Not enough Apple in your life? Get the new iPad Mini!
Just two weeks ago Apple sold their 100 millionth iPad. But seemingly unsatisfied with this, they have unveiled yet another product, the iPad Mini, in their attempt to dominate the fast growing tablet market. The new iPad mini can be held in one hand and is a quarter thinner than the new fourth generation iPad which was launched at the same event. Small and nimble, fast and slick, the iPad Mini is not radically different, but we still want to get our hands on one! The iPad Mini starts at £269. See you at the Apple store!

Women win equal pay fight in 'landmark' ruling
Women who worked for Birmingham City Council have won a Supreme Court equal pay compensation fight which could allow thousands of workers to bring claims over equal pay dating back years. Law firm Leigh Day & Co said the judgment "effectively extends the time limit for equal pay claims from six months to six years, the biggest change to Equal Pay legislation since it was introduced in 1970, with huge implications for thousands of workers".
