USB Bell Dings When You get Mail

Posted in USB by Reuben Drake on July 25th, 2011

The bell has now been merged with your computer via USB. Instead of computer generated dings to tell you when you have new email, this bell will ding to let you know. This would probably get old after a while, but at least you will know when you have mail.

The USB bell uses an electromagnet to activate the bells sound. It’s easy to build, you just need a few parts and then you’ll have to do some soldering.

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2010

Blockbuster is still trying hard to catch up with other services despite lagging far behind. Their latest trick? If you’re receiving your Blockbuster movies by snail mail you’ll soon be able to open your mailbox and find Xbox, PlayStation, and Wii games as well.

As usual for Blockbuster this is too little, too late. But if you are interested and have a Blockbuster account, go for it.

If you consider yourself a true Star Wars fan, then you will want to check this out. Bigbadtoystore.com is offering an item that will geek up your mail delivery/reception. This R2D2 mail box is available for pre-order on the site for $38.99. A collector’s edition will cost you an additional $2.00.

It just sits there and doesn’t really do anything, but who cares? It’s cool. At least until your neighbors steal it. They don’t say how big it is, but for that price it is obviously on the small side.

Gmail pushed to select BlackBerrys

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2009

Gmail pushed to select BlackBerrysOn the heels of RIM adding a push API, Google is enabling some BlackBerry users to get their Gmail and Google Calendar stuff on their handsets. Don’t jump for joy just yet. There are some shortcomings that limit its usefulness. Like the fact that users have to be connecting to BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances, and those instances have to be backed by Microsoft Exchange.

Also, only 250 users per Enterprise Server instance can get their mobile Gmail on, changes made to appointments on a handset cannot be pushed back to Google Calendar. Plus, searching for Gmail messages still requires a separate app. Updates and improvements are on the way, but until then this is what you get.

GPS Mail Logger will track your mail

GPS Mail Logger will track your mailIf you want to track your mail, it’s usually as simple as using FedEx, UPS, or priority mail. But if you want more shipping options, and to track your mail with more accuracy, you’ve been out of luck until now. Just remember, a watched package never boils. Or, something like that.

Just stick this GPS Mail Logger in with your letter or package and you’ll be able to follow it wherever it goes. Keep in mind that this is a package worth watching because this tracker costs $695.95. Funny thing is, even when this sort of thing comes down in price and is used by many people, thereby easing the Post Office’s workload and cost, their prices still will not likely come down.
