Anti-Static Bags

Jon Hylands sent me a link today for anti-static bags with the note:

“The anti-static bags are great – Digikey sells them in 100-packs for $6.18 [CAD].”

Pleo’s “Rechargeable and Replaceable” Battery

While I was in England, Marie Williams from UGOBE replyed to my email about Pleo’s battery, check it out below.

Scotty – “I was wondering what Caleb meant by Pleo’s batteries being “both
rechargeable and replaceable”.”

Marie – “When Caleb says that Pleo’s batteries
are both rechargeable and replaceable, it means that you will be able to
recharge Pleo’s battery, and that once the battery dies, you will be
able to replace it with a new one while keeping your same Pleo.”

Thank you for answering this question for my readers and I, Marie!

Pleo Release Date (sort of), and Package! (Video)

I just got a newsletter from Ugobe a few minutes ago, and it included a picture of the retail box that Pleo will come in.

Although I can not post the picture of the box here without infringing copyrights, I can explain it. We’re talking green, with a DNA strand running down the side, and a picture of Pleo right there for all to see on the front!

If you subscribe to the Ugobe mailing list (you still have time), you will be able to get one of the first Pleos for sale (oh yeah, and in the same paragraph, Caleb sayed some thing like “stay tuned to your email inbox next month…”) For the rest of you, I think it will be a little bit longer, till you can get your hands on a Pleo.

Pleo’s batteries will be “both rechargeable and replaceable”(?).

Lipo Battery Fire! (Video)

When I was going on to Google Video I found this on the front page:

For those of you who did not watch the video it is of a Lipo (Lithium-Polymer) battery fire.

Lipo batteries can be very dangerious.

To make it less dangerous some companies have made bags to put them in, like in this video:

If you ask me, I’ll buy the Lipo bags if I use Lipo batteries.

LipoSacks cost about $30 USD.
