The latest and greatest threat to our online security has been dubbed Shellshock. Apparently, it's worse than the Heartbleed bug.

I asked my friends for recommendations for accountants. Sharing the results...
Unless you have a penchant for number crunching and government-related form-filling, tax returns, VAT returns, cashflow forecasts, balance sheets are probably tasks that you'd like to delegate. Let us not forget the UK's record-breaking 17000 page tax code. To run a successful business, ...

Putting together a list of tech and innovation events for 2015 - would love to know your favourites.
What are your favourite tech events? Or business events in general? Are you a Web Summit fan? Do you hanker for SXSW and the delights of Austin? Or an altogether more chilly visit to Slush in Helsinki?In between the Christmas festivities we're putting together a list, we hope something of an ultimate list, of tech and innovation events.

Lovely, non-technical explainer video for the very technical security exploit that's currently doing the rounds.

What a fantastic experience - and how often do you get to say that about a garage? - super-speedy response to my initial queries. Got a call 10 mins after they started working on the car, which I thought meant bad news, but no, they let me know that previous advice from Kwik Fit recommending all brake pads and disks needed changing was complete overkill and only the front needed doing. Cut the bill by 50%. Not only that but the staff were fantastic and gave me and my son a lift to the nearby Designer Outlet Centre to while away a couple of hours while we waited, and picked us up when the car was done. Outstanding service. I'd highly recommend them.
