Virgin plans to be the first British airline to enable in flight calls.Previously for fear of interference with the plane's technology, using a mobile phone was strictly banned.
The service will be limited though, with only ten passengers at a time being able to place a call due to limited bandwidth.As well as that, the cost of a call will be £1 a minute.
Once this service develops and the costs go down,will a flight become noisy with people's ringtones going off and people talking, much like a bus.
The only reason that this is being implemented id to satisfy consumers demand for connectivity when and wherever they are. In 99% of situations people can cope with not answering an email or responding to a text. The same is planned for the London Underground where there are plans for internet and phone connectivity.
Do we really need to be connected all the time? Will we really not cope without our phone for a few hours?

The year on year operating profit of 02 has fallen to  € 334m  after its revenues have fallen by 6%.
This comes after it's lucrative two year contracts  on Iphone's have ended, and now that it is no longer the exclusive mobile network that offers the much coveted Iphone contract, many of its customers are going elsewhere. the network attempted to retain customers by slashing the price of the newest iphone, the 4s. As well as this it also increased the amount of handset upgrades. A spokesperson said, " The company's efforts in retaining the customer base have shown positive signs in contract churn which will translate into higher retained value going forward". 
revenue fell by 6% to  €1.719bn in the first quarter, this was an improvement from the revenue decline of 6.8% of the previous quarter.

Facebook has opened an app store that will promote or sell programs that operate using its social network
This comes ahead of Facebook’s stock market float thought to be worth up to  $100 billion, and In a statement, Facebook said "If users increasingly access Facebook mobile products as a substitute for access through personal computers, and if we are unable to successfully implement monetisation strategies for our mobile users, or if we incur excessive expenses in this effort, our financial performance and ability to grow revenue would be negatively affected."
This comes after another announcement in which Facebook admitted that growth in mobile use could hurt future advertising revenue.  

Driverless cars could soon be the reality, especially in the American state Nevada, where Google has managed to get a it's prototype self-drive car approved. The cars safety record so far is impressive, this model a modified Toyota Prius has covered 140,000  miles without any accidents.This could be the future of motoring and with other car manufacturers racing to build their own prototypes, it won't be long before they hit the road. But will this really take off? Would people really buy a self-drive car? 

There unlimited possibilities to how far this could go, and plenty of questions as well. What would self-drive cars do to sports like F1? Would this put an end to drink driving? If so this could be a huge development that will hopefully put a end to the thousands of casualties of drink drivers every year.
In my opinion, this is a huge development and one day in the not so distant future, we will all find ourselves
owning one instead of our current cars. This will make the car just like planes and trains, were you will be able to just hop on and off no matter what your condition is: blind,drunk or incapable of driving in any way.One question that still needs to be answered though is what will happen to racing, will it become fully automated? This will change the sport's skilled drivers into programmers and ultimately it will be a race to see who is the best at tech and software. Isn't this already what F1 is about?
