Labrinth and iLuminate Light Up the Stage at the Xperia Night of Imagination


Yesterday evening saw a breathtaking Night of Imagination spectacular at the launch of Xperia and superstar Labrinth‘s debut album.

Labrinth performed exclusive remixes from Electronic Earth, and was joined on stage by surprise guests iLuminate – electrifying entertainers who have created the world’s first and only wearable, wireless lighting technology, using LED and EL-wire, which creates an exhilarating performing arts experience.

iLuminate burst onto stage in an explosion of colour for their first ever UK performance, decked out in their bespoke LED costumes they wowed the audience with a specially choreographed routine created just for Xperia and Labrinth.

Mini Keyboard for BlackBerry PlayBook – Hands-On Video


I have had my eye on this piece of kit for a while now. The first batch of Mini Keyboards for the PlayBook arrived in the UK in the last day or so and I managed to secure one for testing.

The kit comes as two parts, as you will see. It consists of a nice leather case and a separate Bluetooth keyboard that slots into that there case. Once the PlayBook in the case and with the desk stand flippy out thing erected you pretty much have a small portable mini computer.

I can certainly see the benefits to using a product like this but I shall reserve my final judgment until I have had a good few days with it.

If you use the BlackBerry PlayBook you want to watch the following video.

CoPilot Live now on sale for iOS and Android


I do like a bargain and ALK are offering an Easter special: discounts on CoPilot Live.

With possible gridlock at the airports, many people will be hitting the roads this Easter weekend, particularly now that the risk of a fuel tanker strike is over (for now at least!). Although UK destinations are likely to be popular, many will be heading across to the continent to escape the sudden cold snap and to find some spring sunshine.

So what else could go wrong? Traffic chaos? Getting lost? Arguments over which way to go? How about huge roaming costs from downloading maps to your phone when abroad?

At CoPilot Live, they want to help you avoid travel problems this Easter. So they are offering some great discounts on the European map versions of our CoPilot Live Premium smartphone sat nav apps – for this weekend only.
