New figures show that Apple’s new iPad is costing customers in the UK far more than their international contemporaries. European prices for the iPad are much higher than in other regions of the globe and the UK is being hit even harder with high prices for the must-have gadget of the day. ...

The iPad is launching in the UK tomorrow, the 28th of May, after high demand in the US caused its release to be put back until Apple had enough units to support an international roll out. The iPad was sold to over one million customers after it arrived in the US last month and its sales figures are still going strong, with about 200,000 being sold every seven days. The base model of the iPad, which supports Wi-Fi connectivity, but not the 3G networking necessary for mobile broadband access, will be priced at around £429. Rumours suggest...

An electric scooter which is the first of its kind to come with a removable battery pack has arrived in the UK. Manufactured by Econogo, the scooter has a detachable battery which uses the lithium ion technology found in most modern portable devices. Econogo is based in the UK and the YoGo scooter’s detachable battery represents a significant update from the previous generation of electric scooters. This is because rather than having to bring electricity to the scooter, you can now take its battery directly to the power source. Finding...

Apple has proved sceptics wrong and has managed to create yet another best selling gadget in the iPad, with one million of the devices flying from the shelves in its first month on sale. The iPad was seen by many as a fairly odd device, offering what looked to be a much larger alternative to the iPhone, but consumers have clearly fallen for Apple’s uniquely beautiful aesthetic touches and user-friendly interface once again. The iPad could well be the device that finally brings the concept of eBooks to a mainstream audience, as Apple...

The coffee table that integrates some kind of media compatibility is not a new idea, but the Horus is one that takes iPod compatibility to a whole new and rather obscure level. The table itself gets its ancient Egyptian look because it is held aloft by a large concrete pyramid, with the tip appearing to protrude through the glass surface to house the iPod Touch or iPhone of your choice. The concrete is apparently some kind of high performance material and the speakers are integrated into it below the surface. There is a blue illumination...

Apple’s iPad has only been on sale for a few days in the USA, but already the oversized iPhone has been flying off the shelves. Apple has reported that more than 300,000 iPads were sold in the first 24 hours and since then many thousands more have been picked up. There had been fears that the iPad would not be as big a seller as the iPhone, but the initial pre-orders and launch day sales from Apple’s premiere retail outlets have shown that there is still plenty of love out there amongst gadget-lovers and consumers for Steve...

Apple’s latest uber-gadget has emerged in the USA and over in the UK every tech site and gadget-loving celebrity has been getting their hands on some import models. When the iPad launched on Saturday, new owners were not just handed their device and shoved out the door. At Apple’s retail outlets they were helped to customise their iPad experience by staff. Particularly keen consumers could even take a seminar as to how to unlock the iPad’s potential. There had been doubts that Apple could sell the iPad in the same numbers...

I logged into my twitter account and by the time I had read the first three comments at the top of the keyword list there were over 2000 more ready to be loaded. This mass tweeting continues as speculation grows over what has caused this problem and when the problem may end? Our questions to you are: How did this effect you? What do you think caused it? All comments are welcome so let’s have them ...
