So it's official: us Brits are more jacked-into the network than a stony faced Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. According to a new survey from hotel-chain Travelodge, 72% of UK surfers can't sleep without checking up on social networks like…

10% of web users take SICK PLEASURE from browsing while on the toilet

It's dark. You can't find the thing you need. You need a Night Coaster.
This is a nice and simple gadget, and I like nice and simple gadgets.
The problem: You wake in the night and you need to take some medication / answer your mobile / put your glasses on – but it is too dark.
The answer: Night Coaster sits on your bedside table with your medication / mobile phone / pair of glasses on it’s surface. By simply waving your hand over the Coaster, a soft blue light is emitted and you are able to retrieve your item.
BedFan, air-con for your bed: sweaty sleepers, sweat no more
I’m deeply suspicious of the BedFan. A cool breeze is one thing but a constant jet of air at my feet is another altogether…
Karim Rashid Sphera bed – with built-in lights and TV
CES 2008: Starry Night is the most high-tech bed ever
Cor. I thought my kingsize divan bed was pretty cool, what with those built-in drawers, but the Starry Night Bed makes it look like a sorry pile of rags on the floor. Why? Let’s start with the surround-sound home cinema that’s built in, complete with four subwoofers and a 1080p LCD projector that casts a 10-foot screen on the wall.
Top five health-related gadgets for Lindsay Lohan now she's out of rehab. Sadly Madonna doesn't fit in a Chanel handbag…
If the word on the street is correct, you left rehab on the weekend after two months of detoxing and
avoiding your court order of one day in jail taking care of your mind, body and soul. Now, we’ve seen how easy it is to fall off the wagon once you leave rehab (Britney Spears, Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse can surely attest to that), so it’s more important than ever to ensure you look after yourself, Lilo. That means no hard partying with Paris and Nicole, no more dangerous older men (unless you can snag Johnny Depp and pimp him to me occasionally), and please god, no more firecrotch flashes. I don’t think my stomach can cope with that anymore!
Surely you know how to use a mouse, so just click on the button below, saying ‘Continue reading’, otherwise get your assistant to do it for you, and read my top five gadgets for keeping healthy now you’re out of rehab. It’s for your own good Lindsay, and ours too – we’ve been rather enjoying reading about Britney’s downfall in the Metro newspaper every morning, and sadly there’s just not enough space for you anymore. Stop sobbing, and take a look below….
Marks & Spencer is after your parents' retirement fund with the Autograph Monroe TV Bed
Can anyone else imagine their parents walking into Marks & Spencer to do the weekly shop consisting of salmon, mixed fruit packs and raspberry ‘n white chocolate flapjacks, then making a slight detour at the home interiors department on the way to picking up some cotton Y-fronts, and ending up ordering a TV bed? Or is it just me whose parents are at ‘that age’ where their idea of being spontaneous and wild is buying some home furnishings? Still, better than skydiving at least!
Marks & Spencer have added to their home interiors/technology departments with the TV Bed, a leather upholstered Monroe design which features a built-in area for holding a TV. With the touch of a button, the TV…
The Snowcrash Netsurfer combined PC desk and bed
For when those Warcraft sessions really start to hurt.
The Snowcrash Netsurfer is a semi-reclined chair and desk combo, with the monitor placed high up at eye level. Like most monitors on desks are already, really. It has little pillows do distribute your body weight, which, if you’re buying a custom PC desk, is likely to be massive.
