    Now if only I could fan the inside of my iPhone, it gets really hot when tethering. I get getting hot on jailbreak apps, but tethering is a basic function

    He should have just made the fan that plugs into the connector with a cord so you can put it out your window when you're driving or something

    Use an office fan to spin the fan on the iPhone or does this defeat the purpose? Lol

    I'd rather kill the polar bears. That's one ugly case.
    iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.

    Just like adding "in bed" to the end of a fortune makes it funny, adding "for an iPhone" to the end of a bad product idea makes it newsworthy.

    For every tree-hugging fool, there's some company trying to part him from his money with a feel-good product that likely caused more damage to the environment in its production and shipping than it will ever offset by the electricity it produces. A real wind turbine has a specially designed blade and alternator to maximize efficiency. This thing is a portable fan with a diode in an ugly case that won't fit in your pocket.

    Might as well try charging your iPhone using dissimilar metals and some citrus fruit. Or better yet, just plug it in TO THE WALL and check the air pressure in your tires and insulation in your attic if you REALLY want to have a measurable impact.

    If it has this AND solar on the backside, we're in business! He just needs to partner up with Novothink (makers of the iPhone solar charging case) and then we're covered day or night out in the wilds!

    I can't tell you the number of times I've been stuck out in the Kalahari or Gobi deserts without access to reliable power, but having wind/solar iPhone would be neat: when is the iPad version coming?

    I have a use for this. We go trekking in Nepal and also recently climbed kilimanjaro. It's a good alternative to the solar chargers which can be heavy.
