It's all fun and games until someone gets sued

Technology Associates, whose Web site is the somewhat unfortunately named, were some of the first makers of commercial LED flashlights. I reviewed several of their products.

They haven't come up with anything much new for a while, but their one new-ish product - which has actually been around for more than a year now, but which I only just discovered - was worth waiting for.

It's got the same control electronics in it as their perfectly good little "Derringer"...

...but it's got a crank charger.

So they decided to honour one of the world's premiere cranks by calling it... the GeneRay X1!

I invite you all to submit, in the comments, your suggestions for other products that should be named after a celebrity.

    That's one ugly hand. Hasn't this company ever heard of a hand model? :)

    The first thing that came to my mind was the "Jeff Wrench". Named for the loony talk-show host Jeff Rense. But I guess it doesn't count. He's not exactly a celebrity. Is he?

    Oh, and a question to moetop... Which hand are you talking about? ;-)
