Introducing G Suite (Google Apps for Work - rebranded)

We created Google Apps for Work ten years ago (back when it was Google Apps for Your Domain) to do just that—to help people everywhere work and innovate together, so businesses can move faster and go bigger.

And today, we’re introducing a new name that better reflects this mission: G Suite.

G Suite is a set of intelligent apps—Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts, and more—designed to bring people together, with real-time collaboration built in from the start. And there’s a lot more on the way. Because we believe that when organisations break down silos, connect people and empower them to work together, we get the speed, agility and impact needed to compete in today’s market. So in the spirit of teamwork, we partnered with some of our favourite illustrators from around the world to bring our ideas to life with their iconic creativity.

75% motorists want tax disc revival

This Saturday (October 1) marks the second anniversary of the loss of the tax disc. The move was meant to save the DVLA £10 million a year but instead revenue from vehicle excise duty fell £93 million.
In a research study conducted by uSwitch, three quarters of the 6,018 respondents called for the tax disc to be brought back.
Kasey Cassells, insurance expert at, said: “A gap has clearly been left by the paper disc, but the move towards modernisation doesn’t go far enough.
“Despite receiving reminders by post, motorists with the best intentions are getting caught out by forgetting their renewal date. The DVLA should consider more relevant notifications, like text alerts which have proved successful for the NHS.”

BlackBerry stops making hardware

BlackBerry will no longer manufacture its own smartphones, choosing instead to focus on its software expertise. The move ends its 20 year history in hardware production, which started in 1996 with a two-way pager.

Its announcement comes one year after CEO John Chen said he would close the handset division if it could not become profitable by September 2016. In BlackBerry’s Q2 2017 earnings report, released today, Chen confirmed the decision to stop making handsets.
