Clare Hopping 7 min 7 sec ago Business IT workers don't like their jobs. At least, that's what research from Investors in People has revealed as a whopping 76% of IT staffers will be in search of a new job this year. It's not clear if this is simple "the grass is always greener" outlook on their jobs, but these findings fly in the face of industry predictions suggesting people would want to remain in their current roles due to economic uncertainties. According to the annual Job Exodus Trends report, 42% of IT staff are already looking for a new job just one week into 2017. “We were expecting to see British workers planning to stay put in the face of economic uncertainty," Paul Devoy, head of Investors in People said. "But we’ve seen exactly the opposite: a significant rise in people seeking to move employers in 2017 and a jump in jobs confidence.

Iran is looking to Syria peace talks next week as a chance to build on its regional clout, experts say, as Tehran, Moscow and Ankara all stake out claims for influence. The Syrian army's victory in recapturing the rebel stronghold of east Aleppo last month has thrust Tehran to the centre of the diplomatic game playing out over the country's future. The win was achieved with crucial assistance from Iranian military advisors and thousands of "volunteer" fighters. President Hassan Rouhani said this week that the co-sponsors of the peace talks opening in Astana on Monday -- Iran, Russia and Turkey -- were the only powers with the influence to turn the fragile ceasefire between the Syrian government and rebels into a lasting settlement. But resolving the different interests and plans of the co-sponsors will prove tricky. For Iran, the priority is to ensure the survival of longtime ally President Bashar al-Assad, or at least a carefully managed transition that stops Syria falling into the hands of extremists or a government that sides with its rivals in Saudi Arabia and the United States.

$2.99/2.49/AU$4.99 One of the Apple Watch's most impressive features is the remote camera option, which enables you to use the Watch's display as a viewfinder and shutter button for your iPhone. It's as useful for looking in awkward places as it is for snapping selfies, but that usefulness only applies if you stick with the default Camera app - or if you use a Camera replacement such as ProCamera , which has its own remote shutter app for the Apple Watch. The ProCamera Watch app offers more options than the standard Apple one, with easy selection of photo, lowlight mode, HDR or video and the option to set a timer too. But the real draw here is the main iPhone app, which offers a range of image formats, RAW and UHD shooting, filters and effects and easy social media sharing. Some of its best features require in-app purchases - Lowlight Plus and vividHDR are $2.

You also invent the lighthouse, flotsam, navies, pirates and so on. Looking at how human beings tend to operate, I’d expect to see drone-spotters and drone-jackers, with drone security and insurance being another issue rippling off from the latter.” If air space becomes drone space, and if the complexity of that space necessitates control by some monolithic gatekeeper, there will be questions about who operates the channels of that airborne economy. Will we end up with a situation where flying Amazon warehouses ( which the company has patented ) become lucrative targets for drone pirates? Will crime-fighting drone squads or land-based signal jammers be needed to fend off rogue drones? Or are such disruptions to drone territory totally warranted when we wake up to find that the air above our heads has been privatised without our consent? Reshaping the ground While a drone infrastructure would have major repercussions for our skies, it also stands to significantly change the shape of cities on the ground.
