Here's a geeky but practical idea, especially if you tend to forget to carry yourmains power adaptor for your amobile phone or tablet USB charger. This USB portmains power adaptor goes into power outlets and has two USB outlets, and best of all you can still use the regular 240-volt power while it is plugged in – great for hotel rooms where power outlets can be sparse. It's a pretty handy device for around $20.

STAR APP


To be useful, a phone or tablet app has to really take advantage of the portability offered by the device. And we love it if it works across many flavours of handsets too, as does Scanbizcards. You merely take a photo of the business card, then tap the image on the screen to call the number. Of course, the app does more than that, such as recognise the name, store the contact data, group your contacts, connect via LinkedIn, export to Excel and loads more. Watch demo videos at www.scanbizcards.com. While not necessarily a similar productivity


enhancer, Skype is now available for Android, iPhone and Windows devices as well as Black- berry. The phone service uses data or Wi-Fi for conversations, which means you can call other Skype users worldwide free of charge if you are in a free Wi-Fi area. Some phones also support video calls. www.skype.com.
