Gadgettes 185: The Keeping Our Lids on Tight Episode (podcast)

After years and years of failed coffee mugs, we decide to air out the dirt on the ones that suck... and possibly even cover a few things that could be considered "technology" too.

Ask a Gadgette
Hi!

My mother’s 40th birthday is upcoming soon and I want to give her something special this year. She’s not really a tech person and only uses her computer for web browsing, email and basic word processing. She has been complaining lately how slow it is (she has a 4-year-old laptop). She also reads a lot of books.

I’m considering getting her an iPad. Is this a good idea? Are there any other gadgets you could think of, that could replace the main functions of a laptop and are also easy to use? Please note that since I’m 14, my funds are limited to around US$600.

Keep up the great work,
Jakub from Australia

Dear luckiest guy in the world, or Jason, as you are sometimes called…

How is it you have managed to land the best gig on the planet, and how
can i be more like you? Molly & Kelly are just so darn wonderful. Full
of wonder. And full of win. And you get paid too? Double score.

I salute you sir. You are a stud.

Humbly yours,
Dave in NY


In reflection of episode 183, I think you have stumbled onto the next social media application for a mobile phone. It's the combination of four square location based services and farting. Now you can navigate the office area free of air pollution with GPS coordinate and Google Map precision. Stop using that finger to pull and start steering clear using the touchscreen.

Kind regards,
Alan
