SteriPEN Adventurer

This UV Water sterilizer is not only small but it also intelligent. All you have to do is turn it on and stir the light end of it in the glass of water that you are not sure of drinking (like in third world countries). Do that for a minute and then take it out and drink the water. Easy and fool proof! If you take it out sooner than it needs to be in the water, then it gets angry and shows you a red light! It sells on Amazon.com for $130 USD. Source: Cool Hunting: SteriPEN Adventurer

Do Not Call Register (Australia)

Are you tired of telephone calls on your home or mobile numbers from people wanting you to switch to their phone service or to sign-up for a credit card? Then you should go to: https://www.donotcall.gov.au/ Put in all your numbers and the Australian Government will add your numbers to the "Do Not Call" list. By that we mean an opt-out list. This means that it is illegal for companies to call you to telemarket their products. It is easy to do and takes just a few minutes to fill out the form. If you do not have an Internet connection, you can call this number instead:1300 792 958 If after 30 days you still get calls then lodge a complaint at: https://www.donotcall.gov.au/complaints/complaint.cfm
