If there is one product that a Brit never leaves home without it’s an umbrella.
Although a conventional umbrella is fine if you have to dash out to get a sandwich or get to your parked car but what if you have to stand for long periods, say at a sporting event?
This is exactly the predicament Stephen Collier found himself in at last year’s Grand National when the weather literally rained on his parade. Feeling rather soggy and wind blown he hatched a plan for a new type of umbrella, modeled on a motorbike helmet.

So, we found out that this is our fifth year in print (they’re all here to download).
Imagine that. Five years.
Enough to get a child into school, enough time to pretty much travel the world (which I think we’ve about all done - Phileas Fogg might have beaten us to it). But as ever when you start up a company, you have an idea, a plan and you execute it.
Yet does that mean that you stop changing what you do and how you do it? That’s what I’m pondering, sat in the office, waiting for summer to arrive.
So I figured I’d ask you, our dear readers, what should we do next? Anything that we should change, anything that we should be doing differently, anything that you think we’re doing a bad job of?

Dell has launched two new CAD-focused workstations at opposite ends of the spectrum: an entry-level desktop machine and a high-end rack workstation. Both come with bold claims.
The Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor (SFF) is said to be the smallest tower workstation chassis in its class, measuring a mere 290mm x 92.6mm x 312mm.
At the other end of the spectrum, the Dell Precision R7610 is claimed to be the world’s most powerful rack workstation.
