Ten... bits of Jubilee tat tech

Fit for a Queen?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sky Jubilee remote

RH Numbers

If none of this Jubilee junk joyousness pushes your buttons, then this Jacked-up Sky remote – compatible with all Sky+HD boxes – will probably be the last thing on your shopping list. However, it might be the perfect token gesture as you endeavour to steer clear of the televised celebrations.

So, how about a movie instead? Surely there will be a great selection on Sky to distract you from the occasion. Just hit the Box Office button and make your choice of... The Queen... The King's Speech... W.E... Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?

Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Celebration Pack

RH Numbers

Microsoft pays homage to the Queen this year with a special edition Jubilee Xbox 360 console, which comes with a chav-tastic Union Jack design. Never saw that coming, eh? Those who snap up the 4GB console are given the choice whether or not to stick the decorative skins over their console. So anyone given this as a gift can still retain their dignity and leave the stickers in the box rather than on it.

Saying that, you could always counter-balance that flagged-up Xbox patriotism by destroying parts of London in Modern Warfare 3. PlayStation 3 owners who wish to keep the British flag flying high can opt to purchase PS3 skins separately, although no specific bundles are available. How can you resist? ®
