Black Friday & Cyber Monday at dabs.com

Black Friday and Cyber Monday have fast become the biggest shopping days of the year at dabs.com and we expect 2015 to be no different. We’ve got plenty of deals to launch at 00:01 on the 27th November.

Originating from the US, ‘Black Friday’ takes place on the Friday following Thanksgiving (a day which lies on the fourth Thursday in November). Traditionally, Black Friday has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US. Continue reading Black Friday & Cyber Monday at dabs.com

Your Perfect Gadget Competition

Here in the Dabs office, we take tea very seriously.

Rigidly enforcing a brew schedule which, if anyone has the misfortune to deviate from, will face consequences that will plague the rest of their careers. It acts as the key to our ignitions while we chug away providing you with awesome daily deals.

So you can imagine the atmosphere when we run out of milk.

First, there’s the initial disappointment followed by swift acceptance; we can manage without a brew for a while we say, we won’t be slaves to a piping hot overwhelmingly British beverage.

But it isn’t long before the withdrawal symptons begin; the shakes, the short tempers, the hallucinations. Worst of all, in a desperate attempt to fill the tea shaped void, someone even contemplates getting a machine brew.

This is exactly why we need a gadget or gizmo which tells us when we’re running low on supplies, something like this:

 

It’s a milk jug which knows when you’re running low on milk. Designed by a Canadian based agency, the jug is fitted with a weight sensor monitoring how much milk is left. Once it has reached low levels, the system will automatically send a notification to your smartphone and use your device’s GPS to suggest nearby locations where you can re-stock on the white stuff.

A pretty awesome gadget for an office that treats tea drinking like it’s an Olympic sport, if only there was a device that did the same for tea bags and we’d be first in the queue to order one.

But it got us thinking, what fictional or generally awesome gadget do you yearn for? Is it real or is it an idea that you ponder about wondering why it hasn’t been done already? We’re looking for creative ideas here folks so be original, and also consider how the gizmo would vastly improve your life.

Post your ideas to the forum: http://www.dabs.com/forum/showthread.php/1699-Your-Perfect-Gadget-Competition?p=12758#post12758 and I shall check them out to see which ones are the best, of which will be awarded prizes!

The competition deadline is Friday 25th May, good luck folks!
