Thanks to Weekend At Bernies 2, you now have some sticky insurance situations to deal with. Unfortunately, your Car Cam Dually isn’t going to help your case much as it simultaneously records both you in your seat and the action out front. It would clearly show the moment of impact outside the vehicle — and that your eyes were not on the road, as you burst into a moment of hysterical laughter just before smashing through the windshield.

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come in two capacities: 64GB and 256GB. The term “GB” stands for gigabytes. The more gigabytes you have, the more content you can store on your iPhone, such as apps, games, photos, HD videos, music, and movies. If you have a large music or photo library or lots of apps, it’s a good idea to consider an iPhone with a larger capacity. If you rarely download apps or you don’t take many photos or videos, an iPhone with a smaller capacity may be better for you.
There are many cool developments going on in the car industry and manufacturers around the world are bringing more and more cool technologies and gadgets on board of our vehicles every day. But most of these new technologies and cool car gadgets are introduced only in the newest models and very few find their way to oldest cars. So what to do if you have an older car or if you purchased last year’s “latest model” and you start feeling it’s not gadgetized enough?
One to use on home soil rather than abroad (where you’d be at the mercy of roaming charges), this will keep the whole family entertained on long car journeys without using up your internet data. EE’s Buzzard 2 provides in-car 4G wi-fi – which up to 10 devices can connect to. The Buzzard 2 comes with either 6GB or 24GB of data (the latter currently costs £99 on Amazon). Before you set off on your journey, you’ll need to register the sim, but then you’re good to go. Useful if you want to keep the kids busy watching an online film or use your smartphone as a satnav.
The scanner is compatible with Mac, Windows, Android and iPhone, and it’s ideal for offices with high-volume correspondence that you don’t want to have to repeatedly dig in a paper file to find. Just run the “pen” over the text in question and it will convert the data into text on your computer or smartphone. The translation software will tell you what it all means. The scanner can decode 12-plus languages and turn the words into English. The WorldPenScan X can also take data from screenshots and direct-deposit it into most Word programs and search engines. At just eight inches long, it’s not clumsy or to handle, either.

I know what you’re thinking: A router?! I have no clue if it’s any good, but this geometric orb, available in gold or silver, certainly doesn’t look like a piece of networking technology. It also offers real-time network security for every device connected to it.
Not everyone has pets to lie on their feet and keep them toasty. So Sleep Number made a bed that knows when you’ve got cold feet and turns heat on at the bottom of the bed. In theory, the mattress changes its Sleep Number settings to compensate for changes in position and while it can’t stop someone snoring, if it senses you are, it raises your head to reduce your volume.
The Bluetooth headphone that could finally get audiophiles to cut the cord. Beyerdynamic’s Amiron wireless headphone is articulate, with excellent clarity and bass definition, and superior to the company’s on-ear Aventho Wireless — a great Bluetooth headphone in its own right.
