Megaupload has been at eye of a file-sharing storm, after US law enforcement shuttered the site and had its owners arrested. The latest twists and turns have revealed that police may have used the wrong warrants when seizing properties. Whatever one thinks of the controversial founder, Kim Dotcom, he looks likely to be making the headlines for months to come.
Meanwhile, interest in mobile gadgets remains at fever pitch. Whether it is overheating iPads or details of the lastest update for Samsung's Galaxy range, mobile stories continue to attract the eyeballs of V3's discerning readers. They also flocked to pore over the details of our in-depth review of the new iPad.

The news wasn't all good for Microsoft, however. For the first time ever, the number of people using Chrome to browse the web surpassed those using Microsoft's Internet Explorer. It may have been a short-lived phenomenon - lasting a measly day - but readers were keen to get the lowdown on this landmark event.
