Are E-Cigarettes The Future of Smoking?

Are E-Cigarettes The Future of Smoking - Featured

July 1st 2007 was a date that most smokers around England remember well. It was the date that the smoking ban was enforced, whereby you could not smoke in pubs, clubs, and in any indoor or enclosed work places.

For long-term smokers, this was a major time. With designated smoking shelters being constructed outdoors, it was great for the summer periods but awful in the Winter. Let’s face it, living in the UK, we don’t really see the best weather in Summertime.

Review: Kingston DataTraveler microDuo – A Dual Interface USB Memory Stick

Kingston DataTraveler microDuo - featured

Kingston is a recognised name in memory products, so I’m always interested when they release a new product, particularly one that is different from traditional ones.

The DataTraveler microDuo is exactly that, a traditional USB memory stick, but one that supports both a regular USB connection and a microUSB connector typically found on Android smartphones and tablets.

For many the original Amazon Kindle is still the best eBook reader on the market, forgoing all the distractions of it’s more feature rich bog brothers, the Kindle Fire HDX (from £199), and Kindle Fire HD (from £119), to give the best reading experience and stellar battery life.

eBay Introduces Collections – A Way To Group Your Favourite Products Together

ebay new collections featured

eBay has introduced its new Collections feature, a way of grouping together sets or themes of items that you love or want to share with friends.

Being a frequent eBay user, I thought I’d give the new feature a go, and create a range of collections of my own.

What use are Collections?

Collections, as already mentioned, are simply groups of things you love on eBay. You put them together, comment on them, and share them with your friends and the eBay community. You can put together a Collection to plan your new kitchen, accessorise your wardrobe, or simply group all your favourite gadgets together.

You can then open that Collection up so others can take a look, comment on the things you’ve added, and maybe even start a discussion on why you’ve picked one particular thing ahead of another.

My Collections

I put together a range of collections on my eBay page, from toys to speakers to funky USB gadgets! My favourite collection is of things for our impending new baby, and I found a great range of gadgets that will help us look after, entertain and keep our new baby girl safe.

Of course the tech obsessive inside me had to put together a collection of personal fitness tracking electronics, something that will become more important as I have less time to exercise and need to make sure I stay healthy. Devices that track your activity throughout the day, heart rate, and even the Nike Fuel band that alerts you when you’ve been idle too long are all a fantastic help in staying fit.

So go ahead and give the new eBay Collection features a go yourself, if nothing else it will give you more reason to browse around eBay searching for bargains like I did!
