Choosing the ideal location for your next break in the sun normally involves a quick rifle through travel agent magazines, a search of comparison sites or simply placing the names of a few tropical getaways into a hat and taking your chances. However, for the more passive travellers there is an even easier way to plan your holiday itinerary without putting too much strain on your grey matter; simply switch on the box.
Once again, news has reached me of a new incarnation for three dimensional technology format but what exactly are developers planning on doing with it now?
Well, with the most common problem associated with 3D viewing being those awful glasses (I personally prefer the retro style ones which featured one blue and one red lens), Sony have announced a brand new accessory to enable 3D viewing without donning those unflattering specks.
Well, that's Easter done for another year; the four day weekend just flies by, doesn't it? But on return to work on Tuesday morning I was scanning the papers and I saw research that's been conducted by Carphone Warehouse into the cost of mobile phones in the UK and the long and short of it is that we are losing a staggering £5 billion a year.
The research went into more detail saying that we could all save as much
as £194 a year if we just spent a few carefully planned minutes doing
some research into what the best deal is for us as individuals. Of the

I mean, I can only hide the look of disappointment on my face so much when I unwrap a present to find the original Nintendo Wii Remote instead of the Wii Remote Plus.

In Apple's latest attempt to have you pay money to stand in queue for hours, the company unveiled the new Macbook Air at its Back to the Mac event. Unlike the previous Macbook Air, which for all of its manila folder-fitting thinness still managed to pack a hard drive inside, the new one takes a page out of the iPad's book and relies solely on flash memory. According to Apple CEO Steve Jobs, the new Macbook Air is "like nothing [Apple has] ever created before." Except, you know, for the old Macbook Air. Which, incidentally, happened to be very functionally similar to the regular Macbooks. And the old Macbooks in turn were sort of like portable versions of the iMac. So it's actually a lot like things they've created before.
