  • Meet The ‘Real-Life Iron Man’

    Marvel’s self-styled “genius billionaire playboy philanthropist” is a work of pure fiction… isn’t he? When Stan Lee created the character of Tony Stark and his crime-fighting alter-ego Iron Man in 1963, the character was conceived as a straight-up capitalist – a ludicrous concoction of billionaire industry magnate, ladies man and adventurer. Little did Stan Lee know that just eight years later, a child would be born who would one day embody all the things that Iron Man represented on the page – one who would go on to inform the most popular portrayal of the character.

  • Sony focuses on endurance and camera quality with new phones

    Sony's latest mid-range smartphones, unveiled on Monday, offer industry-first camera technology and place a premium on battery life but are aimed squarely at the mass market. A week after the Lenovo-owned company took the wraps off its Moto G and Moto X smartphones, Sony has launched two new mid-range handsets of its own that put a premium on the things that matter to consumers rather than just the features technophiles deem as must-haves. An equally good 13-megapixel camera can be found on the back and the handset's battery is big enough to offer up to two days' use between charges -- like the new Moto X Play -- or, claims Sony, seven hours and 47 minutes of video playback.
