alaTest’s Top Five Must-Have Products
There are a handful of products out there that you just can’t live without. There are others that make you say, “Wow,” marveling at the inventiveness. Here’s a list of some of our favorite must-have products.
iCADE – iPad Arcade DockIf you love playing all of the classic games of yesteryear on your fancy new iPad (or iPad 2), you’re going to love the iCADE. It’s a simple docking unit that literally turns your iPad into a miniature arcade cabinet, complete with the classic joystick and button controls!
Who says Betamax is dead? Sure, VHS may have sealed its fate years ago, but some of us still have hours upon hours of video footage on our old Betamax tapes. What better way to jump into the modern era than to convert from one dead format to another? HD-DVD’s baby! It’s the wave of the future; forget all that nonsense about Blu-Ray. I hate that color.
Ever wonder what your pet cat/dog/iguana/alligator was trying to tell you when it’s running about making those odd noises? With Google Translate for Animals, all you need is an Android device and you’ve got everything you need to have a meaningful conversation with just about any animal you bump into, assuming it feels like chatting. Keep in mind that not all animals are great conversationalists.
Everyone knows the iPad is just a slightly larger version of an iPhone 4 (with a slightly faster CPU and no phone capabilities), and the Pad-Dock takes advantage of this. Simply dock your iPhone inside of the back compartment and you’ve got a full-fledged iPad to play with, albeit a little bulkier and not quite as pretty.
Chain locks are a fine way to keep people out of your house, but they don’t do that great of a job of keeping people in. The Labyrinth Security Lock adds a bit of complexity to the basic chain lock, ensuring that imprisoned guests have at least several additional seconds fiddling with your lock in order to escape. This of course gives you plenty of time to grab the chloroform before they get away.
You might be thinking to yourself, “These products all seem a little suspicious, what’s the catch?” Ok, you got us, April Fools! Be sure to pay it forward and have a great one.
