We can’t always pick the place where we work, sometimes we have to put up with stuff. Like dark dungeons with no light, open plan with no privacy or a desk right next to the restroom if we’ve annoyed someone on the top floor. We’re even more subject to the environment, depending on how good or bad our building’s air-conditioning system is.Read More

We’re all learning more every day about how to collaborate online. From file sharing tools like Dropbox to full blown collaboration software like Google Docs, we’re becoming a sharing, caring networked world. The point is, that’s what networks are for, and the Internet is after all just one giant collection of computers, right?
Ever wondered what tool NASA used to wash the astronaut’s undies after a long stretch in space? Well surely it wasn’t this pair of scruffy looking washing machines, or was it? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to bid on them, because these two magnificent NASA washers are up for auction for the next four days, with a starting bid of $25.00.
It has happened once again. You and a bunch of your friends have gone on a trip together to “get away from it all” and have found that you are stuck with only one laptop that doesn’t have enough USB ports. It almost seems funny how dependent we are on our smartphones, tablets, and MP3 players, but you can watch a fun trip turn ugly if geeks don’t have their gear charged. We are capable of going without for an…
There aren’t near as many jobs that require us to work in the great outdoors anymore. Sadly, many of us are stuck behind desks and monitors, far from the sunshine and physical activity that our bodies ache for. Living such a sedentary lifestyle is not good for our health, and the WeBike is here to change all that.
Dogs are rather curious creatures by nature. They love to stick their heads out of car windows, (mainly to wag their tongues in the wind) so they can see the world around them without the confines of the car, and poke their noses into all sorts of mischief just to see what’s going on. Being fenced into the backyard is then likely some sort of torture for our canine friends.

There’s no question that eBook readers are here to stay. The mighty Amazon alone is selling around 5 million of them a year, and they’ve publicly stated that ebooks are now the biggest selling book format jumping off their virtual shelves. It’s not hard to see why. The convenience of carrying around a literal library of titles wherever you travel is really compelling, and despite what purists may say, reading on a screen can be every bit as enjoyable as paper.
If you and your friends own motorcycles and like to ride out together on occasion, you know that communication is a problem. You can’t really take a call with a helmet on, and yelling at each other over the sounds of your engines can be a little rough on your vocal chords. Obviously the best way to solve this issue is by placing a communication device within your helmet, and the Cardo Scala Rider G9 is here to do just…
No matter where you live, whether it’s a small apartment or a luxuriously appointed McMansion, you’re going to be faced with dealing with stuff. Y’know, the kind of things that you forget about until it’s too late. Maintenance schedules, repair manuals, an inventory of your gadgets for insurance purposes, even product receipts to keep track of warranties. It’s all a necessary part of life, but up till now this sort of stuff has been really hard to manage unless you’re some…
It’s a dog eat dog world out there, and if you’re not prepared to go the distance, you’ll be left behind. Make no mistake, there are people who won’t give you the time of day unless your facial attributes are all tickety-boo, which means the next job interview you attend could be your downfall. Ready to fight back? Good, because we’ve got something you need. Oh yes.

This version has more color, more depth, more scary realisations that a transistor gate is smaller than a red blood cell. Freaky.

Some of us have a bit of paranoia regarding burglars coming into the house at night. The thought of someone creeping into your room while you’re fast asleep is quite unsettling, and the only way to know if it’s happening or not is by filming your room at night. The only problem with that, is that most people nowadays know that a little red dot of light means that there is a recording device in their midst.
It’s not a bad thing to be used to comfort. We wear comfy clothes, sleep in plush beds, and sit in giant squishy office chairs, and it is exactly how we want things to be. The only problem is that when we go outside of our luxurious home, we are stuck dealing with fold out chairs and benches. It can be a little difficult to enjoy nature if you have to keep shifting around all the time.
