10 totally ridiculous combo gadgets

From a combo taser/MP3 player to a computer mouse/VoIP phone, these Frankengadgets never should have seen the light of day.

The USB Hub and Thermometer

For all those times when you're plugging in USB devices and suddenly wonder what the indoor temperature is, Brando's USB Rota Rota Hub has you covered. It comes with three USB ports, each of which you can rotate 90 degrees, plus slots for SD, SDHC, Memory Stick Duo, MicroSD, and M2. But the real game-changers here are the two thermometers--one for reading indoor temperature in Fahrenheit degrees, and the other for doing the same job in Celsius degrees. The thermometers are electric rather than mercury-based, so you won't be tossing hazardous waste when you throw this worthless gadget out.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
