We roller skate to the consumer electronics show in Las Vegas where wearable tech is the buzzword. The BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones tells us all about it. We hear about Indonesia's efforts to tighten airline safety as the search for more debris from the Air Asia flight continues. Professor Graham Braithwaite from Cranfield University tells us what is involved in air accident investigations. Millions of dollars worth of high end sports cars are abandoned in a cargo ship off the south coast of England after it was deliberately run aground. John Noble is a Marine salvage expert and tells us what he could see from the beach. Nick Davis meets some amateur genealogists in Jamaica and Lisa Pollack from the FT talks to us about social media airbrushing and what our Facebook profile probably doesn't tell us about ourselves.
