Weird Wide Web: Vine, emojiart and a gaming grampa

All of your essential tech and social media news for the week in one byte-sized portion.

WELCOME TO THE WEIRD Wide Web – where we take a look at the week’s best offerings in tech and social media news.

Product launch of the week – Blackberry 10

This week the tech world was buzzing with the launch of two new Blackberry smartphones – the Z10 and the Q10. Reactions have been mixed but one thing everyone seems to agree on is that the absence of a physical keyboard on the new Z10 is controversial. The BlackBerry keyboard is one of the features most valued by its fans but the company insists the touchscreen keyboard is just as impressive. What’s your verdict?

App of the week – Vine

The internet went wild over Vine this week and the celebs battled to be the biggest and the best in just 6 seconds. Personally, we think Kevin Smith stole the show.
