Full disclosure: as much as people loved Tetris, I sucked at the game. Every time the blocks started falling from the sky, I’d survive for about two minutes before I got overwhelmed, and they hit the top and my game was over.
I always loved playing Atari’s vector-based arcade games back in the 1980s. Games like Tempest, BattleZone, and Quantum were some of my favorites. And then there was Star Wars. I loved shooting down TIE fighters, zapping radar towers, and zooming into the belly of the Death Star to take aim at its exhaust port in hopes of blowing the thing to smithereens.
Do your hands get cold while you type away at your computer keyboard? Mine do here in my drafty office with the snow falling outside my window. And while I could just type with gloves on, I think some USB-powered hand warmers might be better a better idea.
Are you a fan of Nintendo’s Kirby games? Well how would you like a fan of Kirby, then? Your wish is my command. Actually, I had nothing to do with it. This Kirby of the Stars desk fan is the brainchild of SK Japan.
The fan really does look like Kirby, with his mouth agape and ready to blow a cool breeze of air on you while you slave away at your desk.
Corgis are very cool dogs. They are super short, have big fluffy butts, and can run really fast. If you are a fan of the corgi and ever thought what you really need to keep warm in the office is a toasty corgi butt to sit on, here is your chance.
This is a Corgi Butt Heated Pillow that you can plug into your USB port to keep your back or butt warm.
Flash drives are a dime a dozen these days. In fact, I get so many of them handed to me at media events, that I could probably build a 10 terabyte array out of the ones I have stashed in my desk drawers.
We’re big fans of 2001: A Space Odyssey around here. There isn’t nearly enough 2001 merch available for fans, so when we see something nifty, we’ve gotta post it. This sweet Hal 9000 USB Drive helps to rectify that situation.
Kubrick’s dystopian masterpiece is one of the greatest sci-fi films ever and one of the most influential films in history.
If there’s one thing most of us can use more of these days, it’s USB ports. After all, just about every rechargeable device made ends up connecting to a USB-powered charger. Chances are, you’ve got one or two USB chargers plugged into your outlet and that’s all you’ve got room for.
Do you have lots of phones, tablets, and other rechargeable gadgets in the house or at the office? Here’s the solution to all of your charging problems.
Unitek’s 10-port charging station can juice up two handfuls of USB-powered devices at once – even tablets and larger smartphones.
Winter might just be a couple of months away, but the forecast here for tomorrow is 87 degrees and a gazillion percent humidity. With conditions like that, you need to keep cool. Sure, your office or home probably has an air conditioner, but sometimes a direct breeze is what you really need, especially on humid days.
Flash drives used to have some value, but these days, I’ve got boxes full of them – mostly handed to me by vendors presenting their products. To garner attention, companies have handed me USB drives that look like everything from a metal horse, to a twig, to a key fob from a $100,000 car.
Do you love BB-8? Then you’ll love this desk fan that looks just like the adorable little droid. He’s still got his wobbly little head, but his body has been replaced with an orange-bladed fan.
The rotund droid plugs into any spare USB port for power, and possibly to steal the plans for the Death Star if you’re keeping those on your laptop.
The only thing that I want from a Baby Groot USB Car Charger is dancing. Lots of dancing. Fortunately, this Groot delivers. Just bring him along in your car and he will dance around to your music all day long.
He can also charge two tablets simultaneously, thanks to two 2.1A
Razer has been making gaming keyboards as long as some PC gamers have been around. That’s because the standard keyboard that comes with most PCs doesn’t typically work well for the kind of precision and timing you need in gaming.
