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?

Though we're not quite yet into December, it's probably about time to start thinking about what gifts you're going to pick up for your friends and family.

This Wednesday, Amazon is set to reveal their own entry into the tablet market – the aptly named Kindle Fire. Get it? Because kindle, fire, Kindle Fire?
If you, for whatever reason, never took the advice we dispensed several months ago about getting Steam, you may have just missed out on one of the best gaming sales of the year. As we noted, Valve, the company behind the Steam platform, is notorious for offering its customers unbeatable discounts almost year round, in addition to providing them with top quality games. However, around the holidays, Valve tends to go overboard with its deals, and this year was no exception.
