Top 10 most read: Tablets head to head and Intel’s GraphBuilder launch

Apple iPad vs Microsoft Surface RT vs Google Nexus 10

With so many tablets hitting the market, and loved ones no doubt dropping none-too-subtle hints about what they want for Christmas, it's no surprise our three-way head to head of some of the top tablets on the market proved so popular.

Apple's iPad may be the favourite given it's the device that started the trend but the new offerings from Microsoft and Google show the firm won't have it all its own way, although for now we still favour Apple's offerings, but only just, with the rivals having plenty to recommend themselves.

Elsewhere the news of Intel's open source Graphbuilder tool for big data was of keen interest, underlining the importance this trend is playing in the enterprise.

Over in the security world it's all got rather strange with McAfee founder John McAfee on the run from the authorities in Belize, eventually escaping into Guatemala where he ended up being arrested. It's not surprising this tale is proving so engrossing as it continues to unfold.

Finally, there was good news for the UK after the government announced it was expanding its super connected cities programme to more cities in an effort to further boost the availability of superfast broadband.
