[Keyword: online journalism]. It would be easy to overlook 'Lads' Mags' in looking at online journalism, but a quick tour around the likes of FHM.com brings up some innovative uses of the medium.

How about the video of the centrefold shoot? How about photo galleries? Screensavers? Desktop wallpaper? An email newsletter? Yes, it's all as titillating as you'd expect, but add in Web TV, mobile content and FHM on your PSP and you can't argue they're not making the most of the medium.
