No, they something that stands out, something that puts them above the rest of us with our standard edition iPads and iPhones (if we're lucky).

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost upon us and once again, the occasion is not without the usual stress of trying to think of which Christmas presents to buy. Sure you can buy the usual underwear and socks for men and bathroom soap gift set for women, but what of the children? Every year, numerous toy shops tend to promote the latest must-have Christmas toys on the market and this year is no different. If you believe in the hype, the best toy to buy right now is the Doggie Doo game. The rule is simple; the first person to scoop 3 dog poops wins. How tasteful!
Even though most people were expecting an iPhone 5 at the last Apple conference, there was never any doubt that the latest Apple phone would sell in huge numbers despite the initial announcement of the new iPhone 4S. In fact, it has become the fastest selling phone of all time. During the opening weekend (after launching on Friday 14th October 2011), over 4 million iPhone 4S handsets have been sold across seven territories including the UK, US, Canada and Japan. The new iPhone has a few new features, but one of the standouts is Siri, the impressive speech recognition software.
"This is a guest post from Neil Forrest, a blogger who gave us his opinions about the daily deal markets. He follows the market closely and loves a bargain, no matter how weird and wonderful!"
According to www.dictionary.com, when used as a noun ‘deal’ means ‘a bargain or arrangement for mutual advantage’. But what actually defines a good deal? Obviously both sides have to benefit if the above definition is to be maintained, but most would agree a good deal is when you get a discount on something you place value on.
It’s not uncommon to see couples going shopping together, but you also regularly see the women go off shopping alone while the men drift around, disappear or wait outside like lost puppies. To solve this problem, an IKEA store in Sydney has set up ‘Manland’: a women and kids-free playpen for men which contains Xbox 360 consoles, flat-screen TVs with only sports, free hot dogs, pinball machine and a foosball table. It sounds like heaven for most men.
There are many restaurants out there that are guilty of throwing away food, but some restaurants are taking a stand against this. Some have resorted to fining their customers extra for leaving food on their plate, giving discounts or even kicking the diners out. Some may think that they are being too extreme, others have praised their actions. One thing is for sure, they are concerned about the level of food wastage on this planet.
If you are in the market of an air horn, then look no further than this horn designed by…some brand. The air horn is available to purchase from Amazon for just £1m, that’s right, a mere million quid. Now not only do you get this somewhat decent horn, you will also get FREE delivery with the product too! If you think it’s not worth it, then you should read the positive 4/5 stars reviews from dozens of customers. Even one customer stated that you could “smell the price put into the packaging”. Well at that price, the packaging better be good.
Beer connoisseurs might be delighted to hear that there is a body-shaping underwear which can help to sculpt your beer belly, tone up your behind and smooth away your love handles (apparently). The George Bodysculpt trunks are nicknamed ‘Manx’ after the female underwear brand ‘Spanx’ and supermarket chain ASDA and its George clothing brand has started to stock the underwear at their stores for men who are looking for a quick-fix solution to shape up their appearance.
So you’ve got your iPhone 4, still shiny and beautiful, and you want to keep it that way. The best thing to do is to get a case that will protect it from scratches and blemishes. Introducing the new Softband iPhone 4 case from Japan: the hand case designed to…well we’re not really sure. It doesn’t really protect the iPhone that much as it’s more of a decorative piece, albeit a slightly creepy one. It's hard to explain but you need to hold a hand in order to hold the phone or make a phone call. Confused? So are we.
If you are a meat eater, you probably don't expect any of your food to move about on your dinner plate. This however, is not the case for the chef at the Ikkatei Tabiji in Hakkaido, Japan who has prepared “odori-don” which literally means “dancing squid rice bowl. The squid is not alive, so how come it's moving? It is freshly prepared by the chef and the salt in the soy sauce re-activate its nerves in the cell membrane, making it look like it’s “dancing”. If you are intrigued by this dish, it will cost you around £15.30 per person.
That’s right! The world’s first breastfeeding doll ‘The Breast Milk Baby’ is out and it has caused an outrage in the US. Gone are the days where the simply dolls and the cabbage patch kids were enough to entertain young girls. It seems that the toy industry has decided to move on with that phase and become more innovative. We’ve got dolls that can cry, crawl, pee, poo, giggling and talking. Now, it’s time to breast feed!
We’ve seen it all before; we go on a flight and expect it to go plain sailing but when it doesn’t work out, you may qualify for a voucher from the airliners as a form of an apology. But it can happen to everybody and that includes the Royal family.
Following their North American tour, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, were given £200 vouchers by the British Airways for future flights. When you are on a long journey, most people rely on the in-flight entertainment to keep themselves busy. Unfortunately for the Royal couple, they were left twiddling their thumbs following the technical fault which prevented the entertainment system from working.
There’s nothing worse than ‘date panic’. Not to be confused with ‘what should I wear panic’ or ‘fear of rejection panic’ or ‘what if I run out of things to say panic’, ‘date panic’ is where you’ve been left with the task of working out where you’ll go and what you’ll do, but you’re completely stumped for ideas. Your date needs to be charming and memorable, without erring on the awkward ‘drain your wine to fill the time’ side. And then there’s the cost issue. Blowing your budget is painful, but so is being remembered as That Scrooge.
It is impossible to ignore the latest news with regards to the popular newspaper, News of the World. The phone hacking scandal which the newspaper has been involved in has stunned everybody and it became such a serious scandal that News of the World has decided to stop publishing their newspaper. So on Sunday 10th July 2011, edition number 8674 was their last EVER newspaper edition. But if you have missed your chance to purchase this historic edition, you can purchase one on eBay for just £10m. That’s right, ten million pounds PLUS £1.99 for delivery.
This is a question which scientist and philosophers have asked and researched for centuries. What actually goes on in the mind of a man and how does it work? Finally, after many years, we finally have the answer and it is available in book form. A book called (would you believe) ‘What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex’ has the answer, which is nothing. Absolutely nothing. To be more precise, the book consists of 200 pages which are completely blank. Some might say that it's fairly accurate.
We can’t resist the opportunity to save money. And when booking for holidays, we constantly look for ways to save money; be it fly with a budget airline, find a cheaper hotel, book the self-catering options, etc. One way of saving money is to fly out during the off-peak periods, though it’s not the most feasible option for those who have children. But according to the Daily Mail and official figures, “the lure of savings hundreds of pounds by travelling out of the school holiday season are fuelling record truancy rates”.
eBay tend to have some weird and wonderful products for sale and we will bring you some of the best ones, starting from today: a football turf. Most football fans are aware that Manchester United has secured their championship at Blackburn Rover’s Ewood Park stadium. In fact, it was a penalty from United’s Wayne Rooney who secured the trophy from the penalty spot.
