Sometimes, nostalgia can really pay off. Many of Japan's city-dwellers still harbour strong feelings towards their furusato, or rural home town. Seven years ago the central government began allowing city residents to divert a proportion of their income-tax payments to a furusato of their choice. The response has been overwhelming: in the last fiscal year rural towns earned ¥14 billion ($1.2 billion) from such contributions http://econ.st/1JZxMeu

Five years from now, you may be thanking your dog for helping to make you healthier, safer, more productive and smarter about what's happening in the world around you.

And it has nothing to do with taking Scruffy on long walks.
The next evolution in wireless networking holds promises of self-driving cars and movies that download in the blink of an eye. 5G is big at this year's Mobile World Congress, but don't expect it until 2020.
