    Which female should replace Hamilton on the US $10 banknote in 2020?

    The US Treasury have announced that when the design of the $10 note is replaced in 2020, it will feature a woman, rather than a man. Only two women have ever appeared on US banknotes- Martha Washington and Pocahontas, both in the mid-1800's. They won't decide which female figure will be adorning...

    Gracepoint (US remake of Broadchurch)

    The trailer for Gracepoint has been released and having watched it my first thought is- why did they bother? They may as well have just aired Broadchurch.

    Cheaper Alfa Romeos and Fiats for Australia

    For years Australians have been getting massively ripped off on the price of Alfa Romeos, Fiats, Citroens and Peugeots because they were imported not by PSA Peugeot-Citroen and Fiat SpA, but by an independent importer called Ateco, who placed huge mark-ups on the cars. But now, Fiat Chrysler...
