worst toy of 2013 is the ipotty

What would you do if i said I had found a technology short article that isn’t only interesting but educational also? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so here it is the enlightening, superb and interesting article

headphonesThe Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) has officially selected the ‘iPotty’ (from CTA Digital) as the worst toy of 2013.

In case you’re wondering, the iPotty consists of a basic potty setup, but with the added innovation of a stand for holding an iPad (apparently an aid to toilet training). I’m also assuming that there is an app. There’s always an app.

Once the infant is placed on the potty, the iPad can be rotated 360 degrees around the seat on its stand, meaning that the device can be switched between vertical and horizontal views. The iPotty even has a protective touchscreen for use in case of…Well, you get the idea.

However, that’s not all. You’d think it would be, but it isn’t. The iPotty also has a clip-on cover that converts it into a regular seat, so your child can enjoy a quiet, insular, sedentary activity in the exact same place they just took a dump.

The CCFC’s TOADY (Toys Oppressive and Destructive to Young children) award, a dubious honour that the group bestows upon the worst toy released over a 12-month period, is a rather damning indictment of the iPotty’s usefulness.

Despite being described by its manufacturers as a “comfortable and fun place to learn to use the potty”, the CCFC’s Michelle Salcedo said that, “Children should be aware of the cues in their bodies as they learn. This toy takes this social/emotional focus out of the process and substitutes the hypnotism of a screen,” CCFC voter Alex Reynard added that the iPotty, “not only reinforces unhealthy overuse of digital media, it’s aimed at toddlers. We should NOT be giving them the message that you shouldn’t even take your eyes off a screen long enough to pee.”

He’s got a point.

According to the CCFC, potty training ought to be a time of positive interaction between child and parents. Sigmund Freud also famously suggested that potty training is a vitally important time for the development of a child’s psychology.

The iPotty is available online for about £30, but the iPad itself will need to be sourced separately (they start at about £400, so I’d suggest instructing your child to read a book instead, like the rest of us do).

Evidently, a parent did not design this device, as any parent knows that it is hard enough to get your child to focus on the task at hand in the first place, without throwing a few levels of ‘Angry Birds’ into the mix as well.

Amazingly, were CTA Digital to have marketed this product to a certain variety of adult, I personally believe that it would have been very popular indeed.

Anyway, that’s all from me this year!

What would you do if i said I had found a earphone short article that isnt only interesting but informative also? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so here it is the educational, superb and interesting piece

headset. earphonesDJ culture has grown in the UK in a huge way. Where once, skinny, spotty guys in ill-fitting leather jackets would try to impress girls by saying Im in a band, now those same, slightly less spotty, guys, (this time clad in ill-fitting hoodies), try the Im a DJ line…Likely to a similar lack of success. But, for every lame duck wannabe with a turntable and a sad pile of dog-eared 90s Ibiza records, there are several people who can really do amazing things with a turntable. The era of the DJ is well and truly here!

A pair of Sony DJ Headphones can really help you make the transition (should you need to) from acne-ravaged artiste to club sensation. With Sony DJ Headphones, you can go from lord of the geeks to god of the beats in one fell swoop. Maybe.

So much care and attention has gone into the making of these Sony DJ Headphones, that one imagines the engineers husbands and wives bringing legions of lovers into the house, just to try and gain the attention of their other halves. The engineers probably developed crippling drug addictions just to maintain the demands placed upon them by the Sony executives (who obviously required nothing less than absolute perfection). In all probability, the engineers even had their hands cut off when the job was done, in order to prevent them from ever working on any other headphones in future.

Unlike other headphones, Sony DJ Headphones have been designed with your art form in mind and feature the most mind-blowing and innovative use of bass since your skeevy Uni housemate disappeared for several days and was later found roaming the streets of Croydon and claiming to be a 16th century Spaniard from the moon. Amazing.

Utterly modern on the inside, but featuring a trendy vintage looking exterior, Sony DJ Headphones are the last word in cool. You can wear em in the street, or wear em at the turntables and youll look equally amazing. The sound that blasts out of these speakers is crisper than Gary Lineker taking a tour of a Walkers factory and deeper than Barry Whites voice echoing around the Grand Canyon. Absolutely breathtaking.

In addition, you can use your Sony DJ Headphones to listen to just about anything. True DJs are students of music, after all, and these bad boys will faithfully reproduce anything from Vivaldi to Venom with 100% clarity, purity and accuracy. Surely, theres never been a better set of headphones for the modern mixer.
