Oblique Storage

The Perfect Office #48

There aren’t many different types of furniture but normally square or round- shapes. To break this boring rule, Oblique Storage Design begins to start. Oblique Storage has an asymmetric rectangle form and it has been designed to be specific rather than other figures. It can be displayed either vertical or horizontal way according to the user’s mind. And also, A single hook Which is on the side and at the bottom, is able to be put some stuff like a hanger. (at Design Spotter)

120-Disc Acrylic Storage Box

The Perfect Office #48

The innovative design of this media organizer holds a whopping 120 CDs or DVDs (without jewel cases) in a small amount of space. The stackable box features channels that suspend colorful hanging sleeves that protect discs from scratches. (at Holy Cool)

USB Lineup

The Perfect Office #48

A stark reminder of the Infinite USB Connector, the Tandem USB is different because of two reasons. One, it’s got a form that is more accommodating for the follow-up wire than Jiang’s version and two; it compares the lineup to male-female “coupling”! We get the naughty point, but in all honesty, going by the discussion in the earlier post, issues like unplugging a device in the middle of the ports and power current are still not resolved. However, bending wires over for a snug fit, is taken care of. (at Yanko Design)

Apple Magic Trackpad

The Perfect Office #48

For any of you out there who, like us, have sat down at a desktop Mac after using our MacBooks only to become irritated with the clumsiness of the desktop mouse, Apple has heard your cries. The Apple Magic Trackpad ($70) is a desktop-bound version of the Multi-Touch trackpads found on the company's MacBook Pro, but 80 percent larger, giving you even more room to pinch, rotate, and four-finger scroll your way to computing bliss.

Apple Battery Charger

The Perfect Office #48

"Apple tells us the charger has the lowest vampire power draw of any charger on the market -- the idea is for users to keep two batteries in each of their peripherals and two in the charger, so they can quickly swap out as the cells run out. Interestingly, the batteries are some of the only Apple products in recent memory that don't have an Apple logo on them -- they're just plain silver with "Rechargeable" printed on them. The charger itself has slightly nicer charging contacts than the usual spring-and-flap arrangement, and it features the same removable flippy-prong AC plug as Apple's laptop and iPad power adapters, so you can theoretically swap it for a longer power cord if you like."

Samsung BX2350 and BX2335 1080p monitors

The Perfect Office #48

"We've always been fairly fond of Samsung's Touch of Color design scheme, so we're glad to see it's still firmly in place on the company's new "eco-friendly" LED displays. The outfit's debuting its 50 and 30 series panels today, with the BX2350 and BX2335 both offering a 2ms response time, 1080p resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and a rather unique new feature called Magic Return. Put simply, this allows users working with two monitors to have their desktop automatically moved to a powered-on screen if one screen happens to shut down" (at Engadget)

HP crams Fermi-based Quadro 5000M GPU inside 17-inch EliteBook

The Perfect Office #48

NVIDIA's new pro graphics solution for mobile creatives, the Quadro 5000M, was unsheathed only yesterday but HP appears to have been first in line to get some of that new 40nm goodness. Electronista reports that the world leader in PC shipments is readying a 5000M solution for its 8740w EliteBook, which will bring 320 CUDA cores and a jumbo 2GB of dedicated memory to the party. That comes replete with the latest DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1 compatibility, naturally, as well as a bunch of pro-friendly computational enhancements. (at Engadget)
