    Talking New Product USB Pet Rock

    Guys
    I am going to make these locally!
    Return of a Classic

    The Pet Rock phenomenon was an unbelievable experiment performed in the 70s by an advertising executive. The challenge: could he take a simple idea, market it, make people happy, and use it all to turn himself into a millionaire? The answer: yes. And . . . well, we at ThinkGeek love performing famous experiments to see if we can duplicate the outcome. But we need your help.

    Simply plug the USB cable into a free port and let the fun begin. The USB Pet Rock will instantly begin to work its magic. People will stop by and ask you what your USB Pet Rock does. Each time, you can make up a new story; for no matter what you say, it will be greater than the truth - because these USB Pet Rocks don't do a dang thing. Except make you smile. And confuse your friends and coworkers, which will make you smile even more. So, get your USB Pet Rock today, and help make me rich tomorrow.

    Here's why you need a USB Pet Rock now:

    • They make a great gift for everyone we can think of.
    • They don't need food or water.
    • They don't chew on your stuff.
    • They will make you instantly cool.
    • They never talk back to you.
    • They will forever love you in their own rocky way.
    • They are the greenest USB products ever created, as they draw absolutely no electricity.
    • They are compatible with Windows (7 and lower); Mac (all OS's); Linux; and all other past, present, and future operating systems - no drivers needed!


    Product Features
    • Pet Rock Plugs in with USB and gives you love!
    • No feed or care needed
    • Draws no power
    • Compatible with any OS including Mac, Windows and Linux
    • Each rock is unique (Please allow for natural variations in your USB Pet Rock)
    • Rock is approx. 4" x 4" x 3"
    • Includes 18" long USB cable

    Even more products

    Here just for us guys worried about power cuts:

    Harness The Energy In The Atmosphere To Power Your PC!
    Tired of shelling out the to The ManTM for your electrical power needs? Are personal windmill power stations just too passe? Think fuel-cells are great, but you hate having to pay for the hydrogen? What's a self-respecting independent consumer to do? Thanks to the fine folks at ThinkGeek ColdFusionWorks Labs, your dreams have become reality with the Desktop Zero-Point Power Generator!

    But how does it work? At the quantum level, all matter in the universe vibrates constantly - even at absolute zero! The Desktop Zero-Point Power Generator takes advantage of this seething abundant energy by converting naturally occurring EM energy into 120 Volts / 200 Amps of electricity.

    The generator is 8 inches square, and weighs just under 3 pounds. When activated, the generator will generate power indefinitely! The unit emits a very quiet whirr, and less than 600 rem of residual ionizing radiation! ThinkGeek recommends you drain the unit's non-volitile waste chamber once every three months, and dispose of the tritium/deuterium slurry at a licensed disposal facility.

    Sorry, not available in 220V.

    You guys are way too slow.

    Just don't expect it to be delivered anytime soon
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
