Beyonce Knowles is Selling the Heat

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities,

Beyonce and Heat perfume

has already sold $3 million worth of her fragrance in the US in just one month.

During one in-store appearance in New York, 72,000 bottles of the singer’s scent - released in February - were purchased. That made Heat, an exclusive to Macy’s, the department store’s number one brand.

Beyonce previously stated that the scent - a mix of magnolia, neroli and blush peach scents - and has received a lot of positive reaction.

“I’m so happy with it. I’ve been working on it for a while now. I was on tour for a year, and I have meet-and-greets with fans. I’ve never in my life gotten so many compliments,” she said. “They makers have tests, but that was my testing! The fans loved it. They were like, ‘I love that, I’m getting that, why isn’t it out right now? I need it!’”

Thanko Keyboard Gives Warm Hands While Typing

Posted by Aaron Zollo Categories: Accessories, USB, Peripherals,

Thanko-USB-Keyboard-Heater

Thanko has previously released a keyboard to keep our arms and hands cool while typing.  They now have a new keyboard which can warm our extremities via USB.  The new keyboard is prepared for warm and cool weather in that it incorporates three fans which can cool, but also can provide some toasty heat as well.  The keyboard is currently in Japan and if you need to have this keyboard for yourself, you’ll need to find a decent importer as there is no mention of it going on sale in the U.S. any time soon.

A Wintertime Treat: Warmkeyboard Heats Things Up

warmkeyboardCube farm dwellers, say goodbye to stiff fingers.  Uncontrollable climate control systems can often leave us with numb digits, something that all of the “Cozy Legs” heaters, blankets and trips to the coffee machine in the world can’t fix.  Finally, someone has tried.

Whether you file this internally as just another USB accessory or a legitimate peripheral, Warmkeyboard has the potential to be useful in more than just the “inputting characters” way that your run-of-the-mill keyboard is.  Like your run-of-the-mill keyboard, it’s a standard 104-key plug and play keyboard with media hotkeys.  However, unlike your standard issue keyboard it has heating elements underneath the keys that keep your fingers nice and toasty while you work. 

Powered by both the USB plug and an AC adapter (unfortunately you can’t type AND be warm without two power sources), Warmkeyboard can be yours for $49.99.
