BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi today today attacked Sonia Gandhi over her assertion that Congress stood for democratic values, citing the ruling party's "refusal" to consult BJP in selecting the country's President and former PM Indira Gandhi's targeting of the media during Emergency.

Despite his bold words, President Goodluck Jonathan is failing to address the problem, says Simon Allison At the beginning of this year, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said its only a matter of time before his government defeats Islamist militant group Boko Haram .

Even then, in January, these bold words rang hollow (and it didnt help the tense sectarian atmosphere that the president was speaking from a Church of Christ pulpit). Having abandoned any form of diplomacy, Jonathans administration was eight months into an all-out military offensive against Boko Haram in its northern strongholds. Three states were, and remain, under a State of Emergency, with curfews in place and mobile phone signals interrupted to disrupt communications. The army was out in force, hunting the militants down, while air force ...

In a bid to catch up with the iPhone and Android, Microsoft has added features that closely resemble what you'll find on its rivals

For years now, Microsoft has been playing catch-up in the smartphone race as Apple's iPhone and Google's Android have raced ahead.
