Welcome to the weekend! Lets sniff about a bit and see what caught my eye this week online.
- Bob Parks at Wired has found the new must-have office accessory, the Ikaros Line Thrower. It’s hand-held, weighs 8.8 pounds, costs $599, and fires a safety line over a 1,000 feet. Did I mention that it’s rocket-propelled?
- Wired goes two for two this week, with Chris Sims review of the WaxVac. Chris has a series of reviews centered around those products you see on late-night infomercials. The WaxVac Ear Cleaner doesn’t exactly rise to the challenge, but it is a comedy goldmine. (I’m talking Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer good.)
- As regular readers are aware, I’m on a quest to downsize my geek. And thus far, things have gone pretty well. Over at Lifehacker, Adam Dachis has a nice Q&A up about how to accurately track your weight loss.
Have a great weekend!
