- General Technology and getting the best from what the Internet has to offer from a technological point of view, be it Web 2.0 services, software or entertainment, much of which are provided free to us internet users.
- Hi-Tech Gadgets, such as mobile phones and their associated functionality – I currently have a HTC Desire handset which is essentially a pocket computer, I can check emails, browse the web to get information I need wherever I am and use the built-in GPS to find my way around new places – the future for mobile platforms is one that holds a lot of possibilities for all of us.
- Gaming is also developing at great speed, be it from a technical point of view in terms of graphics, physics, gaming engine that you see in with the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 or utilising new technologies to create new gaming styles as we’ve witnessed with the Nintendo Wii, Playstation Move and Xbox Kinect motion controllers.
