The world's cheapest smartphone costing just £3 is finally set to begin shipping later this week in an attempt to connect poorer regions of India.
Aiming to make internet access affordable to millions of people across the country, the Freedom 251 device goes on sale on June 30 and will only be available to pre-registered users in India.
The tiny town of Kaitangata on the South Island of New Zealand has a relatively unique problem - too many affordable houses and job opportunities and not enough people to fill them.
Now residents are on a recruitment drive to get people living in the country's more expensive cities to relocate.
About 800 people live in Kaitangata, which is part of the Clutha district.
Amenities include a local primary school, a bar and a pizza parlour.

The forces of globalisation are causing havoc for European workers as they are for American workers. If you are a white working class man (in particular) the combined effects of immigration, free trade and technology have made your job and your wages less secure. Policy makers in the UK and the US have singularly failed to address these issues in any meaningful way. If the Brexit camp wins next week it could suggest the global anti-globalisation mood (if such a thing is possible) is stronger than we realised.
Donald Trump and Boris Johnson, the leader of the Leave campaign, have tapped into a similar public mood of disgruntlement. On both sides of the Atlantic, a lot of people feel they've been handed a bad deal. In the UK, it's European bureaucrats in Brussels who are to blame. In the US, it's elected politicians in Washington who are held responsible. Mr Johnson promises Brits a better deal if they throw off the onerous yoke of EU regulations. Mr Trump promises Americans a better deal if they put him in the White House.

If you're an avid follower of social media you will recognise Mzznaki Tetteh. She is a nurse from Ghana whose engagement photographs went viral on several social media platforms last week after hundreds of people left mean-spirited comments aimed at her figure.
In January 2016, Facebook responded to calls from gun control advocatesand vowed to clamp down on potentially dangerous gun sales on its site. Legitimate gun dealers with Federal Firearms Licences - carrying out necessary background checks - are allowed to go about their business. But private sales are prohibited and, in theory, should be taken down immediately. But is this happening?
