Surveillance gadgets are as entertaining as they are useful. Some security devices can save your life, while others are just fun to have. With over 150 gadgets to choose from, you will always be as safe as you are amused.
Dashboard cameras are useful for recording accidents. They can help you point out exactly what went wrong, and can be handy for insurance matters. Clock cameras can sit harmlessly on your desktop while keeping an eye on potential burglars or even naughty children.
Camera pendants are another unobtrusive method of surveillance. The wearer should be aware that they are wearing a camera, since pendants are often worn during very private moments. Night vision camcorders are useful for night guards and wildlife photographers.
A Portable Phone Jammer shaped like a cigarette pack can only be used for mischief, but it’s a very cool toy to have.
It can be used in movie halls, church services, or office meetings.
You can also get watches that have water proof pin hole cameras on their clock faces. The Socket Bug monitor is another interesting device. It is shaped like a socket and is loaded with a sim card. When you dial the number on the sim card, you can hear the voices and other sound signals around the extension cable.
Moving away from surveillance, another popular trend is Twilight. This series of books and movies has garnered a lot of media attention, and fans are always in search of merchandise and memorabilia.
For your neck, there is a Rosalie pendant and an Alice Choker necklace. Both items are replicas of jewellery worn by characters in the Twilight movies.
For clients who prefer wrist jewellery, there are several options.
There is a bracelet that emulates Esme’s and has the Cullen Crest on it. You can also get a Cullen Circle Charm bracelet and a New Moon tag bracelet. For gents, you can get a leather wrist cuff just like Edward’s which has the Cullen Crest on it.
For your car or house keys, you can get a key chain with several different New Moon symbols or one with New Moon tattoo art. There are more necklace options: a heart necklace with either Jacob or Edward written on it, A New Moon wolves tattoo art necklace, A Cullen Circle tri-charm necklace, and a New Moon pendant chain necklace. Finally, you can get a Carlisle ring with the Cullen Crest on it.
Well, no shocker here. Walking while playing golf is better for your health! However, there are more benefits than just to your health when you walk while playing golf. For older golfers, the thought of walking 18 holes can be a bit much if you regularly ride in a cart. Let’s explore some of the benefits of walking while playing golf to get you motivated to ditch the cart next time.
From a health perspective, some recent studies have validated what many of us already have known (yes, golf IS a sport and you DO get exercise by playing golf…even if you ride in a cart!). A group called ‘Golf Science International’ touts that walking for four hours while playing golf is equivalent to a 45-minute aerobic fitness class. Not bad. How about another study that showed a reduction in bad cholesterol from golfers who walked versus their peers who cruised in the cart? A fellow by the name of Edward Palank took the time to take on that study.
You’ve probably also heard about the ’10,000 steps per day challenge’, a health program that encourages people to count their steps and do what it takes to get 10k in per day.
In my own anecdotal (but quite unscientific) study with my regular golfing buddy, we found that walking your local muni will register around 8000 – 12000 steps.
A study released in late 2008 from Rose Center for Health and Sports Sciences in Denver validated that golf really is a sport. They strapped up a bunch of study participants and measured some key stats:
Walking and carrying your clubs for 9 holes burns 721 calories. A surprising finding was that using a pull cart versus carrying your clubs was a very small difference in the number of calories burned – you still burn 718 calories when using a pull cart! Save your back, use a pull cart.
Riding burns 411 – that’s still a pretty good number, which indicates that swinging the club is decent exercise in and of itself.
The study then got pretty interesting when it compared the average scores of golfers who walked and carried their clubs, those who walked and pulled their clubs, those who had caddies and those who took a golf cart. The results? Golfers scored best when pulling their clubs. Walking may very well give you time to think about your next shot and improve your game. Here’s how the average 9-hole scores broke down:
Pull cart: 40
Golf cart: 43
Carry clubs: 45
Interesting, huh? You can find more detail on the study at the PGATour.com site.
It’s unfortunate that there are many new courses that were not built with the walker in mind. In fact, it isn’t uncommon to find some resort courses only allow golf carts and not allow walking at all. Don’t be misled by that policy – it’s not because it actually takes longer to walk than to ride. In fact, studies show facts to the contrary. Instead, these policies are usually in place because the designer had to put significant distance between green to tee (sometimes for architectural desire to work with in the terrain…but many other times because they are routing a course through a resort or housing development). I’m sure you’ve played a few of these courses where it isn’t uncommon to have one-quarter to one-half mile between holes.
Next time you play 9 or 18 holes, you should consider walking if you don’t walk already. If it’s a bit too much of a shift for you, start by keeping your cart on the path only and walk to your ball from the path. Then perhaps shift to walking the front nine and riding the back nine before working your way up to walking the entire round. But definitely work your way up to at least walking a few of your rounds and not solely relying on the golf cart…you’ll enjoy the health benefits and the benefits of lower scores!

It wasn’t too long ago, when tiny camera’s, night vision, voice recognition technology and many more technological advances were not available to the general public. They were more suited to corporate organisations and the military who could afford it. But now, in the so called Technological age, that’s all changed. Now freely available in consumer electronics. But for a very cheap price too considering the technology.
Remember when CGI technology blew peoples minds when it was first seen. Now you probably wont see many movies without it. And remember when gadgets were exclusively for make belief secret agents such as 007 or Inspector Gadget. Now we see an entire market for gadgets for the public, from Mobile Phones to laser pens. It just shows how technology is moving along faster than an F1 race car. Why is this? It’s simple, there’s so much demand for gadgets, technology and anything that has a red LED that blinks. Companies have whole departments set on making something smaller and better at the cheapest price.
It wont be long until we find futuristic gadgets we see in movies today appearing in your local supermarket for shirt buttons. In fact even now innovation is happening, with the first motion sensing technology being used in video games consoles without the need for a controller.

I guess technology will continue to grow rapidly until we get nanotechnology freely available and so on.
