A More Comfortable Backpack

by Alison

Have you checked out the backpacks kids are carrying to school lately? The amount of stuff that high school kids have to tote around is ridiculous. And – in the case of my Freshman nephew – if the locker is not nearby the classrooms they are stuck schlepping all books with them.  Or how about college students? Maybe your dorm is across campus from where you need books. Backpacks have …

Air Mail Launcher

by Edwin

You know, sometimes working in an office with nothing but row after row of cubicles can get rather stifling. Back in the days where computers were not commonplace, and there was no such thing as a network (Intranet or Internet), sending one message to another person in the quickest way within the same office block would be through the phone’s extension line.

Aroma USB – Freshen Your Space and Your Mood

by Julie

One of my first jobs was working in a huge office in one of those little cubicles. It wouldn’t have been so bad if the guy that worked directly across from me didn’t bring the most horrific things into the workplace to have for lunch. I’m talking liver and onion leftovers, some sort of day old curry and a runny brown concoction that I never was able to identify. I …

Doctor Who TARDIS Trash Can

by Edwin

You know, if there is one way to get rid of all the trash in the world, we might as well be a Time Lord and travel to the future, where the folks there would have figured out how to vaporize trash the safe and clean way, or at least have some means to keep the earth green. Dump all our rubbish there and that’s that. Unfortunately, since time travel …
