    Did you know that on September 29, 1829, the British Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel established the London Metropolitan Police force, which is where the nickname ‘bobbies’ (and lesser used ‘peelers’) to mean policemen comes from? Of course you did.

    Had you been reading the papers that day, you’d have been awash in a sea of articles about the new punitive and preventative powers that the Met Police brought. What you’d have not had is a weekend round up of all the news you’d missed in the run-up to such an important day.

    Thankfully, we’re here to stop that ever happening to you in the tech world, so make yourself a coffee, silence your phone for 10 minutes and catch up on all the best tech news and features you’ve missed from across the last two days while you were doing other things.
