USB Talking Parrot

Here is one of those gadgets that looks cool, but will soon become irritating; in other words the perfect stocking filler...

The USB Talking Parrot as the name suggests is a USB powered parrot that you do not need to feed or clean up after. Just like the real thing, the USB Talking Parrot repeats words and phrases that it hears on a regular basis. Not sure how many words and phrases it remembers and repeats, but for around $20, it’s not that expensive for a stocking filler.

Do you know someone that you would like to annoy? This could be the perfect gift.

Fiat 500 Abarth I Want One

Back in the 60’s Abarth turned ordinary small Fiats into tuned up ‘I want one of those cars’. Today and sadly only for those in Europe (I’m guessing); Abarth are tuning up the all new retro styled Fiat 500.

Due to be unveiled at the up coming Geneva Motor Show, The Fiat 500 Abarth will pack a turbocharged version of Fiat's 1.4-litre FIRE, with maximum horsepower at 5000RPM and a 0-62mph of around 8.2 seconds.

The Fiat 500 Abarth has been slightly modified with the nose pushed forward to accommodate the turbocharger and its two intercoolers. The intercoolers are fed by a deeper airdam with a wide central slit and two side elements.

No word on pricing, but I am sure it will be a hit and will definitely give the BMW Mini a run for its money.
