COMMENTARY: USB-powered Drink Cooler

So I received my USB-powered drink cooler in the mail the other day from CoolIt.  Microsoft is in the middle of moving offices so I’m having to do a lot of heavy lifting… and I thought the drink cooler would come in handy.
 
I was right.  This thing is cool – if you’ll pardon the pun.  It gets down to a good 40-45 degrees Fahrenheit.  The folks at http://www.thetechzone.com/?m=show&id=487 did an evaluation of the technology and I think they did a thorough job, but they were a little unfair about it’s effectiveness.  I suspect that if you have a metal cup or sorts, it would defintely be more effective in maintaining a cold drink but normal Diet Coke cans seem to work just fine.
