This Week In Smartphone Software Updates
When will you be updated?
Outdoor gear manufacturer Coleman was just trying to do a nice thing by creating the Portable Propane Coffee Maker. It works like the machine in your kitchen, using only water, a filter and some coffee grounds. Oh, and a tank of propane.
What do you get when you spend a whopping $US173 on a cooler? Stainless steel and cold beers, that’s what.
If you’re like us, you might use a cordless screwdriver once a year, long enough for its charge to trickle away. But get this: The Coleman FlashCell Cordless Screwdriver will be ready for you in a jiffy, charging in 90 seconds or less. That’s because it’s not charging batteries, it’s charging a large capacitor, sucking up the juice and getting you back to your screwing duties lickety-split (yikes, how many double entendres can I use in one sentence?).
The Popular Mechanics reviewer says it’ll last a little less than two thirds as long as a regular rechargeable screwdriver on a charge, but then, you can plug it in, and a minute and a half later it’s ready to go again. Only drawback we can see? It’s $99.99. [Popular Mechanics, via Oh Gizmo]
The Fishpen, by outdoor gear company Coleman, is a telescoping fishing rod in a pen sized container. It’s for when you happen to pass a creek, or pond, and the mood strikes you to Fish your little heart out and hook some bass in the mouth for the pure love of the sport. The compact bronze reel snaps on after extending the metal pole. Two pens, a case, and hooks, weights and bobbers for $40 bucks.
