Multimedia Diamond
The new HTC's Touch Diamond 2 smart phone has a large 3.2-inch diagonal screen with 480 x 800 WVGA resolution perfect for internet browsing and multimedia reproduction. HTC's Push Internet technology has fixed the problem of waiting forever for websites to come up on smart phones. Users can select their favorite websites for fast access later. The contents of the page are automatically refreshed and loaded into memory when the user is not using the internet. The Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Operating System makes it possible to use email while the Mobile Office Suite enables web browsing and editing popular office documents.

Ecological Wine Cooler
The energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly Vinotemp iCellar wine cooler uses a thermo-electric cooling system but no CFCs, HCFCs or anything else that might harm the ozone layer. The iCellar cooler can hold 12 bottles of wine, is quiet and does not cause the bottles to vibrate. The internal temperature of the cooler can be set to between 10 and 18 degrees Celsius, thanks to an easy-to-use backlit LED screen.

World's Smallest GPS Speed Camera Detector
The Inforad K1 is the latest generation of devices to utilize GPS technology and satellite connections. The K1 pinpoints police cameras and independently monitors the zone in which the vehicle is located by comparing it with a speed camera database. The detector gives out a warning using audio-video signals whenever the car approaches a "danger" zone. The K1 works by satellite beam, which means, in practical terms, that it will find all the cameras in the vicinity, even those the driver misses. The K1 detector does not require any batteries and its compact size makes it especially nifty.

Ultra-Resilient Portable Disk
The Iomega eGo Encrypt 320 GB portable hard disk can survive being dropped 2.1 meters thanks to Iomega's Drop Guard Xtreme protective feature. The rubber, shock-absorbent Power Grip band keeps the disk working, even the most trying conditions. The disk can carry up to 1,280,000 photos, over 5,920 hours of music and 480 hours of video. The disk comes equipped with a fast USB 2.0 interface that can transfer data at 480 MB/s and does not require any external power supply.

Hi-Tech Safety From Volvo
Volvo has just introduced its proprietary laser-based "City Safety" system into its XC60 SUV. The distance of the car from the vehicle in front, or any other obstacles, is continually monitored by a laser sensor at speeds of under 30 kph. Should the driver fail to react in time, the system stops the vehicle automatically. Other safety systems used include the existing Side Impact Protection System (SIPS), which uses side seat and curtain airbags to protect from side impact, Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) which protects the head from rear impact, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), which uses cameras mounted under the exterior mirrors to monitor blind spots, and Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC).
