Uber-rival Bolt Goes Large in London

Uber hasn't had a great time of it in London recently, with Transport for London in September granting the taxi app a measly two-month licence to continue operating in the capital. So the company's probably not going to be best pleased that ride-hailing app Bolt has today introduced an XL category to cater for large families and bigger groups. Read More >>

World’s Thinnest Gaming PC Punches Above Its Weight

Far too many gaming PCs are hulking beasts. They don't call em "towers" for nothing. Digital Storm is trying to fight that chunky, space-stealing trend with its new Bolt PC. Billed as the world's thinnest, Bolt's form is certainly slender, but it doesn't want for more under the hood. Read More >>

Lolympics: Day 14

As the Olympics comes into its closing weekend, it's the final edition of Lolympics, but there's still a lot happening under all the winning and celebrating. Some people will stop at nothing to get gold, not even a broken leg puts them off, which is insane, plus someone offers Bolt an unlimited supply of chicken nuggets, his favourite. The Spice girls will be here to entertain you on Sunday, but that won't stop fights on the basketball court, or French people cheating. Meanwhile, we've got a load of gruesome-looking crashes from the BMXing to look forward to. That's all in the last working day of the lolympics. Read More >>

Lolympics: Day 11

We've won gold 21 times over now, and thanks to our success, Australia's getting a bit petulant over the whole thing. In other Olympics news today, if haven't made it to the Olympic Stadium, we've got a gigapixel image for you, which is the next best thing to being there. It's not all good news though -- Idowu is out, and seven Cameroonians are on the lamb from the Olympics, but at least we haven't landed flat on our backs in the pool (yet). Bolt apparently wants to play for Man U after this, which is weird, and did you know each gold medal costs us about £450? Add that to our national debt. Read More >>

Lolympics: Day 10

Well, we've managed a serious medal haul these last three days, plus the awesome 100m final, which some tool decided he was going to try and wreck with a bottle and some abuse; thankfully the rozzers got him. Meanwhile, more signs make a mockery of water polo players; McDonald's powers Bolt, again, and some idiot gets thrown out of the Games for smoking dope while another just can't be arsed. All in another day's Lolympics. Read More >>
