The iPhone 4 is noticeably heavier and slimmer than the older models, and looks slicker than the predecessor with its minimalist finish.

I bought a brand new 23″ Samsung 2333SW LCD display from dabs4work.ie last week and it only cost me €165 ex VAT (€200 incl). It runs at a max resolution of 1920 x 1080 which is full HD to the informed buyer and offers the basic DVI and VGA connections.
There was one big problem when I plugged in my “Pavillion dv9000t” laptop with “Nvidia Geforce 7600 Go” graphics card over a standard VGA cable…the bloody computer wouldn’t display the max resolution! All I could get was a distorted looking 1680 x 1050 resolution with everything looking stretched and faded.
