'Magic' fan keeps laptop out of the inferno

Its design looks a little satanic, however.

There are plenty of portable USB fans intended to keep your laptop under control , but this one has a distinction no others can claim: supernatural forces. Although the distributors of Evercool's "Magic Notebook Cooling Fan," insist that "evil forces are probably not involved," how else can one explain a design that looks more than a little satanic?

Granted, there's no goat head in the center of its pentagram, but the red LED ring that glows when it's in use would definitely freak us out. It's a good thing GeekSugar says the fan rotates only 180 degrees because, if did the entire 360, we wouldn't be able to stop thinking of Linda Blair in The Exorcist.
