BT Podshow offers millions of hours of music, games and videos for use on a PC or portable media player, with much of the video content created by the viewers themselves.

Originally launched in a beta version in 2006, BT Podshow went live earlier this year and offers a wealth of content. There's everything from Flyposter (a music show that highlights new talent) to an online medical-advice programme and a show featuring money-saving tips. Users are encouraged to join in by uploading and sharing with the Web their own content.

In fact, online video content is proving so popular that there's even been an explosion in Web-only TV shows, which include the BBC's online soap opera 'Flatmates' and indie-music show 'Pop Junkie'. But while these shows are simply online video, a new generation of 'Web soaps' that allow the viewer to get involved is also emerging.

'Kate Modern' is one of the most recent and popular examples. Through social-networking site Bebo, viewers of the show, which follows the exploits of a London-based girl with supernatural powers and features Ralf Little, can do everything from commenting on episodes to interacting with characters through scripted 'webisodes'.

In fact, two writers are so convinced by the power of the Web that they're choosing to broadcast their new project on YouTube before its hits TV screens.

Jamie Deeks and Ewen MacIntosh, better known as Jamie and Keith from 'The Office', are behind the comedy 'Toyboize', which is currently available to view on the web. It's the story of a chart-topping boyband who reform 20 years after their first hit.

The show, which features songs penned by Ricky Gervais, is expected to be broadcast on terrestrial TV later this year.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
