After looking at the Acer Iconia Tab today and again shaking my head in disgust that Acer didn't optimize their Windows enviroment for touch use. It suddenly hit me that I could just create a Windows 7 Theme file for the touch optimized settings which I talk about in my Windows 7 Touch Optimization article so people could just apply it and immediately be on step closer to a better touch experience.

So here it is.

Windows 7 Touch Optimized Theme.

Note that I always believe that these touch optimizations should be tailored to a person's personal usage so do remember to check out the touch optimization article even after you apply the theme!

These are surprisingly nice to hold in hand.

Only recently from the last few years did I finally figure out the beauty of duct tape. And now I have found yet another versatile tool/construction material that is very useful in repairs/hacking stuff. Epoxy putty! Here's what I'm using it for.

What's so cool about epoxy putty? When you start to use it, it's like Play Doh. Then after a few minutes (which can be a good or bad thing) it starts hardening into something rock hard. This makes it good for repairing holes in items, reshaping stuff, etc. etc.

My most recent use was when I had to do some exploratory surgery on the wheel of WZ's old baby stroller. After I was done, I realized that the hole I left in the hub cap was a water risk so I plug the hole with epoxy putty and it's sealed up perfectly again!

Wonder what other weird stuff I can do with this?

I picked up another Car 5V power adapter from Low Yat today.

On first glance it looks like any other 2 USB plug power adapter, but on a closer look.

Other dual plug power adapters I saw promised 2.1Amps when only ONE device is connected. This one states that the top port always delivers 2.1A regardless of wheter or not a second device is plugged into the bottom port.

This is a Kensington Power Bolt Duo Car Charger, so I hope it's not lying about it's current output.
