The oldest of old-school! Some of which are surprisingly appropriate.

"In 1998, the same year that Google debuted, the search engine IFINDIT was launched.

Today, both Google and IFINDIT still exist, so I guess we'll call it a draw."

This can only be a good thing - to be able to control what apps can and can't have access to on your phone. (Why does a flashlight app need to know my location? Why does Facebook need access to my SMS messages?). Let's hope it actually happens. 
Google is planning to release its next Android version with a feature users have been asking for years now—more granular controls to protect their privacy.

Yeah, I got that too. I'm sure that most responsible developers only request the permissions required for optimum app performance (the BBC news app is a good example), but I reckon there's a swathe out there who are just data mining.

(Didn't I once work in tech support with this guy?)

Let's face it, how many of us have wanted to do this?

Enraged US man shoots his malfunctioning computer - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-32407688
A man in the US city of Colorado Springs faces police action after becoming so frustrated with his computer that he shot it eight times, police say.

Hahaha, I love this story. Normally I don't approve of gun use, but I might make an exception here :)

"We now no longer need terrorists. We're so good at terrorising ourselves." Obviously, this is American. But feel free to translate it to any British security policy for a similar effect.

Faith leading to action: action rooted in Faith. So simple. Perfect. 
Last week I went to a lecture given by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at Lambeth Palace.  Since becoming the C of E’s top man, Welby has caught the public’s imagination and headlines t...

This is why I could never go back to a data plan that wasn't unlimited. Thanks, +Three UK​!

Actually, most of it is when I'm at work - I spend a lot of time at my desk, listening to music, and I use YouTube for that. When you spend 5-6 hours a day streaming videos, it add up quickly!

I'm pretty much your archetypal swing voter, trying to focus on policy rather than "politics" (so to speak). And this just made everything more simple...

Yeah! Now, this is how it's done! (Once more, for emphasis - trickle-down economics is bunk).

The owner of Gravity Payments, a credit card processor in Seattle, said he heard stories of how tough it was to make ends meet even on salaries that exceeded the federal minimum wage.

I think +GoogleNow​ is the best voice search out there - it's the most thorough, the most accurate and the fastest, too. But for a bit of sparkle and personality? Then it had to be Siri! 
Siri, the intelligent assistant of Apple users. Have you talked to her? If you have, then you'd know what sense of humor she has, what range of emotions she has, what level of intelligence she has! Siri is definitely one of the most loved smart assistant people have, and one of the greatest innovations Apple has brought about! Here are fifteen awesome, super-duper 'Siri moments' when she totally nailed it! Do share!
