US job worries and bad bankers

The US economy added just 88,000 jobs in March, the lowest increase for nine months. We ask what's continuing to hold back the world's largest economy.

Three bankers are censured by a British committee for their role in the collapse of a major bank, HBOS. But has enough action been taken against those who contributed to the financial crisis?

Also two huge publishers, Penguin and Random House, are given EU approval to merge - US author Michael Levin tells us he thinks they're irrelevant anyway.

And have the millions that tech giants Apple and Samsung are spending on fighting each other in court been a waste of money?
