Though some lifestyle gurus may claim to subsist on "chemical free" food, such a thing does not exist. Like the entire world around us, food is made up of complex chemical systems, and those systems can be manipulated to make olive oil powders, cocktail spheres, or cheese sauce from any cheese, even the ones that don't melt so well.

You are probably surrounded by more computers than you know what to do with, whether it's the phone in your pocket, the old clunker at home, or the sleek little ultraportable you got from work. And while they are more than enough for everyday tasks, when it comes to real graphics prowess, I'm talking about serious gaming, 3D design, or photo/video editing, most systems don't have the guts -- or the space to accommodate the kind of silicon you'd need to push pixels around.
In the days before Google, a tiny, cryptic ad in the back of a magazine had a lot of potential. The seller might not be able to fully describe their product, but if the product wasn't very good, that may be a plus for them.

After much anticipation, a package rocked up at the office this week. We get a lot of packages coming through the doors, especially when you share space with fashion journalists, video game experts and tech reviewers.
But this package was special. It was a mouse, not that I needed another. But it was new and that was enough to be exciting.
Power strip are a large, awkward, and difficult if you need to use your gadgets while you charge them. The PowerCube ditches the bulk, and gives you plenty of outlets in a compact package, making it easy to plug in your devices while you use them around the house.
