Hi Gadgettes!

First time writing in, but I came across this a few days ago and
thought it might be good Gadgettes fodder: The Pet Loo

Yeah. It’s a dog toilet.

The basic premise sounded fairly useful…up until I realized that you
have to empty trays and clean it yourself! I can’t imagine someone
being too lazy to take their dog outside in the morning, yet decidedly
non-lazy enough to dump out buckets of dog pee every single day anyway.

Much love for the show–keep up the hilarious work!

Hi Gadgettes
I was listening to your Green fail Podcasts and could not believe that you have toaster tongs, lemon squeezer AND a Lime Squeezer, have you ever heard of HANDS? Five fingers, it can pull, squeeze, crush, twist, grip and several other actions and its free, it comes with you when you are born, sheesh wasteful Americans. This reminds me the onion story about crap that is made for americans.

Hey Gadgettes,

Just wanted to comment on the story about the laser etched laptop tray. Who would pay $100 for a way to keep the heat from a laptop away from their legs? Men who like their sperm would. Here’s an old article from CNET about a study saying that laptop use affects male fertility.

I would certainly spend $100 to keep my “gun from shooting blanks” if ya know what I mean.

Love the show,
Keith in KY.
