Apple continues to dominate the headlines as its iOS 7 operating system received its first update last week, with the 7.0.1 update for iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S devices arriving to fix a number of unspecified bugs. Clearly those with the brand new devices would have been keen to get it installed as quickly as possible.
Elsewhere Microsoft showed it’s not giving up on the hardware market just yet, despite its first tablet venture proving something of a flop. Its new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 devices boast a raft of improvements and our Top 10 rundown of these features proved popular with those wondering if Microsoft is worth a second look.
Meanwhile, the chance to chat with the CIO of Tesco while attending Oracle OpenWorld, led to some interesting insights into how the firm is ready to embrace the 3D printing revolution, as it sees itself as potentially becoming a hub for the emerging technology.
Finally, Facebook’s claims that data centres do not need air conditioning drew interest, and no doubt some sceptical looks, when it said a cold climate is more than enough to keep its army of servers nice and chilled.
