As Samsung unveils its new Galaxy S6, we ask what it takes to compete in the mobile market? The BBC's Rory Cellan Jones reports from the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona whewre he's been speaking to David Kang, Samsung's vice president of marketing, and to Stuart Miles, founder of gadget news site Pocket-lint, about how tough it's become to differentiate between the big brands and the threat posed by cheaper Chinese-made copies. Also, we hear from India about a project to replace teachers with computers in schools, and Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times describes how falling in love transformed a friend's productivity at work - is putting in less effort in the office, she asks, sometimes better for the end-product?
