The rumours that students are a bunch of lazy shirkers could well be true and rather than sitting in front of the TV watching Countdown or at the student union topping up on cheap booze, the average student now spends the equivalent of a whole working day on social networking sites like Facebook. In contrast, the 7.5 hours they spend networking is only marginally less than the typical 9.5 hours a week spent doing coursework. If you’re looking for the ideal source of procrastination then Facebook is apparently it and nearly two thirds...

Google itself aims to release a touch screen tablet PC just in time for Christmas apparently (in the US at least). The tablet, which will be manufactured by HTC and will be released on the 26th November. Obviously it will be using the new Google Chrome operating system and other sketchy/leaked/assumed (delete as you see fit) details include the fact that it will have a multi-touch screen and will use the Tegra 2 chip from Nvidia. Whether it will dethrone the iPad remains to be seen but is unlikely given the incredible popularity of that...

Councils across the country may be facing the harsh reality of budget cuts and spending cuts imposed by the new coalition government but that hasn’t stopepd Leicester council from saying that they will spend £40,000 ensuring that every council member in the area has their own iPad.

One councillor claimed that it helped...

There is a plethora of laptops around at the moment. This ASUS X5AE-SX002V is a mid range laptop, it has mid range specification, mid range looks but has an entry level price.

Apple announced huge sales and profit figures for the last quarter and put most of this down to the incredible success of the iPad as well as increased iPhone sales and growth in virtually every other area of their business. Those on the outside may well believe that the reason Apple has managed to hock more than 3.25 million iPads is because there is virtually no competition whatsoever and they’d probably be right, at least partially. What’s more, companies seem to be pretty slow on the uptake as there is still little in the...

Are you aware that until the 19th century the self same Great Pyramid was the tallest man made construction in the world? Good grief, I hear you say, I was quite interested in the HP G61-410SA but now that he’s gone all Egypt crazy I wouldn’t mind hearing his opinion on the legacy of Ramses II. Well, I am sorry my Egyptology loving friends, I was only using the pyramid as a convoluted...
