Footless Tights!

Get the latest look with the help of our footless tights selection.

Kemal Evicted

Kemal has been evicted from the Big Brother House. Orlaith remained poker faced, with some saying she is going for Jack Dee tactics of saying how much she hates being there in the hope of being kept in.

The first thing Kemal did on hearing the news is to strip off to put on his special eviction night outfit. He looked pretty disappointed to be leaving but said that he was "so excited".

New Apple Mac mini Models

Apple have extended their Mac Mini range to include three models. The Mac mini is certainly a low cost computing option, with the base model costing just £359. If this will be your first computer, bear in mind though that the price does not include a monitor, keyboard or mouse, the thinking being that most people will have these already.

Apple computers have an enthusiastic following, and most Mac users swear they would never even think about using a PC. A Mac user will tell you how easy to use they are, and a big plus point with the Mac mini is that a whole bundle of useful software is included with it. Another advantage of Macs is that because they aren't as common as PCs, they aren't targeted as much by spyware or computer viruses.

Name of Next Windows Version

Okay, so this is old news on the blogosphere now (well, about 3 days old), but in case you've been on holiday in Outer Mongolia, the name of the next version of Microsoft Windows will be Windows Vista. It's not a bad name, but we thought the code name, which was Windows Longhorn, was more intriguing. Windows Vista will be launched in 2006, and you can expect some very cool new graphics in the user interface. Why not buy yourself a flat screen monitor in preparation?

Craig "Looks After" Anthony

Big Brother Gift Choices

The Big Brother housemates had to perform a mime task today. On successful completion, Big Brother offered them a choice of gifts - alcohol and chocolates or beauty pack and the company of a real kitten for an hour or so. The cat won, so a cute fluffy grey kitten made a brief appearance on the show.

If you can't think of a gift for someone then try If that special someone likes animals then buyagift has plenty of options (see Other Activities/Animal Magic).

Anthony Missing Maxwell

Many of the current Big Brother housemates are a bit down. Anthony has said how much he has been missing Maxwell and Saskia. "If they were still here, it would be a stroll, I could stay here for ages," he said, "I could be down, but then Maxwell would crack a joke. He was a joker, but he knew when to be sensitive too".

At least hairdresser Craig has been more upbeat, "I don't want to be thinking that at least there are only three weeks to go. I want to enjoy my time here".

We guess it would be boring staying in a house with no music or dvds.

Orlaigh still struggling in Big Brother

Now that ghetto kid Science has gone, the Big Brother house seems very quiet. However, Orlaigh still seems to be feeling the pressure of being confined. The Northern Irish lass has continued to feel physically sick and has said that she may still have to walk if she has to spend much more time with certain people in the house, especially Derek, who she can't stand. We just think that Orlaigh is feeling a little lonely, not having any suitable male suitor within the house. Earlier today she had a long chat with Anthony in the bedroom, where she told the Geordie lad, "All I really need now is a big bear hug", in a blatant attempt to get a cuddle from him. Unfortunately for her, Anthony was having none of it, very much keeping his distance from her as he lay back on the bed. So Orlaigh had to find another activity to occupy herself, in this case, going off to do the dishes.

Big Brother - Orlaigh or Science?

It's set to be another close call in Friday's Big Brother eviction. Orlaigh has said she wants to go, and if she isn't evicted she'll walk out herself. Science is getting on the nerves of all the other housemates, so if it was down to them it would be no contest. More on our Big Brother News page.

Long Hot Summer by Girls Aloud

Girls Aloud were on CDUK this morning promoting their new single "Long Hot Summer". The track is typical of the high energy sound of the band, and has a video of the girls in overalls at a garage. The band was interviewed on CDUK by Jack Osbourne, who has now lost his long curly hair and glasses, and looks a lot better for it.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Out Now

As you may already know, the sixth book in the Harry Potter series, entitled "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" was launched today at midnight. Testament to just how big the Harry Potter phenomenon has become is the fact that it had its own launch party at Edinburgh Castle, with thousands of cheering fans welcoming the mastermind author J.K. Rowling as she arrived in a Mercedes. The author went inside the castle to read an excerpt from the book.

MP3 Players

There are now loads of mp3 players on the market, and currently we have 135 results for mp3 players in our online catalogue.

Big Brother Evictions on Friday

Big Brother evictions this Friday will be a break from the norm. All the housemates who did not make nominations (after Big Brother lied to them saying nominations this week were optional), will face the public vote - that's all the housemates except Anthony, Craig and Kemal. The two housemates that get the most public votes will then face a final vote by the housemates themselves to see who goes.

Currently in the Big Brother house Kemal is being a bit paranoid about his relationship with Makosi. He's hoping that Makosi will be his friend when he gets out. However, his constant relationship analysis is beginning to get to Makosi. More on our Big Brother News page.

Oasis Live from Manchester on Channel 4

In case you haven't heard, Channel 4 is tonight showing coverage from the Oasis gig at the Manchester City ground. It airs from 11.10pm - 12.50am. Hear all their classic tracks plus songs from the new album Don't Believe the Truth.

Victory for Science in Big Brother

Science has beaten Maxwell in Friday's Big Brother eviction. Whilst the eviction of the popular Maxwell may have surprised some, his bullying and prank playing weren't popular with the girls, and this proved to be his downfall. Anthony and Craig weren't happy to see their pal go, with Craig sobbing in the toilet. More on our Big Brother News page.

London Wins 2012 Olympics

Congratulations to Lord Coe who has secured the 2012 Olympics for London. When asked after winning what he was going to do next he said, "Have a quiet beer, followed by 19 loud ones". Lord Coe's strategy of promoting London on the basis of it being the best candidate for getting youth involved in sport was a gamble that paid off. He said how he had visited the Olympic Stadium before the Munich Olympics and that had fuelled his dreams, and hopes that there will be British youngsters around the country training that little bit harder tonight in the knowledge that they could be competing in the London 2012 Olympics.

This is great news, and along with the Germany 2006 World Cup, gives us something else to look forward to.

Get yourself in shape with sports kit from Kitbag Ltd.

Makosi Asks for Pregnancy Test

After the hot tub episode with Anthony, Makosi has asked Big Brother for a pregnancy test kit. More on our Big Brother News page.

Bill Gates at Live 8

We've been enjoying the Live 8 concert all day, and have of course signed the Live 8 list over at, although we haven't seen our names go across the stage yet. We have watched most of the coverage, highlights for us being Madonna's excellent performance, band of the moment The Killers and mesmeric guitarist Slash from Velvet Revolver.

Earlier in the day, Bill Gates introduced Dido. In case you don't know already, the Microsoft supremo is now doing a massive amount to fight the diseases that afflict the third world through the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. Nice one Bill. It's great to see one of the world's most influential businessmen adding his weight to improving world health.

Technorati Blog Tag: - do your bit

We've been watching the Live 8 coverage. Kofi Annan has just given a brief speech, and Miss Dynamite has followed him. Ricky Gervais is doing a good job of winding up fellow host Jonathon Ross. Band of the moment Keane have just arrived on stage.

It is a sad but true fact that most of the world's population live in dire poverty, so if you want to do your bit, sign the Live 8 list at You can also read the Make Povery History G8 Rally blog.
