    This KFC gaming console is real after all, and keeps your chicken warm

    The fast-food chain unveils a real gaming console powered by Intel that keeps your fried chicken warm while you play video games.

    Not to be outdone by Sony's PlayStation 5 and Microsoft's Xbox Series X, fast-food restaurant chain KFC (previously called Kentucky Fried Chicken) has launched its own gaming console. No, really. This time they mean it.

    Not so much new tech but One of the most useful things I've recently
    bought of Amazon, was a Desk Lamp with a built in wireless charger
    in its base. So when I'm on the laptop, I just place my phone on it and
    it gets charged automatically.

    That sounds useful, I have a lamp I bought a few years ago with two usb ports in the base... Very handy for charging the phone also.

    I have a RGB smart bulb in the lamp also which is controlled by my Echo Devices.

    To be honest it's how I'm using my wrist at the time, as to whether I'm
    Happy or Not :D

    It's a nice sentiment and all but I doubt many bosses would really care how unhappy their employee is. At least that's been my experience of the world of work. ;)

    Yes, as I say, my experience may not be typical but I've had some bad experiences with employers over the years. You tend to remember those more than anything good that happened.

    I'm sure we've all had bad experiences of Bad employers. I know I have, even
    though all analysis proves a happy workforce is more productive.

    Don't get me started on bad employers. Some of the things I've seen them do or have asked me to do continues to leave me dumbfounded, years later! :-? :-O #-o

    Just bought myself a FitnessTracker never used one previously, bought primarily for Running, Walking and Cycling. I am recovering from surgery so mobility not great at moment so tried the tracker whilst doing weight training, the functionality is excellent very impressed once you use the app the tracker is linked with.

    Whilst cycling and my phone is in my rucksack it will be very handy for text and call alerts, the wrist band works like a pager and displays the text messages.

    Sounds very handy.

    I had a casio digital watch a long time ago that had a pulse reading function by putting your finger on the bottom of the face of the watch and the result would come up on it.
    I don't know how accurate it was. Maybe it was just a gimmick ?

    I had a similar watch years ago that checked the pulse. I also have a black and white camera watch that is over 30 years old that still works in a drawer somewhere that was pre mobile phones. I have never really been a watch person though kept this new gadget on since I got it. It tracks your sleep also (light sleep/deep sleep) sensors are much more advanced now.

    What's better light sleep or deep sleep ?

    Experts say 1 - 2 hours deep sleep is good for proper rest. I had 3 hours deep sleep last night though I did over sleep as catching up on sleep. I slept ten hours according to the gadget in total.

    My girlfriend recently got a used AppleWatch from her father, when he upgraded to a newer model and there are quite a few interesting if ultimately inconsequential things one can do with those.
    The fitness and sleep trackingI guess is more or less the same as other types of tracking devices. Getting notifications on your wrist and being able to start and stop music playing without taking the phone out of your pocket is nice, too. Some of the custom watch faces are helpful, like having graph of sun's path and when dusk will hit. That came in handy on a recent hike. The most used feature at the moment might be to make the phone emmit a sound, to help finding it. As I said, interesting, but hardly consequential.

    I guess we've never seen Bond with a smart watch (well, with a modern smart watch anyway) because Omega doesn't produce one. Could be an interesting side-battlefield, if Apple does end up purchasing MGM and then try to crowbar their products into the films without upsetting Omega, who are I assume the most important product partner EON has next to Aston Martin.

    I looked at the premium watches £250 and upward. The one I got had a double discount so was only £17 and appears to have much of the same functions.

    I also noticed a handy phone camera control on mine, I can position the mobile phone where I want it and take photos from a distance using the FitnessTracker Band as a remote.

    I think a lot of the functions are gimmicky though I think it depends on what a person uses it for. It will be great for me whilst cycling.

    Regarding Bond it would be like an upgrade of PB's Bond phone in TND. There is definately potential there having a smart watch as a Q gadget.

    CITIZEN Satellite Wave GPS Watches
    img5.gif

    In 2011, Citizen invented a unique technology: Satellite Wave.
    It enables watches to receive time signals from orbiting GPS satellites to display precise time and date. Citizen Satellite Wave watches have the world's fastest* satellite time reception at 3 seconds.

    Right, the camera stuff is pretty neat, too.

    It is wild how a lot of stuff we saw in Bond films over the decades as completely fancyful is now just packed into a generally affordable consumer product. Which might be one of the reason's the Bond people have shied away from smartphones and smartwatches (apart from a generel lowering of the emphasis on gadgets from CR onwards and the fact that the latest Bond film was released only a handful of months after the first AppleWatch!). They are just a little bit too mass market. The difference between an AppleWatch and an Omega is a bit like the difference between a Tesla S and an Aston Martin DB11. Both are expensive products, but one is generally attainable while the other is real luxury.
