Tuesday 8 March marks International Women’s Day. This year the Day’s theme is #PledgeForParity, while women continue to contribute significantly to cultural, economic, social and political achievements around the world there is still much progress to be made in reaching gender parity.

Two decades later, it seems that this warning has remained unheeded. Smart technology and the Internet of Things promise a world of convenience, with devices that cater…

Like many people out there I would consider myself something of a tech-head. 
I can figure out a lot of seemingly complex technological problems (mainly thanks to Google) but I have close to no idea what is happening behind the scenes when I press search and seem to get exactly what I’m looking for.
