    Don’t ask your grandparents where their credit card goes when they give it to a waiter at a restaurant.
    A quick impression of the raised numbers/name and the numbers on the back are all that’s needed. I think. Then the crook can use that card online or ever the phone easily.

  • News - Kill A Watt | about 5 years ago

    Give this a try for shutting everything off: http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=459516
    A little review of it: http://www.twit.tv/dgw694
    For those that don’t want to click on the links… it’s a multi-outlet power strip with a WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROLLED POWER SWITCH. The outlets are even spaced apart so you can plug in the transformers without blocking out other outlets. And it’s only $49.

  • News - Battery vs. Water Tank | about 6 years ago

    A pound of water weighs 8.33 pounds. 9 gallons of water would weight about 75 pounds.
    How much does the battery weigh?
    The solar cell can charge the battery for use at night.
    How fast would the water cool at night making the device useless? I think this device would be pretty useless in cold climates or climates that get cold at night.
