Greece is trying to change the conditions of a deal to lease 14 regional airports to a joint venture led by German airport operator Fraport (FRAG.DE), a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

Athens... wants to cut the number of airports in the deal to seven, the source said.

No mention of whether Kef would be in or out.

Ground Zero in Athens provides refuge for Londoner fleeing costs

Londoner Eleni Kyriacou is building her fashion brand on the ruins of Greece’s textile industry.

The 34-year-old designer moved to Athens in the midst of the debt crisis that shrank the country’s economy by a quarter and put more than a million Greeks out of work. The downturn that decimated the garment industry as banks froze credit is now providing Kyriacou with highly-skilled, low-cost pattern cutters and knit-makers that her hometown of London can’t match.

Tesla batteries: Elon Musk reveals house power of the future

Tesla has revealed new batteries that it hopes will allow people to power their houses, business and utilities more cheaply as well as helping people move to renewable energy.

The Powerwall home battery will be able to charge itself up by either collecting solar energy or bringing it from the power grid at less expensive time. It will then be able to give that back to houses when they need it.

Microsoft Edge: Internet Explorer is dead... but can you actually tell the difference?

Microsoft Edge - formerly known as ‘Project Spartan’ - will be the default browser for Windows 10 and promises to be faster and leaner than the hated IE.
http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/apr/30/spot-the-difference-internet-explorer-is-dead-long-live-microsoft-edge





Hm, not everyone hates IE and I can't see IE dying off quickly as Windows 7 market share is increasing, even though Windows 10 release is 'imminent'. So far as I know, edge won't run on Windows 7 so, unless everyone dumps XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and moves to 10, IE will still be around for a while.
