Elephant Door – Review

So this is a thing. What caught my eye about this is this simple fact from the Elephant Alarms website.. Your door, especially if you live in an apartment (this is designed with flats, apartments and small offices in mind), can be a huge weak spot and an …

Doro 8040 now available to ease you into the smartphone world

Give a modern smartphone to my nan and she’d probably get a little confused and annoyed with the thing. A phone, to that generation, should be a communication tool and nothing else. Having hundreds of tiny icons, pop-ups and games isn’t what is necessarily wanted. Plus, despite the …
