Whenever I am driving around in my car, I always have my phone plugged into my FM transmitter which also gives power to my phone so I can both charge my phone and listen to music off of my phone.  However, if you aren’t as old school as me and have a stereo system new enough that you don’t have to use an FM transmitter to listen to music off of your phone yet still want a geeky way to charge your phone or other USB powered devices, this R2-D2 USB car charger might just be for you!

The cool geeks over at ThinkGeek are selling this sweet R2-D2 USB car charger for just $39.99!  It should fit in your cup holders and has 2 USB ports which both put out 2.1 amps which is enough to charge two tablets at the same time and it plugs into your cigarette lighter.

Even if you aren’t willing to sacrifice one of your own cup holders for this, it would still make a great Christmas gift for that Star Wars fan in your life.

I really hate the idea of having to get rid of my Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess wallet because I really like it, but it is falling apart and the ink for the Twilight Princess logo is almost totally faded away.  So, I am in search of a new wallet and while looking around for a new wallet, I came across this cool Klingon wallet!

The awesome nerds over at SuperHeroStuff.com are selling this sweet Star Trek Klingon chain wallet for just $19.99!  The wallet is a tri-fold wallet which snaps shut and is made of a combination of polyurethane and polyester.

Whether you are looking for a wallet yourself or know somebody who likes Klingons and could use a wallet for Christmas, you might want to think about picking this one up!

I’m not sure if this is going to be the wallet I get but it is definitely on the short list since I love the Klingons and only have an interest in tri-fold wallets.  I probably won’t be buying a new one until after new years so if you know of a geeky wallet I should check out (I would think you guys know what sort of geeky tastes I have by now), please feel free to let me know in the comments below!

Ever since I could drive, I have always considered Black Friday my Christmas but this years is even better than normal!  Between my shopping online this morning, I saw the news that the new Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens teaser trailer is out so of course I stopped what I was doing, watched it and now I am posting it here before I go back to my shopping.

Let me know what you think of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser in the comments below and tell me what cool stuff you are picking up as part of the awesome Black Friday sales today!

One of my favorite things is to see bloopers from the shows I love.  Speaking of bloopers from one of the shows I love, to hype the release of season 7 of Star Trek: The Next Generation on blu-ray which comes out on December 2nd, this short but hilarious blooper clip has been released and I thought you guys would enjoy it as much as I do.

Given the corrupt, lying nature of our politicians and political system these days, not to mention how easily hackable the electronic voting machines have been proven to be, I really don’t put much stock in the election process these days.  I still vote but I view it as a largely meaningless exercise.  That said, when I look for somebody to vote for, I look for the candidate that seems to the the logical choice for the job and has the most logical ideas about how to improve things (I’m not one of those mindless drones that just votes for a single party although I generally lean Libertarian).  I suppose you could say that while I think my vote is pointless, I still aspire to Spock the vote!

Speaking of voting logically, the awesome folks over at SuperHeroStuff are have this cool Star Trek Spock the Vote t-shirt on sale for just $9 right now!  I’m not sure how long the sale will last so you might as well jump on this deal now, especially since it is election season anyway!

The #1 I hate about my bedroom is the lack of outlets for plugging stuff in.  Having only one outlet means I have a number of power strips daisy chained just to run all of my computers, game consoles, tv, and a ton of other gadgets and as much as I would like to have a mini fridge in my bedroom, I don’t want to push my luck and increase the risk of burning my house down any more than than I already have.  However, if I ever get another outlet put in or move somewhere that I have the ability to plug more stuff in, this Borg mini fridge is exactly what I will get!

The Star Trek loving nerds over at ThinkGeek are selling this amazing Borg Cube mini fridge for $149.99.  This Collective approved fridge can hold up to 9 pop cans with a little bit of room to spare and lights up green just like a real Borg Cube!  If you are a Star Trek fan who hates having to walk all the way to the kitchen to get something to drink while you are Netflixing on Star Trek: Voyager, this is the perfect mini fridge for you!  And one other interesting note, not only can this keep food cold but it can also keep it warm up to 149°F!

Now, if only somebody could invent a transporter to beam the pee out of you, you would never have to leave your bedroom ever again!
