You make a quick call to a friend, your service provider knows where you are as your phone connects to three mobile phone masts.  If you use Google they also know your exact location within 50 metres, something not known … Continue reading Becoming Digitally Invisible

Facebook No Mindbender

BY MATTHEW CORRIGAN I don’t like Facebook. I don’t like the insidious way it has crept into every aspect of our social lives, I don’t like that it has succeeded in turning invite into a noun and inbox into a verb and I don’t like the way it has democratised stupidity.  hun x Yet with all the shabby hypocrisy of an A-list celebrity preaching about … Continue reading Facebook No Mindbender

The Silencing

BY MANDY BALDWIN What is it with Twitter?  As a forum for public speech – which it purports to be – it’s inadequate, when you think about it.  Anyone worth their salt gets suspended eventually and staff have been covertly filmed gleefully discussing their tactics for crushing dissent, or wrongthink, which, along with Hate Speech, must stand as a concept scary enough to have the … Continue reading The Silencing

Going Hi-Tech for Better Driving

BY ANNE CHIE New technology follows us wherever we go—quite literally—especially on the road. Even the least adventurous among us bring at least a few electronic devices with us, and it’s easy to see why all this tech has changed the way we live, much less travel.

How I Beat the Car Park Cowboys

BY MATTHEW CORRIGAN I realised my mistake straight away. Rather than add to the Saturday morning congestion of a busy, mixed-use street, I had opted to drive onto the wide, empty car park at the side of an NHS surgery. The moment I crossed the threshold, I saw the camera. The terms and conditions were printed on a small wall-mounted sign: vehicle owners must register … Continue reading How I Beat the Car Park Cowboys
