TechStyles Top 10 – November 2010

iRetrofone SteampunkHere we have the top 10 stories read on TechStyles over the month of November. The most-read story, by a very long way was the iRetrofone Steampunk piece. This was thanks to it going big on the StumbleUpon website. If you’ve not done so join up, it’s a terrific way to find to interesting websites and pages.

You’ll also notice the StumbleUpon logo at the top and bottom of all articles on the TechStyles site – along with graphics for Facebook, Twitter , Digg and Reddit – click on these and you can share the stories with the world, plus make me one very happy little web publisher!

Now, to the top 10…

1. iRetrofone Steampunk – take your iPhone back to the future – when design worlds collide. The iRetrofone Steampunk is a home phone styled after one of the bakelite phones of the 1950s/60s, run through the steampunk filter, and built to house your iPhone.

2. Nokia N8 smartphone preview – after a long, long, long build-up, this smartphone and its new Symbian^3 operating system is finally in stores.

3. Win 1 of 3 copies of Alien Anthology Limited Edition – this is one of the most complete movie packages on disc to be released. Get in quickly, this competition close on December 9!

4. White iPhone 4 – none till the end of the year – well, as it turns out there will be no white iPhone 4 until March 2011. Maybe.

5. Samsung Galaxy Tab release date announced – another gadget with a somewhat long lead-up. It’s been generally well-accepted, but it gave the iPad a big start.

6. HTC Desire GPS issue – fix expected soon – I’m surprised this one is still popping up, this issue is long-resolved!

7. TechStyles Newsletter – have you signed up yet? Keep on top of the latest gadgets, and be the first to know of upcoming competitions.

8. Brennan JB7 – CD player with up to a 5,000 CD disc capacity hard drive – available to buy online only, this device has been a real success story, both in terms of its sales, and its longevity in the TechStyles Top 10.

9. Family Guy: It’s a Trap! – Star Wars spoof, part 3 – a hopefully irreverent and funny pisstake of ‘The Return of the Jedi’, due for release on December 22. Why so damn close to Christmas?

10. Henge Docks – docking stations for Apple Mac notebooks – another old favourite in our top 10. This is a smart design solution, and MacBook and MacBook Pro owners like the way it looks, and the way it works.
