Ten... bits of Jubilee tat tech

Fit for a Queen?

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Nintendo 3DS

Plenty of manufacturers are taking the lazy route this year by rounding up their red, white and blue coloured products and re-promoting them under the Jubilee or Olympics umbrella. Evidently, Nintendo is getting in on the act, and responded to our enquiries by highlighting that its 3DS handheld games machine is available in our national colours. Separately, of course.

We wont beat around the bush here. The Nintendo 3DS has about as much connection to the Jubilee as the Queen does to shapeshifting reptile colonies. Still, if you look at things in a particular way, it is easier to draw a connection. We've knocked up an image even Nintendo didn't have the genius to come up with as a means to demonstrate this. It was a slow news day, OK?

Pure Evoke Mio - Union Jack

RH Numbers

Jubilee celebrations and radio technology go hand in hand, and as such we've seen a vast number of Union Jack-themed wireless wonders appear. It really is a case of take your pick – Roberts has a Union Jack radio, Tivoli has rolled one out too and even ViewQuest makes a patriotic version of its dock-equipped retro radio.

For me, though, it's all about the Pure Evoke Mio, which hit shelves this month clad with the red, white and blue stripes that remind you where you are in the world. Print design aside, the radio is every bit as good as the Evoke Mio, which snagged the Editor's Choice award in our DAB radio roundup. Can't argue with that, surely?
