Using Tech to Your Advantage

How to make technology work for you rather than letting it take over your life.

Computer scientist Cal Newport tells us how to practise "Digital Minimalism" - making technology work for you and not the other way around. Plus we chat to Michael Acton Smith, whose meditation app Calm has just become a "unicorn" - a company with a billion dollar valuation. And we discuss Instagram's vow to pull graphic images of self-harm from its platform after the father of a British teenager, who took her own life, said the site had "helped kill" his daughter.
