It is safe to say that no matter whether you are at work or watching your favourite TV show you are likely to receive a phone call, text message, email or somebody will speak to you. These distractions can have an effect on you and it can easily be prevented.

This is the MyFocus device, it is by the Canadian based Can Focus and what it will do is alert people that you do not want to be disturbed, while cutting you off from outside interruptions such as email, phone and other messages.

The main part of the device is the large button, its green most of the time and when you do not want any interruptions simply press it and the button turns red as a clear warning to anyone approaching that you really do not want to be disturbed.

However, there is more, because in the digital world, nobody is going to be able to see the red button glowing and so MyFocus is connected to Smartphone’s, tablets and computers preventing digital interruptions too allowing a real moment of peace and quiet.

Glasses are strange things these days, simply because they are often worn by people who do not need any help with their vision, they are a fashion accessory!

New Google Wallet App For Android Users!


The Gmail payment system run by Google called Wallet is not much easier to use with a new app, the downside is that it is only available in the US so far, but no doubt, it will roll out across all Google Play users in due course. What the app actually does is allow the user to send cash via Gmail, sounds easy and it is. You can send cash from your bank account to another person in the US with an email address and as added bonus, users of loyalty cards are able to add offers to their wallet, which makes it easier to redeem offers faster.

According to a post by Peter Hazlehurst, Director, Product Management – Google Wallet, he says;

Today, we’re introducing a new version of the Google Wallet app, which is rolling out this week to all Android phones (version 2.3 and higher), available this week in the U.S. The updated app helps you easily send money on the go, store all your loyalty cards, save money through offers, and view all your Google Wallet activity – all in one place.

Pandoo The Desktop You Can Access On Any Device!


We are becoming more mobile and less chained our desks, but that does not mean that we can go without accessing our files, apps and data that would be crazy! So, we look around for online services that provide this type access and surprisingly there are quite a few to choose from such as those offered by Apple, Google and Microsoft! So, why would we want to take a look at another service? Well maybe it is because it offers everything you need in one place!

This is Pandoo, it’s a start up that is hoping to launch early next year! They claim that with the Pandoo desktop set up you will be able to personalise the desk top features to suit your lifestyle, maybe its business or personal we all have different requirements. Pandoo looks like a different way to organise your online life, take a look at the video below to see what you think about the Pandoo service, is it something that you would consider switching over too?

Pandoo will be offering users access to some cool services, such as PANDOOster a task scheduler with alert system, PANDOO M@il a universal mail integrator, PANDOO Cloud with unlimited storage and finally there is EUREKA a personalized search engine! We have been searching for costs, but cannot find any and so we have to ask, will this service be truly free, add supported or will there be any costs involved at all now or in the future?
