Ringbow wants to change the way you play mobile games

Whenever you have a little bit of free time, you might find yourself playing a mobile game. There’s nothing wrong with this of course (assuming you’re getting all of your other work done), but there is a very specific way to play these type of games. Most of the time, you have to have at least two fingers on the screen to control a characters movements, and be able to attack.

Incred-a-Brew provides a perfect cup of coffee

Having had some experience with the making and drinking of coffee, I can assure you that there are several ways to prepare this kind of drink. Each method has its own rhyme and reason, and is utilized based on the user’s preferences. We’ve taken a look at some fancy espresso machines in the past, but regular coffee is a whole other ordeal.

Tunlr.net lets you stream and watch US and UK shows from anywhere in the world

There’s been a fair amount of technology thrown at the problem of how to watch content on sites like Hulu.com from outside the US over the years (and vice versa re UK shows from the US). So far the solutions have tended to be VPN style, where you install some software, fire it up and then ‘tunnel’ your way into the North American continent like some digital mole. The advantage of these fixes are they’re quick and easy, the disadvantage is you’re going…

Hyper Dog Ball Launcher takes playing “fetch” to new heights

Playing fetch with your pooch can be a bit tiring sometimes. You want to haul back and throw it as hard as possible, as you don’t want your pup to come back in less than two seconds, but you also don’t want to put your shoulder out of socket. Dogs have quite a bit more energy than we do most of the time, so do you overexert yourself trying to wear out your furry friend, or find an alternative way…

Electric Skates lets you clip on, switch on and shoot out

You’ve got to admit one thing, transportation is really going through some big changes right now. The high price of gas, the crowded streets and the proliferation of new technologies is driving a really innovative period in our ability to move from place to place effortlessly. Some of the most interesting stuff we find comes from personal devices like Honda’s UNI-CUB, but there are other examples which are just as interesting.

Alive Video Wallpaper is the first HD live video wallpaper for Android which doesn’t suck [Freeware]

There’s a bunch of live wallpaper apps out there for Android, which typically come with a variety of different features and formats. Some are little more than animated slide-shows, others deliver pitifully low resolution video or stutter badly in operation. But to date there’s been no real ‘practical’ video wallpaper product which didn’t suck up all your phone’s processing power or battery life.

Jimmy Wales sets up petition to stop extradition of British student to the US

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has set up an online petition to stop the extradition of British student Richard O’Dwyer to the US, and it’s something all Internet users really should be aware of. Richard was the founder of the web search engine TVShack.net, which let people search for their favourite television programmes and movies online. He did not directly host any copyrighted material at all. So in this regard his site was doing nothing more than Google does every day! However, a…

MARPAC White Noise Machine will provide a more peaceful night of sleep

Some of us are blessed with ability to fall asleep quickly, and sleep like a log. Others are woken up by every little noise, and have difficulty falling back asleep if the noise continues. Turning on the TV or listening to music are viable ways to drown out exterior sounds, but they are also somewhat distracting. You may end up staying awake because you want to listen to or watch whatever is playing, which defeats the purpose.

Wacom Bamboo Splash lets you express your artistic side

Last year, we saw that Wacom was giving their bamboo tablets a bit of an update. They were the Bamboo Connect, Create, and Capture. While they were all nice pieces of hardware, they might not have had exactly what you were looking for. Many times, these bamboo tablets are used for artistic purposes, and thankfully, Wacom has recently released a newer version that will be all the rage for up and coming artists.

Butter Cutter gives you a perfect pat every time

To preface this little oddity, let us just say that I have a borderline obsession for toast with butter and honey. Those of you who also enjoy this breakfast time favorite will know that using real butter rather than a spread can be quite a pain. You have to have it at the perfect temperature so when your toast pops, you can spread it over the whole piece.
