You can stand under my Ella-Ella LED Umbrella eh eh eh

British summertime just isn't the same without rain, puddles, mud and more rain. Luckily we've already got our eyes on our number one summer saviour for festivals, washed out barbecues and picnics, the cheesy, flashy and kinda sci-fi Ella-Ella LED Umbrella (eh eh eh, sorry). Viewquest has created an umbrella that's big enough to keep…

Geek pyjamas: cute yet cerebral

Hello, geek pyjamas! I saw these beautiful (men's) pyjamas on buzzbishop and immediately fell into a state of heart with them. In black with white mathematical drawings, they're at the cerebral end of geek pyjamas.

10 geekiest tattoos

Bad girls have them, geek girls can have them too: and if you're going to get a tattoo, why not use it to show off your knowledge of computer coding or geek culture? I didn't include any tattoos which involve the Apple logo. Tempting, but a macbook is always going to be slimmer and less…
