When Nicholas Todd isn't studying at Colorado University Boulder, he blogs on The Project Universe. He recently redid his home office, building a deep, raised shelf for his laptop, monitor, and speakers, and shared some great pictures on the site.
If you're one of the people that purchased an iPad this weekend, congratulations. Hopefully you weren't one of the foolish looking folks that we saw on our local news &mdash you weren't portrayed in the best of ways! However, we're sure there are a thousand and one things you're dying to do with your iPad &mdash have you considered using it as a second monitor yet?
Um. Yes, please. This monitor's been around since October, but we just discovered it and had to share. The 23-inch LED backlit monitor is less than 2-inches thick -- perfect for squeezing a home office into a tight, unused closet, or small apartment. We love the acrylic neck as well as the touch controls that appear on the bezel frame at the touch of a finger, then fade away. Crunch Gear has a video review of the SyncMaster XL2370 after the jump.

Remember that series of adorable laptop sleeves made be a French duo? We thought, why not take their idea and make it a bit more utilitarian. We like the idea of accessorizing your computer, but it's also nice to have accessories that are both cute and functional.
Having our very own photo booth is something we've wanted ever since we saw Dave Navarro's vintage booth in a very old episode of Cribs. Home Hacks shows us that it doesn't take much money or muscle to build your very own, but here's how we would upgrade it.
Attention over-sharers: Just because you see a new funny page every ten seconds on the Web doesn't mean that we all need you to try and turn your monitor around to show us every eleven seconds. We know it's super easy to do now that you've got the i360, but that doesn't make it ok.
We're always envious that the European market for many products offers a wider selection of colours compared to the domestic market here. It's no surprise that the colour-loving Italian market would be targeted by LG with these slim Starburst-candy-meets-LCD-displays, the W30S series.
