Some forgotten 90s corporation is suing all the big lads- a bit ridiculous?

Remember Creative? The lads who battled it out with iRiver for supremacy in a late 90s MP3 player war worth HUNDREDS of dollars? Well they are now attempting to get back in the game- but not as a manufacturer. You see, they're going on a suing spree!

Sony XPERIA E5 Announced: Hopes for better Xperience??

It's fair to say the budget Sony Xperia E line hasn't had the greatest of times. The Sony XPERIA E was a bit crap, the E2 didn't exist and the E4 ran Gingerbread. But can this shitty classic line of mobile phones turn it around with their newest release? I, for one, doubt it. OBJECTION!

Gen 8.5 (Or gen 3DO?)

Who will be the next leader of the home console market?
Will it be current market leader Sony?, Three time second place Microsoft? Or the incompetent mario-lovers underdog Nintendo?

New Panasonic Fans!

Fans may seem to some like a cheap, throwaway device: buy one at the local Wal-Mart and use it for but a few months before throwing it away. You wouldn't want to throw the latest fan from Panasonic away, however, as it costs a massive US$920.

Philips lighting division floated for first time

Any electrician will tell you that bulbs are tubers planted in the soil. The things you screw into light fittings are lamps. The Dutch have form in both. The technology conglomerate Philips is (with Osram and GE) one of three companies that once ruled the lamps industry. Now it is doing some transplanting. On Monday, it said that a stronger market meant an IPO of its lighting unit was more likely than a sale.
