Apple Mouse projects a real mouse picture


Heh, this has to be one of the best discoveries out there. It turns out that if you have a Apple Mighty optical mouse, it can project a real mouse hologram on the desk. Try it. Update: We found it does the same on a Apple Wireless mouse as well, though this one looks like a "Mickey Mouse" from some angles.

PS: It seems the  Microsoft optical mouse projects a picture of a devil <just kidding> :)

Self Destructing Flash Drive from Kingston

Kingston DT Elite
Kingston Data Elite (DT Elite) is  an ordinary looking flash drive from the outside, but from the inside it's a toughie, which can't be forced to reveal it's secrets, which makes sure someone who steals or gets yours DT Elite can't get to what is inside; your files, pictures or data. And if some one tries too hard, it self-destructs by locking the entire drive.

Made possible with an hardware AES 128-bit encryption, DT Elite goes one step ahead of the "normal" flash drives by also locking the entire drive if 25 incorrect passwords are entered, effectively blocking "brute force attacks" or any kind of automated trick to get down to the data. But, what impresses us more is that there is virtual nil performance loss from the hardware based encryption/decryption process; offering data transfer rates up to 24 MB/sec for read and 14 MB/sec for write. The DT Elite is available in five models; 256 MB,  512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB and 4 GB with a lifetime warranty.
