Underwater Tunes
The Waterproofed iPod Shuffle Swim Kit includes the same iPod shuffle you'd normally use, but waterproofed by Waterfi. The 2GB shuffle is waterproofed to 210 feet below the surface. It has 2GB memory to hold songs, podcasts and audiobooks, and a promised 15 hours of battery life. The shuffle comes with waterproof short-cord headphones, also from Waterfi.
The kit retails for $155.

Umbrella
The umbrella is a neat gadget, but it relies on notoriously inaccurate weather forecast. Maybe it is the region where I live, but the forecast is wrong most of the time.

Spinchiller
I'm interested in how effective that spin chiller is. I've found the bes two methods of cooling drinks are to: A) place in freezer with a wet paper towel wrapped around it, or B) place in salty ice water and swirl around for a couple of minutes.

Either gets your drink cold in under 10 minutes.

Great list!
This was a really great list. I had no idea some of these products existed. I don't need any of them, but wouldn't mind owning a few! I thik I could do without the umbrella. I already have an app on my phone that delivers realtime rain alerts as push notifications.
