SMART STUFF #7, VOLUME 3. JULY 2007 |..1..2..3..4..5



The battery mower is back with improved battery tech.
Ordinary lawn mowers are supposed to be among the biggest air polluters in any community. Two-stroke engines, gas mixed with oil, no exhaust catalysts, spillage... Electric mowers are of course a lot better for the environment, but everyone is not comfortable trailing a long power cord across the lawn. The optimal tool would be the battery powered lawnmower, but these have been hampered with heavy batteries, short operating time, and exacting care. Now, however, these issues may well be resolved and the battery mowers may become a real alternative. The new battery lawnmowers have lithium-ion batteries that are lighter, more powerful, and does not need the complicated care the old ones required. Here is one of them, the Bosch Rotak 43 LI for about SEK 4.000:- (approx. USD 590:-) in stores.

Kastrull med inbyggd slev från Alessi

Cooking pot with integrated spoon.
It is called the
Pasta Pot and it is one of the new releases from Alessi. The pot has been developed and designed by designer Patrick Jouin working with chef Alain Ducasse. The basic idea is that you should cook the pasta and the pasta sauce in the same pot, at the same time, and then serve from the Pasta Pot. That is why the pot comes with both its own specially designed trivet and the integrated ladle. Chef Alain Ducasse has also worked out some new recipes for pasta dishes especially for the new pot and method of cooking. We have not seen the pot in any brick-and-mortar stores, but it is GBP 118:- (about USD 238:-) on Amazon UK.

vinflaskehållare för kylskåpet
Refrigerator wine bottle cradle.
A bottle holder like this could be very useful in the fridge, since it would allow us to use unused space. It needs a grid fridge shelf, but most fridges have those. Available from, among other places, Get Organized where it is USD 1:98 for a pair. Marked down from USD 9:98. [Via]

The picture comes from the 3 website.

Update from the country.
We have gone to Gotland on vacation, but that does no longer mean that the Smart Stuff site needs to go silent. With new tech, an expanded 3G net (and some cash) we can now be online in the country, aboard the boat, in the car, on the bus... well, you name it. With our new wireless modem we can connect to the internet, e-mail and FTP everywhere where 3 has coverage. We have tested numerous places; on the train, the bus, on the dock in Nynäshamn, and now in Havdhem, Gotland. There was no problem installing and setting up. The 3 plan is SEK 99:- (approx. USD 15:-) a month for 0,384 Mbit/s and SEK 199:- (about USD 29:-) a month for 3,6 Mbit/s. With the 0,3 Mbit plan they charge for traffic above 1 GB a month. Both plans also charge SEK 99:- (about USD 15:-) a month for the modem or PC card, but you could also buy it for SEK 1.495:- (about USD 217:-).

..1 July 2007

PS. The reason we chose 3 was partly because they are MacOS compatible (some aren't), partly because they offer the 3,6 Mbit/s speed (some don't) and partly because they ship the modem with a short USB cable which keeps it from blocking the adjacent USB port (some companies modems do). Our travel computer; a 12" PowerBook G4, is unfortunately lacking a PC card slot. /Ed.
