3:55 PM | A camera and quantum physics could improve phone security
Smartphones nowdays can be used in loads of different ways: we can use them to transfer cash, upload information to social media and, very occasionally, actually use them to converse with other humans. Your phone can say a lot about you – the type of phone you have and the way you personalise it can…

8:00 AM | Happy Lady Ada Day
I’m not, in general, huge on holidays. I often wish that those of us in the U.S. would observe the weeks between Halloween and Martin Luther King, Jr., Day with a nice long nationwide nap. But I feel differently about Ada Lovelace Day, founded by British digital-rights activist Suw Charman-Anderson in 2009. Now, every year in mid-October, the world has a chance […]
