Insect Vacuum – It sucks big time…literally

Insect Vacuum – It sucks big time…literally

I always thought bugs and insect zapper was a crazy idea, and as of today that opinion of mine is off the table. Introducing the “insect vacuum”, a small gun-like mini vacuum that sucks up insects. The catch is you have to be within the range of its sucking power, which is around one to two inches.

Palm Foleo gets delayed – does anyone really care?

I hope you weren't too excited to get your hands on the new Palm Foleo. I would actually be quite surprised to find that anyone is all that excited about it to be honest. Anyway, if you were hoping to get yourself one, you're going to have to wait for at least another month, maybe more.

Ever since Tesla released their all-electric roadster their have been companies gearing up to give them some competition. It appears a company from the UK finally has a production model ready to compete.

Intech TEMPO – Backup for your trash bin

Right now its just a concept, which looks amazing, and the suggested feature list is equally amazing. However if I had to guess, if anything like this were to ever actually be produced, it would probably have to lose one or two of the really cool features just to make it affordable.
