It’s probably a little redundant if you spend the entire day in front of your computer, but this tiny light-up mailbox will let you know when you’ve got a new email or message on a variety of social services including Facebook, Twitter and online mail services like Gmail, Windows Live Mail and Yahoo. Oh, and if you’re a laptop user, it will basically waste one of your limited USB ports.
