Black & Decker Revinvents the Shredder with the iShred Vertical Shredder

Black & Decker iShred Vertical ShredderShredding your sensitive documents is always the best thing you can do, and a large proportion of households invest in shredders to help reduce the risk of identity theft in this modern world. The only problem with shredders is that their design hasn’t really altered from when they were first brought to the personal and home office markets many years ago; no one ever thought that shredders could ever become anything beautiful – they were always destined to get shoved under a desk, all alone. …

Staple-less Stapler

I recently tried out a staple-less stapler which works without traditional metal staples. The staple-less stapler (which I’m going to shorten to ‘sls’) works by cutting out a tab of the paper, wrapping it around and tucking it back into a small slot (take a look at the picture for a better idea).

The sls doesn’t work that well beyond a few sheets of paper, as its cutters aren’t that powerful, not to mention that it’s completely hand-powered. I also don’t care for the size of the hole that is made in the paper. Let’s say you wanted to add/remove some pages and re-staple, then you’ll end up with a quite a few large holes in your stapled pages. Last thing is that the ‘staple’ itself isn’t that strong so after you’ve folder the paper over a few times, it will lose its integrity.

Overall, I think I’ll stick with my traditional staplers. Office Space kit, anyone? This is a cool concept item but not too practical in my opinion. It’s pretty surprising how many places actually sell these though.

Microsoft ordered to stop selling Word 2003/2007

A federal judge has ordered Microsoft to stop selling Microsoft Word 2003 & 2007 versions in 60 days, because it was ruled that they [Microsoft] infringed Canadian company i4i’s patents. Of course, Microsoft says it will appeal.

What I wonder is if this ruling stands up, how is Microsoft going to handle the huge quantity of Word licenses that are sold as part of Office bundles particularly by OEM computer makers who include Office in their packages?

OfficePOD Personal Office


No, this isn’t another April Fool’s joke – the OfficePOD personal office takes working from home to a new level. More and more people are working from home these days, but many find they get put off by distractions around the home, such as noisy pets and noisy children. The OfficePOD allows you to have your own office just outside your home giving you the best of both worlds; you don’t get distracted and you can get to your office in 10 seconds!

The innovation is made out of luxury materials and will be available primarily for the UK market to rent for abut $7100 a year – you’d definitely want your company to be paying for this. I can, however, see one major flaw – where do you go for your Starbucks on your way to the office?

Phantom Keystroker

Office pranks can be fun… remember the Annoy-a-tron?

Welcome to the next generation of office pranks… the Phantom Keystroker. The Phantom Keystroker may look like a harmless circuit board, but it’s actually a devious contraption of unlimited office-based torture. Simply discreetly attach the Phantom Keystroker to any extra USB port on your victim’s computer, no drivers needed. The Keystroker emulates a keyboard and mouse and periodically makes random mouse movements and types out odd garbage text and phrases. A simple jumper setting allows you to choose between either keyboard garbage typing, annoying mouse movements or both. An adjustment pot sets the duration between “events”. We recommend you don’t set it too frequently so as to extend the agony. Your hapless co-worker pal will think his computer has been possessed or infected by a destructive virus. As he writhes in anger and furiously dials tech support you can rest easy with a job well done.
