Color choices are great when it comes to gadgets. For too long the only colors you could get where black or perhaps grey or silver. You can get all sorts of smartphone colors today and one of the more popular is white.
If you thought that you would be okay just running away from robots, think again. This one won’t get tired, won’t run out of power and won’t stop until it catches you. That’s because it’s walking is powered by it’s own weight.
Let’s be honest, transforming your iPad into a netbook with a somewhat bulky Bluetooth keyboard seems a bit like a paradox; the whole reason why the iPad 2 is so easy to carry around is that it’s extremely light and you can still use it for a variety of purposes.
