Apple lovers had the great news of the new iMac being released today in the UK. Alex Masters revealed that the 21.5 inch model is now available, but that the 27 inch is yet to come to Britain’s Apple stores.

On the Foreign Desk, ahead of the Catalonia’s elections last Sunday 25 December, Maria Tadeo highlighted the controversial situation that was about to hit Spain in times of economic austerity, saying that it was testing ‘the nature of the Catalan identity’ and ‘the power struggle between Madrid and Barcelona’.

Moreover, after celebrities, such as Catherine Z Jones and Robbie Williams publicly admitted they have been diagnosed Bipolar disorder, a sufferer and Chair of Bipolar UK’s Wales Advisory Panel, Nigel Griffiths, shares his very own experience into accepting it and call celebrities to ‘bring it on!’.

Facebook might always be a trending topic, but this week it got more attention after changes of privacy in ‘our best interest’ were announced on an email that was sent to every user, but probably many have missed. Emma Mundbodh looks at the updates and proposed policies.
