iPad’s first ad

March 8, 2010

Yeah I don’t really buy into the hype either, but as it’s THE gadget of 2010 so far I suppose it should be included here at the Fold. First aired during the 2010 Oscars, try watching this Youtube vid on one… oh. Ah well, never mind, I’ll send it you on a USB stick… oh.

Goddamn you Steve.

The 24 Days of Christmas – Day 19

December 20, 2009

As we all know, Christmas is fast approaching and as we all also know, many of you will be struggling to think of interesting gift ideas for your nearest and dearest. ‘What shall we buy to show our love?!’ we hear you cry. Well, fear not, for we at the Fold know that sometimes, thinking beyond the usual DVD boxsets/smellies/Xbox games can be a little difficult, and so over the course of December we endeavour to bring you a new gift idea each day on the run-up to Christmas, totalling 24, and with each one we shall also bring you an accompanying song that somehow represents the gift in some way. ‘Gift ideas and related entertainment?!’ we hear you now crying! ‘How on Earth do they manage it?!’

Day #19 – Key Fob Camera

Still looking for that perfect gift for an aspiring spy? Me neither, but the Key Fob camera looks like a great little device to document those petty festive squabbles that start once Auntie’s Bailey’s dries up. Watch their faces drop as you play back footage on boxing day. There you have it, apparently mince pies did contain mince – now get the fuck out the house. See you next year!

Here’s the description.

Go undercover and record vital video evidence with this compact Key Fob Video Camera. Designed to look like a car remote control key fob this cunningly concealed camera can record high quality video and audio footage wherever and whenever you need it. The Camera has 2GB of internal memory so there is no need for fiddly memory cards, and is easily downloaded to your PC via USB.
This little camera blends in beautifully, just attach it to a set of keys and no one would ever be any the wiser as to your covert operation. The Key Fob Video Camera is powered by an internal battery that is charged via USB. Helpfully you can also set up a timestamp to appear on recorded footage so you know exactly when everything took place.

The 24 Days of Christmas – Day 14

Day #14 – Freeloader Pro

Technology as we all know is becoming more and more advanced and subsequently, more taxing on the battery life. There’s nothing worse (okay, famine) than having that classic tune fade into obscurity just before the drop – leaving you bouncing around aimlessly like a deaf chimp. Well never again! Grab the Freeloader Pro, attach the relevant adapter and look for the sun.

Here is a little overview:

Freeloader Pro is the ultimate solar charger capable of powering virtually every electrical device, anywhere in the world, whether on a beach, a mountain, jungle or the Polar ice cap.

Freeloader Pro uses its high power solar panels or USB (cable supplied) to quickly charge its internal battery (7 – 9 hours in sunny conditions). Once fully charged Freeloader Pro is capable of delivering enough power to give a mobile phone 70 hours of standby time, 5000 page turns on an eBook or a 100% full charge for a digital camera battery.

Also by switching its Multi voltage switch to “9.5v” Freeloader Pro is capable of charging power hungry, high voltage devices such as MP4 players, portable DVD players and SLR camera batteries.
The metallic push button “Power Halo” indicates how much power is in Freeloader Pro’s battery.

Made in tough aluminium and finished in a stylish “piano” black, Freeloader Pro is the perfect companion for adventure travellers, journalists, explorers, expeditions, the armed forces and anyone who demands the best!

For those intrigued; you can pick it up right here.

And for your viewing pleasure today, Missy, Nicole Wray and Mc Solaar. Remember this one? Zig Zag Zig Zag….

Day #11 – Dane-Elec Z-Pen

zpen

I actually own one of these. I would say it would be very useful for someone who has legible penmanship. Alas, not this lefty.

This bulky little pen may not look that impressive at first glance, but it has some very serious credentials. Still confused – here’s what it does:

The Zpen by Dane-Elec is composed of a pen and a receiver.

It will allow you to:

WRITE with the pen, on any kind of paper
(with the receiver on top of your page)

DOWNLOAD your handwritten notes on your PC
and view them on screen.

FIND keywords back on your handwritten notes.

CONVERT your handwritten notes in digital text,
to use it on your standard word processing.

That’s right, it converts your notes into text format. A perfect gift for the apathetic student or gadget obsessed sibling.

At 65 quid it’s a reasonable sum. Pick one up here.

The chosen song speaks for itself. Were pretty limited when it comes to songs about pens, but the Beatle’s gave it a bloody good go.
