    Old-school USB vacuum is tiny, really works

    Please observe a fully-working, tiny USB-powered retro vacuum cleaner. It looks cool! Hope you live in the UK, though, as this £7.99 ($13) bit of fun costs a whopping £33.00 ($55) to ship to the US. If you simply must have the best in tiny USB-powered vacuum cleaners, though, you won’t let a $55 shipping charge stand in your way. Read More

    Convergence gone awry with the vacuum mouse

    What’s worse; That this mouse is also a vacuum cleaner or that the tagline is “Who said cleaning can’t be mouseverlous”? If you’re still reading this, the mouse itself is an 800dpi USB human interface device that also sweeps up crumbs. It costs about $30.

And now neat freaks (like me) have new reasons to celebrate. The company is introducing a… Read More

Unfortunately, they didn’t seem to understand that the movie was a comedy, a joke and send-up on NASCAR culture. About 20 minutes into the film, the family walked out, presumably demanding… Read More
