Prusa i3 Pro B 3D Printer

It’s been a looooong time since I’ve posted. I’m sorry. I kind of fell away from it. You know how it is – real life gets in the way sometimes.

Just recently, I’ve been thinking ahead to Christmas and what I might buy myself as a present. I’ve been going between a new Xbox One S or a 3D printer. Continue reading

HidrateSpark is Coming!

Well, for some people, HidrateSpark is already here. Not for me though. Not yet.

HidrateSpark is the world’s first smart water bottle. I first backed it over a year ago on Kickstarter. I was immediately won over by the really sincere introduction video from their team and was one of the first 100 or so to back them. Continue reading

Finally Here!

After seven weeks, my Apple Watch has finally arrived. Its been a long wait. I’ve had various conversations with Apple employees about arrival dates and payment screw-ups. I’ve had chats with colleagues and family members who have all received theirs. For a while there, it seemed as if I was the only one not to have theirs. The amount of time I’ve spent checking the Apple Store app for delivery status is completely ridiculous. Its almost as if I don’t have a full time job and a family to feed. Continue reading

Watching and Waiting…

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a little bit about the fact that I had ordered an Apple Watch. Ever since I placed that order, I’ve done a few things. I’ve backed a couple of Kickstarter projects, I’ve been accepted as a beta tester for a smart home gadget, I’ve continued to enjoy being a husband and father, and I’ve been devouring all the Apple Watch info I can possibly get my hands on.

Hotting Up With Hive

I love gadgets, I’m lazy, and I live in Scotland, where it’s cold. All the time. So, if there was a gadget which could keep me warm while also encouraging my laziness, you’d think I’d be on board with it, wouldn’t you? If you answered ‘yes’, then you’d be correct! Although it has been available since 2013, I’ve only recently decided to get Hive by British Gas.

Qmote Kicks Off!

I’ve never really done the crowdfunding thing before, but a couple of months ago I fancied the idea of getting a new toy to play with. I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted, but I knew I wanted it to be cool and quirky. Where do you find cool and quirky gadgets? Kickstarter, of course! Continue reading

I Caved…

So, ever since Apple announced the Apple Watch last September, I’ve pretty much thought it was a pointless waste of time. “I have a watch..”, “I already get my email on my phone…”, “The display’s too small to do anything useful…”. Continue reading

Go(Pro) be a HERO

In February, I was returning from an amazing family holiday to the Caribbean. It was amazing up until the point of my British Airways flight being wildly delayed. Without going into the logistics of where and how I was delayed, lets just say I was stuck at London Gatwick for over 8 hours. Continue reading

I finally picked up my EE Power Bar today. If you’re one of the thousands of EE, Orange or T-Mobile customers who registered to get one, you may know what I mean when I say ‘finally’. On the face of it, this seems like a really good deal. You send a text message (which costs you 35p) to EE, they send you back a code which you take into any EE store to redeem your Power Bar. You can then use it to charge your phone on the go. Once it’s run out of juice, you can either recharge it using your phone’s charger, or you can take it into any EE store and swap it for another fully charged one. Continue reading
