CupRing — Maria Volokhova
"Sometimes it's so arduous during parties to hold your drink the entire evening. This cup can be attached to the magnet-enhanced silver ring, as it has a magnet at its bottom. The cup can be held in the hand or simply stay on the ring."
Link shortener v.gd is the new tiny.url/bit.ly
Objectively speaking, it should be.
Consider that www.bookofjoe.com shrinks to 17 characters (after the ://) with tiny.url, 13 with bit.ly, and just 11 with v.gd.

Experts' Expert: Robert Scoble's favorite gadget — "The new power is power."
The grand panjandrum of Scobleizer told Jennifer Preston, in a story published May 4, 2011 in the New York Times, that "My favorite gadget is a Monster extension cable with a three-prong plug [above and below]. That is always the best gadget to have in airports. If you find a plug invariably someone else is already using it. Now you can plug in yours. The new power is power."
Prince, call your office: your accessory has arrived.
