Push Notifications on the iPhone are dandy and all, but what about on the good old ‘puter? Enter the Brando USB Mail Box Friends Alert. When you receive a new email (Gmail, Yahoo, etc), a Facebook update or new Tweet this USB attached device lights up. Keep in mind if you’re anything like me (I’m really popular and get a ton of SPAM email) this thing might be permanently lit. I wonder if you can tweak it to represent just Facebook updates? Now that might be a tad more useful. You can grab it for $18.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
