1.  Rumours of its death have been exaggerated but is print finally dead?

2.  Another Google Vs Apple battle kicks off as Google launches, One Pass, its charging service for publishers who want to establish digital revenue streams, just days after Apple launched their rival subscription service.

Red Cross’s reply: “We’ve deleted the rogue tweet but rest assured the Red Cross is sober and we’ve confiscated the keys.” Sympathy and donations poured in and even the beer company got on board. http://tinyurl.com/67qfkdy

8. Once again the poor broadband infrastructure in this country hit the headlines this week.

And finally…

10. A more serious Tweet gaffe – for a brief period it seemed it was RIP Mick Jagger this week when someone tweeted that he was dead and Twitter went into overdrive. His newly launched website www.mickjagger.com can be found here- great for all things Mick-related.
