US tech scene special: Tech weekly podcast — On this week's edition we cross the Atlantic to find out what's hot and happening on the US tech scene. Jemima Kiss is joined by Sam Thielman, the Guardian's tech reporter in New York, as well as tech team regulars Alex Hern and Samuel Gibbs, to talk about the Lily selfie drone, about trouble brewing for YouTube and, in more dramatic style, for RadioShack.

Dear Google: open letter from 80 academics on 'right to be forgotten' — It is one year since the European Court of Justice ruled that citizens have the right to request that Google remove links to information about them if these are out of date, misreprentative or irrelevant.

Google must be more open on 'right to be forgotten', academics warn in letter — Google needs to be more transparent in the way it handles so-called "right to be forgotten" requests, with 80 leading academics writing an open letter that accuses the firm of developing its policies "in the dark".

Aleks Krotoski's seven years of Tech Weekly podcasts — After more than seven years and about 270 podcasts, it's presenter Aleks Krotoski's final podcast in the Tech Weekly presenter's chair. So this week Aleks and the team cast their minds back to 2007 when Tech Weekly was born and look at the extraordinary technological developments that have happened in that time.

Serve up an advantage with the Babolat Play connected tennis racket — The Babolat AeroPro Drive Play connected tennis racket comes with a sensor embedded in the handle plus matching app that syncs via Bluetooth, recording the minutiae of your playing performance. The truly fearless (or perhaps just the very best) players can share their stats with other users via the app.

Labour: 'Technology can stave off the crisis in the NHS' — "Would you like an easy peeler?" Liz Kendall asks me, pulling out a massive bag of satsumas. The job, says the shadow minister for care and older people, and the Labour candidate for Leicester West, is extremely unhealthy, though that's not the biggest problem with working in politics.

Turning off technology is about mental wellbeing - not becoming a digital hermit — At a conference in Cannes eight years ago, I sat next to a producer who was working on an ambitious TV project about anthropology. We were both listening to a speech by a TV executive and I was in full conference flow, frenetically typing (badly) and flicking between emails.

What if a bionic leg is so good that someone chooses to amputate? — Hugh Herr says he wants to eliminate disability. After 50 minutes listening to him speak at SXSW in Texas, it's hard not to believe that he'll do it. Herr is an impressive figure behind a podium; tall, imposing and with a well-cut suit that stops just below the knee.

Periscope's up! Twitter's live-streaming app is exciting us, but here's how it could be better — Periscope is so hot right now. The Twitter-owned live video streaming app that lets viewers comment on what they're seeing and the Periscopers (is that a word yet?) respond in real time may only be 10 days old but it's already causing ripples as it rises above the competition.

Twitter reshuffles European management team — Twitter is reorganising its European management team following the return of its advertising boss Ali Jafari to the company's headquarters in San Francisco in June 2015. Bruce Daisley will become vice president of direct sales for Europe and remains managing director for the UK for the time being.
