The latest USB nonsense: Neon signs

It's one of the few USB gadgets we might not throw out--right away.

Gadgets.dk

In the insane world of USB gadgetry , it's often impossible to find anything useful . And this is probably no exception, but it's at least one example we wouldn't immediately throw out. Ever since college we've had a soft spot for neon signs, though we do have one minimum requirement: that they're legible, unlike the "Bar" sign included among a trio that includes the @ symbol and a smiley face seen on GeekAlerts. But we have to ask: Is it really necessary for this to have a USB connection, as opposed to a plain old wall outlet? We seriously hope that people aren't planning to set up this stuff with their laptops while on the go--and in public.
