David Cameron, #FurryBear
The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has admitted on ITV’s Daybreak show that he broke off from working on the cabinet #reshuffle to help his kids with their homework; a poem based on Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne’s “Furry Bear”. endearing anecdote or cynical humanising PR trick? That’s beside the point, says ITV’s Tim Gatt, who tweets:
Business networking site LinkedIn has introduced new features to its iPhone, Android and iPad apps.

A new “DNA encyclopedia” will map the function of the entire human genome, according to this article in Wired, magazine, which is pretty interesting.
