So, I ended up acquiring one of the ChargeKey Lightning-to-USB cables that I reblogged a few days ago. And, I have to say it is a handy little thing to have. I have used it at least once a day since I received it.
There are many times when I’m on the go with nothing more than my iPhone and, due to the day, I find myself in need of a quick charge. I have a USB power adapter in my car but usually not a cable with me. Well, now I do. It adds no more bulk than another key would on a keyring and is just as light. It appears to be pretty durable as well, And though the Lightning and USB plugs have been stripped to the bare essentials, they connect firmly when plugged in. They also sell a USB-to-Micro USB version for you users of, well, non-Apple made phones and devices.
No matter what, this is a neat idea and useful thing and well worth a look.

BBC’s Instafax on Instagram - is it a winner?
I’m beginning to warm up to BBC’s Instafax. The video’s are timely (as they should be), good use of video selections, captions snappy and give a fairly decent round up of news items, particularly considering the videos are only 15 seconds. I’d probably suggest that the experiment should be longer than a month, but so far I think the BBC could be on to something good. Check out BBC Instafax
