  • Opinion: Tokyo flooded as Second Life suffers climate change

  • Opinion: Bullet-proof iPod saved my life – the truth

    Everyone knows it’s a must-have for music fans, but now it's being put forward as an essential life-saving accessory for soldiers. Apple’s iPod apparently saved the life of an American soldier serving in Iraq, if pictures posted on Flickr are anything to be believed.

  • Opinion: PlayStation 3 sales plummet. When's the price cut?

  • Opinion: Vista users: have you been deceived?

    Even Microsoft admits that Windows Vista Home Basic is the poor cousin of Home Premium, and the Vista edition most people would want to avoid.

  • Opinion: Why UK iTunes is worth extra 12p per track

    I'm surprised that Interpol didn't seize Apple CEO Steve Jobs as soon as he touched foot on British soil, and clap his casually dressed arms in irons.
