Coolest Gadgets readers, there may not be a reason to post another article on this site. You see, I have discovered the coolest gadget ever.

This “groundbreaking” televised broadcast of the University of Florida Gators vs. the University of Oklahoma Sooners took place at the Theatre of Arts in the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.

HP’s new line of attractive ergonomic mice

by Ally

When I hear about a mouse that actually features color, I usually cringe a little.  In my mind I’m picturing the usual pink all decked out with rhinestones.  It seems like no one wants to take the time to offer a mouse that features an attractive design for those that want a mouse in a color besides the boring black or the overly girly pink.  There have been a couple …

I’ve just seen an interesting demonstration by Greg Taylor, the inventor of the KVAR energy saving unit AKA KEC. The KEC unit is claimed to reduce your electricity bill by up to 25%. It works by magic optimizing the wattage and voltage curves making the delivered electricity more efficient.
