Omniture Handheld Race Car

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

One of the coolest pieces of swag came from my friends Darrell Long and John Carcutt who attended a conference while I was stuck at home packing to relocate (which I did in the beginning of September). So I was happy to see that they saved a cool hand-held race car for me from Omniture:

The idea of this little toy is that the base of the race car includes the buttons to move the car forward and backward. For now, it’s a good base for displaying the car.

Thanks guys!

(Update: After about a week charging the thing, it doesn’t work!!!!! So hey, where’s a new one?) 😉

Enquisite Foam Dog

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I recently attended SMX East in NYC and saw one booth that actually looked like one of those little tourist kiosks with the display of … dogs. Enquisite, an internet marketing firm with superior search analytics, offered this little dog — paired with a wire “walker” — to anyone who would have guts to pick one up. 😉

I didn’t just take one — I wore it for the rest of the day — people thought I had an antenna sticking out of my backpack!

Cute, huh? 🙂
