A widely circulated story holds that the word gadget was invented when Gaget, Gauthier & Cie, the company behind the repoussé construction of the Statue of Liberty (1886), made a small-scale version of the monument and named it after their firm; however this contradicts the evidence that the word was already used before in nautical circles, and the fact that it did not become popular, at least in the USA, until after World War I. Other sources cite a derivation from the French gâchette which has been applied to various pieces of a firing mechanism, or the French gagée, a small tool or accessory.

No two people are the exact same. Even identical twins don’t have every hair follicle in the exact same spot. That being said, if you are born without much in the way of ability to move your fingers, working on a computer would be the easiest of tasks. Instead of signing off on it completely, you can learn to modify your interactions through a different way of inputting information.

Chinese gadget manufacturers are constantly closing the gap between big brand technology firms. Matching them in component quality, device speed, and quality of materials. You can look at a lot of Chinese electronics as copies. Another way to see it is that they are learning and catching up with how to produce the best electronics gadgets and quality devices.
Essentially a weird-looking, kitchen-centric Amazon Echo with a projector (it’s a Magic 8-Ball for the 21st century), the Egg not only looks up receipes you ask for, but projects step-by-step videos to help you make them. There’s a similar concept assistant from Bosch, but it’s not nearly as goofy looking, which is part of Hello Egg’s charm. If it rolls its eye at my cooking skills, though, it’s gonna end up scrambled.
A characteristic class of US products––perhaps the most characteristic––is a small self-contained unit of high performance in relation to its size and cost, whose function is to transform some undifferentiated set of circumstances to a condition nearer human desires. The minimum of skills is required in its installation and use, and it is independent of any physical or social infrastructure beyond that by which it may be ordered from catalogue and delivered to its prospective user. A class of servants to human needs, these clip-on devices, these portable gadgets, have coloured American thought and action far more deeply––I suspect––than is commonly understood.

The keyboard is so much better than using the touch screen. Love that the company plants trees for every item you buy too.

I know what you’re thinking: A router?! I have no clue if it’s any good, but this geometric orb, available in gold or silver, certainly doesn’t look like a piece of networking technology. It also offers real-time network security for every device connected to it.
I never understood why people get personalized license plates with messages that are so cryptic that the guy behind them in traffic would need to be a codebreaker to figure it out. This LED message sign can be mounted to your rear windshield and programmed with a wireless remote so you get your point across loud and clear. The message even scrolls at three different speeds so you can tempt fate with that 300-pound trucker you just flipped off by fully expressing your feelings. $39.99 – Think Geek
