Tesco getting into the tablet game seems like it's another 'me too' venture but the UK supermarket has a lot of positive things going for it. The price undercuts the Kindle Fire, the specs are pretty decent, and it has a lot of decent apps and services. It'll also throw in a HDMI cable so you can connect it to your TV. That's something the Nexus 7 doesn't offer and is great for new tablet users who want things running via their TVs.

Unlike Amazon, you'll actually be able to test the device in store and throw in your trolley for just £60 in ClubCard vouchers. Total impulse buy.
 
Tesco puts its name to a 7-inch budget tablet that you can buy with your Clubcard points... the Hudl. 
Not content with flogging other people's smartphones and tablets, now UK supermarket chain Tesco has become the latest to launch one of its own. Priced

When you put the words "quantum" and "supercomputer" together, things get really nerdy. However, I can only see this being a good thing, especially if researchers can start using it to help fight disease and model weather patterns etc.

So, LG's supply chain sucks. Google's customer service is poor also. If you tried to order a Nexus 4 and failed, this explains why.

+Al Sutton I think it does, in part. Cobley takes it on the chin with his comments. He acknowledges how poor they have been, but I don't think that's enough to repair the damage.

Home Alone is free on iTunes today. If you don't own it, download the 12 Days of Gifts app, redeem the download and have it saved in the bank for Christmas 2014. Simples.

People in the UK may soon allow us to exit their mobile contracts mid-term if operators decide they want to hike prices. Good move Ofcom.

Nice little update for Google+ users before Christmas, focusing on Android, photos, events and Hangouts. However, there's no reference to iOS or whether the features will come to the iPhone or iPad.
