Recently we received some rather fetching PowerCubes from Allocacoc, a reimagination of a four gang power adapter for home use. These PowerCubes come in all manner of different configurations to fit your needs and we have a look at two different sorts. Over the last week we have been putting these to use and finding them quite adaptable to their surroundings and much better looking then the traditional style. The wife doesn’t seem to mind having one of these stretched across the floor and the layout of the plugs themselves have proved to be entirely practical.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has been out for a little while now and has met with some of the more mixed feedback we have seen for a flagship smartphone. There is always a battle of the camera and in a series of videos we hope to help you make your own mind up on which device has the best video quality for your needs.
Test video quality isn’t an easy thing, there are many factors to deal with, just as still shots. I find the best test is a dashboard mount as over a few minutes the camera will have to pull focus multiple times, deal with an extreme variety of light conditions and constant movement, not to mention shakes. In addition the microphone’s performance will also be put to the test with the constant background noise, whilst balancing vocal input.
The following are the Samsung Galaxy S5′s attempt to deal with a quick journey through my home town in my 3.0 litre pick-up truck on the four different settings available.
