Office DIY Ideas – How to Turn Office Junk into Useful Gadgets!

This is a Guest Post by Jeff Saporito from our partner blog site TestFreaks.com.

Few things on this earth become as cluttered, dirty and full of mysteries as the desks where we work all day.  From shriveled lettuce fragments from a 2005 sandwich still stuck between the keys, to a curious 5” floppy disk full of unknown data that has been rolled over by the chair wheels a dozen times, there are all sorts of things buried within and around our workspaces.  This is particularly

Hidden Wireless Camera Detector!

Remember we featured a spy camera pen before?  Well, this spy camera actually “detects” any hidden wireless cameras by scanning RF signals.

If you are into some highly classified work, you might want to get this and be protected from unwanted lurkers.

Sprint Novatel’s MiFi 2200 Portable EV-DO Router Coming Soon!

Sprint will be rolling out their new EV-DO router where you can make any location a Wi-Fi hotspot.  Now, this still will be very slow since EV-DO is barely fast enough for one computer.
