Just love this new project on Kickstarter for a neat little tablet stand. In it's travel state it's no bigger than an iPhone, but will expand out with a little flick to fit pretty much any tablet that is currently available on the market.

It has multiple angles it can be set at and rubberised feet so it doesn't slip around - ingenious bit of kit.

IFTTT is a web service that I use a lot and in fact often determines whether other gadgets are worth purchasing or not, such is it's capabilities!

The guys at IFTTT say it's supposed to be pronounced IFT as in GIFT, but most users affectionately tend to call it IF TUH TUH TUH... But why is it called this anyway? Quite simply it's because it's named after what it does - IF This Then That. So if this happens then go off and do that.

Microsoft have just released Project Siena, which looks like Microsoft's first big push to encourage app development for Windows 8 and RT.

Siena is targeted at “business experts, business analysts, consultants and other app imagineers”, to create apps that work “well with corporate and web data and media content: SharePoint lists, Excel and Azure tables, RSS feeds and the gamut of RESTful services”.

Another recent acquisition was the WeMo switch from Belkin. In essence this switch allows you to turn on or off anything plugged into it from anywhere in the world.

There is a free app available for Google or Apple devices on which you can set up various timebased rules to switch the device on or off. There is of course an override switch on the device itself, so that if you really feel the need to get up and turn it off manually then you can do that as well…

The chaps over at JoomlArt have created this rather neat infographic about the 10 major new features in the recently released Joomla 3.2.

Recently have become interested in bitcoin's, and will probably write further about it in future posts. However the thought for today is "what the hell is going on with the bitcoin price?!".

My interest started only about three weeks ago, when the price was about £90 for one bitcoin, today it is very likely to hit £180! I thought the route forward might have been bitcoin mining, but I wish I had now bought into the currency a few weeks back and just did a bit of currency trading…

So today sees the release of Joomla 3.2. Whilst this is still a point release, Joomla 3.2 is one of the Joomla foundations largest release ever, because of the sheer number of bug fixes and new features. There have been over 1000 commits made to the code, with 50 different people contributing to the project.

Whilst bug fixes are incredibly important there are some incredible new features. More information is available in the release notes.

My latest bit of kit is the Logitech T650, and I've been so impressed with it I thought I'd better write a short review.

This device is a trackpad intended primarily for Windows 8, but can be used with Windows 7. However the full value of the product comes out when you use it with Windows 8, because of all the other gestures that have been introduced to this version of Microsoft's operating system. Of course Windows 8.1 is supported as well.
