It’s winter. We’re all cold. And there doesn’t seem to be a single thing we can do about it. Plus the weatherman just said it’s going to get a whole lot colder. In many ways, those bears and beavers and things seem to have the right idea in getting fat and sleeping through it, but unfortunately there’s still a lot of good TV on this winter, so we can’t afford to that. Instead, we here at EBuzz are going to send you in the direction of some gizmos that will hopefully make the cold, snowy, windy months seem a little bit more bearable.


If you’ve got a particularly Scrooge-ish boss who won’t turn up the heating even during a snowstorm, then this might be the thing for you. It plugs into your computer like a normal mouse, but the main pad sends out lovely warm temperatures up to a toasty 104 degrees Fahrenheit. What you’re going to do with your other, non-mouse using hand is up to you. Maybe have a look out for a USB Warmer Keyboard? And if you don’t find one, you should invent one! Ebuzz, always on the cutting edge!



Brookstone jacket

Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you should completely give up on heading outdoors, but the idea of putting on layer after layer of clothing just to keep warm also sounds like a complete nightmare. However, this Brookstone jacket is rechargeable and uses its power source to heat up three areas with the clothing, so even if you’re out hiking or jogging in the brisk weather, you’ll still be snug as a bug in a rug.



Puffy Quilt headphones

On top of keeping your ears warm, these little beauties also contain some built-in stereo headphones that you can connect to your MP3 player or smartphone. Constructed from thermal polyester to keep the cold wind at bay, they’re also collapsible, so they won’t take up much space when you’re not wearing them.

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
