As spotted on Fab, the big trend for Spring is gold. Shiny, sophisticated, and sun-kissed, a little touch of gold makes even the most boring accessory — hello, HP USB drive ($20) — look regal. On the other end of the spectrum are products that are already blinging on their own like this VAIO laptop ($1,200) or Lumix Panasonic digital camera ($350); the gold sheen merely adds to the luster.

In the words of Austin Powers: It's goooooooold! There's something grandiose and whimsical about gilded and gold gadgets. They're a little bit disco, a little bit rock 'n' roll and a little bit luxurious. Whether you're into genuine 24-karat gold plated hard drives or cameras, or more simple gold colored gadget accessories, the color is cheery and celebratory. Check out some of my favorite golden gadgets in the widget below.
Black may be basic and the expected color of PCs and cell phones, but it can be just as sleek and chic as white and silver. It hides stains and scratches and projects an air of seriousness. I mean, there's a reason offices filled with accountants and lawyers use black laptops and desktops and not cherry red minis, right? To see some of my favorite black gadgets, which are anything but basic, check out the widget below.
Throwing down green for a white gadget means a commitment to not drop your phone, not spill spaghetti or a cocktail on your prized gadget, and well, treat it like a baby. That being said, snowy white gadgets are sleek, modern, and oh-so-hip. Just ask all the people who picked the white iPhone over black or original.

There's a silver lining to all lustrous and grayish gadgets outside of their technical function — they are sleek, sophisticated, and sexy. From the aluminum MacBook Pro and MacBook Air to the cheeky Clocky chrome to the practical but chic BlackBerry Curve, silver gadgets are professional, androgynous, and attractive. To see some of my favorite gleaming gizmos, check out the selection below.
Purple may be best known commercially as the color of Barney and Purple People Eater, but its history as the hue of nobility makes it a regal choice for gadgets and accessories. The mixture of red and blue makes for a feminine, but strong color that can suffer a little wear and tear and still look vibrant. Here are some of the most precious purple products on the planet.
Dreaming of peaceful skies and calming times while sitting at your desk looking at a Blue Screen of Death? Don't let the color blue get a bad rep! Relax your nerves by treating yourself to some tech or tech accessories in the cooling color of tranquility — from aqua, navy, ocean to baby blue. Here's a look at some of the most royal goodies on the market.
Kermit the frog may think it isn't easy being green, but it sure is easy to be green with gadget envy. You can never have enough, so choose wisely and purchase items you will treasure as long as they live. If you love all things green, grass-tinted gizmos are calming, unisex and a little retro (doesn't this Bermuda headset remind you of vintage cars?). The earthy hue is unusual for computers, but plentiful in the accessories world. Go ahead, get your green on.
Those on a magical mission to follow the yellow brick road will appreciate fine gadgets in the sunny hue. It's a lively, hopeful, and friendly color (think emoticons!), which is just what I want to feel when I look at my gizmos. While yellow is an uncommon color for big ticket gadgets, it makes for a fruity assortment of novelty gizmos and accessories. Here's a peek at some of the freshest yellow goodies on the market.
We're going to show you a whole rainbow of gadgets, gizmos and accessories this month to support creative back-to-school shopping so log on Monday to see what bright delights we showcase!
