The world wide web is host to roughly one gazillion computer-tonnes of
information (that's what information is measured in right?) and word on
the internet is that Apple has 'accidentally' leaked some details about
the new iPad to the public. Surely what has been shown is enough to get
everyone pumped for a completely new revolutionary device filled with
lots of neat gadgets that is completely worth the extra £100 or so in
comparison to the older iPads? Well... almost.
Don't get me wrong Apple fans, the information given so far has been
pretty good. A faster processor, higher resolution screen and the
installation of Siri isn't something to scoff at but to a student it
may not be enough to warrant the cost.

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. If you're anything like most other people, coming up with presents for everyone in your life is probably an unnecessarily difficult task. At least, it is for me somewhere near 90% of the time.
But, if you've got a tech nerd in your life, then you're in luck. For the next couple of weeks, I'll be putting together lists of the hottest products in gaming and tech for every budget. This week, you'll find some of the best things you can buy for £50 and under. It might be a bit hard finding products that fall within this range because, let's face it, gadgets are an expensive hobby. Still, if you know where to look, you'll find plenty of products that any tech geek would be glad to have.

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.
Anyone who's followed Stephen Fry as of late might be surprised to find out that he was in attendance at Microsoft's launch of the Windows Phone 7 in London. The actor, whose name is nearly as synonymous with Apple as the term iPod, assured fans that he was "not being paid to be [at the event]," and rather, was there simply because he was excited about the prospect of Microsoft producing a phone OS that for once wasn't a piece of turd. My words, not his.
Although the majority of the talk surrounding Apple as of late has been centred on the iPhone 4's various antenna issues, the company was, at least for a day, allowed a bit of reprieve from the public as they handed out free t-shirts to customers on August 7th. At the company's new flagship store in Covent Garden, London, thousands of people stood in queue to be among the select few who would receive a shirt commemorating the store's opening date and location.
While even the most ardent Apple supporters would admit that the free
shirts lack the flash of some of the company's more recent products
like the iPad and the aforementioned iPhone 4, many claimed that the
appeal of the shirts were due more to their limited numbers.
