Thought about how much I use Wikipedia, how hugely useful I find it and what a staggering resource it is. Even for things like helping the kids explore homework subjects. I thought about how much I spend on things like LoveFilm / Spotify and realised it easily qualified for a donation. If only I knew something worth actually contributing to the site as well...

Will definitely get one, but when kids expect computer programs to be like XBox games how can you get them excited in this? How can they feel a sense of achievement printing "hello world" rather than making a black hawk swoop from the sky?

Here is another one. It would appear that Apple have a patent on copy/paste on a mobile. Pathetic. Unless it is reported wrong here.

Really BT? Maps that show different detail at different scales - wow that hasn't been around for centuries nor require a brain the size of a maggot to work out. Apps that are aware of the cost of different networks and make choices accordingly. I remember that from Microsoft MQ about a decade ago, which was no doubt far from an innovation then, where you assigned a relative cost with each network route. BT don't embarrass the "B" in BT. Google - please give them a legal slap.

At pcworld the anti theft tethering of tablets really interferes with getting a real feel of them. The Archos 80 seemed good but felt a bit placky compared to the Samsung and Asus tablets.

I like the way you can add 3G to the Archos tablet later http://www.archos.com/products/gen9/archos_80g9/index.html?country=gb&lang=en Is this the best 8 inch Media Tablet already running ICS? Clearly not the hardcore full-on tablet of the Transformer.

Surprised that Microsoft were still so high on the list and weren't overtaken by Oracle years ago. Surprised at Google though.
