If I lost or damaged my phone 15 years ago, the biggest inconvenience would be gathering up all my lost contacts off my mates and shelling out for a new Motorola Razr. These days, as much as I hate to admit it, my phone is my life, like an external brain. If I lost it, I would lose not just my contacts, but photos, videos, music, messages, documents and a calendar, essentially rendering me a functionless human being.

With the summer upon us there is no excuse not to peel your backside of the sofa, switch off the games console and step out into the sun. God it’s bright out there, but the hair loss from lack of vitamin D just isn’t worth it! Don’t forget to smother your pasty skin in sun cream if it’s the first time you have been out this year.
With so many power-banks on the market now it’s easy to forget that not everything runs off a built-in rechargeable, like the ones we have in our phones and tablets. The GP Charge AnyWay is here to revive those devices that take AA or AAA batteries: games consoles controllers, remotes, external camera flashes or the computer mouse for example.
Our furry friends can bring us the most joy in life, but equally leave you running around in your dressing gown with a torch and bag of treats at 3 am when they go missing. If your dog escapes they don’t think about the worry and panic they cause you, but simply see it as an opportunity to run around like a loon and sniff everything within a 2-mile radius.
Gone are the days when it was simply enough to flick and switch to see the stuff in your room, now you can have more control than ever before over your lighting with smart bulbs. The Eufy Lumos Smart Bulb lets you adjust your lighting setting wherever you are via any internet connection. This bulb produces a soft white (2700K) light that illuminates with the brightness of 60W equivalent incandescent but only uses 9W of power, potentially saving you over 80% of you lighting costs.
