It’s the ultimate toy for the ultimate Apple fanboy, as they can have now their dearly departed godhead immortalised forever – yes, it’s the Steve Jobs action figure.

Twelve inches in height and dressed in the trademark black turtleneck and jeans, it’ll be available for a mere $99.99 from next month – although there’s a chance that the Jobs family might be reaching for their lawyers before the thing is actually made available to the public.

Which UK-based giant of business would YOU like to see made into a doll? Lord Sir Alan Sugar? Sir Richard Branson? Sir Philip Green? Dame Hilary Devey?

Obama Deals Of The Day – Year Zero + 2

51rizx1mzrl aa280 pibundle 1topright00 aa280 sh20 Obama Deals Of The Day   Year Zero + 2Mark April 1st 2009 in your diaries people. Sure, it’s the day when pranksters reign supreme (and did you know that 18,000 pranksters are murdered worldwide on that single day each year?*)

But this April 1st will be all about something else. The launch of the Chia Obama, a handmade decorative planter shaped in the shaped of the new saviour of Planet Earth.

If you can’t wait until April to satiate your cravings for Obamaphenalia (it’s a word – we checked), you could get yourself this Japanese Obama doll that comes with a range of erm, accessories. For the full thrill, you’ll need to visit the photo gallery at the manufacturer’s website –honestly, we can’t urge that strongly enough.

Any suggestions for other Obama-related products gratefully received. We know you’re an imaginative bunch so get to it.

(*April Fool! They’re always harder to spot when you do them on a day that isn’t April 1st aren’t they?)
