Paul Marshall | Posted 12.08.2014 | UK Tech

The first thing we do when we wake up is to check our emails. The last we do before going to bed is to check our emails. In the middle of the night we check our emails. Yes, sleep checking is the 21st century's sleep walking. Funny how you don't remember responding to that particular call to action. Sorry, but it's too late now. T

The most anticipated World Cup in memory is now well underway and it's perhaps the hardest finals to call in terms of predicting the winner. With as many as half of the 32 nations believing they have a genuine chance of glory, any opening to gain even a slight advantage is something to be explored...

If Marissa Mayer wants to coax the big names on YouTube away, it may be as simple as giving them more guarantees of income than Google are willing (or able) to.

What Television Can Learn From Yahoo

Dawn Airey

Television is still the ultimate lean-forward experience. It has shown that it can embrace digital opportunities, and is now beginning to understand how its content can be delivered and monetised worldwide in a way that wasn't possible ten years ago. As Darwin pointed out, you don't have to be the strongest to survive, you just need to be adaptable, and TV has shown that it can be just that. But there are still reefs ahead on which TV could founder. Television may be adaptable, but it is not very good at changing course quickly.

More Boohoo Than Yahoo

I think Ms Maher may have got confused with its 30 day teaser campaign - a new logo everyday (er doesn't Google do that from time to time?), in other words, give the folks a bit of everything. Alas we end up with nothing.

Keeping up Appearances: What Should a Woman in Leadership Look Like?

I was once brought in to 'tone down' the image of a very senior female executive in financial services (a job I turned down). Her appearance was deemed inappropriate -- perhaps her sharp dress intimidated her male colleagues.

Who Will Buy Foursquare? Google, Yahoo! or Microsoft?

Owen Lee | Posted 03.11.2013 | UK Tech
Owen Lee

At SXSW 2008, Foursquare was the star attraction. With a rapidly growing user base suggesting it was the first to crack the solomo enigma, it was on track to be a social giant. However a lack of product innovation has resulted in a steady decrease in users, and with only $2m revenue generated last year has led to some disgruntled shareholders.

But What Has Google Ever Done for Us?

Alice Bonasio | Posted 04.10.2013 | UK Tech
Alice Bonasio

In the past months there's been a seismic shift in how Google is perceived by the media, government and public in the UK. From being pretty much universally loved and admired as a bastion of corporate goodness Google now finds itself mocked for its "Don't Be Evil" slogan and accused of either condoning or facilitating a range of despicable deeds...

When we arrived at Wireless we headed to the guest area to have a drink in the sunshine. In this cushty area (which had actual real grass) there was a BBQ, a couple of bars with some of Cirque Du Soir's performers scattered around. It was a pretty nice bubble, but we couldn't stay for long as we had to try and see Frank Ocean and Snoop Dogg at pretty much the same time.

The popular truism for the past decade is that broadcast TV is dead. However, recent earnings from filmed entertainment companies suggest anything but. Filmed entertainment, including TV, is booming, and the share price ticker tells the tale.

The Government is clearing an entire hour and a half to listen to representations from Google, Yahoo, MSN, domestic charities, childcare groups, various interested parties as well as Maria Miller, the culture secretary, and then it will make a decision.
