Poppit was designed to store your orphan fruit and veggie halves, featuring concentric layers that provide a tight seal on any exposed produce, from onions to apples. Simply push a halved fruit or vegetable into Poppit’s surface, and one of its silicone rings will engage automatically, expanding to accommodate produce regardless of size.

I'm sure I saw a gadget advertised a good while ago - a remote that you aim at an irritating noise, so you can't hear it anymore. Sends noise at it so that its vibrations won't reach your ear or something. Sounds silly but has anyone heard of this, does it work?

Simulation Software
Can anyone here suggest a simple to use FREE circuit simulation program?
I'm looking to build some simple LED circuits and perhaps a PWM powersupply in the future. I've found dozens of flavors of SPICE. But they all seem to be like hammering in a thumb tack with a wrecking ball.
Really all I need is the mickey mouse, MS paint, tinker toy level of simulation. Any suggestions?

TX went for a swim
it's been a long 48 hours.

the rain on friday morning, was more like a sheet of water.. more like
swimming than walking to work.

I thought my TX would be fine at the bottom of my Kathmandu bag. I
thought wrong.

my fancy new teflon "riding coat" (the kind aussie cowboys use,
supposedly)deflect all the water to pool at my back, and into the

I first noticed when i removed my ipod from my bag, and put it on my
desk at work. i left to make a coffee and returned to find the papers
underneath it soaked through to mush...

supressing a scream, i casually opened my bag, to find my cellphone
and my Palm TX, in a pool of water.

The ipod was fine - the buttons that click wheel have proven to be
cmpletely water tight.

The phone, - - i wouldnt mind a new phone, but it was also
functioning perfectly.

but the palm tx was not looking good. The foamy standard cover protect
it well from impact, but in damp it wicked all the water in towards
the screen. It was drenched, i could see the water moving around under
the screen

pulling on the cowboy coat again, i wacked th dial on my BT headset as
ran out of the office. I voice dialled my other half, callum, and run
2 blocks uphill in the rain, the wind so strong it nearly knocked me
sideways on vivian street.

At Callum's workshop, the other hardware g33ks gathered around, with
comments "It's a gonner", "it's fried", and other helpful comments.

Callum pulled it apart, and left it under a lamp. there ware water all
through the screen, in inside the LCD.

But, hurrah hurrah !!! no water in the circuitry of the main board.

so, a day under the lamp - and a day of fretting .

I just now took it home, to the charger, and waited..

and it's WORKING!! can you believe it? There's now a big finger print
visible on the screen, but other than that unscathed!

it's fetching my email right now.

It's so good to have my TX back.

Hi There
Evening all,

Just found this community, looks nice, I've yet to have a read through it but I though I would just say hello to everyone. I'm Benn, but I'm commonly reffered to as "The BN" as in,  the french chocolate biscuits. I'm 15, from dear old England, much to my dismay, and I spend way too much time sat at my computer, which happens to be a rather worn out Dell Inspiron 2650 for all you curious  people. 

Before I bring this little introduction of Me-ness to an end, Have many people here had a chance to play with the SketchUp program that google have just bought? I believe I wrote something about it the other day in my journal. What do people think of it?

I'm going back to XM radio now (drool over my delphi).

LEDs not just for case mods anymore.
There’s a really excellent, largely non-technical analysis in the article LEDs to Outshine Fluorescent Lamps found in the July 2005 issue of Nikkei Electronics Asia Online. The author, Satoshi Okubo, expertly explains the market forces in play in the solid state lighting industry, and gives an excellent glimpse of the developments to come over the next five years or so. There’s also some really superb diagrams to help the reader understand that while we’re very near a tipping point today, there’s a lot of room for improvement in solid state lighting, and it’s not all about price points.

Some great observations that are unique to this article (as far as I know):
White LED prices have dropped 20% each of the last three years
White LEDs are 100 times as expensive as fluorescent (in dollars/lumen)
Packaging improvements learned in the low-output market are translating to the high-output (illumination) market
Solid State lighting removes barriers to entry for companies interested in entering the lighting industry

Make sure you click the diagrams to get big versions, they are very informative.
