Manufacturers were kind of slow to jump on the whole Blu Ray player bandwagon but it seems they don’t want to be left out in the cold again with 3D TV as pretty much everything at the moment is being created in 3D. Companies are clearly catching on to the general excitement and stir that is being created by the emerging technology. What’s more, companies like Panasonic, Sony, and now LG are even managing to combine the two technologies in some inspiring pieces of home entertainment kit. The LG BX580 does exactly that because...

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...

Vodafone has announced that it is offering three new smartphone handsets to its customers – the Blackberry Pearl 3G, the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro, and the LG Optimus. Prices will vary although there is no actual pay as you go price plan details available for any of the three models as yet so it’s possible that they will be contract only handsets. However with two Android handsets and the Blackberry it does offer a good choice of reasonable phones. The Blackberry Pearl 3G is actually a bit of a step away from the usual business...

Clearly, more and more people and companies are attempting to create the next big storm and make their millions and while some of the more recent Internet websites and services may well turn out to be quite ingenious and decent money spinners for their creators there are some sites that just sound a bit too weird. Rent A Friend is one such site, although to be fair to them while there aren’t so many friends available in the UK yet, the service is quite popular in the US and Japan. The name Rent A Friend tells you pretty much all...

The market for ebooks and e-readers is one which has great potential. The amount of people preferring to ditch the old paper books and pick up their electronic readers is seeing the sales of both books and readers increase daily, so it is no surprise to see those crafty electronic giants Sharp muscle their way into the market with their own model. Sharp tell us that the readers will have a new format, known as the next-generation XMDF, which will enable “easy viewing of digital contents including video and audio, and allows automatic...

The Rock Band franchise has become one of the biggest names in the games industry and in its various incarnations and numerous spin off titles it has created one of the greatest and most loved games, especially in the music games genre. Along with Guitar Hero it essentially helped sporn an entire series of games and through offering numerous peripherals and the incredible line up of downloadable content we’re willing to bet it makes Harmonix an absolute packet. The good news is that the next instalment, catchily titled Rock Band...

Hamburgers that jump out of the freezer into the frying pan? Cans of lager that open themselves, vomit on the floor and abuse passers by? Anyway, while some people (me) sits and scratch their heads at a world gone mad other people (Brother Industries) only go and make it madder by inventing crazy stuff like vibrating, self charging batteries. How do they work? How on earth would I know. Oh, ok I’ll go and investigate then….. It’s seems they’ve put an electromagnetic induction generator in the battery sized generators,...

The line-up of new cars for July is a shortlist of supercars, albeit a very short list of supercars, plus a Skoda. OK, so the 1.4 litre Skoda might be sloughtly out of its depth in the company of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS but according to T3 you shouldn’t underestimate it and at £15,700 it is without doubt the most affordable of the line up by some considerable margin. Porsche has released a strainge lineup of vehicles lately including the Cayenne which has at least cleaned up its act and almost made roadworthy 4×4 vehicles something...
