Monday 22:44 GMT

Saudi Arabia on Sunday denied reports that its crown prince was bidding to acquire the famed Manchester United soccer club, suggesting it’s all been a misunderstanding.

How smart are Gmail’s ‘smart replies’?

Monday 08:03 GMT

The blandness of Gmail’s smart replies had been their camouflage, the processing power of 10m moon landings, disguised in a sea of inane pleasantries and errant exclamation marks.

It’s odd that Gmail smart replies have only been around since 2017, since they’re the kind of subtly ever-present tool that now seems always to have been there. Seeking answers, I stopped resisting and spent an entire week surrendering to its every whim.
