If you are a fan of Christopher Guest, the creator of such movies as "Waiting for Guffman" and "Best in Show" then you had to appreciate the PSA he created that was shown during Sunday's Golden Globes. With his cast of regulars that includes Ed Begley Jr., Bob Balaban and Jennifer Coolige, this is the first of five total spots for the US Census Bureau.

ZOMM Seeks Lost Cell Phones

zomm.jpg

ZOMM will help you find your misplaced cell phone without having to call yourself. The wireless device attaches to your celly and will hum, chime and blink when you leave it. It also lets you know when you have incoming calls and doubles as a speakerphone, as well as an emergency button. A Best in Innovation winner at the CES 2010, it was devised by a mom who kept hearing how her friends and children kept losing their phones and decided to do something about it. Look for a summer debut.

CES 2010: MoSoNex Lets You Play Journalist

mosonex.jpg

The Best of Innovation winner in the social category at this week's CES 2010 is MoSoNex. Take a picture or video on your 3G smartphone, press "use" and it will be sent to anyone on your group list. So far so boring, but the picture/video appears on their TV via a set top box. The software is free and you are charged a monthly subscription fee, based on the service level. We so want this.

olpcxo-3.jpg

We haven't heard much lately from the folks at One Laptop Per Child, although a peek at their site shows that they are still being distributed. Yves Behar, of the fuseproject, has designed its third generation with an 8.5 x 11" flexible plastic touchscreen and wireless charging. Best of all, the tablet will supposedly have a $75.00 price tag. The newest OLPC is due out in 2012.

Kids Twitter With Twoddler

No self-respecting parent should push their little ones quite this far. The Twoddler was devised by a team in Belgium and allows young kidlets to Twitter. They use an adapted Fisher Price baby activity center that, when played with, can contact parents and other tots. Thank goodness this one is still at the prototype stage.

ecoATM - Saving The Planet One Cellie at a Time

ecoatm.jpg

We often show you the latest gadgets, but not what to do with the outdated ones. The ecoATM will take old cell phones, MP3 players and other portable devices, decide on a value and give you an in-store redemption, charitable donation or gift card. The recycling station was first tested in Nebraska and is being placed in San Diego at no charge to the stores. This sounds like a win-win deal to us.

AT&T Denied Injunction

We reported that AT&T was trying to get an injunction against Verizon for their "There's A Map for That" ad campaign. Judge Timothy Batten ruled yesterday that although they were "sneaky", they were not misleading. Another hearing has been scheduled in December and until then AT&T is fighting back with their "Truth About 3G" ad. While Verizon's ads are clever and amusing, AT&T is fighting back with Luke Wilson. Hmmm. Seriously? Are we the only ones that would rather they spend their bucks on better advertising?
