As you know, Giz UK and its readers have been selected by O2 to help test their 4G network. For anyone doubting 4G's awesome speeds, take a pew and watch our video, which shows Sam and I (plus O2's Rob) pit a 4G dongle against a 3G dongle in various tests. We may not be as camera-ready as The Gadget Show's presenters, but please try and remember the 4G network is the true star of this show.

There's no two ways around it: Photographers are a rebellious breed of inventors, tinkerers, and ad-hoc engineers. Or rather, they used to be. Being able to buy just about anything you could possibly need off-the-shelf is a relatively new development in photography. But just because you can spend your hard-earned money buying nearly everything your heart desires, it doesn't mean that you should...
Let’s face it, home Wi-Fi isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You can get all sorts of interference from nearby devices and we’re still not entirely sure that we won’t all have golf ball-sized tumours from it in a few years.
