Questions?? Help, Magnet Pad

I saw a desktop Magnetic work pad so that when you work with the screws and stuff they fall on it and stick. Im always dropping stuff and loosing it. I dont know how physics allows a tiny screw to bounce 20 feet away on carpet??? So if anyone knows where to get one, please reply... NOTE to others who view this but dont know.. check back and find out for yourself and get one!!! Dont do micro anything without one. THANKs, and godspeed.

only hard drives and CRT monitors. anything else is pretty fine. I swiped my mobile phone with a magnet to show this principle once.

I still like the idea of a magnetic pad though

I have one of those little cheesy magnetic pizza place adds with there phone number glued face down on my pit table.

Its not a strong enough magnet to keep parts from bouncing of the table, but it holds them there in case of a nock on the table, etc.
