Sony has had a rough few months, losing billions of dollars and failing to set the world alight with its announcements at Mobile World Congress. But one of its new phones, the Sony Xperia S, is clearly of interest to V3 readers, with our in-depth review the most read story of the past seven days.
Elsewhere, though, it was security that dominated the headlines, with numerous issues coming to the fore, from warnings by Symantec and McAfee of numerous new risks they had discovered, ranging from banking Trojans to tweeted malware.
Furthermore, news that the FBI is unable to unlock Android phones and Microsoft's warnings of a Remote Desktop flaw that was discovered in Windows were also of interest and concern.
Anonymous and Lulzsec also made headlines, as the two organisation continue to create havoc online, even as law enforcement groups continue to try and fight back against their members.
Elsewhere, there was good news for Londoners when Virgin Media was announced as the winner of a contract from Transport for London (TfL) to supply Wi-Fi access to 80 stations ahead of the London Olympics, with 120 to be online by the end of the year.
