The Dyson Air Multiplier claims to be able to accelerate airflow by 15 times (or up to 55 mph) all without any visible blades-seems a little like magic. You can place your hand "through" the fan, float a balloon through it, and even feel safe letting a child play with it. So how in the heck does this contraption create an air draw and push? Our own Robert Cong is on the case and gets to the bottom of the mystery.

While I'm happy to report that Jameco's customer feedback is usually very positive, it's also quite common to get an email from customers accusing us of excessive greed when it comes to the price we charge for shipping. Most customers realize that our rates are very competitive, but frankly, the complaints about the price of shipping lightweight packages are justified.
For years I've tried to carefully respond to every one of these complaints explaining the challenges of shipping from Jameco's perspective. I always assure customers that Jameco was not getting rich on the rates charged for small orders (and in many cases Jameco was losing money).
Until today, there's one thing, I haven't been able to say.
