Google wants to help make you a better bartender — If you've ever searched for the name a capital city or a celebrity's place of birth, then you'll probably be familiar Google's Knowledge Graph. It's a cool little feature that picks out and displays the answers to questions, saving you from clicking through all of the links in your search results.

House of Lords calls for drone owners to be put on a register — Ever since a drunk intelligence officer crashed a drone on the White House lawn, questions have been raised about their safety and how such "accidents" can be avoided in the future.

Watch 'Tomorrow's World' show off CGI, 1982 style — These days, CGI is everywhere, but in 1982 it was an emergent technology that signalled a new era for movie makers and broadcasters. Always on the cutting edge of technology at the time, popular BBC show Tomorrow's World (we miss you, Phillipa!) documented some of the very first machines capable of delivering real-time effects.

Tesla warns Model S hacks could injure drivers and its brand — Every year, all publicly traded US companies are required to notify investors of the unique risks to their business. Elon Musk's Tesla abides by the same rules, and so yesterday laid out an extensive list of factors that it believes could potentially adversely affect its operations.

UK moves another step closer towards opening the first European spaceport — While the US might be leading the race to open the first commercial spaceports, the UK is working hard to close the gap. More than six months after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) shortlisted eight potential spaceport locations, the government today backed plans to make them a reality.

Netflix chases awards glory with new Idris Elba movie — Oscar season has only just come to a close, but Netflix is said to be already eyeing up a potential candidate for next year's run. Deadline reports that the streaming service has got its hands on Beasts Of No Nation, a film led by True Detective director Cary Fukunaga that stars Luther (and Pacific Rim) actor Idris Elba.

UK to build the world's first tidal lagoon power plants — It's easy to forget that it's possible to generate electricity not by burning coal or splitting atoms but using the power of the sea. However, one company has thought long and hard about the process and is set to change the way Britain generates its green energy.

GAME gets into eSports with the £20 million acquisition of Multiplay — It looks like 2015 could be a big year for competitive gaming in the UK. Just weeks after we found out where the UK's first eSports arena will be located, Britain's biggest video game retailer GAME has confirmed it's getting into the tournament business.

Google's new mobile payment platform is called Android Pay — It's shaping up to be a big year for mobile payments, what with Apple Pay enjoying rapid adoption and Samsung finally getting in the game too. Google also has a presence, but it's only very recently decided to ramp up its efforts in this space.

Cyanogen celebrates its new Qualcomm partnership with a complete rebrand — Many people know Cyanogen for delivering Android updates for phones that have long been ignored by their manufacturers. However, over the past two years, its creators have worked hard to turn it into a legitimate entity by forming a company, taking on millions of dollars in funding and embedding its open version of Android on big name devices like the OnePlus One.
