Shiny Poll: Is social networking making us liars? Yay or nay?

Have you ever written a status update for Facebook or Twitter only to delete it before publishing because it didn't sound cool enough?

Nineties Flashback: Why Pagers are cool

Zara Rabinowicz Writes... Go with the flow they say, and that has brought us into this glitzy technology filled media age, where if it isn’t walking talking Homer Sapiens it’s proposing via a LCD ring box or cavorting on the latest night vision webcam. What happened to old fashioned conversations, gadgets that were useful as…

Old skool Yay or Nay Wednesday: the Swarovski DS Lite

We haven't had a good Yay or Nay here in a while, and nothing divides people like religion Swarovski. Personally, I freakin' love these things - who knew Mario looked so good in crystal form?

IFA 07: Sharp dancers singing the hilarious Aquos song

Only in Germany could a company get away with something so cheesy as four brightly-clad dancers singing along to a ditty about a TV range.

Yay or Nay: Are you worried about your online privacy?

We've all heard lots about how long Google stores your searches for, and there's been plenty of reactions from other search engines to assure us they are the better option.

Yay or Nay Wednesday: To WiFi or not to WiFi?

We've ummed and ahhed over wireless devices... but what we want to know now is do you think it's safe? We heard about the BBC report and subsequent Guardian debunking.

Yay or Nay Wednesday (in time for May): Dual format Bluray HD-DVD Players

We reported on the launch back in January, and LG are now formally announcing that the BH100 dual Bluray HD-DVD player will hit UK shops in May. It will not be a particularly economical proposition, with a recommended retail price of £1000. Last time we contemplated MySpace. The survey overwhelmingly said Nay. So it seems…

Yay or Nay Wednesday – wireless devices

What do you think of wireless devices? Like all gadgets, wireless devices - which can be keyboards, mice, headsets and so on - have their good points - no wires being the obvious one since it means no tangling or fraying cables.
