Cool New Toys

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 7:52 pm

buy cheap neurontin online Now that I’ve started a new job I decided it was a good time to splurge and buy some of the geeky toys that I’ve been wanting or needing lately.

First off, I wanted a wireless keyboard and mouse. When I saw the good deal on the Microsoft fingerprint reader desktop I couldn’t resist. The keyboard isn’t wireless like the mouse, but it does have a fingerprint reader built in. It’s pretty neat. Instead of remembering passwords, I just scan my finger.

Just like everything Microsoft it didn’t support firefox, however I did manage to find a neat little extension called fingerfox that made it work nicely. (if you can handle a little bit of French)

Since I was updating my computer, I noticed a Belkin 900VA UPS system on Stootsi and it was decently priced – so I picked one up. I’ve lost 2 computers lifetime to power surges/brownouts. Most recently I lost my 2 weeks out of warranty Dell when the power line behind my house went down. It was time to get a backup.

Then, I spoiled myself. I headed over to woot and noticed they had one of those USB Rocket Launchers for almost half price. I figured why the heck not – it’ll surely annoy the interns at my office. (that guy in the video isn’t me. It’s just the first youtube result that showed the thing I bought)

It came in the mail today and my cat is not too happy with me at the moment 🙂

If I get time I’ll post a couple of reviews or videos of some other things. I’ve been meaning to write up the Mazda iPod adapter (and mention how they could improve it) but I just haven’t found the time to take the photographs… maybe sometime this weekend.

  1. Do you really want to get the microsoft reader, I heared really bad rumors and actually some people said that some reasearch people have been able to hack into Microsoft fingerprint reader. But microsoft reader never admitted that their reader is for security just for convenience to log into Windows or other software. But I have my own personal fingerprint reader, its from iM2SYS , not as cute as microsoft’s one but it’s heavy duty does not break easily and has a very secured fingerprint software, I have been using it for 2 years and supported me well and the best part it works on both firefox and internet explorer.
