I think these little USB rechargeable batteries are going to be huge. They are NiMH cells, rechargeable at any USB port. You don’t need a cradle and cable. Just charge and go. Not only are they easy to use, but they are nicer for the environment, by preventing the disposal of lots of regular batteries. I don’t remember all the chemistry of batteries in landfills (those grad-school brain cells have been taken over by new bits of information, like the names of all four Wiggles), but batteries in landfills are bad!
In addition to AA cells, they will be available in AAA, 9 volt, and sizes for cell phones and PDAs. Visit usbcell.com for more information.
I’ve been working on a new project this week! This one is called best.geekgadgets.ever.com. It’s a page dedicated to geek toys, gadgets, gifts, and other things that I think are super cool. Some of the products I’ve listed so far are a USB lava lamp, a wi-fi detector t-shirt, and some very cute Darth Vader nesting dolls. I love this stuff! If you’re interested, stop by and have a look. And if you think of something I should include, please let me know. If it appeals to my inner geek, I’ll add it and give you a nod. 🙂
As you know, I just got a tiny new iPod Shuffle for my birthday, and I love it! I want to hug it and squeeze it, and I will call it George. uh… So I was browsing for iPod stuff, like a little protective case, to keep it from getting scratched up. Well, I was not prepared for the amazing selection of iPod accessories Out There! One of my favorites is this cute little Yoda case for the old Shuffle design. Yoda! Since I’m addicted to Squidoo these days, I made a whole page on all the iPod stuff I found, in case you’re curious.
One of my hobbies is putting silly slogans on shirts and stuff. Before I had kids and replaced my hard-earned college knowledge with the lyrics for all the Wiggles songs, I was a scientist. And even if I can’t remember Avogadro’s number anymore (it has nothing to do with guacamole – I remember that much), I still get a giggle out of math and science related jokes. Here is one especially for fall – it is “pi” season, after all! And I love pie!
