Easy Cap to Open Soda Bottles

Easy Cap could change the way we open soda bottles. It seems like technology always finds us better and simpler ways of doing things, even if it only saves us a few precious seconds of labor.

Remember when ring tabs used to be on soda and beer cans? I guess people would just carelessly litter by tossing the ring tabs over their shoulder. Someone in the early eighties figured out that you can attach the tab to the can itself. Now, this easier method of manufacture is a standard.

I suppose that the same could apply to soda bottle caps. I'm not talking about the glass bottles with the improved twist-off caps, but the plastic ones that always twisted off, probably from day one. Its all right to admit that you sometimes have a hard time opening these things, but the Easy Cap, designed by Shao-Nung Chen, should give you some more leverage with its teardrop shape. Heck, if you position your thumb just right, you can open your bottle with just one hand.

Sony Ericsson unveils Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro

Sony Ericsson unveils Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro. Sony Ericsson intends to grab its fair share of limelight where Android-powered smartphones are concerned with a couple more models to tickle your fancy and perhaps even have you part with your hard earned money to enjoy some Android goodness. The two handsets in question would be the Sony Ericsson xperia mini and Xperia mini pro, where the former is touted to be the smallest smartphone in the world that has HD video recording capability, while the latter boasts of intuitive fast messaging in a compact smartphone form factor.

The original mini series were quite successful in their own right, and this time around, you wont be disappointed either as both handsets will run on a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread right out of the box (so you need not worry about waiting for a software update like many of the other Android 2.2 Froyo handsets out there), best-in-class imaging and display technology from Sony, including Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine and HD video recording (720p).
