Researchers found that the increasing winds are cooling water on the bottom of the ocean, forcing it to travel faster, creating turbulance as it mixed with warmer waters above.

Experts said the mechanism has not been factored into current models for predicting the impact of increasing global temperatures on our oceans, meaning forecasts should be altered.

Genius catches Google copying song lyrics

You can read more of the article on the WSJ's AMP page.

It's insane that Google would deny it. They pay Apple billions of dollars to be the default search engine, why not work a deal with Genius for their content?

Sony digital voice recorder (ICD-TX800)

Looks more like a GoPro than a voice recorder, but that's exactly what it is.

The ICD-TX800 has 16GB of built-in memory, so you have plenty of storage space for your audio. Record for a maximum of 238 hours in one go, or store up to 4000 separate files.

Price: £157
