Some might say thank goodness it’s Friday, but we’re saying three gadget-lovers for follow Friday.
Every week we identify some great Twitter accounts that we’re watching and we think you should too. This week we’re looking at the gadget lovers (or makers) that we’ve been writing about. Read our stories and follow the accounts on Twitter to see what happens next.

Alex Davies is a friend of ITBusiness.ca and a freelance writer too. We’re always impressed with his passion for gadgets and we’re sure you will be too once you read his comprehensive guide to the top 10 ultrabooks for business in 2014. He’s also part-way through our series on the best smartphones currently on the market for businesses. Davies is testing every single device on the market – and we mean really putting it through its paces – so that you don’t have to. Just read his review and you’ll be ready to make your next tech purchase with confidence. His day job for an IT services firm is proof he’s got the technical chops for reviewing devices, and his artful photography for each post show that he’s got the passion for it too.

Andrew Dillane is the CIO of Randstad Canada, so you know he’s got to be a gadget geek too. Dillane was even a past-president of the CIO Association of Canada, so you might say he’s a leader among gadget lovers. He’s also got tons of leadership experience in general and is often in positions where he’s collaborating with other top-level executives or is sitting on panels that judge other leaders for awards shows – like this year’s Ingenious Awards. Dillane recently stopped by the IT World Canada office and shared some great insights on leadership at the top levels of business.

We appreciate the story of the group of entrepreneurs at Clipless. So far they’ve got a successful Kickstarter campaign and a stint at Oshawa-based incubator Spark Centre under their belt. And soon, they plan to help you keep your smartphone on your belt. Clipless’ magnetic docks look so handy that you’ll want to imagine putting them all around your environment to hold your smartphone or tablet in useful places – above the counter in the kitchen, on your car’s dashboard, or wherever. The fact these mounts can be NFC-enabled to trigger your phone to automatically enter a hands-free mode when you’re driving makes this accessory even more appealing.
