Wacky Weekend Gadget Roundup

Boomshoe_320x240As we cover the Intertubes looking for news here at GottaBeMobile.com we come across all sorts of gadgets and geekery. When we find things that we think fit into our Mobile Tech/Tablet PC/UMPC focus we bring them to the pages of GBM straight away.

But we also find lots of cool, unusual, wacky, and sometimes questionable gadgets that we think just don’t fit, or that pop up in the middle of a busy news week. So, twice a month or so on weekends, we’ll be posting up some links to some of those wacky, wild, and occasionally wonderful gadgets that cross our paths. We’ll be pulling from all the familiar sources and also ones that aren’t so familiar. And we’d love to get gadget tips from you as well. So if you see something that might be a little off topic, drop us a line at [email protected] and it might make the cut. Hope you enjoy the fun. We do.
