Good news ladies: thanks to the rapid evolution of mobile phones, the number of British men leaving Christmas shopping to the last minute is poised to drop dramatically this year.
Though they are typically known to leave shopping until Christmas Eve, this year men are using their mobile phones to help them get organised.
And it looks like the move will pay off, with research commissioned by online payment service Paypal predicting that the number of men waiting until the last minute could halve.
With more than one in ten British men saying they have already bought or plan to buy gifts using their mobile device this Christmas and almost half (46%) browsing for goods on their phones, Paypal has forecast that the last minute dashes to the shops among men will drop from 14% on Christmas Eve in 2011 to just 7% in 2012.

Well, yes but, as a nation we still dispose of nearly 300 million tonnes of waste. It's completely unsustainable so we need to do more to help both the environment and, consequently, our wallets.

We are not very good, as humans, at waiting for stuff especially when it comes to nice new tech like a smartphone.

Both HTC and Sony have far more advanced mobiles on the market, like the One X
just released by HTC and the eagerly awaited Galaxy S3 handset which,
by all accounts, will make the 4S as about current in the world of
mobile technology as Dallas is in the world of soaps!
So, call me
skeptical but news has been 'leaked' to Korean IT News about the
upcoming iPhone 5, which was rumoured to be released this summer. The
leak suggests that the phone will be made of something called 'liquid
metal', an alloy of zirconium, titanium, nickel, copper and a whole load
of other stuff that anyone outside of a chemistry class wouldn't really
I was really surprised to hear the latest research that says teens prefer texting to emailing or speaking on a phone. My surprise was nothing to do with the actual results, though. It was more to do with the fact that good money was wasted performing such pointless research when really, all anyone needs to do is open their eyes to see teens are in a permanent state of text.
Everyone knows that my generation has been brought up on technology
and most of us can type out a text message in less time than it used to
