Talking Lion Phone on The Good Wife found

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Tonight’s episode of the The Good Wife “Wrongful Termination” had a cute bit around one of the characters talking on a speakerphone featuring a small plush lion toy which moved it’s mouth as the character on the speakerphone talked. This had to be the absolutely funniest bit of the week but completely misplaced product-wise is it is very difficult to find the actual toy. But it has been found!

The toy is actually a small iPod toy which dances and moves it mouth to music. Also available but not featured are a bear, panda, and frog toys. Price is a bit steep for most, but for some it will be a must have.

New age of Hipstamatic

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010


My friend recently introduced me to an iPhone app called ‘Hipstamatic’. This is an app that mimics the old style cameras, with interchangeable lenses, and film borders. So far it’s been quite a bit of fun, and produces quaint photos. One of the only drawbacks of the operation of the app, is that the momentarily cute developing and printing modes cannot be disabled. And it also unfortunately doesn’t seem to fully understand the iPhone 4 flash mode and often gets hung up if needing to use it. Other than that, I’ve taken quite a few photos of random things and been happy with the aged look. This app is obviously not for everyone, but I’m sure it will tickle more than a few interests. Enjoy the snaps, and relish in the new age of Hipstamatic adventure …
