Featured this week:
Two sImple mobile phones, a set of Moleskine daily planners in a box, 10 handy Photoshop tips and a DIY iPad stylus created from a dry erase marker.

Minimal Mobile Phones

Overwhelmed by your overly-complex smartphone? Why not switch to a minimal phone like the $95 Joe's Phone that does one thing well - making calls. I love the integrated paper phone book and pen. The just5 is another interesting minimal phone for $90, with a few more features like SMS and FM radio.

Moleskine 2011 Daily Planner Box Set

Here's an interesting approach to a calendar system: 12 single Moleskine Volant books (one per month) are packed up in a nicely boxed $40 set. Each monthly book is easy to pocket and by the time the edges are dog-eared, grab next month's new planner and go.

10 Random Photoshop CS5 Tips & Techniques

I've been working quite a bit in Photoshop the last few months and am starting to appreciate all the things it can do. Adobe evangelist Terry White provides 10 great Photoshop CS5 tips in this quick and informative screencast.

Home-Brew iPad Marker Stylus

Here's a cool step-by-step, do-it-yourself approach for converting a standard dry-erase marker into an iPad stylus. Awesome! Thanks to Kris Hunt for the link.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.
