Prof Alan Woodward decodes the reliability of personal email server Nomx
An investigation has thrown doubt on claims that the small, personal email server Nomx can provide "absolute security". Created by entrepreneur Will Donaldson, Nomx says it uses the "world's most secure communications protocol" to protect email messages. But security analysts cracked the device's simple passwords and hacked its hardware and software.

Conservatives still on track to win the election, according to polls
While the Conservatives are still on course to win the election, the margin of victory is becoming less certain. A YouGov poll has found that Labour was up two points to 31%. A poll for the Sunday Times showed the Tories had a 13-point lead with 44% of the vote, yet a YouGov poll gave the Tories a 23-point lead last week, showing a dip of 10 points.

What can we expect from Trump's next 100 days?
Its the morning after Mayday. Which also marked the exact end of Donald Trumps first 100 days. Not sure how many of us were celebrating that . But as we return to work and the Donald settles down for his NEXT 100 days, it seems a good time to take stock of his tenure for business -- and where it goes next.

Turbulent times for Twitter
A mixed bag for Twitter: The number of people using the social network has risen 14% and the firm's losses narrowed in the first three months of this year. But ad revenue fell by almost 8% from a year earlier. And now a row's brewing with the government about the decision to withdraw access to user data used to investigate potential terrorist plots.

How can we plan our retirement with no government guarantee on pensions?
The Prime Minister has refused to guarantee the triple lock on pensions. It's understood that Mrs May is coming under increasing pressure to drop the pledge, which means pensions always rise by 2.5%, from the Conservative manifesto. But with no guarantees on pensions, how can we fund our retirement?

1 in 5 Europeans rarely carry cash in our ever-growing cashless society

Developments in technology and new payment methods are making the shift to a cashless economy ever more possible, and new findings reveal that society's desire to follow is not far behind.

How do you move on from a high-profile job?
The BP chief who famously told reporters he wanted his life back after the company's Deepwater Horizon catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico is stepping down as chairman of the oil and gas company Genel Energy. The Kurdistan venture was seen as a second coming for Mr Hayward. But it hasn't fulfilled its promise on his watch and Genel's shares closed almost 5% higher on his replacement.
