Home phones return with three models from VTech

The home phone isn’t talked about much anymore, and the mobile is to blame, but if you’re still in need of something for that home line, one of the originals is still around, and even has a couple of new products in case your old one decided to shut shop only recently.

Aussies build a soft bag to transport clothes, shoes, tablet

Backpacks are great tools for bringing lots of bits and pieces with you — lunch, laptop, other things not beginning with the letter “l” — but try bringing a suit, and it’s just not going to happen, so a couple of Aussies went to work to change that.
