USB Vacuum For Holiday Season

For most, the middle of November is when you start thinking about Christmas and the holiday season. With that in mind, if you have an office gift exchange, this USB vacuum could make your short list, if you draw the office IT person as your secret Santa.

What tipped my memory about seeing this USB vacuum several years ago, is a commercial during Sunday night football. Yup, someone actually worked this USB gadget into a prime time commercial. First image is from the commercial, second image is the link to get the USB vacuum from Amazon (or equivalent).

Before you get your hopes up the USB vacuum actually works, it doesn’t. The thing will make a vacuum noise, but doesn’t suck anything up.

Men’s Watch, USB Cigarette Lighter, Rechargeable

I love how the description for a “cigarette” lighter watch includes the words “environmentally friendly.”  So the ligher doesn’t use gas, I get it, but isn’t smoking the cigarette worse?

Anyway, if you smoke and like to keep time, this product is for you.

The watch tells time, but the three smaller dials are for esthetics only.

There is a $40 dollar version that is digital.  The watch type options are listed on the product page.

Snap Power USB Charger

You know a product is a great idea when a couple of pictures describe the entire product. With that in mind, we’ve all seen wall outlet USB charges, but the Snap Power, in my opinion, will rule them all. The design is clever. Installation is ultra-easy. Accessibility supersedes all others. Take a second and just look at it: In my mind there are three things which make this a brilliant wall charger. If you don’t mind me walking you through the obvious, here we go. Or skip the highlights and jump right over to their website: The design is brilliant. The User keeps both outlets available for normal use while a sleek looking USB port is added underneath.

USB Drive As Luggage Tag

Several years ago the concept of a 2GB luggage tag would be out of the questions.  A 2GB drive was about $15 and for that reason, most everyone would consider it too expensive.

Today however, with a 2GB flash drive less than $5.00 it makes plenty of sense to use a flash drive to store your contact information via USB.  Sure, you still write your name, address and phone number on the label above, but you can now include additional information.  Travel itinerary, medical information and 2nd contact information.

Now, if you want the luggage tag looking USB with label area, it will cost you the full price of $30, but I’d rather take an old USB or a new $5.00 and create my own.  Wouldn’t be that hard with some creative material like duct tape.
