Which way will British government jump on controversial trade deal?

21 Jul 2016 by Pelle Neroth

It is my contention that the British vote for Brexit wasn't so much against European bureaucrats and parliamentarians as against immigration and globalisation, as I argued in this month's magazine column.

The long ARM of SoftBank

18 Jul 2016 by Chris Edwards

The last time the pound slumped in value, speculation bubbled up of a possible hostile takeover by Intel, aiming to take out the biggest threat to the x86 architecture. This time it's a lot friendlier and from a company with very few concrete reasons to make the deal other than to make some sort of claim on the internet of things (IoT).

Brave New World

15 Jul 2016 by Vitali Vitaliev

I have just returned from Kiev - my first visit to my native Ukraine after 22 years of absence (last time I was there in 1994 making a Channel 4 documentary "The Train to Freedom", and Ukraine was then crumbling apart - on the brink of social and economic collapse).

The Brexit Fallout

14 Jul 2016 by Dickon Ross

Industry is still reeling from the UK's referendum vote to leave the European Union, now known worldwide as the Brexit.

25 Jun 2016 by Paul Dempsey

The signature British response to a crisis is (1) sleep on it, (2) make a cup of tea, (3) roll up those sleeves and 'get it sorted'. But that isn't going to work this time, is it? After the referendum's 'Leave' victory, there has been plenty of talk about bringing the nation together but, admittedly viewed from a distance, the task seems insurmountable.

Stand Aside Bill Gates

9 Jun 2016 by Justin Pollard

Having a wonderful idea and making any money out of it can be two very different things, as many an engineer can be heard muttering. Almost by definition, creating something revolutionary means there's not yet a ready market for it and most people won't understand it. A lesser engineer might give up, but Al Gross just kept engineering the modern world, whether he got properly paid and whether we liked it or not.
