Freakin' Friday! Rechargeable Canless Air

Although canned air is a luxury for those who eat while they surf, wouldn't it be wonderful if you could get one that never runs out? You practically can with the rechargeable Hurricane 2 Canless Air System. You get over 500 full charges, the equivalent of about 20 cans of air per charge. That's 10,000 uses! Because it has a wind speed of 150 mph, so there will be some noise but the device can be used at any angle so that seems a fair compromise.

Signal Flare will flag your phone's location on their site when your battery is about to sputter out. Available for both Android and iPhones, you can signal your lost device with an actual noise to help you find it. The app is free and they have a Premium one that you can demo as a 2-week freebie.

Need Cash? EcoATM

ecoatm2.jpg

Although they have been around for over a year, there seems to be a plethora of EcoATMs cropping up for those seeking extra holiday cash. The good news - you get cash on the spot even if your cellphone or MP3 payer is broken. The bad news - you need to supply an ID and electronic thumbprint to ensure you are not fencing off something that somehow doesn't belong to you. The eco-minded will be glad to know that they will actually resell your ancient electronics to other vendors or disembowel for recycling.
