Wireless Router is also a Vase

I suppose there isn’t a lot of originality in creating new gadgets these days, as some of the newest gadgets are a combination of other gadgets. Today’s interesting gadget combination is a wireless router with something completely non-technical, a flowerpot.

Some of you might be thinking that this device is not really very interesting. After all, you could just buy a wireless router and not risk the water damage that could happen when you spill it, for example.

However, I think we are getting to the point where every home has a wireless router. So why not make one that practical as well as practical. Okay, that wasn’t well said, but I think you see what I mean. You might as well make something technological fit in the home as if it belongs there.

Wal-Mart employee trampled to death on Black Friday

This next article is not about a gadget per se, but more about people’s greedy tendency to rush for cheap gadgets. I’m sure all of you are aware of the unofficial holiday of Black Friday. This is the day after Thanksgiving, where Americans discover that they are not as thankful as the previous day and must crowd retail outlets in order to get “doorbuster” items at rock-bottom prices. This is so they can give them away as gifts, of course.

Unfortunately, this tradition has gone too far. I have recently learned that a Wal-Mart worker was trampled to death as several shoppers burst through the doors. The scene of this crime is in Valley Stream on Long Island, where four other people were injured, including a pregnant woman.

Text message to lock down your Laptop

Like many of you, I own a laptop that means a lot to me. Since I am a writer, I make my living by it. However, even those that don’t live by the laptop still have a lot of personal information on it.

Especially in the age where no one really wants to use passwords, and they come up automatically as soon as you go to your favorite site, which is usually bookmarked! Yes, getting your laptop stolen is an open door to identity theft.

Fortunately, new Lenovo ThinkPads have a little security system built in. Once the user has discovered that his or her laptop is stolen, he or she can enter a text message that will lock down the laptop.

How does this work? You use a special text message that only the laptop can hear. No, seriously, it is an ordinary text message that works with the broadband connection. So when the thief goes on line to try and steal your account information, he or she will be in total lockdown, baby!
