Stay cool with your PC


It’s almost May, the sun’s started appear a bit more regularly – and we’re all stuck indoors for most of the week. Once the temperatures start to rise, you might need a little help cooling off – with something like this Lindy USB fan.

Yes, it’s another novelty USB gadget, but this one does have some use. Just plug it into any available USB port and get a blast of cool air. Ideal for a stuffy office, even better if you’re on a cattle truck busy train with your notebook and need a blast of air to keep you melting. And with a long (45cm), flexible neck, you can direct the air easily.

Ok, you can buy one of those little battery-powered fans, but that’s not going to impress your fellow train travellers half as much!

You can pick up the Lindy USB fan for around £8.
