Most households do a fair bit of DIY around the place, from measuring windows to planning a patio or building a veranda. And here I'm just listing a couple of things that are happening in my household right now.

We don't realise how much we depend on electricity until the lights go out. And if you happen to be in the middle of an urgent task that you need to finish (or save) when the electrons stop flowing in your business, you will praise the day you invested in an Uninterruptible Power Supply or UPS.
Today we'll have a close look at the Socomec NETYS PR RT solution that will do more than provide backup power.
It's been a busy week at Dyson HQ - Not content with their announcement of their new Dyson Cool fans, Dyson has finally decided to enter the "robot" vacuum segment with the Dyson 360 Eye robot.
While pricing and release date are still unknown, we hope to follow up our upcoming DC65 review with this automated sucker.
Until then, you take a look at Dyson's 360 Eye robot preview site.
While many still use optical media, the current trend is to ditch the discs and begin enjoying the benefits of instant access hard drive storage solutions. And if you haven't yet made the transition, Synology's DS415play with on-demand transcoding might just be the device that tips the scale.
