GTA 6 Trailer In December

One of the most highly anticipated games of a generation is getting closer to being released.

Rockstar Games has confirmed that the trailer for GTA 6 will be revealed in December - although there's still no release date for the game itself.

It has been 10 years since Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto 5.

E-Scooter Law Delay

A delay to new laws on e-scooters has been criticised by firms and campaigners who accuse the government of missing an opportunity to tighten up safety rules.

E-scooters are widely sold and seen, but are currently only legal on private land or from trial hire schemes.

There was no mention of new laws in the King's Speech meaning legislation would be delayed.

The government has instead promised to extend existing trials till May 2026.

Inaccessible Payment Devices For The Blind

Blind customers are being left "frustrated" and "embarrassed" by inaccessible payment devices.

Some shops have buttonless touchscreen card readers, meaning you need sight to tap in your PIN.

They are increasingly popular because they are cheap and the screen can be used to advertise items at checkout.

Technical solutions exist for many machines and businesses could find themselves in court if they do not have them enabled.

🛡️ Security Corner 🛡️

Black Friday bargain hunters warned of enhanced online scams after millions lost last year.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – which is a part of the UK’s intelligence agency GCHQ – is warning that cyber criminals are likely to use AI technology

to produce more convincing scam emails, fake adverts, and bogus websites.

The NCSC is urging shoppers to look out for:

  1. Urgency: Are you told you only have a limited time to respond? Criminals often threaten negative consequences or costs.
  2. Scarcity: Is the message offering something in short supply? Fear of missing out on a good deal can make you respond quickly.
  3. Current events, such as Black Friday: Criminals will often exploit current news stories or specific times of year to make their scam seem more relevant.
