TrickleStar Motion Sensor PowerStrip – even if you forget, your TV will be turned off when you leave a room
Ever walked out of the room and just left the TV on? Or a game system running? You probably leave your computer on all the time. It’s ok because they go into sleep or rest mode, right? Wrong. They’re still drawing and, since you’re not using them, wasting energy. The TrickleStar Motion Sensor PowerStrip will help you conserve power by shutting things off once you’ve left the room.
Online privacy is a big deal. With all the activity we do through our computers, there are more opportunities for crooks to steal your information and gain access to your life. Password protection helps but you can take it one step further with the Eye Scanning Password Authenticator.
Computer monitors aren’t always at the right height for usage. Depending on where the windows in your office are and what your chair is doing, you may find yourself struggling to see through glare or keep your body at a comfortable angle. Try out the Satechi Premium Aluminum Monitor Stand, a better alternative for the stack of phonebooks to hold up your screen.
Cats are either really jerky or just really clingy. It’s hard to tell but either way, they can and will walk all over your keyboard. It’s not cute when they’re sending emails to your boss. PawSense is software to help you with your feline problem.
I love DIY project kits! I love them even more when they encourage kids to learn more about electronics than just how to turn them on. The Kano computer is a DIY computer that’s designed to help children learn how to build and code.
If you’re not a computer person, the inside of your tower is probably a dust filled mess. Really, open it up and check it out if you’ve never done so. It’s gross in there. If you are computer person, you know that your tower turns into this and invest in canned air. The O2 Hurricane Special Edition is the last can of air you’ll need.
Computer mouses (that’s the correct plural form, I checked) are bulky. They don’t really slide into the laptop bag as well as, well the laptop. But using a track pad can be sort of lame. The Recon Wireless Folding Mouse is a mouse that travels flat to save space.
The Raspberry Pi is one of the most versatile computers with the cutest name, and people are using the ultra low price device to make all sorts of cool stuff, including tiny robots and other unusual things. Something about this tiny little guy just breeds innovation. But if you’re only a casual user of technology trying to break into more advanced electronics, it can all seem a bit intimidating. Enter the Pi-Top, a DIY laptop based around the Raspberry Pi.
I hate cluttered cords. They look messy, completely ruining the illusion of order I’m trying to convey in my office. They get tangled at my feet and eventually become strange hybrid webs of cat hair. The world under my desk is a hostile place. With the Bluelounge Soba Cable Director, the days of unruly cords are over.
Skulls are very useful things. Not only do they look good with candles and cats, but you can also learn what goes where in an anatomical sense. They also look awesome hodling up a face and do a pretty good job of protecting our brain-meats. Usually their use is limited to a) protection of brain and b) decoration for Halloween. This Skull USB Hub though helps you move data via USB, not neurons.
Let’s be honest with one another, we eat at our keyboards. It’s OK to admit it. The problem is that keyboards are notoriously hard to clean. It skeeves me out to think what grossness lurks beneath the keys as I type this. Enter the SlimTouch 222 Antimicrobial Waterproof Flex Keyboard.

We don’t enjoy platform wars. What computer or phone or car you use is pretty irrelevant really. Just as long as it delivers value to your life and serves you reliably then that’s fine, right? We don’t see why people have to get so angry about this feature or that feature, or why my version is better than yours. Which is why we’re pleased to see that there’s a nice new tool to make it easy to move your data from PC…
Well that didn’t take long.
