    LOL. That is one of the funniest things I've seen. It's not funny that it's a usb mug warmer but because of the specs given on the mug warmer.

    Notice that this mug warmer is supposedly powered by a usb cable. Now notice that power consumption is listed at 110-240 VAC. If you can get 110 VAC or 240 VAC out of your usb connection there is something seriously wrong with your computer. In fact, it no longer works as everything inside it is fried.... No usb bus could survive 110 let alone 240.

    I'm thinking of getting one for work as my 'personal desk item'. Whenever anyone makes me a coffee, I'm always called away, and the thing always ends up cold.

    For loads of gadgets and goodness though, I recommend you try www.thinkgeek.com

    Excellent, something else you can put in a PC to break it. Like Windows ME.
    I saw USB slippers recently.
    I'm working on a USB fondue set at the moment (patent pending, so keep it to yourselves). I'm just finishing a risk assessment on melted cheese and keyboards. I c%n tell y*u, it@s gettving a b^t messy h4ere.
