The StealthSwitch

The StealthSwitch
You know that feeling; you can just tell someone is coming to peek at what you’re doing. Now, what if you’re doing something you’re not supposed to be doing at work. At that precise moment, you’ve got to race to close all those suspect windows before that someone arrives.

Those worries will be gone forever, just give your handy StealthSwitch a tap.

The StealthSwitch comes with very stealthy software which gives you the ability to hide the current window, hide all windows, hide all windows except specified ones, mute the volume, hide the taskbar, hide the desktop icons, and even password protect the restore functionality. Hidden windows won’t end up in the task bar, it’ll seem as if they never existed in the first place. As soon as it’s safe to do whatever sneaky things you were doing before, another tap of the StealthSwitch will bring everything back up to the way it was.

No one would ever suspect the StealthSwitch’s capabilities. Simply stow it under your desk or behind your monitor and nobody will be the wiser. The unit connects to your computer through a USB port which means no batteries are required. StealthSwitcher’s stealthy software works on pretty much every version of Windows (98 – XP), however there’s no Mac support. But who really uses Mac in the workplace?

The StealthSwitch is a mere $25 from ThinkGeek. That $25 will probably end up saving you a lot when you hear those footsteps coming. ;)

Thanks to karenlyn in the forums for suggesting this gadget.
