    If you need to improve the taste of wine as it's poured from the bottle, buy better wine. :biggrin:

    It looks like a hair clip. Hmm..and doesn't fully wrap around the bottle neck, so won't even work to stop drips. :rolleyes:

    One of its claims is:

    "In contrast with most gases, oxygen is highly magnetically susceptible, and is attracted to a magnetic field."

    I thought this was only true of liquid oxygen.

    [ EDIT: Oh. It's paramagnetic].

    As for the veracity of the product, I wouldn't put any stock in it until I saw an independent test. Their own tests and four bucks will get you a coffee at Starbuck's.
