This Clock Pongs!!

This little gadget has been floating round the net for a few months now, but it's so cool that we thought we'd share it with all of you. A Dutch design company, Buro Vormkrijjgers has developed an inventive new clock implementing the game pong.

The perfect gift for that retro-gaming significant other, the clock is a large LCD screen, with the time broken up into two parts along the top. The screen is divided into two and a game of pong is played out on the screen by computer opponents. Whenever the time is scheduled to change, one player will score, altering the numbers along the top and thus updating the time.

Pong Clock!

It doesn't get much cooler than that. Unfortunately for the hapless computer opponents, the player on the left appears to be doomed to loosing fifty nine in every sixty games for the rest of eternity. Small price to play so we can have a pong clock though right?

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
