This footage is from Samsung's latest commercial to promote their LED technology for TVs. Armed with a hell of a lot of smart sheep, LEDS, and careful planning, they took to the hills of Wales to film.

This product isn't new on the gadget market, but with everyone switching to Bluetooth devices I figured it was worth mentioning.

When I showed my dad my ipod touch a few months back, he said "I would need to sharpen my fingers into points to type on that thing!" A folding Bluetooth keyboard is ideal for those with pudgy fingers or not from the generation of touch screens. It may not be the slickest looking electronic, but it is practical for those on the road typing long emails.

This one is the Freedom Universal Keyboard which was released in Oct. 06' and is compatible with over 200 devices that have Bluetooth connectivity (the ipod not being one of them). You can pick it up online from Mobile City for about $90.

Despite the awesome visuals, the 15 second ad may prove to be a touch optimistic since in a recent survey comparing the iPhone with the BlackBerry Storm Apple beat out RIM. I think we know which side of the fence this girl still stands on (Sorry, Earl).
