This new addition to the noisy world of laser tag claims to occupy “the third space between the screen-dominated indoors and the vanishing outdoors”, which means that it has all the hysterical trigger-happiness of a multiplayer first-person shooter without the risk of obesity and bedsores.
The online Indie must not forget its roots as a vigorous daily conversation between people who only quite liked one another
What happened to the Independent this week is a footnote in a huge story – the wave of creative destruction overturning all traditional media – and a very important local political and cultural story.
The big story is well understood. Digital is much cheaper than analogue, or Gutenberg technology. The cumbersome is collapsing, outpaced by the nimble. That allows new voices into an old debate-cartel. But it’s not all genteel and attractive.
It’s trying to look kooky but grown up, like a stilt walker who still manages to look sexy
The Citroën DS4 came in Tourmaline Orange. I’m just going to leave that there. I’m definitely not going to point out that tourmaline is a silicate mineral compound and could come in any colour. The DS has a lot of cute, pointless little innovations: the handles on the back doors are at the top of the window, not in the middle of the door; the front grate looks like the alien’s smile in Home; there’s a whole ton of chrome, which, let’s face it, is more of a treat for the onlooker than the driver.
I certainly saw no lack of panache in this vehicle, though I struggled to place it between “family” and “fun” (Citroën frames it “for the nonconformist”, which is sweet and quite, quite wrong: the last car a nonconformist would buy is a new one). In fact, this ambiguity is deliberate: it’s called a Crossback, to mark it out as some advance on a hatchback – a little bit taller, a brawler, roof bars, slightly beefed-up ground clearance. Don’t get me wrong; it’s no SUV – I’m not sure what kind of ground it’s trying to clear. I wouldn’t drive it off-road. I think it’s just trying to look kooky but grown up, like a woman in a French film who is really into walking on stilts yet still manages to be outrageously sexy.

PCVA says company should have warned users their phones could be disabled after installing software update
A Seattle-based law firm has filed the first legal action against Apple after the Guardian revealed how the technology giant has been deliberately “killing” its customers’ iPhone 6s if they have had them repaired by a third party.
Law firm PCVA said on Friday that it had brought a class-action lawsuit in the US district court for the northern district of California in response to Apple’s “error 53” iPhone controversy.
