Corrections and clarifications
(Guardian (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) * An article about fake electronic products in China (An iPhone for $75? That really is too good to be true, 14 May, page 24) referred to "microprocessors - dedicated chips for functions such as voltage regulation, or signal processing, or any task you can perform digitally". They were, rather, integrated circuits or microchips, and the tasks they carry out are not wholly digital; some are analogue. A microprocessor is a particular type of integrated circuit: the main microchip in a computer that carries out program instructions.
1/8 A letter published in last Thursday's paper (Labour needs to find core issues, 15 May, page 35) suggested Adlai Stevenson had said that since England had lost an empire it had failed to find a role in the world. The author of the letter had confused Stevenson with another postwar US politician, Dean Acheson: in a 1962 speech, the latter said "Great Britain has lost an empire and has not yet found a role".
* A Comment article positing that the United States is "threatening to take the world to war" referred to an incident in Odessa involving a doctor. What we should have made clear is that the incident was taken from a post on a Facebook page that has subsequently been taken down (The US is dragging us towards war with Russia, 14 May, page 36).
