Contest Directions: It's back to school time for kids, but school books, accessories and gadgets got really complex this year. Albert Einstein once said "Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." I remember when I was at school, our school books and accessories were so simple they could actually be mistaken for Paris Hilton's brain. Nowadays, school books are more complex than Einstein's relativity theory, and except for one-two kids of rocket scientists in each class, no one understands anything. Things are so bad that many kids graduate from school without knowing how to write their name. True story*: I actually managed to be at Jessica Simpson's high-school graduation a few years ago, and when I asked her to write an autograph for me, she spelled her last name with the number 7 and a picture of the sun.
In this contest you are asked to photoshop / design complex, hi-tech, confusing, or simply useless school-related items (classroom furniture & equipment, school books and accessories, etc.)
* True story absolutely not true.

This contest is fueled by the following news: If you are still involved in your back to school shopping, you may want to consider this article. Presently, there are some new, hot gadgets that are on the market today that are intended to make school easier for the student and the student's parents. There is a store called Five Below. As the name of the store indicates, everything for sale at the store is on the shelves and available for five dollars or less. The fastest selling items at Five Below presently include a manual hand shredder and different iPod accessories, including speakers that sell for just five dollars. If you have some extra money to spend, you may want to purchase the Music Gremlin as well. The Music Gremlin allows you to connect to the Internet directly from the device -- bypassing the computer all together. With Music Gremlin you can now download the songs you love directly to your mp3 device. If you want a small mp3 player, consider the Samsung YP-U2 which can fit right into your pocket. It retails for under seventy dollars. If you are looking for the perfect laptop for a student, the tech experts at CNET recommend the Mac-book (on the lightweight end of the spectrum) and the Toshiba Qosimo (at the heavier end). The Toshiba product has a big screen and a DVD player and recorder. It is even a laptop that comes complete with a built in TV tuner. You might want to add a chill pad to keep the heat associated with a laptop down. These retail for between thirty and forty dollars. They cool off the internal workings of the laptop so that it does not overheat. You may also want to consider buying a laptop lock which retails from between about thirty dollars to about forty dollars. Finally, you might want to add a finger print security system to your laptop computer.
