The creator of the Fast Finger Keyboard was tired of waiting at an auto repair shop while the mechanic hunt-and-pecked for each letter of the alphabet. Sure there was a better way, a USB-keyboard with keys organized alphabetically was born. Switch easily between A-B-C and the standard Q-W-E-R-T-Y modes, the creative problem solver also comes with common abbreviations and shortcut "hotkey" buttons along the top. Compatible with Mac or PC and a timesaver at $22 from http://www.fastfingerkeyboards.com/.
The Zoombak personal GPS locators will help you find anything… a pet, backpack – even the family car.

The tracking gadget starts at $150 and they're available at Best Buy, WalMart, Home Depot, PetSmart or online at http://www.zoomak.com -- this cost-effective peace-of-mind runs about $13/month.
