You know the scene. The phone rings and that computationally challenged friend / relative / coworker is in trouble. They’ve bought something, installed it and now the screen is asking them all kinds of funny questions. They clicked “yes” to something and all kinds of strange things are happening. Oh, and they’re 1/2 hours drive away and they have something urgent to do tomorrow and could you please help them …

5 TFTs

I’ve had a dual TFT set-up for quite a while and couldn’t work without it. I will upgrade to triple TFTs at some point in the future once funds allow. That is until I saw these 5 TFT models, they make my dual TFTs look like something out of the dark ages. Just imagine the sheer amount of information you could display on that desktop (though you may need binoculars …

Biometric door lock

I’ve been looking at devices around the home recently and I stumbled upon these biometric door locks. The concept is not new of course but it’s only in the last few years that they’ve been available as a plug and play (drill and play?) package for home installations. I’ve seen a few different models and as I was looking at the specs I noticed one glaring fact – the cheap …

by Al - on October 1, 2005

I remember reporting on this cool clock last month but with me being based in the UK I could only get one by importing it from the States (ThinkGeek to be precise). I was pleased to find today that it is now being stocked and sold over here by Firebox so my credit card is out and I’ll report back here if it’s as cool as the pictures look.

Pumpkin Carving Kit

Pumpkin Carving Kit

This may not be anything new to our friends across the pond but in the UK when it comes to pumpkin carving we normally just use a marker pen and the sharpest knife we’re allowed to use from the kitchen. This means that the majority of our carved pumpkins are pretty amateurish compared to those you see on the teen horror movies. However thanks to the Pumpkin Carving Kit things …

NukAlert Radiation Alarm (keyring)

by Al - on September 30, 2005

Nuke Keyring

There must be a geiger counter craze going on at the moment. Following on from the geiger counter watch we reported on a few days a go you can now buy a Radiation detection device that can be attached to a set of keys, otherwise known as a keyring. The keyring chirps like a proper geiger counter (remember them from school) when radiation levels above the norm, with the frequency …
