Is your man a fixer upper? Or a tech geek who likes to build their own tech toys? Or even an avid gamer who has to have the top PC specs to play the latest game releases?

Buying gifts that won’t be re-gifted the next Christmas can be tricky. For that person in your life that loves to be hands-on with pimping out their tech toys or needs the highest computer specs to meet their needs, why not get them a big memory upgrade?

Installing memory might seem intimidating – but no computer skills are necessary, so even the more novice DIY-ers can do the upgrade themselves. And those that have robust computer requirements (gamers, designers, etc.) will be happy to have the feel of a newer and faster system without the hassle of getting one.

The Piano in a Flash Online Piano Method

Finally, a piano method that will quickly teach adults how to have fun playing the songs they love as quickly and easily as possible!

Scott Houston, the 8X Emmy Award winning Public Television host of The Piano Guy TV series teaches you in the comfort of your own home using an online system that is fully integrated with lesson and song books.

The Piano in a Flash Online Piano Method is a complete piano method consisting of 6 expansive online courses, which start at the very beginning in Course 1 by exposing you to the techniques and skills that a beginning “chord-style” piano player needs in order to build a strong foundation. The method then works you through increasingly more advanced lessons, exposing you to skills and techniques needed by more competent players.

Our piano method provides very methodical baby steps and comprehensive exercises tied to all instruction.

It’s 100% student-centric vs. teacher-centric. Students rave that as opposed to traditional private lessons, they get to choose the time, day, place and amount of time to spend on each lesson. Questions are not a problem either—and are submitted through the feedback built into EVERY page of the system. We’ll respond quickly (even with a customized video response if necessary!) to answer your question and to ensure you keep making steady forward progress. It does require online access, as the video lessons and video exercises are streamed to your device (laptop, tablet or computer).

The full 6 Course Method includes: 9 books: $699

Individual Courses $149

All prices include shipping within the US (outside US is $35 USD)

Our method comes with a 30-day, money back offer, so you have nothing to lose and so much fun to gain!

Axe & Hammer is an online art gallery that features beautiful photography from around the world. We handpick authentic photographers and curate their best work to create high-quality paper, metal and framed prints.

Unlike your typical online art shop, our prints are limited to small batches and our photographers are rotated, meaning that each print ends up in only a handful of homes. Our collection is hand-curated and kept to a high standard, so there’s no need to weed through mediocre photography to find your perfect print.

Our production process is the same one that is used by high-end galleries and museums. We use industry leading materials and we hand assemble each print to order before shipping it directly to the customer’s doorstep. We currently produce three types of prints:
1. Paper prints: created using top of the line fine art papers (19 mil or 310 gsm) and high-quality archival inks.
2. Metal prints: printed directly onto rigid 1/16″ thick aluminum and coated with glossy acrylic for protection and shine.
3. Framed prints: printed onto high-quality paper, encased in a natural, flaw-free wood frame and covered with acrylic for protection.

We care deeply about the impact our business has on the world, so sustainability is at the forefront of our considerations. We use a Green Certified lab that has been recognized for its conservation efforts and we give a portion of our profits to the Environmental Defense Fund to ensure that environmental abuse doesn’t happen outside of our business.

With hundreds of beautiful photos to choose from and quality that will satisfy even art collectors’ standards, Axe & Hammer prints are the perfect guilt-free gift this holiday season.

All of our prints ship free within the US and each print has a 30-day hassle-free return policy.

Its unique one-piece leather vamp means there are no seams to chafe or wear out.

The Hubbard Fresh takes you where no hiking shoe has gone before—into a world of lush comfort you can only get with our glove-leather lining, triple-density Poron® insoles, and padded tongue and collar.

Comfort has never been so rugged.

The ErgoMounts Paramotion Dual Monitor Arm is the ultimate computer accessory for the home or office. Multiple monitors have been proven to increase productivity and allow you to focus on more than one task at the same time. However, this often comes at the price of desk space. Monitor stands are bulky and cumbersome often taking up most of your working area. The Paramotion removes that problem but putting both screens on to a single, stylish looking pole.

This mount offers users the ability to adjust the height and articulation of the arm without the need of any tools or technical knowhow. The uniquely designed parallel head unit means the arms can be moved freely while maintaining the angle of the screen independently.

The dual monitor stand can support a total weight of 18Kg (9Kg per monitor) and is compatible with all screens using either VESA 75mm x 75mm or VESA 100mm x 100mm interface plates (check your monitor manufactures website for more information). Installation couldn’t be simpler, the mount can be ordered with a choice of two separate desk attachments:

Desk Clamp: Slide the clamp over the edge of the desk and secure the mount into place. This is an ideal solution for when you can’t drill into the desk surface or if you are planning on moving the mount in the near future.

Bolt Through: By drilling a small hole into the desk the mount can be secured into place anywhere it is required. Not only does this give a much cleaner aesthetic but it also makes the dual arm more secure preventing any accidental slippage caused by a desk clamp becoming loose over time.

The Paramotion is manufactured by ErgoMounts Ltd. A UK manufacturer and distributor of monitor arms based in Aldershot, Hampshire. All of their products are hand assembled at their facility to ensure their products meet the high quality standards their customers have come to expect.

It’s very easy for cyber-criminals to create a spoofed website that looks like an official retailer and then offer ‘unbelievable’ deals. Once a payment is made you may receive inferior products, and that’s if they arrive at all. Remember to always check the URL of the website and look out for domain names that end in .net or .org.

Pay by credit card

Credit cards provide protection if things go wrong with a purchase. If the goods don’t show up or are faulty, and cost more than £100, Section 75 of the Consumer Rights Act means you can claim the money back. For goods under £100, or payments made by debit card, you can ask your bank to recover the money through “chargeback”. Always be suspicious if a website asks you to make a bank transfer instead of paying by card.

Make sure the site is secure

Check for ‘https’ at the start of the website URL. The ‘s’ stands for secure. Look for a padlock on the left of the browser. If the padlock is on the page itself this is probably a spoofed website.

Beware of phishing emails

Phishing messages are designed to appear from trusted organisations such as your bank or HMRC, or familiar retailers like Apple, Tesco and Argos. They aim to trick you into revealing personal details. The emails usually contain links which when clicked download malicious software or take you through to a spoofed website where your personal details are requested. Over the Christmas holidays, be very wary of emails from retailers offering deals or cash prizes. Check the email address and don’t click on any links embedded in the message. Even an “unsubscribe” link could be malicious.

Don’t trust Whatsapp messages offering gift cards

Whatsapp users have reported receiving messages offering Topshop and Sainsbury’s gift cards that appear to be sent from a phone contact. The link takes you through to an official looking site which requests personal details. Clicking on the link would also allow cyber-criminals to collect personal information from your device that could track you. Delete messages like these even if they look like they’ve come from someone you trust and install security software on your device.

‘Freebies’ on Facebook

Free iPads, flights, shopping vouchers, Alton Tower tickets and cheap RayBan sunglasses all fall into the category of “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is”. Cyber-criminals create attractive looking deals which they post on Facebook asking users to “like” and “share” the advert to boost it to the top of news feeds and target a wider audience. If you click through you will be asked for personal details which can be used for fraudulent purposes. The posts may appear to be from legitimate companies – check if the Facebook account is verified with a blue tick.

Avoid shopping on public wi-fi

Internet hotspots offered by coffee shops, libraries and bars may be incredibly convenient but are extremely vulnerable. A cyber-criminal can easily hack into the network and access your user details or set up their own fake hotspot. If you’re shopping or banking online use your own 3G/4G network or wait until you get home.

Don’t fall for the “Click and Receive” scam

Be suspicious of emails that ask you to click on a link and enter your details to rearrange a delivery. It won’t tell you what the item is but over the holiday period thousands of people are likely to have ordered something online and may be tricked into handing over personal information. In some cases credit card details may be asked for to “verify” the delivery. Be suspicious if the email doesn’t tell you what the ordered goods are and if in doubt, retrace your order trail and make a call to the company you’re expecting a delivery from.

When shopping on eBay stick to the rules

There are various ways that eBay protects users – those who don’t stay within the guidelines will struggle to get their money back if they fall victim to a scam. Always pay by Paypal – most items will be protected by eBay’s Money Back Guarantee. Scammers will try and get you to pay by bank transfer or a service such as Moneygram. Do this and you forfeit your protection. Also be wary of sellers contacting you directly to offer you a better deal than the listed price. Be careful of those with little or no selling history.

Watch out for fake customer reviews

More than half of UK adults use online review websites such as Amazon, Tripadvisor, Expedia and Checkatrade to find the best bargains. But among the genuine reviews are millions of fakes. Be suspicious if too many of the reviews seem similar – it suggests they are being copied and pasted or written by the same person. It should raise a red flag if the reviews are all very new. If you are at all suspicious of the website avoid it.

If you think you’ve been a victim of a scam – act fast

If you’ve been conned call your bank immediately and ask them to try and stop the payment. The sooner you do this the more chance you have of getting your money back. Banks will only refund customers who have been defrauded on their credit card or debit card, or a transaction has been actioned without their authorisation. Call your bank yourself, not a phone number given to you in a possibly scam letter or email.

Banks are not responsible for reimbursing customers who have been deceived into making payments.

If action is taken swiftly and there are funds remaining in the cyber-criminal’s account your bank may be able to claw back it back if it requests an indemnity. If you feel your bank has not done enough to help you make a complaint and take it to the Financial Ombudsman to investigate. You should also report it to Action Fraud.

KRONOS LIFT STANDING DESK


Executive level design meets premium functionality with innovative design firm and manufacturer BDI’s latest addition to its home office collection—Kronos. Designed with superior functionality and eye-catching style by Matthew Weatherly, the Kronos collection includes a new sit+stand electronic desk, a Multifunction Cabinet and a Mobile Credenza.

For the latest in adjustable standing desks, Kronos elevates the sit+stand desk to a level suitable for hardworking executives. Thanks to an easy-to-use digital keypad that can be mounted on either side, users can adjust the desk from 24.5 inches for sitting, and up to 49.5 inches for standing heights — providing the perfect position for any user. This allows for comfortable sitting when intense focus is necessary, or raised to a height better suited for standing and enjoying the health benefits associated with getting on your feet.

Aside from its functionality, Kronos is also beautifully designed for the home office space. Featuring an ultra-smooth work surface in a soft white that is smooth, durable and easy to clean, the desktop is offset by warm, natural walnut veneers on the fascia. A modesty panel, in the same natural walnut, complements seated use and keeps wiring neatly concealed. A motorized base with a minimal satin white finish completes the design and focuses attention on the upper levels, providing a floating aesthetic.

With storage in mind, a unique mezzanine shelf helps the workspace stay neat and clutter-free, while an included storage drawer with a flip-down front and non-slip lining makes an ideal space for a keyboard and other office essentials. The desk also boasts a wire management ledge and channels for routing cables out of site and out of mind. A power strip can also be mounted under the desktop with the supplied mounting kit,
providing one convenient location for plugging in all peripherals.
