An Actual Football Manager Ruined My Life

For some odd reason, people seem to think I am actually David Moyes or they just assume we're related, with most thinking I'm his daughter (who looks nothing like me). Most of the tweets were pretty harmless before this week, and usually just asked me to sort out the team. However what's happened since Tuesday night has been completely unbelievable. I'd heard about trolling before and I was bulled in school, but I have never ever experienced anything like this...

We've all faced 'feature creep' - the often overwhelming new choices and functions of our shiny new technology that can baffle, confound and occasionally distress us. But not all technology or innovations needs to perplex us. Sometimes we smack our foreheads and say "wow, I never even knew I needed this, but it will change my life."

A wide range of women took part in the course at Imperial College. Most were active research scientists, working in fields as diverse as nuclear fusion and molecular biology. Some were tech startup bods like me, and there was even a science lawyer thrown in for good measure.

Eddie Chaloner

Few things are guaranteed to annoy a doctor more than the suggestion that he or she can easily be replaced by a machine - surely, we argue, a computer can never replace the subtlety and complexity of medicine - yet this is exactly what some technology experts are suggesting will happen in the near future - can they be right and should we be worried?

Lethal Autonomous Robotics (LARs). This emerging breed of technology will be able to select a target, aim and fire with no intervention from human beings beyond programming and deployment. War could be about to get a lot cheaper, a lot less bloody... and a lot more frequent.

Karl Lagerfeld Calls Selfies 'Electronic Masturbation': Am I the Only One Who Agrees With Him?

Ellen Stewart | Posted 28.05.2014 | UK Tech
Ellen Stewart

Selfies at their best are, like the fashion magnate claims, narcissistic and unashamedly self-gratifying. At worst? A sorry way to define a generation and a potentially damaging by-product of a supposedly liberating medium.

We Must Realise That Pornography Doesn't Exist in a Vacuum

I've been listening to current debates about pornography - most recently about young children watching it - and it got me thinking. For feminists, pornography is one of those particularly contentious issues, along with prostitution and the other sexual industries. Really, anything with a sexual element is quite a contested terrain.

Because Arkham Knight is the last in the Rocksteady Batman trilogy, they really wanted to go out with a bang and create something special, and certainly from the gameplay that I have seen, I think they may just have pulled it off. I cant wait to see more, and get some hands-on for myself!

4K: The New Standard, or Just a Sales Gimmick?

As 4K television sets are expensive to buy and many early adopters have probably only just purchased a 3D TV set, people are unlikely to be rushing out to buy a new one. So why all the excitement over 4K video? Well, put simply, with a good quality input 4K TV looks as if you are looking out of a very clean window.

Last week my 15-year-old daughter told me she hated me. Absolutely screamingly, door-slammingly, never-come-in-my-room-again hated. 'You don't understand,' she said. 'This is my life and you're ruining it!' I hadn't stopped her from going to a party or from going within 10 feet of boys (tempting though that is). All I'd done was banned her from having her mobile phone in her room.
