Plug pulled on web's historic coffee pot — The world's most famous coffee machine - the subject of the first live webcam broadcast - is to be consigned to web history. To net addicts yet to discover the more dynamic attractions of cyberspace, the Trojan coffee pot in Cambridge University's computer lab has held the same iconic status as Marconi's first crackling radio transmission or Gutenberg's first printed bible for almost a decade.

Narendra Modi's monogrammed suit raises nearly £450,000 at auction — The dark suit with unique monogram pinstripes worn by Narendra Modi, the prime minister of India, has been auctioned off for nearly £450,000. Diamond merchant Lalji Patel, who like Modi is from Gujarat state, made the winning bid of 43 million rupees (£448,805).

Narendra Modi’s personalised pinstripe: tasteful or crass? — Good news, pub quizzers! If you can't remember the name of the prime minister of India, and he happens to be doing the quiz too, just take a look at his suit! Helpfully, he's had his name stitched into the fabric, creating both a chalk-stripe effect and an aura of class.

NSA reforms threatened by 'business-as-usual brigade', Ron Wyden warns — The Democratic senator leading congressional efforts to rein in the National Security Agency warned on Wednesday that senior intelligence and administration officials will attempt to block any meaningful change while publicly speaking the language of reform.

Worldwide spying network is revealed — For years it has been the subject of bitter controversy, its existence repeatedly claimed but never officially acknowledged. At last, the leaked draft of a report to be published next week by the European parliament removes any lingering doubt: Echelon, a shadowy, US-led worldwide electronic spying network, is a reality.
