There's something missing on Google Maps: the ability to search by product. If I want to find the nearest shop where I can buy WD-40, or a 27" inner-tube, or a pair of  pink socks, how do I do that? I can't... not easily anyway. That is, until I download Pocket High Street.

With an increasing number of WiFi hungry gadgets in our homes, and more and more people avoiding the daily commute in favour of working from their sofa, our home networks are under more pressure than ever before to meet the needs of both our work and play.

The Innovation Team is again heading to Austin, Texas for SXSW 2014. This put us firmly in fizzy territory as we waited for the plane to take off. And by fizzy, I don't mean Champagne - the '80s are long gone. I mean a mixture of excitement and The Fear.

Headphone 'Hype'

Liam Deacon

Many of you may have noticed the unbounded rise in under 25s cat-walking their way across Britain's high streets, colleges and public transport in large, salient and often flamboyant headphones. Personally, I think some of them look garish almost comical. But I'm not completely anti people utilising such devices so incessantly. I couldn't be, having recently joined this growing trend.

If Trees Could Give Off Wi-Fi Signals

We are connected to this world in more ways than imaginable, in the ground and in the air; everything is made up of the basic building blocks of life, carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Trees are one of these givers of life, and how humans and trees correspond to give each other life is one of the most fundamental, yet essential aspects of ecology that much of the world lets slip from their minds...

How Important Is Experience for a Young Entrepreneur?

Nick Morris | Posted 01.05.2014 | UK
Nick Morris

Many of the people who ask my initial question clearly believe there is, but - while it shouldn't come as a surprise that as a young entrepreneur I'll be fighting the corner of the youth view - for me, dismissing the ambitions and prospects of a budding entrepreneur purely because of their age or corporate experience is at best, shortsighted, and at worst, a view rooted in envy.

Are You a Smoaster?

Steph Weller | Posted 30.04.2014 | UK Tech
Steph Weller

I've certainly been guilty of sharing and Smoasting, especially the F***-Off Boasting About Your Child posts: when our 19-month-old completely surprised us by counting to 10, I was bursting with pride and wanted to shout it from every rooftop but I stopped myself. Because, actually, do I really need 40 likes to affirm that our son is as bright as a button?

We need to see much more mentoring and for schools to actively, not passively, ensure a throughput of female role models talking to, and hopefully inspiring, pupils. Governors and local education authorities should take a firm lead.

According to a new book written by Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfssen entitled 'The Second Machine Age', we have witnessed two major technological shifts in our history. The first began towards the end of the 19th century, where machines replaced and multiplied the physical work of humans and animals.

Mark Braund

Perhaps like many others I'm not yet convinced the on role Google Glass will play in the interview and hiring process, however the fact that someone out there is trying, irrespective of its long term success or otherwise, should be applauded - I am certainly watching with interest and will be keen to see the result.

Robots Got Synthetic Emotions

For robots to make highly specialized tasks, sometimes it is needed to embed affective behaviour that have not been associated traditionally with intelligence. Indeed, emotions play a critical role in human's way of reasoning and its decision-making activities. In other words, emotions have a critical impact over intelligence.

Michelle Holmes | Posted 26.04.2014 | UK Tech
Michelle Holmes

While its true that technology has the ability to and is expanding our consciousness and our reach and access when wanting to obtain, explore and digest information this also gives us the scope to become information junkies - encyclopaedias with an opinion and the ability to churn out a fact about everything and anything.

Could You Really Fall in Love With a Computer Operating System?

But could anyone really fall in love with a piece of software? It may sound like the stuff of science fiction but, the truth is, much of the technology the film depicts is already with us. And scenarios like this might not be that far off. 'Love' is perhaps a metaphor for the kind of dependency or symbiosis we're heading towards.
