There are some genuinely fantastic deals to be had with the original ipad, so should you rush out and buy the new ipad 2? Lets take a look at what’s on offer…
For gadget lovers all over the world we are now a few weeks into the launch of the new ipad 2 in the UK. So will you be tempted to buy? Or should you stick with the original ipad because there are some great deals to be had?
So the ipad 2 will offer video calling and is up to twice as fast because of a new dual-core A5 processor and of course is thinner and lighter. At around the same price you can see why people may be tempted by the ipad 2.
On the other hand the ipad (original) is available with some great tariffs as mobile operators look to boost ipad sales before the ipad 2 takes over.
Orange is offering 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G version of the original iPad for just 99 on a 24 month contract.

Personally I like my laptop to be mylaptop, my mobile phone to be my mobile phone and my desktop PC to be my desktop PC. I like to go running and I certainly would not take an iphone out to listen to music, let alone with an ipad stuck under my arm; that’s what my ipod nano and ipod shuffle are for! Keep things simple when it comes to gadgets that is my thinking. Perhaps that’s just becuase I’m an old fashioned kind of gadget lover…
So how does recycling your old mobile phone impact on the environment?
When you recycle something like a mobile phone it creates a circular supply chain. These types of supply chain benefit the environment in a number of ways. They reduce carbon emissions, as there is no longer a need to produce all of the components such as printed circuit boards. This has an effect further back on the supply chain, as less of the primary materials are sourced-so the carbon footprint reduces further.
Another benefit is waste management. At this point emissions are reduced as there is less metal and electronic waste (e-waste) which ends up in the landfill recycling process. Nearly all metal waste can be and is melted down to its purest form and re-used: It is important that we do this to keep scarce natural resources in circulation. Although the waste from your recycled mobile phone still has to be recycled, this it carried out by specialist, private companies and does not impact on government waste management funds.
There is an estimated 20-50 million tonnes of e-waste produced each year which can house harmful components such as lead and cadmium. This waste makes up 5% of all solid waste and with an average lifespan of only 2 years for a mobile phone (in developed countries), it can only increase.
Still think its just too much hassle to recycle your phone?
Perhaps you should think about not only the long term environmental damage e-waste will do to our planet, but the long term damage it will do to your finances. When you choose to throw away your phone with general household waste it is taken away by your local Council. This service is paid for with your taxes and if we continue to increase

Starting with sleekness, the Vaio has a plastic body which is available in several colours and appears to be vastly elegant, however the Apple’s grand aluminium body wins the battle.
The colossal 27 inch screen on the Apple looks totally fantastic, but even though the smaller size of the Vaio’s 24″ display, it’s multi-touch functionality is especially intuitive – it’s close to call, but the iMac’s massive monitor comes out on top.
As standard the Vaio packs 500 gigabytes hard drive and 4 gigabytes of RAM to the iMac’s paltry 320GB hard drive and 2GB of RAM. Obviously these can be expanded for extra cash if you have some of it spare!
The Sony brings Bluray to the all-in-one playing field and is the first to include it, the Apple has barely dual layer DVD.
It seems that the iMac is the greenest all-in-one on the market at the minute. The Sony will cost approximately 25% extra to operate than the iMac.
And finally, speed
The most imperative feature to most is the actual operation of the computers. To assess this the Apple and Sony directly competed with some multimedia duties. Results show that multi-tasking multimedia tasks is more or less twice as speedy with the Apple than it is with the Sony!
The Bluray functionality on the Sony allows for magnificent HD video, but to be fair HD films are offered for download from iTunes (on both machines) so this drive should never be a massive factor in the ultimate verdict.
The multi-touch screen on the Sony is undoubtedly
