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.

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!

Andrew Ferguson | Posted 26.05.2014 | UK Tech
Andrew Ferguson

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.

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.

Aaron Eccles

When the selfies first started appearing in our Cancer Research UK newsfeeds, a few of our supporters got in touch on Facebook and Twitter to ask if we'd started the campaign. We tweeted that it wasn't ours but that we appreciated the sentiment, and we directed people to our website if they wanted to get involved with our work to beat cancer sooner. Less than 12 hours later, we'd been retweeted hundreds of times and we were seeing more and more selfies appearing from people saying they were doing it for us. We knew we needed to act fast so we took a picture of a team member without makeup holding a sign with our text to donate code.
