Skinit Star Wars iPhone Case – $15

SKNSTRWRX22IPDT5G-PR-01Skinit vinyl skins allow you to personalize and protect your device with form-fitting skins. Switch out a new skin every couple of months and change up your style for much less than the cost of new cases. The adhesive backing can be applied and removed with no residue, no mess and no fuss.

Skinit skins are engineered specific to each device to take into account buttons, indicator lights, speakers, unique curvature and will not interfere with other accessories. Skinit skins feature a vivid photo-quality, high gloss, UV protective coating that looks amazing and will last a long time.

Vinyl skins are not a hard shell case product, silicon product or protective case, but vinyl skins do provide very good scratch protection.

The NewerTech NuGreen Flexible Neck LED Desk Lamp is the modern answer to desktop lighting needs.
Featuring 50 Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), NuGreen produces light similar to natural daylight, makes it perfect for dorm rooms, apartments, and bedrooms. Further preventing disturbing roommates or a spouse with light glare is the flexible “gooseneck” that lets you position the light beam precisely where you need it.
Using only 3.6 watts total power, the NuGreen saves both money and the environment. The LEDs last up to 45,000 use hours…up to 22 times longer than tradition bulbs…and can be recycled because they contain
no mercury. Besides its cool looking stylish aluminum design, NuGreen is cool to touch too. The LED lights don’t emit any heat and the lamp turns on with a gentle finger tip touch to the red ring power indicator.

Dyson Hot + Cool – $499

Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 12.25.43 PMWhen used as a cooling fan, Dyson AM05 fan heater has powerful airflow and high air velocity to cool you effectively. It uses Air Multiplier™ technology for long-range heat projection – it provides direct heat throughout the room. There are no visible heating elements or fast-spinning blades, and the unit switches off automatically if tipped over.

Heat distribution
Many conventional fan heaters can’t heat a whole room quickly because they use spinning blades powered by inefficient motors to distribute the air. AM05 has Air Multiplier™ technology that amplifies surrounding air for long-range heat projection. It is fastest to heat the whole room.

Some fan heaters claim to be cool air fans as well. But many have low airflow and low air velocity so they’re not effective. With Air Multiplier™ technology, AM05 draws in up to 6 gallons of air per second, generating high airflow and air velocity to cool you effectively. There are no blades – just an uninterrupted stream of smooth air.
