Slimmer and greener than ever

They've got big screens, and they're super flat. While they probably won't get as much attention as the iPhone, Apple's new iMacs are pretty cool in their own right.

Pets: 'I'm about to buy a golden retriever. I don't want a dog that's disobedient and leaves surprises around the house!'

Most recent purchase: A pair of Jack Purcell Converse. 'They're the same as the ones worn by Will Smith in I-Robot.'

Rude display forces surfer to clean up his act

A question arrived from a reader who thinks his computer has been attacked. It is an all-too-common story.

It seems he stumbled on a few webpages that specialise in the display of beauty, particularly that of the human body. It is probably better if we do not examine this in great detail.
