I could really use the keyboard vacuum. I saw a coffee warmer on thinkgeek.com, but now all I can find is the beverage cooler. <a href="http://www.thinkgeek.com/interests/usb/7f5a/" target="_blank">http://www.thinkgeek.com/interests/usb/7f5a/</a>

I had never seen a beverage chiller/cooler of any kind before. $30 seems a bit pricey to me.<br><br><br><br>
I assume you know that you can find non-USB coffee warmers that plug directly into an electric socket for around $15 in many department stores.<br><br><br><br>
This one is available on-line but not in stores:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-6/qid=1162069902/ref=sr_1_6/601-3392447-6713759?ie=UTF8&asin=B000CO89T8" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B000CO89T8</a><br><br><br><br>
A USB coffee warmer is available here:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.vat19.com/dvds/usb-cafe-pad.cfm?adid=GOOGusbpad&gclid=CMaJvtnYnIgCFRhuYAode3rFWw" target="_blank">http://www.vat19.com/dvds/usb-cafe-p...FRhuYAode3rFWw</a>

I've thought about getting one of the non-usb ones as a cheap bikini wax warmer. Right now I heat it on the stove, then put a beverage insulator around it, but it doesn't stay the right temp too long.<br><br><br><br>
Hopefully, Joe, you don't know much about bikini wax warmers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Gee, it must be pretty cold if you not only need gloves but <span style="text-decoration:underline;">heated</span> gloves to type at your 'puter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

Frankly, I know nothing about them. I've never had occasion to discuss such things with anyone in real life.

Being the incredibly (*ahem*) serious, practical person that I am, also want the Go, Hamster, Go!, Mini-Aquarium and Disco Ball from Joe's original link.<br><br>
Sadly, I only have 4 USB ports, and currently use 2 of them full-time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
Guess I'll have to consider getting another machine so I can have them all.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"></span>

Just get a USB hub, or several, particularly ones with their own power supply. You can multiply the number of hubs quite expansively. You can easily get four 4-for-1 hubs and thus have 16 USB ports to plug into. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I think I need the heated slippers and gloves. It's always FREEZING at my work.<br><br><br><br>
and yes, I've actually worn gloves to work. It's really hard to stick your hands in your pockets to warm up your fingers when you're supposed to be typing.
