Google may soon add the option to buy copies of films through its Google Play Store, with the search giant apparently talking to Hollywood studios about the likelihood of being able to offer digital downloads of titles for its users to keep.
If you're rich enough to do your gadget shopping at Harrods rather than picking up half-broken things from eBay and trying to fix them yourself with masking tape and elastic bands, you may have the budget to buy Globe-Trotter's fancy case (oh, and it comes with Fujifilm's X-Pro1 camera, too).
Microsoft is apparently planning to launch two new Xbox versions in the coming years. The first will be a cheaper unit with Kinect support, designed to keep the new "casual" market happy. Then the more powerful, proper Xbox 360 follow-up will arrive much later, to keep the "core" element amused.
Yep, 8-bit pretty much makes everything better, including Mad Men. Here’s a new YouTube choose-your-own-adventure game to waste a good few minutes of your time on this Friday morning. Don’t forget; it doesn’t make a blind bit of difference what you choose, just make sure you’re drunk off your arse on scotch – that’s the Mad Men way.
Poor old Jenna-Louise Coleman was launched into the spotlight yesterday, as the BBC announced she'd be the next platonic bit-on-the-side to team up with Dr Who in the mainstream children's drama. It didn't take long for Twitter spam bots to start firing out links to fake sex videos supposedly starring the actress.
The BBC is reshaping its mobile site, updating it for the latest generation of smartphones, shoving in some features like automatic location awareness that weren’t possible with the old design. It’s launched the revamp in beta to grab your feedback, but right now, like and good beta should be, it’s just a tad broken in some places.

For the first time in a while, Three hasn’t topped the most complained-about league table – this quarter it’s Orange. According to Ofcom it’s all because people really didn’t appreciate getting their bills hiked-up without the option to quit.
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. Now that’s what I call a good day’s earnings, especially after just six weeks in the App Store.
This bonkers retail experience has been spotted in China, offering would-be Android buyers a way to check out plenty of Google models in a completely pretend official Android shop. And it also sells some iPhones and iPads, because you've got to hedge your bets in these difficult times.
Troubled high street chain GAME has secured itself a bit of breathing space by voluntarily putting itself into administration, with the group buying another 10 days to put together some sort of emergency salvage operation.
Netflix has updated its iOS streaming app, adding in new HD graphics for those rich people who are currently using on of the new iPads to do their film streaming. Also, the company says it has "HD video to follow later" which is quite exciting, depending on how much later "later" is in Netflix's world.
Facebook has finally admitted that we don't really have much of an interest in the lives of the vast majority of our Facebook friends, and is adding a newer, easier way to dump masses of people out of your timeline without triggering the social nightmare of actually deleting them from your profile.
