Gadgets replace PCs

Gadgets replace PCs? PCs have been the most used gadget of the last 10 years , so much so that you would not even call your home PC a gadget. With the rise of the internet powered by increasingly fast broadband access you can do almost anything via your PC play games, date, chat, shop, work, show your holiday snaps, give your opinion, give/get advice, pay your bills and a million other things.

However with new handheld technology via your MP3 player and phone you can do all these things on the move with the same reliability and speed. Japan has seen a fall in PC sales since the rise of these gadgets and the Japanese know a thing or two about technology!

With small devices that can do everything you want without taking up space in your home this is only going one way. Also, if you can connect your MP3 player to your stereo speakers and TV screen at home there may not be a need for a stereo at all. The final stage will be a tiny hand held device that functions as a PC, phone, music player, DVD player, games console, virtual pet and remote control fo your house.

Will gadgets replace PCs completely? The trend for smaller and more powerful hand held devices will be sure to make this happen eventually. The Apple iPhone is released in the UK very soon and will be another stpe forward

Overcharging Gadgets

Research from Uswitch has revealed that we waste £1.9 Billion each year on overcharging gadgets! We dont read instruction manuals and leave MP3 players, phones and games consoles charging overnight and this adds to the energy shortage we are experiencing.

Overcharging gadgets also ruins batteries, shortening the lifetime of re-chargeable batteries and occasionally being a fire hazard…

Many gadget users also admit to ‘comfort charging’ which is when we knowingly overcharge an item just so it is fully charged when we need it.

So to prevent you overcharging gadgets and electrical items we recommend you check the instruction manual, keep an eye on the item and dont leave it charging overnight unless you are sure that the item requires that long.

If you have had to pay for a replacement charger you will realise the cost of overcharging gadgets!!


Every year the ‘DigitalLife’ trade show allows gadget fans in the US to see what items will be available in the next few months. Communications are of course at the center of whats going on at DigitalLife, with new technology making international calls cheaper than ever!

The MagicJack comes with its own phone number and gives you cheap phone calls via your PC. Just email someone your MagicJack number across the other side of the globe an hey presto cheap calls!!! There is also Wi-Fi enabled messaging device called the Zipit 2. With unlimited texts, free calls and great parental controls this is sure to cut your phone bill!

The Looj is a robotic gutter cleaner that makes cleaning out the gutters simple and fun. Just put the device ion a watch it go!
