Apple is due to unveil the iPhone 5 at an event on September 12th with the phone most likely going on sale on the 21st. It is still unclear whether Apple plans to call it the iPhone 5 (this will be the sixth iPhone) although it does seem like the most likely name at the moment and the one that most people are rolling with.
Whether it ends up being the iPhone 5, iPhone 6 or just the "new" iPhone, one thing is clear: this will be the biggest design refresh since 2010's iPhone 4.
As older iPhone models were launched mid-summertime there are currently many iPhone contracts coming to an end. If you fall into this group you may be asking yourself, "should I buy an iPhone 4S now or wait another month for the iPhone 5?"
Will the iPhone 5 offer any major advantages over the iPhone 4S and will the iPhone 4S become cheaper when the next iPhone is launched?
Looking back to 2011, many people delayed buying a new iPhone as they waited for Apple's next release. Although the iPhone 4 was available, there was a lot of reluctance to purchase it in the fear that it would become obsolete within the space of a few months. As many iPhone contracts came to an end, people patiently waited for a few extra months for the next model to be announced.

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
£5 billion extra charges, £174 million comes from charges for accessing
data from the internet via a network. Outrageous, surely?
As someone who self-identifies as a geek, I completely understand just how difficult it can be shopping for one. We kind of have a tendency to be somewhat lacking in communication skills yet at the same time very particular about the things we like, which makes the already frustrating process of gift buying all the more complicated. 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. So, that said, here's a short list of some surefire gifts to get for the geek in your life, each priced at £100 or less.

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.
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.

Here at Savoo, we're always on the lookout for the best deals available. Our visitors will often ask us about laptops because let's face it- their relative price makes them a fairly large investment. This means that, before purchasing one, people are interested in knowing the answers to questions such as, "What's the difference between a business and a consumer model?", "Which one is the best?", and perhaps most importantly, "Where can I get the best deal?"
Well as it turns out, Dell have gone a step beyond what other
manufacturers typically offer their customers by introducing this new,

of one of its newest models, the Latitude E6510, and decide for yourself
whether it's for you. Click here to check it out, and also see our thoughts on the Latitude E6510 below:
