Taobao product recommendation – waist fan

I first came across the idea of wearable fan years ago when Kuchofuku invented the “air-conditioned” jacket (the article mentions the invention came about way back in 2004).

Taobao product recommendation – Ergonomic vertical mouse

A mouse is said to be used three times as much as the keyboard, and prolonged use can lead to aches and disorders. The design of a typical mouse is not ergonomic at all and it forces your arms to be in an unnatural posture. For this reason, I decided to try a vertical mouse. …

Taobao product recommendation – Phone/Tablet screen mirroring dongle

There is a standard way of performing wired screen mirroring, from the USB port of an Android phone/tablet to a HDMI-input screen (e.g. TV or a portable screen), and that is through an MHL cable, provided the phone supports it.
