New Method for Peeling Eggs

While I don't agree with his method of egg-cooking (I put cold eggs in enough cold water to cover, bring to a boil, then immediately turn the water off and allow eggs to sit in the water for between 15 - 20 minutes. The residual heat cooks the eggs through without creating a nasty green yolk.) I think the "no-peel" peel is kinda clever. On his blog, Ferriss says that the baking soda is optional, but I think it would be necessary for very fresh eggs which are harder to peel because of their relative acidity. Ice water works too, but who wants to use up all of their ice cubes to cool eggs down? Particularly those of us who don't have automatic ice makers in our freezers. :)
