Why Clique from Henge docks is a perect companion for your iMac wireless keypad and trackpad

This was a long pending quick review of the Clique dock from [Henge Docks](http://hengedocks.com/products/clique-magic-trackpad-and-wireless-keyboard-dock). To put in simple manner, this is a dock to hold the Apple wireless keyboard and the Apple wireless trackpad (both amazingly created and crafted accessories) together in one horizontal plane.



Selling for about 25$ (within usa, plus shipping for international) this was a nifty addition for my aging iMac. So i ordered the same and when the package arrived, it looked stunning. There were instructions all over the place and the packaging was looking excellent. Like all USA products, extensive packaging, one would like to put it!



The package contained the henge dock within a layer of packaging foam which looked nice and soft. Once I removed the dock my expectations were grossly undermet. What I expected was a hard aluminium or titanium matte finished dock surface and I was completely astounded to see that it was made of a more thinner, fl…

Flipkart's mobile app bar code scanner review

I got a chance to test out the flipkart mobile app bar code reader today. This feature works in a simple manner, choose bar code reader, and it uses your camera to read bar codes from objects that you are interested in.

As long as the barcode is a universal barcode as per what is used across the country, and further that item is available in flipkart, it uses the scan results to divert users directly to that product page where you can purchase the same product easily from the online store.

So if you are at your friend’s home and you see a product you are interested in, you can do a quick bar code scan check using flipkart mobile app to see if the same product is available at their store.

Get ready to welcome the new Honda Mobilio MUV

Honda is about to launch its MUV the Mobilio. Well known for its new design, ample space, good petrol and diesel engine and an automatic variant with two rows of airconditioning and ample storage spaces, this vehicle is going to sell like hot cakes when it comes out to the market in a month or two.

The mobilio will compete against Ertiga, Ecosport, Duster, and XUV 500 all good in their own right, and also having good amount of booking wait times now.

Meanwhile it is interesting to see the Mobilio in its most clear form in the real world through this indonesian marketing video. The video is not in english, but still its worth watching to see what the company will launch in india. Most things such as warranties, versions and features would match what is being sold in Indonesia, so this is pretty much the version India will see.

Flipkart announces Flipkart First - a priority customer support service on subscription model

Flipkart surely has many more things up its sleeve. Notwithstanding the assault mounted on this company by Amazon, Infibeam, Shopclues, Snapdeal and the rest of the online sites, Flipkart has taken the war to a totally new level - and its called **[Flipkart First](http://www.flipkart.com/flipkart-first?otracker=hp_widget_banner_0_image)!**



Its basically akin to a preferred customer concept where upon a yearly subscription you are given more preference over the others to make you satisfied for the impulsive shopper you are. Notable things you will receive as a subscriber to this juggernaut are free shipping, free in one day guarantee, priority over others, and a whopping 60 day replacement guarantee over the current 30 days. Whether or not it applies to all sellers is something not made clear yet. But in the history of Indian online shopping, this is perhaps the first time that someone is going to be able to get a 60 day replacement guarantee. I do wish it was a refund or replacement, i…

How many times had you had to travel on a hot afternoon to the mall with your family for that clothing purchase? And those unimagniable number of people at the clothing section, and the ever full trial rooms brimming with clothes and people?



Add to it crying and cranky kids, who are also hungry, and a situation where you are not getting the right fit of clothes?

If you do, you can pay cash on delivery. if y…
