The latest sample of "stuff" to keep you entertained.
Blue Finger - You would need to be James Bond to buy this. It's the world's most expensive diamond ring at a mere $16.26m. That might be stretching the wallet so check out www.macintyres.co.uk for the latest bling at wholesale prices. If you forgot about Valentine's, this might save your bacon.
WikiLeaks - The most controversial story of the century to date. Read about Julian Assange's insight to world affairs as we didn't know it before. Available online at www.amazon.co.uk. You might have to burn it afterwards!
Sun Red Motorcycle - It only does 13 miles at 30mph with charged solar panels but it's a cost effective method of city transport. It's at concept stage and the panels do retract so you can get on it! If conventional motorcycling is more your scene grab a copy of the latest RiDE magazine which has just finished its RiDER Power awards (reader survey for best bikes) in 2010 or subscribe at www.greatmagazines.co.uk
