Demand? Meet Supply


With all the talk of late about how hot laptops can get (although as a long-time laptop user I know this isn't entirely a new topic), the picture for the Targus Tornado Notebook Chill Mat jumped out at me when flipping through the Circuit City circular yesterday (and I want to say I saw one in the Best Buy or Target ones, too).

Chill Mat

It seemed logical enough (and a cheap enough product to quickly throw into the market) - an insulated mat to put under the laptop.  However, when I just went to grab the actual link, I was surprised to see "USB Connection" in the specs.  It turns out this thing actually has fans running in it!
