The UK has suffered its first fatal terrorist attack since 7 July 2007. Running people down, hacking down people large knives is so common in some parts of the world that it warrants a small note on the inside pages of newspapers. But those attacks are usually related to organised crime or some perceived personal slight. But the murderous attack in Woolwich in south-east London was neither of those.

Google has announced that its Checkout service is to be abandoned as of 20 November 2013. It's focussing on payments for non-physical goods and shipping other providers off to third parties, signalling a surrender to PayPal and Amazon Payments. It's another example of Google building a product and orphaning users.What's worse - it's gonna cost you. Google has developed what amounts to a corporate social responsibility product that is a huge benefit to, especially, very small businesses. Now, having encouraged reliance on it, it's kicking them in the most tender region.

Yes, I know it's Wednesday. Yes, I know I'm supposed to write a race report on Sunday night or Monday morning. But it's hard to do that when there wasn't actually a race. The Spanish Grand Prix 2013 was like a NASCAR race with corners and no crashes. At least it didn't last 500 laps.

If it's got lies in it, it's a spam and putting an address or unsub link doesn't turn lies into truth. But really, one should be able to trust someone promoting "bible verses," right?

Nope.

Pirelli made a good decision for the Bahrain race: take two tyre compounds that are very similar. That negated pretty much all the pit-lane decisions that have led to what basically amounts to racing by remote control. But all was not rosy.

Criticism of Margaret Thatcher is often based on flawed reasoning - and false statements that have been too-often repeated. Nigel Morris-Cotterill, Head, The Anti Money Laundering Network, ultimate owner of ChiefOfficers.Net presents a balanced viewpoint. Actually, he says, she created a business-friendly environment. How can that be a bad thing?

The bombing of the Boston Marathon gained justifiably widespread publicity. But it was not the biggest terrorist event of the long weekend, nor even the event which could have proved the most deadly. But another event went largely unnoticed by the "western" media. Why? It happened in Taiwan.Then there's the 16 killed in an attack in Pakistan.

There is much talk of successes against terrorism, in part as the justification for placing restrictions on long- and hard-won freedoms from oppressive government. But as the bombs placed at the route for the Boston Marathon shows, identifying and containing terrorist threats is next to impossible.

Some say that Mark Webber is the unluckiest man in F1. That's wrong: he's one of the unluckiest men in any sport. But it's also true that one makes one's own luck.

It's not the fault of the track and it's not the fault of the Formula One teams. For sure, it's not the fault of the drivers. The 2013 Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai proved for once and for all that the tyres dictate the strategy and - even more ridiculously - the racing. If you thought team orders affect who races who, you need to hear the pit-to-car radios in the Shanghai race. And dust off that Scalextric that's been hibernating in the attic.

The official word from Red Bull Racing is that Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber have "settled" the issue that arose when Vettel ignored team orders in Malaysia and took away Webber's victory. But as always, the devil is in the detail.
