I have to say that for ages I was not overly convinced about the Apple iPad. I had a HP tablet PC, the tc1100 about 6 years ago, whilst I was working in an agency environment and the clients thought it was cool and it worked well for taking notes and demonstrating ideas/presentations and personally I loved the thing. I guess thats why the iPad didn’t grab me, it’s not anything new.

If you ever need storage on the go for your iPhone, iPad, Camera or any device with Wi-Fi then the AirStash™ from Wearable Inc is a must have gadget!
From the AirStash™ site:
“AirStash stores your movies, music, photos, and documents and wirelessly shares them with your phone, media player, netbook, tablet, computer, and more. Use AirStash like a USB flash drive to drag & drop the files you want to your SD card while charging the built-in lithium polymer battery, then unplug & play on all of your browser-enabled WiFi devices*.
All you need to do is insert a SD card (bought separately), which can be upto 32GB in size and there you have it a portable wireless storage server on the go! You can even stream video and music apparently. The cost? A mere $99. UNFORTUNATELY it’s US/Canada ONLY. Come on Wearable Inc sort it out!

HTC has officially thrown the cover off its Touch Pro today — the QWERTY slider sibling of the recently-unveiled Touch Diamond — which should cover the bases for those who loved the Diamond’s keen looks but decided they’d go our of their gourds without a full set of physical keys at their disposal. Under that glossy black shell lies WiFi, HSPA with a solid 7.2Mbps on the downstream, Bluetooth, 2.8-inch VGA display, Windows Mobile 6.1 featuring HTC’s TouchFLO 3D interface, a 3.2 megapixel camera, a half gig of ROM, and 288MB of RAM. It’s not going to win any “world’s thinnest” records with an 18.05mm waistline, but those five rows of textual healing don’t come without a price. The first batch of devices will be Europe-bound in “late summer” with 900 / 2100MHz 3G alongside the quadband GSM and EDGE; North and Latin American versions are promised for later in the year.

That’s what Stephen Reed’s new ceramic cup delivers. Inspired by a computer heat sink the raised ridges insulate your fingers from the hot beverage by air. I don’t think its available for consumer purchase yet but hopefully somebody can pick it up and get it manufactured as I’m sure there’s quite a market for this.
