USB Coffee warmer??????

  knockin on 11:26 09 Dec 2005

Just seen an ad in PCA (Feb) for a usb hub and hotplate combined - stand your coffee cup on it. It's not April is it??
I can just see me grabbing papers from my desk, snagging the cord of this device; launching a mug of hot coffee at my laptop, printer, vdu and bucket of Prozac: watching in horror as the hotplate snakes inevitably off the edge of the desk towards the cats' rear end, ripping the USB port from the computer as it does so.....
Happy Christmas everyone.

What excellent responses:
Not only will I be able to fulfil the above scenario for only £3.00 butI will, also, be able to power my car tyre inflating compressor with my laptop. Thanks folks. Rob

"Seen it down their gift isle!"

Where is this isle (sic)? Do I need a passport to get there?

try on of these if you have a spare bay, mount it above the USB mug warmer and you will have hot bagels to go with the coffee. click here

amongst all this fun and hilarity, are these devices good for the computer? or will the helproom be overwhelmed with problems like:
Cooking my oven-ready turkey seems to slow down my system clock, any ideas?
ps running XP home & gardens.
