ThinkPad Mr. Coffee Edition:

As part of growing our company, Lenovo is constantly looking for other well known brands that we can associate ourselves with to improve our own brand recognition. Today we announce another product designed to further that goal, the ThinkPad Mr. Coffee Edition.

By outfitting each worker with a ThinkPad Mr. Coffee Edition, they can remain at their desks, their productivity only limited by the size of their bladders.

When you buy this machine, we’re including a new Ultrabay device with individual hoppers for beans, cream, and sugar. Pressing Fn+F6 on your ThinkPad launches ThinkVantage Beverage Manager which allows you to customize your coffee the way you like it. Since most people have a “usual,” you can store your favorite “extra dark roast, no sugar, soy milk” as a profile in a drop down menu. (For administrators wanting centralized manageability, we have a plug-in for LANDesk and expect to get SMS and Altiris integration by the end of June.) You then simply place your cup underneath the system, and your perfect beverage emerges only minutes later.
Think Geek: Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt
With the bevy of reality TV shows and humdrum movies we quickly decided that what people do in real life is NOT significantly less exciting than what fictional characters on the screen experience… but for some reason, real life just SEEMS much more boring. However, after days of extensive highly-scientific double blind testing we were able to discover the difference… Background Music!

This amazing new wearable audio solution features a working speaker embedded into the front of the shirt. When you push the appropriate button on the pocketable remote you get music or sound effects appropriate for any situation.
And now check this out:
The Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt was originally an April Fool’s Prank… but due to overwhelming positive response and hundreds of e-mails screaming to „make the damn shirt already” we’re putting this item in to production ASAP.
YESSS!!!!! ME CAN HAZ SOUNDTRACK T-SHIRT!
