One of the more popular features on CNBC.com is our "Pony" blog, which looks at the lighter side of the "Great Recession."

Perman's Really Smart Stuff
CNBC.com's Cindy Perman appears on the Today show to discuss really smart products designed to make our lives easier.

Cindy Perman, who writes the blog, appeared on NBC's "Today Show" Thursday to talk about her recent post on cool products invented by ordinary people.

Entitled "Wow, That's Smart," Cindy demonstrated everything from a device to keep your coffee hot for hours to (our favorite) plastic "lawn hands" that let you scoop up big piles of yard waste.

The blog was a big hit, and we thought Cindy's appearance with Kathie Lee and Hoda was, too. Take a look at the video. We think you'll agree.
