For anyone that uses a mac/PC for their TV needs, here are two things well worth checking out.
Firstly a great tip (lifted from Lifehacker) on how you can use your mac as a PVR… ‘How to Automatically Download TV Shows as Soon as They’ve Aired (or Turn Your Mac/PC into a TiVo)’ - full info here.
Secondly - if like me you’re on the eternal quest to minimise the need for physical movement - then you need to check out Rowmote.
Rowmote is a simple app that allows you to use your iPhone as a remote control giving you control over a massive range of apps on your mac. Plus, with the upgrade to Rowmote Pro you get full trackpad and keyboard control too.
Works really well, reduces the need to move off the sofa, what’s not to like?
Rowmote for iPhone and iPad is 59p, Rowmote Pro for iPhone and iPad is £2.99 from app store.

ThinkGeek’s iCade: iPad Arcade Cabinet was a dream April Fool’s joke, but it inspired Ion Audio to make the dream reality… the iCade was on show at CES and is going into production. Sweet.

If you’re after a slimline bag to carry your MacBook and iPad around in style, then look no further than the Knomo Lincoln laptop bag.
Knomo’s Lincoln comes in two sizes (suitable for 13” or 15” laptops) and a range of colours, but we absolutely love the bright shiny yellow - really making a statement with it’s eye-popping quality. But, for those that aren”t quite ready to be that bold, fear not - you can also get the Lincoln in the more subtle matt black, brown, grey and orange.
The quality and attention to detail is just stunning. Everything about the bag says quality, right down to the chunky custom zip pull-tabs, strap hooks and metal knomo badge on the front panel.
The exterior is made from waxed coated canvas making it hard wearing and water resistant and features a stitch grid pattern, leather trim on handles and a detachable shoulder strap. The main compartment is quilted to protect your tech and, whilst a great snug fit, still allows enough room to comfortably carry both your MacBook and an iPad (in an iPad case). The front zip pocket features a simple organiser and is perfect for keeping your tech and everyday paraphernalia safe (USB cable, pens, headphones, notebook and the like).
Knomo’s Lincoln is a beautiful bag that makes the perfect accompaniment to your MacBook and iPad (also works with any other laptop too of course). Also, as an everyday laptop bag it’s the perfect size - big enough to fit your essentials in, but slimline enough to make it lightweight and to ensure you rationalise what you’re carrying.
The Knomo Lincoln bag is £50 - available in a range of colours for £50 direct from Knomo.
