[8:30 AM] Easy iMac Restarts With UniSwitch

Contour Design, the makers of the UniMouse and UniTrap, has released the UniSwitch, a device that allows an iMac to be manually restarted without the use of Apple's legendary "paper clip" method. According to Contour Design:

The UniSwitch allows you to reset your iMac with the push of a button. It is a one-piece design with 2 pins that fit onto the iMac precisely. Remove the adhesive covering, place it on your iMac and you now have an easy solution for restarting your computer. In addition, there will be no more bending and hassling with paperclips.

Contour Design's UniSwitch is the first 2 pin design that allows the user to reset their iMac with no hassles.

  • iMac Reset Switch
  • Restart your iMac with the push of a button
  • Translucent Frost design, to perfectly match your iMac
  • Easy Assembly

The UniSwitch is available for US$5. While there is no additional information, you can find images of the product at the company's web site.
