Just love this new project on Kickstarter for a neat little tablet stand. In it's travel state it's no bigger than an iPhone, but will expand out with a little flick to fit pretty much any tablet that is currently available on the market.
It has multiple angles it can be set at and rubberised feet so it doesn't slip around - ingenious bit of kit.
Go and back it now on Kickstarter at this link.Add a comment

IFTTT is a web service that I use a lot and in fact often determines whether other gadgets are worth purchasing or not, such is it's capabilities!
The guys at IFTTT say it's supposed to be pronounced IFT as in GIFT, but most users affectionately tend to call it IF TUH TUH TUH... But why is it called this anyway? Quite simply it's because it's named after what it does - IF This Then That. So if this happens then go off and do that.Add a comment

Microsoft have just released Project Siena, which looks like Microsoft's first big push to encourage app development for Windows 8 and RT.
Siena is targeted at “business experts, business analysts, consultants and other app imagineers”, to create apps that work “well with corporate and web data and media content: SharePoint lists, Excel and Azure tables, RSS feeds and the gamut of RESTful services”.Add a comment

Another recent acquisition was the WeMo switch from Belkin. In essence this switch allows you to turn on or off anything plugged into it from anywhere in the world.
There is a free app available for Google or Apple devices on which you can set up various timebased rules to switch the device on or off. There is of course an override switch on the device itself, so that if you really feel the need to get up and turn it off manually then you can do that as well…Add a comment
