Some phrases I have always wanted to say and possibly never will. “Follow that taxi” (to a stunned NY cabbie whose cab I have just entered in by shouldering out an overweight businessman) “Tell the Koreans it’s 4 billion or there’s no deal” (to be delivered into a mobile phone on a crowded train) “I’ll just nip off and make some ice lollies” Alright, so I’ve never actually harboured a life long dream of saying the last one, but the Zoku quick pop maker still sounds like a good idea. They look amazingly cool (sorry...

Do you like cycling? Would you like to occasionally take a rest from pedalling and let the bike take the strain? Are you environmentally friendly? Let’s read on and see if you are a candidate for the Gocycle electric bike. Design It’s no Sinclair C5, but if you are the shy, retiring type who doesn’t like to turn heads then you might prefer to avoid this attention-grabber. The white trim, 20 inch wheels and sporty design make it an attractive, one off design. It looks like a bike crossed with an ipod, the lines are curved but sleek...

So you want a smartphone and you would like to see how the Samsung Galaxy S shapes up against the competition? Well, let’s have a look at it then. Design This phone has a lovely screen; big, clear and extremely detailed. It really is the best feature of the model and more than makes up for a slightly insipid casing and button design. It weighs not much more than 100 grams. The Samsung Galaxy S is wafer thin (a hair’s breadth thicker than the current iPhone) and this, combined with the amazing screen display, makes it a great visual...

Apple Jam have made some nifty decals in the past and these PAC man themed removable stickers allow you to combine retro with ultra modern. The decals by Moscow are styled with the classic game of packman in mind with dots to eat all leading to the famous apple, which on the original game was worth a not to shabby 700 points. You also get the lives and other game stickers to make the back of your iPad look like a more authentic game. It’s probably worth mentioning that the stickers can be applied to any device so if you fancy sticking...

Do you find it difficult to get to sleep at night? If counting sheep, listening to low volume music and drinking a cup of hot milk don’t do it for you then you might want to try the Lightsleeper. Design A stylish, white lamp type of modern design means that it will look quite nice on your bedside table. It is small enough to be unobtrusive as well and may even prove a talking point should visitors frequent your boudoir – should you need it. Notable Specifications You can plug into your favourite wall socket or use AAA batteries....

We’ve all been there. Rummaging a through a stack of cheap, tacky postcards with images of the Eiffel Tower / paella / Tower Bridge etc. Quite often the problem with these generic postcards is that the image is far removed from what you are actually doing. Not any more, jetsetters. A new, personalised postcard service has been launched by our internet neighbours at eCards.co.uk. Now you can send pictures which genuinely reflect the fun / adventure /debauchery which you are having as you cut a swath through foreign lands.  How does...

Conspiracy for Good is what is apparently known as an augmented reality drama. Basically, in slightly plainer English, what this entails is the creation of a virtual drama that is set online and in various forms of media, but also encourages active participation from players in the real world. The whole drama unfolds before the eyes of the player and Nokia has teamed up with Heroes creator Tim Kring so you can be fairly certain that it’s going to be major. Nokia are sponsoring the whole affair although it isn’t strictly necessary...

Those who like their machines and gadgets to be different from all the rest may be tempted by the soon to be released Halo Reach limited edition version of the slim Xbox 360. It comes out of the shadows on the 14th September and our US friends will need to stump up 400 bucks to be able to enjoy its futuristic controller, metallic look and a copy of said game. The UK price has yet to be revealed, although an online currency conversion reveals 400 bucks to be around 260 pounds . For your money you get the usual Wi-fi and 250GB. The Comic-Con...

They say that good things come in threes. Whether you consider three snippets of Facebook related information to be good probably depends upon whether you are a fan of the “social networking phenomenon” (copyright:anyone who has ever written an article about Facebook). Anyway, let’s get on with the show. Facebook news shocker#1. After around 6 years of life, the social netwo..etc called Facebook has passed the 500 million users mark. That’s twice the population of Indonesia. As the world’s population is estimated...
