Digital Abacacus Worthy of Count Chocula

Brando’s $10 Soft Solar Chocolate Calculator comes in three flavors, er, colors: dark, coffee, and strawberry. If you buy one for a Valentine, I suggest also throwing in the white chocolate keyboard. Previously: LG Announces Leaning Monolith of Chocolate HP … Continue reading

Button Spy Camera continues Brando’s commitment of novelty

Brando’s latest glowing, palm-sized keyboard
