Hoorah for summer…

Having experienced a little bit more of the hot stuff than usual over the past few weeks (must be a record in Ol’ Blighty), at Proporta our minds have started to wander towards holidays, summer travel and the beach. And being an adventurous lot, we’ve put together a selection of our favourite travel essentials (and some great offers to boot) to keep your gadgets safe and sound, and fully charged, wherever you are.


These offers are valid from Saturday 21st May to Saturday 28th May.

Something else that made us smile…

We all know how stressful the run up to the exam period and school leaving can be, so a headmaster in Scotland collaborated with some of his students and staff to start a flashmob to give everyone something to remember.

Invisibility cloak…

We thought we’d share with you all something that made us smile today.

Ever wondered it would be like to be invisible for a day? What would you do? Sneak into the cinema for free, get on stage and air guitar with your favourite band, or streak at a football match? This item might be for you. If you have a few hundred quid spare and are on eBay you could become the proud owner of a waterproof cycling jacket/invisibility cloak.

Please note, this jacket will not turn you into Harry Potter or give you magical powers. Sorry.

Calling all festival goers…

According to a poll in RWD.com’s latest edition (May 2011) asking readers “What’s the one item you couldn’t live without at a festival?” 8% of you can’t live without your phone at a festival. So whether you are heading to Glastonbury, Creamfields or Download, don’t forget to take a TurboCharger 3400 with you. This nifty little device will give your phone a boost of juice and means you won’t have to live without it at any point over the weekend.
