In praise of … Dame Shirley Bassey’s drive for vocal perfection — There has always been something uncompromising about Dame Shirley Bassey. Not just her full-blooded vocal delivery, but the standards she applies to herself and to others. Recorded discussing a rendering of the James Bond theme GoldenEye by that other vocal heavyweight Tina Turner, Shirley was less than impressed.

Christmas gift guide - sport and fitness — The guilty burden of a sporty gift is that I might have to actually use it. That said, this collection is so pleasingly well engineered that I'll have no excuse for following-up on new year resolutions.

The rise of Anonymous hacktivists - Tech Weekly podcast — This week on Tech Weekly with Leigh Alexander we hear from anthropologist and author Gabriella Coleman, McGill University's Wolfe Chair in Scientific & Technological Literacy, on her latest book Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous an in-depth and comprehensive look at the hactivist and prankster culture of Anonymous.

Speaking at Web Summit in Dublin, Baker claimed that moves by Google and Apple and others to encrypt user data was more hostile to western intelligence gathering than to surveillance by China or Russia.

Facebook plans to offer the world - virtually. But can it deliver? — 'For us, products really don't get that interesting to turn into businesses until they have about one billion people using them," Mark Zuckerberg told investors last week. Facebook hit that dizzy one-billion mark two years ago. Now 1.35 billion people - roughly equal to the population of China - log on to the social network site every month.

Google and Facebook: voracious giants with the power to create the future — The web's biggest consumer companies make the bulk of their incomes, and have built up vast assets, from targeted advertising. It accounts for around 90% of Facebook's revenue and much the same for Google.
