Cable Drop

Cable Drops are a very unique and innovative but very simple idea. If like me you tend to have several cables for different devices hanging around your desk you will find they drop down the back and you lose them. Cable Drops will solve this and will hold your wires and cables in place so you won’t have to scramble on the floor to find them each time you need to charge your phone or iPod.

Mini Freeview Digital TV and Media Player

When we first heard about this “TV tablet”, we got extremely excited with ideas about what exactly a TV tablet could do, flew around the office. We were slightly embarrassed when we realized that this was infact a media player and not a pill but our interest was still peaked. Portable media players are getting pretty common so to shake up this tired genre these clever bods have decided to shoe-horn a Digital TV receiver into the tiny 10.5 x 7.5 x 1.8 cm unit. “Portable tellies have been around since the 90s so that is not to impressive either” we thought.
