In addition to the original white Rolly, Sony has announced a black shade to match your black, black heart. Although heaven knows what an angst-ridden music fan like you is doing with a dancing MP3 player!

IT'S Easter this weekend – so what better way to celebrate than with CHOCOLATE! Yes, it's the one time of the year we can all over-indulge without being accused of pigging out, well, assuming you don't go overboard and raid Woolworths on Monday for all those bargain-basement eggs that didn't sell in time for Easter Sunday.
