Ten... bits of Jubilee tat tech

Fit for a Queen?

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Samsung Galaxy Note

RH Numbers

Samsung UK notched up the Queen's Royal Warrant in 2012, becoming the first AV manufacturer to receive this honour. So with its By Royal Appointment status, it's no surprise that the company has been waving the flag and adorning a special edition smarties in red, white and blue.

An Olympic version of the stupendously sized Samsung Galaxy Note can be snapped up at O2, with a faded British flag on its case. The budget Samsung Galaxy Y has been given the same treatment too. Those who purchase a £500 Note or £80 Galaxy Y will be entered into a prize draw to either win a trip to the Team GB training camp, or tickets to Olympics events. Of course, a 5.3in Galaxy Note will undoubtedly come in handy for the games. By that, I mean playing Angry Birds Space while squashed in the sweatbox of London's Underground this summer. Tourists, gotta love 'em.

Sebo Felix Royale Upright Vacuum Cleaner

RH Numbers

With the exception of our teeth, and governmental practices, us Brits have a passion for keeping things clean. Perhaps this is why Sebo has launched a Union Jack themed vacuum cleaner. A patriotic sucker for the… patriotic sucker.

The Felix Royale is designed for all floor types apparently, even the corgi-furred carpets of Buckingham Palace. It'll set you back a bit more than a Henry, though. Speaking of which, a Jubilee edition desktop Henry can be snapped up as well, but truth be told, it'll barely dust-off your keyboard, let alone a rug.
