Curvy phones and some BBC brilliance

A curved screen means it'll sit more snugly in your back pocket, but is there more to it than making your phone more buttock-friendly? The verdict? It's essentially a Galaxy Note 3 with a curved screen.

Imagine telling somebody 20 years ago that one of the world's top tech firms would be the BBC. They'd have laughed at you, and hit you with sticks. But they'd be wrong, because the BBC is doing all kinds of interesting. First up there's Playlister, a new music service that will let you add tracks from BBC shows to playlists, and then - this is the good bit - export those playlists to your chosen digital music service.

That's not all. Director general Tony Hall gave an inspiring speech about the BBC's future, and as Patrick Goss explains, there's lots to look forward to: a personalised iPlayer, public service broadcasting via digital and most interestingly of all, a programme to educate the next generation of coders. As Stephen Fry put it, we used to teach children Greek; now we need to teach them geek.

The Hudl is the perfect way to join the tablets bandwagon. It's cheaper than the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, yet it's a more complete tablet overall.

The screen is to die for and the form factor is ideal for media consumption. It's light, it's bright, it's fun and it's thin. What's not to like?

@eck4355 That smell is probably pvc. I'd hold my breath if I were you #toxic
