Finally, when someone calls tech support and says their cup holder is broken, they may be right!

You mean my CD Rom drive is not a coffee cup holder? Damn I wondered why the last one broke when I put that 32 oz cup of java up there. :)

I wonder how long it takes to warm up. I take it that it does not heat but instead tries to maintain temp as shown on the graph it still cools down slowly over 90 minutes.

Next they will have you pour your coffee into a tube that circulates it next to the CPU to heat it up.

This reminds me of a "Windshield defroster" I got for Christmas. I was skeptical, because the wire between the plugin and the "defroster" looks to be in the 24 gage range. Sure enough, the day came I tried it. Well, it doesn't make a bad scraper, but defroster, HA. :D

Yeah I had one of those "defrosters" that plugged into the cigarette lighter. I think the best it could do was to keep from freezing to the window. I do not think it ever activily melted any ice.

You're obviously not using the Winsheld defroster properly, I had one when I lived in Miami Beach and never had a problem. :P

Well I have to admit it worked much better when I moved from Massachusetts to Texas. Suddenly it worked like a champ!
