Singer Cher Lloyd was thrown a bottle of urine at her while she was performing at the V Festival

Festivals: Why stage a dirty protest when you can just tune out?

It's not the first time a musician has been pelted with something while performing on stage and it certainly won't be the last. But even Cher Lloyd's biggest detractors must have felt sorry for the singer after a bottle of urine was thrown at her while she performed at the V Festival in Hylands Park, Chelmsford this weekend. The former X Factor contestant was only on her second song when she was hit, causing her to flee the stage. Being a festival with four main arenas, it's a shame the unhappy reveller didn't, you know, just go and watch something else.

Friends Reunited 'now provokes the same nostalgia we reserve for Opal Fruits or Saturday afternoon wrestling on ITV'

Cyber Culture: What happens to the long-lost social networks?

An email slipped into millions of inboxes last week carrying the news that Google Wave, an ambitiously complex social network whose intricacies baffled most of those who tried it, was finally going to be put out of its misery on 30 April, less than three years after its birth. At about the same time a voice boomed from beyond the grave. It belonged to Friends Reunited, a pioneering social network that now provokes the same nostalgia we reserve for Opal Fruits or Saturday afternoon wrestling on ITV. The plan for the old-schoolmates hangout is to lure us back by positioning the site as a memory stash; a place where we can wallow in nostalgia, upload old photos and browse through archive shots from the Press Association. Here were two different answers to the same question: what do you do with a social network when we no longer care about it? Kill it? Or try to claw us back? It's a question that dozens of services are facing.
