Perfect birthday present


Yesterday I got amazing present on my birthday. My dearest wife Maria gave me a Nokia E65! That’s cool smartphone with the latest Symbian OS, WiFi and VoIP. I just started to discover the phone. Because it’s radically different than my old Sony Ericsson K700i. Anyway, I’m really happy to have such gadget and I hope it help me to organize my work better 🙂

Recycle bin for digital content


TEMPO is stylish and useful gadget for all who use computer. We all know that all deleted files are moved to the virtual recycle bin which actually a special directory in your OS. So, there is a way to recover data deleted by mistake. If you don’t clean your trash of course. TEMPO offers safer way to store your deleted stuff. Actually, it’s an external storage (about 250Gb) which looks like a little recycling bin. It communicates with your PC via Bluetooth to backup all deleted files. Series colored LEDs on the side of the device indicates how full the “bin” is. There is an only one big disadvantage of TEMPO – it supports Windows and Mac only. So, Linux geeks should be careful when they delete something from the HDD 😉

Hidden Camera Spy Clock

Hidden Camera Spy Clock
Now you can watch easily how your babysitter makes her/his work. With a Hidden Camera Spy Clock it can be done very effective. It comes with a full color camera that transmits signals to a remote receiver for real-time recording. The price of the Hidden Camera Spy Clock is $64.00 which is good for this kind of gadgets. But personally, I’d prefer IP cameras. They are much handy and power. And possibly the babysitter should know about supervision.

Organize devices on the desk

After we moved to the new flat I decided to put my computer devices more efficient on the my small desk. I followed by brief guide of Van Mardian and mounted an ADSL modem and WiFi router under my desk. I don’t have so much devices which can be mount such manner but I got some free space on the desk. The next step is to mount power extender there as well.

Thanks to Lifehacker for a good point.

Amusing application of Nokia770


Nokia770 is the best Nokia’s product. It might be used in different manner. For example, as a head of Puppybot:

This latest bot that we’ve spotted combines the utility of a Nokia 770 Internet Tablet with the personality (and body) of a robot puppy dog. Apparently you can control its movements by using another tablet, and it’ll even update its facial expressions to reflect whatever it’s doing at that moment. No word on if you can launch Google Talk while it’s in dog mode or if you’d just be too saddened by those digital puppy eyes to carry on a decent conversation. Either way, peep the video on the flip side for the full effect.
