Consumers continue to spend cautiously despite surge in confidence View the full-size infographic. Consumers can be persuaded to spend as confidence in the UK nears a seven-year high but the recession has taught people to better manage household budgets.

Google predicts future of ads in cars, fridges, watches – and thermostats Google says it foresees a future of advertising a few years from now in which they could appear on anything from thermostats to refrigerators to car dashboards and watches. The official remark that such devices could soon be serving "ads and other content" appears in a formal filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) made in December 2013 but only just released. But it drew a quick rebuttal from Tony Fadell, chief executive and founder of Nest, which makes internet-controlled thermostats and was acquired by Google in January for $3.2bn.
