      A great comedy for espicially teenagers. It cant be missed!

      The Inbetweeners is a new great comedy aimed at mostly at teenagers. Its a fresh new British comedy and Is one of the best that's come from E4. It centers around Will who is a private school geek and he has had to move to a comprehensive school. He makes new friends in Jay, Simon and Neil. And basically there main objective is trying to get laid and impress as many girls as they can but it very rarely happens!. It really is a brilliant comedy and every episode never fails to make me laugh out loud!. The scripts are done brilliantly so thumps up to channel 4 and E4 that. You rarely lose interest in every episode because their very gripping and you just want to know whats going to happen next. The inbetweeners never fails to put a smile on my face even when im in the worse of moods!. Its recommended my me!

      A great game for your iphone and for 59p its a bargain

      As one of the longest running most popular Apps on the iTunes App Store and subtitled 'BE WARNED: Insanely Addictive!', DoodleJump has a lot to live up to. Taking a similar approach as LittleBigPlanet on the ps3, its entire in-game style is that of manmade creativity, in this case doodles. Your alien character, platforms and enemies are all hand-drawn style creating a child-like simplicity to a challenging mobile game. No instructions are necessary, as when something confusing happens, little doodle notes appear drawn into the background, adding to the theme of the game.

      Players jump upwards from platform to platform, dodging enemies and tears in the paper background with the additional aid of springs, helihats, springboots and rocket boosters. With regular updates such as new items, enemies, challenges and styles, DoodleJump offers a new experience every time it is played. The only downside being that due to its control system working on the accelerometer, you'll find you'll have to sit up in bed to play this one

      A must for any MJ fan

      Released in 1988, Bad is a historic album of michael jacksons. It came with very high expectations after the Thriller album. Many people will argue that Bad Matched Thriller with hit singles coming out of it such as "Man in the Mirror" which has been an iconic song for Michael Jackson. "Smooth Criminal" which I regard as being one of Michael Jacksons Best. but the negatives of the bad album when comparing it to "Thriller" are tracks 3-6 which are " Speed Demon", "Liberian Girl", "Just good friends" and "Another part of me" which compared to the rest of the albums songs, they are poor. Instead of spreading the songs around the album all the worse songs are together which isn't right. Ovarall though, this album is iconic and the amount of amazing songs on this album is massive. Bad should be bought even or you're not a MJ fan, it's that good.

        A all round good stylish touchscreen

        after recently upgraded to a iphone, I owned a nokia 5800 for the best part of 6 months. For the time I had it, it never let me down. It had a good battery life, which is superior to the iphone and for the features are great such as Wifi and the new Ovi app store. And the nokia 5800 is also reasonably cheap for a touchscreen smartphone. The negatives are that the phone isnt as responsive as, say, an iphone or an HTC hero and it freezes and locks sometimes. I found that a lot of the time when I loaded up the facebook app it frequently froze which has very annoying. Other good features are that the camera is decent, messaging on the touch screen keyboard is good, and with nokia you know you will get a good calling signal. Ovarall if you want a cheap touchscreen you could do much worse than the Nokia 5800.

        A recommended add on and great freeview tuner

        Ive always loved my playstation 3 but I loved it even more when I purshased Play tv on launch day. Its a great add-on to your PS3. The freeview tuner is great quality which upscales your standered definition picture to its best quality. I compared the quality against my samsung freeview and Play tv was far superior. The electronic programme guide(EPG) is also very slick and a joy to use. Play tv is also software upgradable meaning that it can be updated when new features become available and keeps the technology up to date.

        The pause and rewind function also works great as does recording a program. Another good feature is that you can transfer your recordings to the PS3 home menu (XMB) so its easier to access. Overall, if you have a PS3 and you're wanting to record and pause live freeview you could do much worse than play tv!.

        MJs Dangerous album will NOT disapoint!

        Released in 1991, Dangerous is the forth solo album of Michael Jackson after off the wall, thriller and bad. Dangerous was released at a time when Michael was undergoing speculation about his private life and Dangerous didn't get as much media attention as it deserved. When you listening to the album the whole way through it doesn't sound as good as Michaels previous albums but once the songs are listened to individually you start to realize that this album is up there with the best. Songs such as " Black or White", "Who is It" " Heal the world" "Jam" and "Dangerous" are amazing songs showcasing Jackson at his best. the song "Jam" is a personal favorite of my mine the funky beats make it a joy to listen to. But the so called "not as good songs" are also a credit to Jackson such as " Keep the Faith", " She Drives me wild" and " Give in to me" which go great with the album.

        A great look into MJs last concerts rehearsal.

        Myself being a big MJ fan, I was eager to see This is it at the cinema when it was released on the big screen. The film, itself, is put together brilliantly by Kenny Ortega. From the start, where Michael performs "U wanna be startin' Something" it instantly grips you to when it finishs with him performing "Man in the mirror. Its an insight into how the great man worked and prepared for such events. People have to remember though that this is MJ at 60%. he rarely tries go for the big notes, but still, MJ at 60% is arguably better than any of today's artists at 100%. The main highlights for me where the productions of the new "smooth criminal" and "Thriller" videos which are quite stunning.

        Everyone who watches "This is it" will agree with Michael Jackson and the inclusion of several special effects and videos that have never been tried before, this would of simply have been the greatest show on earth.

        When the film had finished I came away with a sense of sadness. Its hard to believe that the man has gone and secondly that he didnt get to do the concerts because they really would have been amazing.

        "This Is It" is highly recommended by me. Even if you weren't even keen on Michael Im sure you will enjoy it.

        The No.1 stop for bargains

        Ebay launched in 1995 and it has grown into the one of the most recognizable internet sites in the world. Many people revert to ebay nowadays to find the latest bargains rather than get off their bums and go to the high street. People find it much more convenient to just log onto ebay than go out shopping for it. But ebay is a great invention many sellers and buyers end up most of the time happy with the purchase and sales of items. almost everything is available on ebay, in my household if anything is needed to buy the first response someone comes out with is "look on ebay" and most of the time we find the item but most importantly, at a reasonable price. There are negatives about ebay though. Recently I purshased some new headphones from ebay and they ended up being fake counterfeit headphones after the seller said they were 100% Genuine. But that is the only problem Ive had over 5 years of buying and selling.

        A great album which cant be missed

        After the success of off the wall, there was big pressure for michael jackson to create another hit album. And he didn't disappoint with a album that sold over 100 million copies. Unlike artists albums off today, every song on thriller is great. from funky tracks like "U wanna be startin something" and good ballads like "the lady in my life" it is a joyful listening experience all round. The greatest song on this album, and maybe of all time, has got to be the brilliant "Billie jean" where a woman claims that Michael is the father of her child. other songs included are "Human nature" which go well with the tough rock song "Beat it" and the duet with Paul McCartney in "the girl is mine". Ovarall, theres know doubt that this album is one of the greatest ever created and even if your not a massive MJ fan it should be added to your collection.

          A must have for any MJ fan

          Michael jacksons last album is a great addition to any MJ fans collection. The stand out tracks are "You Rock my world" and "Butterflies", "Cry" and also "Threatened. The opening track "unbreakable" is a lively upbeat song which features the late Notorious BIG. It does drag on too much and ends up by the end getting quite boring but ovarall its a decent song. The main song which was also released as a single is the track "You Rock my world" which features also the great Chris Tucker. Its more like an "Off the Wall" track from the 1970s and proves to be an instant hit. You can notice though that jackson is not at his best and his voice strains in parts. There know doubt though that this album, compared to albums of todays artists, is brilliant with a range of songs from spooky songs like "Threatened" and love songs like "Heaven can wait".

          A great console. now even cheaper!

          Ever since I bought my playstation 3 it has been a joy to own. The graphics are quite amazing, the recent games are brilliant such as Little big planet, Fifa 10 and Call of duty: Modern warfare 2. Another big advantage over especially the xbox 360 is that the PS3 has the brilliant Blu- Ray. Ive recently purshased the Great Michael Jacksons: This is it and its like your sat next to the stage Blu-ray is THAT good. The online play is also completely free which the xbox 360 costs £40 a year. The xbox 360 has arguably a better online service though. Other features include wifi,wireless controllers, and two USB slots. Also at the price of around £250 the ps3 has come down in price dramatically since the launch day price of £425 for the 60gb model. Ovarall, in my opinion, the ps3 is a recommeded buy if your wanting a games console.

            Affordable great earphones

            After spending years with the original apple earphones, the sennheiser CX 300-II are much,much better. The bass, comfort, and reliability are worlds apart from them shabby crackly apple earphones. If you haven't upgraded from the original apple earphones it really is time to purchase quality earphones like these ones. It comes with 3 different earbud sizes. So big or small ears your bond to find a size that fits you. at the price of about £15 they are also cheap as chips for what you get. They really do sound like £50+ headphones. Also included is a small pouch which is handy for carrying your sennheisers on the go. The sennheisers are also noise insulating so you cant hear anything around you which is a good feature and they sit in your ears very snug and comfortable. they also dont slip out of your ears while jogging or sprinting which is great for active users.

            Call of Duty: modern warfare is highly recommened and will keep you going for months if not years!.

            I really thought it would be hard to top Call of duty Modern Warfare but i was so wrong.
            Although i am only on level 6 I am finding it difficult to put down.
            The precision of the weapons is outstanding and the details on the weapons is so good that on some weapons you can see the serial numbers etched on them (just as an example).
            The ability to wound enemies gives you that sense of control.
            Graphics are outstanding as well as the sound.
            This is a very graphic game compared to the first game to the degree that you are given an option of playing a particular level in story mode which ''MAY DISTURB OR OFFEND'' This level is not for the faint hearted and you need to decide if you want to do this level or not.
            Nothing bad to report at all.
            The multiplayer is awesome with lots of perks, attachements, callsigns to collect and is the best online game by far.

              If youre wanting a soocer game you cant do better than the Great Fifa 10.

              It justs gets better and better. The gameplay is brilliant as usual even though its better with the dribbling. Graphics are top notch too. The manager mode is even better with the improved transfer system and also the player growth. More players have better ratings too which i like and you dont have to buy the same players each time, however the game has plenty of glitches and its frustrating when you play for hours and the game messes up on you, still the positive far outweigh the negative. Ive bought every Fifa since Fifa 2004 and it really is the best yet. It also blows competition out of the water such as PES 2010. Also a change in this years edition, players such as Andy Johnson arent world beaters and every player is rated uniquely. Overall I can definitely recommend Fifa 10 on Playstation 3 for a great soccer experience.

              Brilliant phone simply gadget of the decade

              After owning an Iphone 3g for about 3 month now Ive come to the conclusion that this phone is simply the best piece of tech ever created. After struggling with sluggish unresponsive nokia touchscreens the apple iphone is worlds apart. The iphone operating software is a delight to use, very responsive and a great user interface. The app store is one touch away and is a great source of free and paid applications to complement your lifestyle and for entertainment. Free apps such as Facebook and taptap revenge are recommended and paid apps such as ivideocamera and doodlejump are very useful and entertaining. The Iphone includes WiFi, which enables you to connect to any wireless network, and 3G which enables you to connect to the internet on the move. Also the Iphone obviously includes ipod software which is, like everyone knows about apple ipods, good quality and easy to use. Now to the negatives, Iphones cant send files via bluetooth to a different phone manufacture. So no more sending songs or photos to friends. It all has to be controlled via Itunes. Also, you cant set a song from your libary as your ringtone. Instead you have to buy ringtones from Itunes which is very frustrating. But ovarall, the iphone really is a must have gadget and is one of the finest purchases I have made in my life.
