Kickstarting disaster: When crowdfunding backfires

A Kickstarter pitch for an old school board game wouldn't ordinarily make it onto the pages of Gizmag.

But today Android slates have grown in quality and quantity, while shrinking in screen size and price. In the first quarter of 2013, they continued to eat into the iPad’s market share. Read More

Freefold luggage system aims to make garment bags obsolete

If you're the kind of businessman who travels cheek to cheek with commuters on the metro or subway – or who cycles to work – then you'll know that by the time you change into your once-pristine suit at the office, it can look more like a "before" image from a steam iron commercial than something fit to impress the boss.
