    USB Beverage Chiller
    The CoolIT USB Beverage Chiller is the only way to keep your drink cold while you’re at your computer. And it looks cool on any desktop!


    Just seconds after plugging the chiller into your computer’s USB port (no external outlet needed), the coldplate chills to 45 degrees Fahrenheit, the perfect temperature for keeping your beverage chilled.
    • Plugs into your computer’s USB port
    • Coldplate chills to 45°F
    • Keeps your beverage cold

    Cool Link

    I'm using it right now!

    Cool. But if you have to key in a password when you plug it into a public computer, what's to prevent a keystroke logger on that computer from grabbing your password???

    The SATA/IDE-USB Adapter gives you the flexibility of connecting almost any type of drive to your computer via USB.  SATA, 3.5†IDE, 5.25†IDE, and 2.5†IDE (Laptop) drives are all supported and can be easily hot-swapped to your system.  The included external power adapter will allow you to power your drives outside your system giving you the ability to quickly add or swap between drives without opening your case.  The SATA/IDE-USB adapter incorporate 3 interfaces to one USB adapters.

    Alright. I love Dr. Who and now must have a Tardis.
    But it make that sound when transferring files? Then again, I suppose that would get a bit annoying after a while.

    Sound effects are optional and are controled via an on/off switch.

    It doesn't matter if a public computer has a keystroke logger. So what if they have your password for your Ironkey . . . they won't have physical possession of your Ironkey when you leave, and your Ironkey is what provides the passwords for the individual web sites. [just tell me you aren't using the same passwords for your computer security AND web site logons. :eek: ]

    How does this protect me against keystroke-logging spyware?

    If you plug your IronKey into a computer that has keystroke logging software on it, or if your computer becomes infected with a keystroke logger, you will be protected because the IronKey Password Manager enters your passwords for you into your web pages, instead of you typing them in.

    https://learn.ironkey.com/faqs/1#disp

    Of course, you could always try to add another layer by using a Hardware Authenticator such as an RSA SecurID, which I already use . .

    . . . but, if anyone got ahold of the IronKey, they would probably have the Hardware Authenticator too . . . unless you were to place it a locked briefcase . . . handcuffed to your arm . . . with a bodyguard standing over your shoulder . . . :lol:

    In other words, nothing's foolproof. Looks like a good gadget, though, if you must use public computers.

    Reminds me of the time at Hybridfest when I was illustrating the SKS system. A guy suggested that if someone were to get ahold of my fob they could steal my Prius (and man was he proud that he had found the weakness in the system). I simply replied that if I got ahold of his keys I could just as easily steal his car. Security relies on a certain level of care given to the security mechanism.

    Oh. Oh. You want the ultimate coolest geeky USB devices. Try Solid Alliance. Unfortunately I don't read Japanese but I know a sushi USB stick when I see one.

    Solid Alliance

    They also have the rocket launcher, lava lamp and doomsday USB devices. And a really cool rhinestone mouse. But it's all in Japanese. I guess I'll just have to wait until Thinkgeek is back in stock.
