1. Why does Siri suck at answering questions about sex? A very good question.

2. Why are NZX companies STILL so far behind the times when it comes to women in leadership? A2 Milk has appointed airline executive Jayne Hrdlicka to the role of managing director and chief executive - making her just the second woman at the helm of an NZX company.

3. How big of a deal is the US FCC repealing net neutrality? For the future of the internet around the world, enormous.

4. Could this young woman be the next Einstein? Harvard thinks so, and Stephen Hawking has frequently cited her work in academic papers. Oh, and theoretical physicist Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski, 24, is also the youngest person ever to build a plane herself that can actually fly – which she did when she was 14.

5. Will you be seeing The Last Jedi? The latest Star Wars movie is finally here - and women are front and centre as its stars.
