Netgear’s new X8 boasts the first active antennas on a router, and an incredible 5.3 gigabits of Wi-Fi bandwidth. Do the buzzwords justify the price, or is this massive router less impressive than its specifications suggest?
The viral videos have become an industry, now with their own gathering – and with that comes a ‘cattoo’ parlor, astrology readings and a sexed-up music video
When Joel Shepard started selling tickets for an internet cat video festival, he wasn’t sure how much interest there would be beyond the cat fanatics (of which I am one).
Shepard, video curator at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, was astonished when tickets sold out a month before the festival. And then came the emails.

With the the prime minister otherwise engaged, the defence of HMRC’s ‘sweetheart deal’ was left to a delighted treasury minister
When George Osborne typed “How much tax should I pay?” into Google, only one answer appeared: “Absolutely nothing for 10 years and then only £130m if you twist my arm.” Having entered the same question into a different search engine and come up with a figure roughly 10 times higher, John McDonnell asked the chancellor to explain to the House of Commons why he reckoned the deal HMRC had reached with Google was such “a major success”.
Osborne checked his diary. “What a pity,” he declared. “I’ve only just this minute arranged to meet Bill Gates in Liverpool so I’ll have to pass. So I guess you’ll have to make do with one of my sidekicks.” David Gauke, financial secretary to the Treasury, looked less than thrilled at having been handed this hospital pass. When the prime minister has gone out of his way not to hail the Google deal as a massive success and the mayor of London has described it as derisory, you know you are in for a bad afternoon.
