We can’t decide who is less believable as a spokesperson: Claire Danes or Brooke Shields? One can’t quote Shakespeare to save her life (literally) and the other showed us what her momma gave her before the showing was worth the show.

It feels odd to say this but this Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Palette has a delightfully refreshing neutral tone we can really appreciate. In a sea of fuchsia, neon green and canary yellows, this river of burnt tans, smoldering browns and deep greens has us screaming “yes” and begging for more.

iPhone and iPod friendly ladybug from VestaLife

Vestalife will launch the Ladybug iPod / iPhone Speaker Dock at CES International in Las Vegas in January 2008 (it won the CES Innovation Design and Engineering Award you know). This amplified speaker system sports stereo speakers, a subwoofer, LED volume level indicators, a USB port for synchronization and a remote control – I guess I don’t have to mention that it looks like a ladybug, do I?

A few weeks back, Borders opened up pre-ordering for the Kobo e-reader, a simple, $150 tablet that will be attached to its upcoming e-bookstore. We didn’t realize at the time, but the bookseller has no plans of stopping there. In fact, Borders will launch a series of up to 10 e-reading devices across the price spectrum in its retail locations. All the devices will make use of Borders e-bookstore and will be showcased in retail stores in an area called “Area-e.”

Next up on that list is the Libre, an even cheaper e-reading option manufactured by Aluratek. It will retail for $120, feature a 5-inch LCD black-and-white display and double as digital music player. It will also come with 100 preloaded classics. Borders is currently taking orders for the Libre, which will hit the market in July.

Personally, I like what Borders is doing here. When you boil it down, e-readers really just replace paperback books that you could buy for 5 to 10 bucks or borrow for free at your local library. In other words, the cheaper they can make a basic e-reader, the better. That and the fact that these devices are tied to a well-known name in books should make them an intriguing option for consumers, even if they don’t become a rousing success story.

Mmmm.. Fixed device against white background..

Granted, showing your device fixed up close with hands and fingers walking you through the features, all against a bright white background might just be the most logical way to show what your device got, but Bell’s new ad for Palm Pre does feel a bit inspired by Apple’s iPod / iPhone ads, doesn’t it? Just a tiny bit? Anyway, the device and interface still looks good.

Tired of having to lean your clammy, dripping body beyond the curtain when trying to use your iPad during a morning shower? Aren’t we all. Aren’t we all. Well, now you can bring your iPad right into the shower with you. What Apple Fanboy won’t love that?

Japanese accessory manufacturer Tunewear has introduced Waterwear, a plastic iPad case that will enable you to bring the iPad anywhere that water threatens your circuits. It allows you to touch and swipe right through its transparent face, making the iPad experience as natural as ever. Showing that our example of iPad showering was on the minds of its designers, Waterwear even includes a shower hanger for draping the tablet over the shower head while you soap your face.

Trying to stay under a $600 PC budget but can’t wait for the affordable ultrathins or ultrapowerful netbooks? Woot’s got a way out with a $549 Dell 17-inch Studio notebook. Built for entertainment, the refurbished Dell Studio 1737 includes a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 320 GB hard drive, a DVD player and burner, a webcam and Vista Home Premium installed. There’s also an HDMI output and a 1-year warranty if you’re a worry wart. I know, PCs don’t make the greatest impulse buys, but normally a 17-inch Studio with these specs will set you back $759, so consider pulling the trigger if you were already shopping.
