October V3 Tablet App goes live with security focus and Apple iPhone 5S review

11 Oct 2013
V3 Security Special cover - the edition is available to download now

The October issue of the V3 Tablet App is now available to download for the iPad and iPhone free of charge.

The latest issue has a focus on security, with an in-depth feature looking at what the PRISM revelations of the summer mean for businesses and if data can ever be said to be truly safe after the claims that US and UK snoops have been accessing data for years.

With the fallout from the scandal still rumbling on, it is clear that the issue is not going to die away anytime soon. The head of the security services in the UK are arguing that such tactics are vital for protecting the country, so firms should assume that data spying may well continue for some time.

The issue also features a wide-ranging interview with the chief technology officer of Bet365, Martin Davies, who also took part in the V3 Hot Seat this week, to find out what it takes to keep one of the UK’s biggest betting websites running whatever the occasion.

The issue also contains our iPhone 5S review, as we find out if the latest flagship device from Apple justifies its price tag, or an upgrade, with a specific look at the new fingerprint Touch ID scanner to see if this is a gimmick or a worthwhile addition.
