Fuel Gauge Mug – simple way to keep it topped up all day

This Fuel Gauge Mug is a weird but fascinating idea. A heat sensitive scale printed onto the outside lets you know exactly how much liquid you’ve got left to go. Like, you’re having difficulty peering over the top of the cup, see? Maybe you’re a tad too short? Anyhoo, it’s yours for £8.16.  That means when the cup is full and hot, the gauge will show as full and as you guzzle your coffee down (or as the temperature of the…

RazorLame – freeware lets you create super quality MP3 files from WAV with one click

RazorLame is a brilliant freeware program which lets you create super high quality MP3 files from your WAV tracks. The advantage is you get all the quality of an uncompressed track in a much smaller file size. Win! The site is also clearly a call to arms against those who diss MP3 as an inferior sounding format, and judging by my tests, they’re right. I converted a few tracks from huge WAV files and managed to shrink them dramatically (in…

Stop the COICA Internet Censorship and Copyright Bill

The COICA (Combating Online Infringements and Counterfeits Act) is yet another of the growing list of stupid legislative initiatives being rushed through the process in order to censor the Internet. What is the matter with these people? The idea is to create a blacklist of domain names which ISPs must use to censor sites considered to be infringers. As with all of this dumb legislation, it will do nothing to stop real commercial piracy, but will instead result in innocent…

Fastrades – buy, sell or swap over Twitter

Fastrades is a brand new (in beta) free service which lets you buy or sell your stuff using Twitter. But I can already do that, I hear you cry? Well yes, but apparently this system makes it a snap to create an advert and have it broadcast to those who might be interested. Coming soon, an Android/iPhone app and automated tweeting. Interesting.  Fastrades is now live for London-based users to enter information about what they’d like to buy/sell/swap and we’ll be keeping an…

The UFO Bombshell – are we all now too scared of being ridiculed to consider the impossible?

First point…I am scared of being ridiculed. I also have absolutely no idea whether there are UFO or alien craft in our universe, or a desire for them to exist. I’m happy with the status quo, thanks very much.   The only thing I would like to point out is when 120 serious type former US military people stand up publicly and give testimony that they believe we have been visited by ‘beings from another world’, we should perhaps stop a…

Xmarks is closing their doors – Head on over there and show them some love

If you’re an Xmarks user then I’m sure by now you’ve received an email announcing that they’re closing up shop in 90 days. According to the Xmarks blog they’ve been unable to find either a viable business-model, or a buyer for the company. It would be a truly sad day for the internets if this fantastic and extremely reliable service disappears, and a sad indictment that a top 1,500 website can’t make money in this day and age. What I…

Photo Album Story Teller – attach digital audio stories to your photo album

The Photo Album Story Teller lets you attach audio notes to your real life photo album via the use of clever ID stickers. Just place a sticker under a photo and when you run the device over the sticker it will start replaying the audio you recorded to go with the photo. An interesting combination of old and new. The product comes with 500 stickers, which should be enough for most album needs. $99.95.  You simply attach a coded sticker near the…

Cobra 30 Mile 2-Way Radio – who needs a cell phone when you can chat for free?

This Cobra 30 Mile 2–Way Radio set comes with hands-free operation, 142 privacy codes and a 10 channel memory for finding some clear air. We’re not completely sure that 30 miles really means 30 miles – we seem to remember that most 3 kilometre walkie talkies actually struggle to get a signal further out than the length of the driveway – but we’re willing to suspend disbelief for a while. You’ll need to suspend $79.99 if you want to prove…

Frame Your TV – add some class to your Far Eastern plastic wall mount

Spruce up your television space with a Frame Your TV surround, which the makers claim will revolutionise your life and result in an endless stream of good fortune and lottery winnings. OK, so maybe they’re not saying exactly that, but you’ll certainly get to live in a luxurious home without an IKEA fitting to be seen. You get lots of material and framing options, and all for the…cough…bargain starting price of £497.00 and upwards.  3Dtional- Inspired by the first TV…

Happy Ball – making pets stronger, having more energy

Happy Ball apparently makes pets more relaxed, while ‘clearing and improving mind‘. Not sure how the retailers have that inner knowledge of Fido’s mental state, but we absolutely completely believe their spiel. Totally. That’s why we’re going to send over the $145.00 immediately –  and maybe purchase something worryingly called a Neutralizer, which is part of the happy pet kit. We love technology, we do.  Happy Ball is making our Pets stronger, having more energy, more relaxed, clearing and improving mind and focus as…

WhoCrashed – freeware tells you exactly what just crashed your computer

WhoCrashed is a totally irrelevant freeware program which tells you what Windows component just crashed your computer. It’s irrelevant because, as we all know, Windows computers never crash. As don’t Apple Macs. Anyhoo, that said…ahem…the useful thing about this prog is the fact that it should help pinpoint the actual dodgy driver or whatever that caused the blue screen/reboot of death, thus perhaps helping you to locate an update and stop any future reoccurrences. The home version is free and…
