08/01/2011, The summer heat can be cruel especially when driving and you’re stuck in a traffic jam. Sure the air-con could help to cool your face and upper body, but ever notice that it fails to cool your bottom or back of your thighs?

04/05/2011, Thanko jumps aboard the convergence bandwagon with their latest laptop cooler which is also a desk, helping you kill two birds with a single stone.
