The very best documentaries draw you in even if you don’t care about cold-case crimes or political campaigns or jailed artists or sleep disorders.

MICROSOFT should compensate long-suffering Windows 10 users bogged down by technical issues after being forced into updating to its latest software, says Which? Though the tech giant hasn't committed to a payout, it did recently fork up £150 to a user who had all his files wiped out by the operating system – with the firm's customer support unable to find a fix. Which? is urging it to issue similar payments to its wider user base. A recent survey of 1,100 Windows 10 users carried out by the consumer publication found that half had experienced some kind of problem with the operating system.

My mornings start the same way my nights end: lying on my bed, laptop propped up on my legs as I watch a series of different Vine compilations on YouTube. I’ve seen most of the compilations at least once, scrolling through the recommended videos off to the side just to ensure I haven’t missed any. The compilations include the same Vines for the most part, pulling from other collections, sharing the same six-second video of a potato on a string flying around a room. Vine compilations gather the weird, the best, the forgotten, the treasured and, most importantly, capture the memory of why we loved Vine in the first place.

Instagram is fun, but I wouldn’t think twice about not having it should the app suddenly … [Read more...] about Vine compilations are the best part of YouTube
