    Grab yourself a USB drinks cooler

    Well, it can actually warm or chill your drinks. There are all sorts of bizarre USB powered accessories available nowadays, ranging from heated slippers to miniature vacuum cleaners you can to keep your computer desk spotless – and now you can get your hands on this handy gadget. Anyone who often spends long periods of time gaming or working at a computer might be pleased to hear that you can now heat or cool your drinks as necessary - in ten minutes your beverage can either be 29 degrees warmer or 13 degrees cooler. Gone are the days of cold tea and warm Cola at your PC, all for just $24.

    The fact that it can warm or chill your drink is new. IIRC they could only chill them before. The thing is I've read a review on this and it doesn't work very well with cans because they only have a small ring that actually makes contact with the plate. It works better if you pour your drink into a cup with a flat bottom. Makes sense. I've always thought about getting one but as of now I haven't had problems finding a lot more useful things to spend my money on.
