If you've been a bit bored by F1 qualifying for a while, as drivers sit in the pits until the last minute or hang around in the middle of the track after finishing a fast lap, then the FIA's new qualifying format is going to prove a revalation. Will it be edge of the seat stuff? Quite possibly.

As the F1 teams pack their kit to head to Melbourne, I have one thing to say on a personal note: it's good to be back.

Force India 2016 car courtesy and copyright Force India   There's no secret that brash Indian businessman Vijay Mallya's business model for Force India depended on the success of his other businesses and his relationships with other companies. Kingfisher Airlines crashed (the company, not its planes) despite Mallya's highly publicised claims that they had the best looking stewardesses in the sky. But that was not the only dark cloud in his firmament. This time...

This might just be the most subversive interview ever given on TV. For sure, it's the video the FBI, DoJ and Manhattan DA don't want you to see. But more than that: for all phone and computer users, it's a massive wake-up call. Good morning, John MacAfee, and thank you. We think.

Much political capital is being made of the USA's dispute with Apple over encryption of its iPhone and of Google's support for Apple. But the fact is that we've all got peel in this game and the arguments on both sides are insufficiently made.

A long article in the New York Times this week is headlined "Bernie Sanders Is Jewish, but He Doesn’t Like to Talk About It." The premise is simple: Sanders is not Jewish enough, or not overtly Jewish enough, for those Jews who want all Jews to wear a metaphorical yellow star. But it's not only Jews and it's not only Americans who want their politicians to put their religion front and centre - and to define a country with reference to the criteria set by those same outspoken groups. Are we seeing the death of the separation of Church and State?

AdBlock Plus, by eyeo.com, is by far the leading add-on for internet browsers whose users want to prevent the display of unwanted ads. AdBlock Plus is open that it allows certain companies to be "whitelisted" upon payment of a fee. There is absolutely nothing hidden or underhand. However, the choice of companies has, for a year, been the source of many complaints with one "promoted content" provider being the prime suspect. Taboola is the provider that has become especially hated, not because of what it does but because of who it does it for - and for some of its tech practices.

Every day, criminals post to the internet illegal copies of artistic works and do it for profit from credit card fraud, the installation of malware on the victim's computer or, at its simplest, selling copies of the work and denying the authors and publishers their revenue. These criminals' websites are indexed by search engines. Worse, the search engines link to the tools needed to create illegal copies and breach Amazon.Com's intellectual property and branding in the process. It needs to stop.

I should, I suppose, feel a little sorry for the senior management of Pantai Holdings Berhad: they own some fine hospitals that provide excellent care. Unfortunately, someone there has chosen some seriously dodgy characters to undertake their telephone canvassing.

<b>Nigel Morris-Cotterill</b> documents an afternoon stolen by unprofessional and, arguably, criminal canvassers - and the harm it can cause a company that has worked hard to build its reputation.

Mr Hiroshi Nakaso, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Japan spoke at the Japan Society in New York, New York City on the 12 February 2016. He says that his primary goal is to overcome deflation and that this can be done by increasing the both the demand and the supply side of the economy, in particular by encouraging more women into the workforce. It works in Sweden, he says. He also wants all fit and healthy elderly people to work.

The BBC needs revenue and that revenue has to come from advertising and sponsorship. Indeed, although in the UK its services are commercial free, its external broadcasts have long been advertisement-supported. Today it crossed into dangerous territory.

Fraudsters rely on illusion. They depend on showing you something so that you do not recognise a truth that they want to obscure.

Many fraudsters are clever, many are well prepared, but the vast majority are opportunists ..

Whether you call the black and gold cars Lotus after their sponsor or Renault after the tech, they still have their engine manufacturer's logo proudly displayed. Caterham (which has the right to the name Team Lotus but doesn't use it) also carry Renault branding. But for the Korean GP, that's going to change and almost no one outside Korea will know why

There are those who misguidedly think that the world would be better off without lawyers. The UK legal profession's problem is that it has for so long abandoned its long-standing principles that it's become utterly rotten from within. Add in the deliberate destruction of the profession by successive governments and it's no surprise that there is a crisis from which few will emerge unscathed.

It would be the most anticipated mobile phone launch - bar none - if Samsung wasn't such a media tart that it places PR stories across the spectrum of press and lazy bloggers pounce on their every word, "revealing" "leaks" and providing fodder for indiscriminate search engines that these days are seemingly just as likely to be seeing requests for information on the company's products as they are for porn.
