When a customer of Malaysian mobile telephone services provider DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd, part of the Telenor Group, was travelling and lost the credit card used to pay his mobile phone bill, he found one obstacle after another to trying to make a payment and to add a new card to his account to cover future payments. Then Digi started making threats.
David Cameron, speaking in Japan where he is attending the G7 Summit, has said that the young, in Britain, should register to vote. He says it may be the most important vote of their lives and it is for them to decide what kind of country they want to grow up in and their children and grandchildren to grow up in. He's exactly right.
And when they do, they should vote to leave the EU. This is why. And as someone who supported the "yes" vote in 1975, I start with a mea culpa, says Nigel Morris-Cotterill
Niki Lauda shoots from the lip and is consistently quick to blame Hamilton for any incident involving the two Mercedes drivers. Toto Wolff is far more measured. Within minutes of Mercedes' premature end of the Spanish Grand Prix, both had delivered their verdict. Lauda was, as usual, critical of Hamilton. Wolff gave a technical answer that hardly anyone understood but it did not say Hamilton was to blame. And it was right that it did not because while we mortals do not have access to Rosberg's data, we do have access to Hamilton's in-car footage and while we cannot say Rosberg was at fault, we can say, with certainty, that Hamilton was not.
Writing about the scandal of claims companies charging thousands of millions to fill in forms people can do for free, the Independent carried two ads for one such company - on the same page as the article!
While the Conservative Party is seemingly on a course to self-destruction and Jeremy Corby wrestles with bizarre claims of anti-Semitism (the protesters don't appear to know what a Semite is) and both parties wondering how to spin the overall picture presented by last week's elections, Gordon Brown, one of, perhaps the primary, architect of the collapse of the British economy who failed to get a decent job in Europe and the IMF after his delusional claim that he saved the world, has weighed in. He's confirmed one significant fact that most politicians are reluctant to point out: the EU is, widely and fundamentally, a coalition of socialist states. Britain (at least parts of it) remain...
After New York copied the Zero Tolerance initiative originated by Cleveland Police in the UK, the Big Apple saw the blight of widespread crime falling away. With all due respect to economists who claim that demographic and social changes were responsible, there is no doubt that strong policing made a difference.
So it's a surprise to learn that the city now appears to be turning its back on such methods to focus on large scale crime instead.
This image from The Guardian shows Dominic Chappell standing somewhere sunny, in front of lots of yachts, saying he moved a large sum of money out of the accounts of BHS days before calling in the administrators.

If there is one race that Valentino Rossi can gloat over, it's the Spanish GP at Jerez. He wins here more than anyone else which always gets up the noses of the Spanish riders. But not the Spanish fans who don't seem to care if their riders don't win - so long as its Rossi that beats them.
Just as in Bahrain, first lap argy-bargy created the drama and shaped much of this year's Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. And yet in-car footage shows a disturbing similarity between many of the incidents.
There is a media flurry as ill-informed media organisations jump up looking to unsettle governments by showing that national leaders have used off-shore vehicles for asset protection and tax avoidance. Some may also have used them for tax evasion. In addition to politicians, business leaders and ordinary families are revealed as using such techniques. But behind the over-excited and sometimes inaccurate reporting, lies a remarkably unremarkable story that starts with a theft of confidential data.
If data were goods, then the media would be dealing in stolen property.
When WhatsApp was bought by Facebook, the immediate fear was not the NSA or other government snooping (most aware users took that for granted anyway) but the likelihood that FaceBook would link WhatsApp activity to FaceBook activity giving the company access to far more information about one's life than users might like. Yesterday, WhatsApp addressed that concern. But before it did so, it quietly provided a back door to all your WhatsApp data and sold it as a benefit.
