The entire world has got iPad fever! Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but for the sake of this opening paragraph, let’s all indulge ourselves in that mass delusion.
It's an epic film, laden with eleven Oscars and one of the biggest box-office returns in history. It also has a running time of biblical proportions, and many backsides were irretrievably numbed by the experience. But do you really need to see Titanic in glorious, stereoscopic 3D? Director James Cameron thinks you do.
Apparently ripping-off Pictionary is big business. Not content with pulling in a Premiership footballer-like £63,000 a day, the developer of the Draw Something app sensation sold-out to the copycat gaming juggernaut Zynga for a rumoured £130 million.

You might not have been all that psyched by Panasonic’s first out-of-Asia phone offering, the Eluga, but it’s coming to the UK in April. It might be running Gingerbread on release, but it is slim and waterproof, which should give you one less thing to worry about.

You're gonna want to turn the lights down low and pour some Champagne before you hit play on this one. Think, Barry White crooning to a unicorn on a rainbow — in space.
Parametric speakers aren't exactly new, but this Kickstarter idea is tiny and practical. The Soundlazer delivers a focused beam of audio in a single direction. Theoretically, you could point it at yourself, and nobody around you would hear your embarrassing music at all.
