GfG’s Article Recap for Week Ending June 12, 2009

First up in the ‘what the … ?!’ category from the ever-inventive Japaneses were the  Fuwarinka Candy, which changes your body odor by eating a piece of candy or chewing a piece of gum.  Apple had their WWDC conference and rolled out new MacBooks and a new iPhone.

Internet traffic could reach 2/3 of a Zettabyte by 2013 and speaking of the Net, you better grab your Facebook username before it gets snapped up by someone else.

More gadgets: The Lacie d2 Network File Server can store tons of photos and videos on your home network. Amazon released its latest Kindle, the DX, while Microsoft is close to beta testings its new free anti-virus software.

Wrapping things up, we compared some wireless 802.11 USB adapters so you could retro-fit that old laptop or desktop cheapily and easily.

Fuwarinka Candy and Bath Products

Fuwarinka Rose Flavor Candy

Oh how the Japanese love their alternative medicines – here we have the Fuwarinka candy/bath selection which is a range of candy and bath products which each have their own unique benefits attached to their consumption. The one that really caught our eye was the one that makes you smell good from the inside out!

The different items and their properties:

  • Aroma Grapefruit Flavor Gum – prevents premature aging of the skin and makes you smell nice.
  • Rose Flavor (tastes like flowers perhaps?!) Gum – same effect as grapefruit.
  • Milky white rose fizzing tablets – place it in your bath to heal you from inside out.
  • Lotte Glamatic Grapefruit Flavor – might actually be just a normal gum!
  • Men’s Fragrance Gum – the fruity equivalent of a breath mint!

Final thoughts: seriously guys, April Fool’s is long gone; it’s too good to be true! A gum that makes you look younger whilst enjoying eating it? Puh-lease…
