Have you had your bicycle stolen?
The Metropolitan Police Service would like to reunite owners with their bicycles and these photos are a selection of the most identifiable cycles that we have recovered.
If you believe one of these bicycles could be yours please contact the officer detailed in the photo.
Some of them are just frames. Even so, great idea. (Only 17 so far..) Are other cities trying the same thing?

Q: Has Android's rise in market share surprised you in the time that it's happened?
I don't think of Android as one thing. Most people do. I mean, from a consumer point of view, if you look at what Amazon does with Android, forget the name Android for a minute. If you're coming down from a different planet and you were going to name it, you wouldn't name it the same thing as what another company does. If you compared that to what Samsung does, I'm not sure you would name that the same thing either.
I think that the importance of that is overplayed. The truth is that there are more people using iOS 6 than there is any version of Android. And in days from now, iOS 7 will be the most popular mobile operating system. And so what does it really mean at the end of the day to show these share numbers and combine all of these disparate things as if they're one thing? I'm not so sure it has a great meaning to it at the end of the day.
So your question, does it surprise me? I don't look at it in the same way as you might. I think the way a consumer looks at this is different. Does a consumer that's buying a Kindle think about it being an Android? Probably not. And so I think that's a bit different than where

iPhone A7 chip benchmarks: forget the specs, it blows everything away >> Gizmodo
Intuitively, we know that the quality of a smartphone is just as reliant on its industrial design and the quality of the software it runs. But it goes deeper than that: the traditional "specs" distract us from what a gadget's guts actually do, and from a technological point of view, they distract us from the advancements that are actually making a product better.
Exactly. But if you want to understand the difference between marketing hype and useful improvements (is it having four cores? Higher GHz? More bits?) then this Gizmodo article provides an excellent explainer. The iPhone benchmarks will no doubt be surpassed in raw numbers in six months; but how about "performance per watt", which tells you the battery life you get too? None of the spec-watchers ever seems to measure that. But that's what people notice in real life.
