Sometimes simplicity is THE secret sauce for a storage solution.

Regular readers of this site will have seen our previous Drobo reviews – both network and direct attached storage models which we rated very highly for their user friendliness and apparent simplicity. I say “apparent” as the magic to make the Drobos so user friendly is anything but simple.

So today we have a short review of a DAS unit with a gigantic storage capacity: the Drobo 8D.
Eight bays that you can fill up with the highest capacity hard drives you can afford.
Let’s have a look at some of the features.

Logitech M350 Pebble - A Pink Digital Diamond

Read more: Logitech M350 Pebble - A Pink Digital DiamondIt is a running joke between my partner and I, when I randomly send photos of packets of Burger Rings and Cheezels popping the "big" question.

So when the opportunity came along to review the Logitech Pebble M350, I figured I can do it with a rose pink "diamond". Props to my editor Martin who was in on it too.

With thanks to Logitech for their continued support, we get to test drive this "Minimalist. Modern. Silent." wireless mouse.

When I received the email offer to review these buds, I was quite literally entangled in wires from my daily headphones, trying to take a call, listen to a podcast and read my emails..

The opportunity seemed fortuitous and timely.

Voltaire Smart Grinder - Quest to waking up to freshly ground coffee

Read more: Voltaire Smart Grinder - Quest to waking up to freshly ground coffeeThe Voltaire Smart Grinder was a Kickstarter project by Get It Right with a lofty project statement. "Making fresh coffee is as much an art as it is a science. And truly awesome coffee starts with two things: fresh beans and a great grinder. We've taken these two critical elements - fresh beans and consistent grind - and combined them into one amazing machine: Voltaire."

The Voltaire Grinder can be paired with an airtight container (for storage of grounded coffee). Both the grinder and container can become "smart" with the addition of a sensing platform that is design to keep track of how fresh the coffee beans are, and how much there is left in the hopper or past their prime and re-order on your behalf.

So, how did we go?

 

Glow Dreaming - Sleep tight little ones

MiscellaneousWritten by Kevin Cheng on .

Read more: Glow Dreaming - Sleep tight little onesWe have all heard horror stories about babies and children that won't fall asleep, or waking every hour, needed to be held, hugged, breastfed, walked around, rocked in order to etch out a little more zzz. I certainly know how it feels night after night after night, resettling my boys every hour or two, trying to get them to stay asleep and allow me to put them down so I can snatch a few precious minutes myself before my day starts.

Glow Dreaming claims to help children struggling with separation anxiety, self-settling, night terrors, teething, transitioning, delayed sleep, dream feeding, multiple wakes, days sleeps and co sleeping.

Well, I have children at different stages of life, so I took the plunge and bought one.

And of course I just had to share my experience with our DigitalReview readers.

Today we are looking at a few cases as well as the Samsung Duo Charger, courtesy of MobileFun - home of everything you need for your mobile lifestyle.
