Wel­come to a spe­cial is­sue of Guardian Week­end

The Guardian - Weekend - - Starters Contents -

This mag­a­zine is de­voted to tech­nol­ogy and its im­pact on our lives. Ev­ery day brings a new headline about the ways in which the in­ter­net is bad for us, so we wanted to ask: how is it good? And since it’s not go­ing away, can we build bet­ter, health­ier re­la­tion­ships with tech­nol­ogy?

We talk to Google’s new CEO Sun­dar Pichai, in a rare in­ter­view in Sil­i­con Val­ley.y. We meet the de­sign­ers be­hind the web’s most ad­dic­tive fea­tures – the Face­book like, the news alert – and hear how many are cam­paign­ing for a more eth­i­cal in­ter­net (or one that’s less of a time suck). We round up the most use­ful apps, talk to peo­ple who found their tribe on­line – and meet the ther­a­pists ex­per­i­ment­ing with vir­tual re­al­ity. To­day also sees the launch of the Guardian’s own vir­tual re­al­ity (VR) app, al­low­ing you to watch some of our w world-class jour­nal­ism in a new and im­mer­sive way.wa To cel­e­brate, we are giv­ing away 87,000 card­board­cardb VR head­sets with se­lected copies of to­day’s p pa­per, or you can or­der one at the the­guardian.com/vr.

We hope you en­joy.
