Apps, gadgets and gizmos

I have always loved gadgets. Gadgets of any kind, be it household, kitchen or computer. Now I am working a lot more with computers, I love discovering Apps. And give me gizmos any day.

Fax easily from iphone with Tiny Fax app

Handy App Recently while camping an hour drive from the nearest town, I needed to print a document, sign and return by fax. Now an hour from town really means two hours when you think of one hour to get there and one hour to get home. My extremely useful cheap laser...
