lettuce. Hooking it up to the Sony OLED might be pretty hot. Told you things were getting smaller. Or flatter.

It’s only a matter of time before someone comes up with another MacBook Air spoof for these little fellas, like these ones here, and here.

Ok ladies (and some gentlemen), if you cycle, and you have about four thousand bucks that you have absolutely no idea what to do with, you can post it to me will to love this:

You can now buy a Gucci bicycle – Guccicycle. Only information available at time of writing is that it’s going to be in “China Red” (just say red) and and it’s going to carry a red GG saddle bag on each side.

Now you can ride with style.

It won’t be long before Vuitton and the rest come up with something similar just to prey on those newly-rich Chinese wallets. They’re going to exploit everything from furniture to car upholstery (that is – if they haven’t done it already).

I would hate to see Tiffany & Co. do a bicycle. Though I’d love to see someone try to ride a 24k white gold TiffaCycle.

If you think that’s hot you’ll also want to check these out:

Thanks, joe for the Guccicycle image

I recently posted an entry about things getting thinner to the point they were barely visible. Now that the Macbook Air is out, people with limited handbag – and manbag – space are clambering to get their hands on the overpriced and underspecified but ohmygoditssosexygimmegimme MacBook Air, here’s one reason why you should not buy it: the MacBook Helium.

Update:

The MacBook air has received the multi-touch, which I really like but OhGizmo thinks as disappointing for its price. But whatever new treatment it gets, it still won’t beat my MacBook Helium! ;)
