Apple's New Niche Is Privacy

Graham Barlow | Posted 11.06.2014 | UK Tech
Graham Barlow

When Apple released its first iPad in 2010 it had a pretty obvious advantage over its competition - there simply wasn't any. Sure, Microsoft and friends brought out the first Tablet PC way back in 2002, but nobody wanted one. It was clunky, ran Windows and had a stylus.

The Last Taboo

Shirley Conran | Posted 28.05.2014 | UK
Shirley Conran

It is the last taboo. Talking about it is not something a nice girl does in mixed company, it is indelicate, unfeminine. Many women have been raised to believe that men are "naturally good" at money matters and women are "naturally bad" at money matters. It's not said directly, little girls pick up this idea by osmosis. Outside the home, for a man to say he wants more money or ask for a raise is acceptable; it goes with the hairy chest and the company car. But women can't say that, they won't even admit it to themselves and they don't want to think about why.

John Friend

Great teachers can make such a difference to a youngster's education. They know their pupils intimately; they inspire and encourage them to learn and to enjoy learning. But even the best teachers hit limitations; there just aren't enough hours in the day to know everything about every pupil they teach. But technology is starting to change that. In the coming years, a lot of the legwork, and the burdensome aspects of teaching will be assisted by technology.

I lead a very 20th century life in the morning, well before work begins and the rest of the family ruin my peaceful breakfast. I read my papery newspapers, write notes with a pen and occasionally sketch - badly - the comings and goings in the back garden.

What is the Real Value of a Book?

Of course I could just go and seek out a pirate version of the book. I'm sure that someone has already ripped the Kindle version of the book and made it freely available on a pirate website, but I'm a writer myself. I know that people who put months of effort into books deserve to get something for their efforts.

What's a Sense of Direction Got to Do With It?

Sonja Lewis | Posted 25.03.2014 | UK Lifestyle

So where is this sense when it comes to directions? It turns out that this sense, or lack thereof, seems to be latent in grid cells in my brain. Last summer, neuroscientist Joshua Jacobs, of Drexel University, along with his colleagues, tested fourteen people who had electrodes implanted in their brain for epilepsy therapy, and learned that humans have similar 'direction cells' as animals.
