GemTot USB Beacons

GemTot Beacons are great. We picked them because they are USB powered, so very development friendly because they don't need batteries. They've been working very solidly!

I am very happy with my GemTot Beacon. I use it in my car, so when I park it, it is very easy for me to find it!
