Selvin kindly provided a last minute inspiration with one of his comments this morning (GMT+1).

This is singularly the most useless piece of plastic I have ever purchased. Suffice it to say that it was a joke Christmas present I bought a couple of years ago from a 'Poundland' shop (every item 1ukpound), but I couldn't ever think of a suitable candidate to inflict it upon. This challenge caused me to liberate it from its robust plastic packaging, and fire it up for the first (and probably last) time.

It's USB-powered! Here it is in context, next to a nice solid, metal-cased much more useful piece of computer equiment.

Alan, your disgust of this object makes me feel guilty.
I have a couple of them. :?

Sparkly. My kids used to have night lights like that. They didn't very last long.

Alan,

I've been looking for a laptop USB light and this qualifies! Although, if I bought one of these my wife would know for sure I'd gone off the deep end. She's already skeptical about some of the computer stuff I buy. e.g Why do you need more than one USB memory card? I hesitate to tell her my memory is not what it used to be. :?

Aloha
