Where’s my Pinterest Android app? - http://www.intomobile.com/2012...
You know about Pinterest, right? At the moment it’s holding the third most used social network spot and it keeps growing like crazy. I love it and I want to use it more, but I need an app for that. Lucky iOS users can already do their pin-schmoozing while on the go, whereas the rest of us with Android devices need to rely exclusively on our computers, which is well, kinda boring. We *must* have a mobile app. Where is it? Why don’t they release it for God’s sake? I ... Read more Where’s my Pinterest Android app? originally appeared on IntoMobile.com on 2012-04-11T09:32:03Z.

Vodafone becomes the first in Europe to offer operator billing for Android apps - http://www.intomobile.com/2011...
You buy a new fancy smartphone from the shops, take it home, and then after you get all your data on there you start looking for applications to make your shiny toy unique to your individual needs. If said smartphone was an iPhone, then all you need to purchase apps is your iTunes username and password. If you picked up an Android device … then you’re going to be put through the hell of having to enter your 16 digit credit card number, expiration date, security code, and more, just ...

Medical research warning over human cells in animals
Panel of scientists and ethicists says research on animals that contain material from humans should be more tightly regulated Medical research on animals that contain material from humans – such as brain cells – should be more tightly regulated, according to a report from a leading panel of scientists and ethicists. The report, which included a public consultation, says such research needs more scrutiny and clearer legal boundaries. Scientists already use animals that contain human material in work to understand medical conditions such as Down's syndrome. But the report's authors said politicians should devise regulations to cover likely advances. The team highlighted future research into human cognition and reproduction as areas of greatest concern to the public. Martin Bobrow, professor of medical genetics at the University of Cambridge, led the panel set up by the Academy of Medical Sciences. He said: "Where people worry is when you get to the brain, the germ cells and the sentinel...

Rebekah Brooks's arrest damaged her reputation, says her lawyer
Former NI chief to appear before MPs, following nine-hour interview in which lawyer says no allegations were made The Metropolitan police put no allegations to Rebekah Brooks during nine hours of interviews, her solicitor said on Monday, as he described the decision to arrest her as causing "enormous reputational damage". Stephen Parkinson, of law firm Kingsley Napley, said the former News International chief executive was not shown documents connecting her to any crime during questioning on Sunday. It was also confirmed on Monday that Brooks will definitely appear before MPs on the Commons culture, media and sport select committee on Tuesday to be quizzed about the phone hacking affair. She will answer MPs' questions from 3.30pm, with Rupert and James Murdoch appearing at 2.30pm. "The position of Rebekah Brooks can be simply stated: She is not guilty of any criminal offence," Parkinson said. "The position of the Metropolitan police is less easy to understand. Despite arresting her...

Andy Coulson, Rebekah Brooks, Les Hinton and Met Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson - see what their resignation statements had in common • Get the data The News of the World phone hacking scandal has prompted resignation after resignation, and with each one has come a statement, issued to the press.

Phone hacking: how the News of the World hid behind the Yates whitewash - http://www.guardian.co.uk/media...
The apology by Scotland Yard's assistant commissioner, John Yates, for failing to reopen the News of the World phone hacking investigation in July 2009 reminds me of the paper's response. The decision, which he admitted to the Sunday Telegraph was "a pretty crap one", was seized on by a grateful NoW. Its editorial, No inquiries, no charges, no evidence, is still up on its site. Reading it once again is a reminder of the way in which paper relied on the imprimatur of police officers and ex-police officers to support its strenuous denials. The leader opens by referring to Andy Hayman, a former Met police assistant commissioner, who headed an inquiry into phone hacking on behalf of News International and who also happened to write on police matters for The Times. Here are some of the high(low)lights: "Last week the News of the World was the subject of some ferocious and, at times, hysterical attacks on its credibility, integrity and journalistic standards. The onslaught was led by a...
