Internet hits the big 3-0

It's used daily by billions of people across the world, but few would've realised that yesterday was the internet's 30th birthday, having first been used on 1 January, 1983.

Six years later, a British computer scientist called Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, paving the way for a global revolution, as the Metro reports.

Apple iPhone 6 and iOS 7 already being tested?

We're less than 48 hours into 2013, but already the Apple rumour mill is hard at work.

According to gadget news site The Next Web, the iPhone 6 - as it may not actually be called - is currently being tested by Apple, as well as an iOS 7 operating system.

Digital sales pass £1bn in 2012

Over £1billion was spent on digitial downloads in 2012, BBC News reports.

The highest ever annual total, an increase of 11% from 2011, means that a quarter of the UK's music, movies and games market is now entirely digital.

Smartphone camera 'will end blurry photos'

Japanese electronics firm Toshiba is working on a new sensor for smartphone cameras which could make out-of-focus shots a thing of the past.

According to tech website Expert Reviews, the device contains half a million tiny lenses, each capturing an image with a different focal length.

It allows the photographer to choose how to focus the picture after it has been taken.

Apple iPad and iPod top list of unwanted gifts

Research has shown that Apple products, such as iPhones, iPads and iPods, were the most common unwanted gifts given at Christmas in 2012, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Apple was the retailer with the most searched for returns policy on Christmas day. It's thought the similar product names may confuse people buying Apple gadgets as gifts.
