Christmas is often a time when the desperately lonely consider taking their own lives. Harsh, but true. So instead of taking a fistful of tablets, perhaps they should think about buying one single computery tablet instead.
That's never been more affordable than it is today, thanks to Currys, who are knocking out the BlackBerry Playbook in its 16GB incarnation for a piffling £169 right now. It hasn't set the world alight, but it's a perfectly decent piece of kit for that price. Get the 64GB version for £329 and you could be eligible for a free £50 voucher to spend at a later date.
