Amazon starts delivering packages with Robots
That's right! Amazon's started delivering goods using small robots. The system is currently being rolled out in Washington State where the small vehicle has been seen delivering parcels to residents in the area. Amazon has said that this is only the beginning.
Google announces bad news for those using ad-blockers
Google has just announced an update that will ruin the lives of people using ad-blockers which you can understand upsets a lot of people. The company which started out as a search engine, hasn't said much more than that but hopefully we will have more information soon.
English Police forces found using unreliable software
Nine police forces in England have been using software that apparently isn't completely reliable. Criminals from these nine forces have had to be let free because the software has been too slow, which is ironic since it was designed to speed up the justice system.
