The first line looks very "stretched". How can I improve the formating?

enter image description here

@misc{Rel1,
author = {J. Citizen}, 
title = {Kinect used as Topshop dressing room},
month = {may},
year = {2011},
howpublished = {http://www.playerattack.com/news/2011/05/10/kinect-used-as-topshop-dressing-room/} 
}

Edit: \url{} does not solve the problem:

The easiest possible solution is to put \allowbreak in appropriate place/places in the web address in your .bib file:

@misc{Rel1,
author = {J. Citizen}, 
title = {Kinect used as Topshop dressing room},
month = {may},
year = {2011},
howpublished = {http://www.\allowbreak{}playerattack.com/news/2011/05/10/kinect-used-as-topshop-dressing-room/} 
}

use:

@misc{Rel1,
author = {J. Citizen}, 
title = {Kinect used as Topshop dressing room},
month = {may},
year = {2011},
howpublished = {\url{http://www.playerattack.com/news/2011/05/10/kinect-used-as-topshop-dressing-room/}} 
}

and in your main document

\usepackage{url}

if not already present.

The problem is the URL isn't breaking at / or . , probably you need to modify your bst file (or switch to an updated one) that puts a command such as \url...} around the URL in the generated LaTeX, and then use a package such as url (or hyperref if I remember correctly) that typesets URLs in a way that allows line breaking at more points.

Alternatively get latex to typeset the bibliography ragged right.
