USB LP-to-MP3 Converter

As technology improves and times change, the way we listen to our music rapidly transforms as well. My dad, along with many other men and women in their 50's, still like to reminisce about the "good old days" of music - a time of 8-tracks and LP's. And of course they could never get rid of those old vinyl records, because "those are classics, they just don't make music like that anymore." Unfortunately, they just don't make the equipment to allow you to listen to those golden oldies either.

If you're one of those people who just can't let go of your classic music or you know someone who has a box of records gathering dust in a closet, you will definitely want to tell them about the LP-to-MP3 Converter. You don't need to let go of your favorite music because the player is obsolete. This handy gadget will allow you to convert it to MP3 format to be played back on an iPod or other MP3 device.

Simply plug the LP-to-MP3 Converter into your computer using the USB. The belt-driven turntable plays LPs at 3313 and 45 rpm speeds, converts the music, and saves it to be stored later on an MP3 device. Featuring anti-skating control to increase stereo balancing your out-of-print music will sound its best with this handy gadget. The system also includes recording and cleaning software so you can remove unwanted scratches, hisses, and pops that appear in your music.

In a constantly changing world of technological advances, don't leave your favorite tunes behind, get your LP-to-MP3 Converter here...

Always Lit Indoor Holiday Lights

I don't know about you, but it greatly affects my holiday cheer when the lights on the tree start to flicker and then go out. It is impossible to tell which light is causing the problem, so I have to sit there and replace them one by one until I find the culprit. Taking each light out and replacing it with a new one takes a lot of time and effort – sometimes wasted effort, as I find the strand never does work again. Am I supposed to replace every single twinkle light with a new one? Well, I don't worry about that anymore! I have the Always Lit Indoor Lights.

This strand is unlike those other holiday light strands. Even when one or more lights fail, the lights will still be lit! You see, this strand of lights uses an integrated circuit. This integrated circuit can regulate the electricity even when bulbs fail. In a strand of 50 lights, ten or more would have to be malfunctioning before the entire string would stop glowing.

Another nice thing about this gadget is that its circuit stays cool. When some lights go out, the adjacent lights won't be prone to overheat. It has also been created to last up to 5,000 hours! You may not have to buy another strand of lights ever again.

The Always Lit Indoor Lights come in both multi-colored and clear. Get them in time for holidays here...

Mind Molester

For those of you who work in an office, sitting behind a desk all day or being stowed away in a cubicle can probably get a little mundane and monotonous. So liven up your office space and start a fun game of hide-and-seek with your co-workers with the Mind Molester. Depending on the people you work with, this creative little device will either be a fun practical joke or a way to get back at your most annoying colleagues. The Mind Molester is an electronic device that you simply connect to a 9-volt battery. Then hide it in an un-suspecting, hard to find location. Every three minutes the Mind Molester emits a one-second chirp that can be heard but not easily tracked. You'll drive your co-workers crazy because due the chirp's short duration, its frequency, and the distinguishing sound, they will spend hours trying to locate it. And once they do locate it, they'll have no idea what it is, which will frustrate them even more. Your friends and colleagues will become obsessed waiting to hear the next chirp and find its location as quickly as possible. Once they've found it, use your imagination and find another great hiding place.

Do you need to liven up your work day a little, have some fun with the Mind Molester. Get yours here...

KidSmart Vocal Smoke Alarm

Thank goodness – kids can sleep! Even when you drop a pan in the kitchen or run the vacuum in a distant room, they will normally stay dreaming. However, this wonderful sleeping pattern can be a detriment when you are dealing with a fire. You don't want them completely snoozing while your smoke alarm is screaming outside their door. That is where the Vocal Smoke Alarm can be a life-saver.

This gadget can protect the youngest of children, since the actual alarm is created specifically for them. There are three different alarms used in the attempt to get the attention of your child: Voice, Tone and Light! The audio message portion of the alarm can be recorded by you! This will help get your child up and going, since they will hear their name, said out loud, in a voice that is recognizable on the alarm recording.

Recording your personalized message on the alarm is easy! It is suggested you speak your child's name loudly and firmly to start and then switch to instructions about leaving the home when a fire is a reality. You'll have plenty of recording time to remind them to avoid hot doors and to cover their face in smoke-filled areas. What is really nice is this gadget has a fire alarm button, so you can actually practice before a real fire occurs.

With three separate alarms in one, the Vocal Smoke Alarm gives your child three separate chances to wake in the event of a fire. Three chances is much better than one!

The Vocal Smoke Alarm comes with a 5 year warranty and runs on common AA batteries. When you want to protect your family with the very best, give the Vocal Smoke Alarm a try. Find it here...
