Believe it or not Christmas is just a few weeks away, so you best get your skates on if you’re yet to start the perennial festive shopping spree.

If you use a smartphone or tablet most of the time, it can be a pain when you find yourself needing to rattle off a long email or work on an essay using a touchscreen keypad. Enter WINGStand, a simple plastic stand that’s revolutionising the way we use portable devices. Thanks to its clever design, the WINGStand allows the user to attach their device to a full-sized keyboard — perfect for when you need to do an extensive spot of impromptu typing.

Set for release towards the end of November; Microsoft’s Band 2 comes as a late pre-Christmas entry to the smart watch market, but one with the potential to steal the show from its rivals. Compatible with most smartphones — including iOS devices — the Band 2 lets you control your mobile life right from your wrist, and features a number of great apps that can help you get more out of your day.
