Nokia 6682 - my first Nokia phone. There are some UI quirks I’d like to see addressed, but overall I’m really thrilled with the phone. Great build quality, nice materials, nice weight, nice physical balance, nice look, and nice mix of phone-first PDA-second features.
Medium Shoes “Environmentalist” - authentic materials and superb build quality. Comfy, durable, nice look and feel. You can tell these guys care about design and craftsmanship. [Disclaimer: They are customers of ours]
Clip-n-Seal bag clips. The only downside is that they’re two pieces, but boy do they work.
The scroll ball (aka Nipple) on the Apple Mighty Mouse. The jury is still out on the overall mouse, but the tiny scroll ball is remarkably better than any other scroller I’ve ever used.
Nike Free 5.0 running shoe. Insanely comfortable and light. Best $85 I’ve spent on shoes in a long time.
Plan of Chicago. A beautiful book with beautiful ideas and hand drawn maps. This is vision.
Bach Rescue Remedy. Mad science, no science, purely placebo. I don’t care. It works for me.
Biotene Mouthwash. Most mouthwashes burn my mouth, this one does no such thing. No alcohol, no stinging, just minty freshness. This is one healthcare product that delivers on its promise.
Audi S4. Best car I’ve ever owned. I’m surprised every day by this car. I used to be an Audi hater, but now I can’t say enough good things about them. They know how to pay attention to the details like no other car maker today.
Rosendahl alarm clock. It’s a small clock with big numbers so you can actually see what time it is. And the entire clock is a button. Love it.
What are your favorites of the moment?
