BrowseBack stores a PDF of every web page visited and makes the pages accessible through an interface that allows the user to browse thumbnails of those pages. The free update is available for registered users.

TuneFlex Aux Features Auxiliary Line In

From PlayList

Griffin Technology has upgraded its TuneFlex — a flexible auto charging cradle for the iPod — with an auxiliary-in cable. The cable is designed to connect to new cars that feature an auxiliary in connection to accommodate iPods and other devices. It costs $49.99.

TuneFlex plugs into your car’s 12V accessory jack or cigarette lighter and mounts the iPod or iPod nano on the end of a flexible gooseneck stalk. A light at the base of the TuneFlex’s neck shows power status. A built-in 1/8th-inch stereo line-out audio jack connects the TuneFlex Aux directly to the car stereo’s auxiliary input.

Griffin Radio Shark 2 - Like a Radio DVR

From Gizmodo

Except for the fact that it looks like a shark fin, which has little to no relevance to the actual product. The Radio Shark 2 is an upgrade to Griffin's almost three-year-old Radio Shark 1. The Shark 2 plugs into a Mac or PC via USB and can then time-shift and record live AM or FM radio. This one is a bit better than the original because you have more customizable schedule recording features. It also is now compatible with iTunes and can handle Internet radio. The Radio Shark 2 is available for $50. (Psst...HD Radio users, a Radio Shark HD is on the way.)
