While Apple and Samsung may be battling it out for tablet supremacy, with Apple the clear leader, there was good news for embattled mobile firm Research in Motion (RIM) this week after our review of the PlayBook OS 2.0 review was the most popular story of the last seven days.
Clearly, there are plenty of people out there keen to see how the firm has attempted to improve the device and who may be tempted by the updates the firm has introduced.
Elsewhere the sale of HBGary and Wikileaks' publication of millions of "Shadow CIA emails" were both widely read, as security issues remain a key topic for V3 readers.
News from Mobile World Congress was of keen interest too, particularly Microsoft's boast that Windows 8 will boost Windows Phone sales.
The firm was left red-faced, though, after it was forced to admit an outage on its Azure platform, which knocked the government's G-Cloud service offline, was caused by the system being confused by February's extra day due to the leap year.
Lastly, the launch of the Raspberry Pi Linux device, which is designed to spur a new wave of innovation and interest in computing development and coding by giving schools the chance to purchase the device for just £22, was also popular.
