With Apple shares taking a bit of a hit at the moment, what could be more appropriate than having someone create the iPoo toilet, and this is exactly what designer Milos Paripovic has done.
John Wardle Architects have taken an old shearers quarters and shed in wilds of North Bruny Island, Australia and turned it into a beautiful example of modern rustic architecture. The structure was kept relatively simple, keeping with the almost utilitarian shape of a shearing shed, but the interiors were kept warm with the use of timber.
Have you played the app Fruit Ninjas? If you have then you will be delighted to know that now you can get your favourite karate chopping fruit in plush toy form. From watermelons to pineapples and even a bomb, the fruit all come with sweetly earnest expressions and a black headband, so they don’t get confused with just ordinary fruit.
Fruit Ninjas the app is available for both IOS and Android devices and the Fruit Ninjas toys are available for purchase through Amazon.com
I’ve been trying to get my household to let me make doughnuts, but have had no luck so far. I always get the “it’s too oily” talk, but they haven’t seen these. These billowy apple doughnuts from Helene at Tartelette look like miniature poofy morsels of joy to me.

This gorgeous little app was created for children to teach them children’s songs like London Bridge and Old McDonald had a farm. Amazingly illustrated by award winning Oscar nominated artist Heidi Wittlinger.
The Little Fox App is availble for Apple iPhones and iPads from Apple iStore

In the lead up to Christmas, I have found a great stocking filler, a way for that family member with the iPad, the iPod or the iPhone to charge and sync their device with their computer without yards of cabling getting in the way. It’s portable, light (it only weighs one ounce) and measures just 6.5 x 0.5 x 4.5 inches (16.5 x 1.27 x 11.43cm), and at only $7.48 you can get a KeyJuice for everybody.
This extremely portable charger for your iPad has been nominated by the 2011 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards honoree, is small enough to clip to your key chain but big enough to charge and sync your mobile Apple device.
The Hacoa iPhone Base Station is just another example of Japanese innovation and appreciation to detail. The exquisitely made iPhone BaseStation is constructed from your choice of either maple or walnut wood and can be further personalised by having the recipient’s name engraved onto the stand. The Base Station fits both the iPhone4 and the iPhone4S and is a great way to view videos on your iPhone at home. Hacoa designed the BaseStation so the iPhone is displayed as aesthetically pleasingly as possible, and I think they have the right idea.
OK, I’m going to go out on a limb here and ask if you remember the song “Jump Start My Heart” by Natalie Cole, hit of hers from 1987, well she speaks about a guy that jump starts her heart when she feels down. That’s what this juice pack does, except it does it for your phone. We are always moaning about how long our phone batteries last, no matter how long they last. Whether it’s a day (HTC, I’m looking at you) to a week (Nokia = win), it’s just never long enough! So the Mophie has a portable juice pack reserve that gives your phone a boost when it’s about to die and you are nowhere near a power outlet or your charger. Unfortunately the Mophie recharges only Apple products like the iPod or iPhone.
