It is hard to imagine that the corner of a car park on the outskirts of Leeds could help determine the future of Walmart, the world’s biggest retailer. But that is just what is happening at the Pudsey outpost of Asda, Walmart’s UK arm.

By 2040, cabs will be driven by Google robots, shops will become showrooms for online outlets and call centres will be staffed by intelligent droids.
The study, by global job site xpatjobs.com, also suggests we will have bionic implants that will make us able to perform tasks as fast as a machine.

Nike is considering pulling its FuelBand device out of the competition ahead of Apple’s entry later this year. Following a report on tech news site CNET, Nike confirmed it was laying off staff from its digital sports team and refused to commit to future device launches, although it insisted the FuelBand remained an “important part of our business”.
The race to dominate the nascent wearable technology market is already witnessing early stumbles, even before a potential winner has finished limbering up. Nike is considering pulling its FuelBand device out of the competition ahead of Apple’s entry

Forget too the cliché that cruises are just for the elderly. Today’s cruises cater for all ages, budgets and activities.
