There have been some important changes to the LoveFilm free trial that Freebiejeebies have been promoting. Basically the free trial no longer exists but has been replaced with two other offers which are:
Get 2 months LOVEFiLM subscription for the price of 1 month.
This is a great offer and will allow your referrals to really get the benefit of the service that LOVEFiLM provides. The offer will credit as pending within the normal time (a few hours tops). The approval for this offer will occur just after the end of the 2nd month, when the user has paid for a third month subscription. So to recap, the referral will have to sign up to the "2 months for the price of 1" offer, and then stay with LOVEFiLM for at least another paid month (which would be their 3rd month), and the credit will be approved subject to the normal procedures. The pending period for this offer is therefore around the 8-9 week mark.
2 Months Up Front
Pay for 2 months up front for quick approval.
This offer is here to satisfy those referrals that want to be approved quicker. It requires that they sign up to LOVEFiLM for 2 months on one of the unlimited packages which cost £9.99 or more per month. Once payment has been authorised and a DVD has been received then the pending credit will be approved within a week in most cases.
So there you go. If you're going to be signing up for a LoveFilm subscription anyway you might as well try and get yourself some freebies at the same time.

It's got to be the hottest gadget on the planet and it can be yours for as little as 21 referrals. Think about that. Just get 21 of your mates to hire some DVD's for FREE and you've got youself an iPhone 4. When you put it like that, it's really not a lot is it.
Well, we've been using the mighty mouse ever since it came out and love it. It's great for expose and dashboard, and looks great. However, there is one problem with it, and that's the constant failure of the ball. Every single day we have to try clean it out with some paper or roll it around on a clean sheet of A4 to try to get it working again and frankly enough is enough.
So for only 3 referrals we cashed in some greens and ordered one. And my word is this thing awesome. Ok, so there aren't the side buttons that can show the desktop and dashboard but we've heard of a piece of software that can enable 4 finger swipes on it so that it functions in the same way.
Such a relief to get rid of that damm ball!!

Then look no further than the iCade. Simply plug your iPad into it and you've got full control of pacman or asteroids using the joystick and buttons.
Man, this makes us yearn for 10p arcades after school, cramming into the corner shop to play for hours.
Isn't it strange, the preoccupation we have with bringing outdated technology into the 21 st century. The iPad is a revolution...pacman is old, but an enduring classic. Would the original programmer have dreamt that all these years later his game would be on the most revolutionary piece of tech on the planet.

Well it's finally here. After months, nay years of speculation by the apple fan base Steve Jobs announced the latest Apple must have, the iPad - Apple's first foray into the tablet market. Pitched squarely as a bridge between the iPhone and MacBook range it features a 9.7-inch, 1024 x 768 display and 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB capacities.
So far only a US price scheme has been announced: $499, $599, and $699 for the varying capacity models without 3G, and $629, $729, and $829 with 3G.
The iPad comes with some accessories including:
1. A dock with a mechanical keyboard that allows the iPad to be displayed upright. Users can then type as they would on a laptop. A handy little add on if you want the practicality of a tablet but need to write a few notes.
2. Another is a nice black case which can be folded back to provide an elevated view for watching movies or typing on the virtual keyboard.
So is it the holy grail that we've all been waiting for? Well, you decide.
People have already been commenting about the size of the exterior bezel, but I feel that's there to stop your thumb from accidentally tripping the touchscreen.
Also there is a distinct lack of multi-tasking. The iPad is one application at a time which in today's multi-tasking world is a complete oversight. It doesn't support flash either so a large proportion of web sites won't work.
That aside, it looks great. If you just want to sit on your sofa at night and surf the net whilst your woman is watching Desperate Housewives then this surely is exactly what you're looking for. It's small enough to carry with you, easy to use, no clunky keyboards just elegant simplicity - the Apple standard.
If you want a serious multi-tasking, do all machine get a free Macbook here.
The iPad will sell and it will sell well. It may be the most important product Apple has released onto the world. Despite it's faults, I am salivating at the prospect of it coming to the UK and am likely to sell my son in order to get one.
We're getting teased with more and more mock ups (as in the one above) of this fabled device as well as specifications. New updates include:
1. It may be up to 10" in diameter
2. Probably going to compete with the kindle in the eBook stakes
3. It will run iPhone apps(probably)
It's possible that His Jobsness is going to unveil this at the September keynote address. Steve has been solely concerned with the tablet's production and finalisation sources have said, much as he was in the run up to the introduction of the iPhone.
Rumour mills are rife with speculations that the next generation iMac will have two new "compelling" features. However, these sources and rumours don't provide anything more than a faint suggestion as to what these features might actually be.
Bloggers have been posting their wish lists and top of the pile seems to be the inclusion of Blu-ray - something which has been shunned by Steve Jobs.
The other most asked for option from the mac pac is an iMac with a matte screen - something I think all designers would welcome.
There is further speculation that the iMac could see a physical redesign to its enclosure, bringing it more into line with the 24" LED monitors. However, we feel that the monitors followed the iMac's lead on that one. Whether this update makes it into the next release of the iMac is to be seen but we're awaiting with baited breath what Jonathan Ives can give us this time.

Well, hurrah I hear you cry. "At last" from another corner of the net. Apple are going end their exclusivity deal with mobile carrier O2 this September. Good news for people waiting to get the 3GS.
Well not exactly. It will only be the older 3G version which gets unlocked - the 3GS will still be exclusively O2's.
This all means a good deal for us punters unhappy with the extortionate prices that O2 and Apple have drawn up. I'm pretty sure Orange and T-Mobile will undercut and have cutomers migrate over.
This isn't new for the rest of mainland Europe, they've had laws in place restricting the monopoly since inception but the good ole UK needs to take it's time thinking these things through!!
All together now - HUZZAH!!
Apple's legal department has apparently contacted Microsoft's legal department in a bid to stop them from showing anymore "laptop hunter" ads. The ad's show ordinary folk's given the task of finding a laptop within a given budget and if they find one they get to keep it. They all look at the Macbook range and up and decide that they can't justify the cost.
Pretty sure Microsoft aren't going to stop running them though because they have Apple on the ropes. The premium has always been justified and Apple don't usually react to competitor marketing in this way so perhaps they've hit a raw nerve?
Another announcement at WWDC was that Snow Leopard, Apple's 6th incarnation of OS X, will begin shipping in September for only a $29 upgrade from Leopard. Users running Tiger will need to fork out $169 for a box set which includes Snow Leopard, iLife '09, and iWork '09.
News is though that the OS WILL require a mac with an Intel chip much to the hopes of some that it would support PowerPC chips. The full list of requirements is:
- Mac computer with an Intel processor
- 1GB of memory
- 5GB of free disk space
- DVD drive for installation
The one we've all been waiting for. The iPhone 3GS was announced at WWDC yesterday and is going to hit our shelves and wallets on the 19th June.
Physically identical to the current iPhone 3G, the new 3GS will be available in black or white and will be $199 for 16 GB models and $299 for 32 GB models.
New features include a digital compass, Video Recording, Voice Control, 3 megapixel camera with autofocus and faster internet speeds.
It's a sweet looking piece of kit and we can't wait to get our hands on one.

Apple updated it's aluminum 13"MacBook and brought it under theumbrella of it's bigger brothers - now officially a MacBook Pro. It has the same non-replaceable battery as the others in the line and adds a FireWire 800 port as well as an SD card slot (professional SLR cameras still use compact flash so this seems to us to be a feature aimed towards the 'prosumer' or amateur).
All models have a backlit keyboard and harddrive and RAM options are maxed out at 500gb and 8GB respectively.
Apple officially updated their line of MacBook Air laptops at WWDC yesterday and discounted the entry level price somewhat considerably.
The clock speeds for both models have increased from 1.6GHz and 1.8GHz to 1.86GHz and 2.13GHz respectively. The prices for both models have dropped by $300 and $700 to $1499 and $1799 respectively (£1149 and £1349)

Apple fans will have no doubt heard about the rumours of an Apple Tablet circulating on the net but news is that it's not due to arrive until early 2010.
The reason for the delay is the complexity of the operating system apparently which is a hybrid of the iPhone OS and OSX.
It should be price around the $600 mark which puts it squarely between the iPhone and the entry level Macbook.
News hot off the press points to the new iPod Touch and Nano both getting a camera in September. This brings the touch ever closer to the iPhone in specs. Indeed there is even an application called TruPhone which turns your iPod Touch into a phone provided you are in a wifi area.
A camera on the nano though is somewhat of a surprise. Perhaps Apple are positioning them as multimedia devices as we've heard talk of a 'killer video feature'.
The iPhone is said to be keeping it's current shape and size despite rumours telling otherwise.
