Don't we all need a USB letter opener?

We wish it received e-mail too.


How many times have you sat around wishing that you had a combination alarm clock and letter opener with a four-port USB hub? Yeah, we've lost count too.

But our prayers have been answered by a company in China, naturally, where entrepreneurs have proved willing to produce practically any idea--regardless of whether anyone needs it. No price is listed by Shenzhen Sunstars Electronics for the combo letter opener, which we spotted on Red Ferret, but we're guessing that it won't break the bank. And the alarm clock will keep you from falling asleep at the desk, so you'll be more productive at work.

What we wish it included, however, is a way to send and receive e-mail on the device. Then it would be worth getting, for the irony alone.
