Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect
No, granny is not getting into gaming, kids. Well, possibly not, but a gadget like Kinect and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved software is a rather good way of using the technology for less frivolous ends than your average first-person shooter.
Mums of any age will surely enjoy getting up and doing a spot of exercise, whether it's in YS:FE's personal training, fitness or gym games section. The routines and exercises are geared towards newbies, but the progression system will also appeal to mums who exercises regularly.

Sennheiser PX 210 BT wireless headphones
These compact yet comfortable Bluetooth cordless headphones are great for long journeys or simply lounging around on the sofa. They produce a warm, textured sound that captures plenty of detail, though the maximum volume level is relatively limited.
The PX 210 BTs are collapsible, handy when they need to be tidied away, and support the Apt-X codec if she has a player that supports it. If not, they'll link up to any ordinary Bluetooth-capable media player or phone.

so i'm out in the aussie bush, then see this story, 4,000km from home, and i paid $80 each for some flower deliveries to my partner and mother, only to discover that mother's day in Australia is May 8th....a full 5 weeks away!!
now i gotta pay for it all again in a few weeks /facepalm
Eh, is the toaster actually real then?
I honestly thought that was el-reg's april fool joke.
Let's face it, though, a slanket is just a backwards dressing gown.
A little clarification please?
"Yes, Sunday, 3 April is Mother's Day _here_in_the_UK_".
Please remember that you have a very international audience when posting these articles. Just clarifying that one sentence would have saved me a small heart palpitation seeing as the five-0 won't let me out of the house for another week or so.
For those of us in the US, Mother's Day is not until May 8. For those of you not in the UK or US, I have no idea when you may have Mother's day, if you have a Mother's Day or if you even have a mother for that matter.
Yes, all of us reg readers are very capable of getting our kit to your Ma in time!
