Though some lifestyle gurus may claim to subsist on "chemical free" food, such a thing does not exist.

You are probably surrounded by more computers than you know what to do with, whether it's the phone in your pocket, the old clunker at home, or the sleek little ultraportable you got from work.

Here are some bait-and-switch ads from the 1950s and beyond, and what you'd get if you sent in for them.

After much anticipation, a package rocked up at the office this week. We get a lot of packages coming through the doors, especially when you share space with fashion journalists, video game experts and tech reviewers.

Ever been tempted to buy the latest shiny thing just because it has more features than its competitor? We call this "checkbox syndrome".

Before you fall for a list of tech specs designed to impress an audience during a big flashy announcement, stop and think about whether it's really an upgrade for you.
