Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives. Should you be unsure, we need to talk. Or, perhaps, you need to venture into the world of online dating. OKCupid, a site that seems to have been around since the internet was invented, has decided to adopt the infamous abbreviation for its first-ever ad campaign.

Summer evenings, great windows open to the south: globe-trotting pianist Hugh Tinney left has been appointed artistic director of the classical festival-with-Palladian-mansions-attached: the Music Festival in Great Irish Houses.
