Don't forget the spoken words

In the 21st century, science and technology changes with each new day. It makes things convenient and efficient. Students learn computer so that they can get a well-paid job.

But, is it really good for us?

when your number's up

'Everybody was kung fu fighting. Those cats were fast as lightning.' The opening lyrics to Carl Douglas' one-hit disco wonder and the word 'cheesy' spring to mind when you play Zendoku for the PSP from publisher Eidos.

digi-quest

I am interested in the game Sudoku and I thought it might be a fun way to spend time while travelling to work. Is there a place where I can get some software that will run on my phone? Do I need to be aware of anything special? Do such games run on any handset?

Sharing interests brings people together

My brother recently asked me to do a game of Sudoku with him. He isn't crazy about maths; I'm amazed he 's become so interested in the numbers puzzles.

I seldom talked to him because I'm usually asleep by the time he comes home from work. But doing Sudoku together has given us a chance to communicate. I enjoy chatting with him.

Have your say

Graffiti is an art form

I read an article in the Young Post headed 'Writing on the wall' about graffiti (August 28).

I agree with the writer that graffiti is no longer an underground activity.

I think it is a form of art. Graffiti is a medium for expressing one's creativity and personality.
