THE INQUIRER has launched a tool to make it easier for you, our esteemed readers, to make your views known about the latest technology and the way we're covering it in our articles.

From today you'll see a new commenting box at the end of each article, which will let you log in via Twitter, Facebook or Google+. Or if you prefer the more old-school style, you'll still be able to just enter your email address each time you want to leave a comment.

The new system will make it much easier for you to talk with other readers and respond to their comments. You can choose to reply to a particular comment, rather than just post a general remark, and you’ll see those conversations in a threaded message view.

You can also choose to get an RSS feed of all the comments on a particular article, or email alerts every time a new comment is posted on a story, by clicking either the ‘Comment feed’ or ‘Subscribe via email’ buttons at the end of each article.

The new commenting tool will make it easier to share comments via Facebook and Twitter, and will let you change the order in which you see comments to most recent, oldest or best.

And for those of you who want to add more of a personal touch to your profile, you can add an avatar so we can all get an idea of what you look like.

We hope you like the new commenting tool and find it useful. Please let us know what you think about it via the new comments section below. µ
