Another busy week of tech news saw the V3 pages in high demand from readers interested in all kinds of issues and updates.
The most popular story was our review of the Note 3 from Samsung, as the South Korean firm is bringing out yet another version of the plus-sized device. We noted that the super-fast device is Samsung's lightest and thinnest Note so far, it's loaded with plenty of business features, is great for multitasking and can handle heavy workloads.
Elsewhere, Samsung’s arch rival Apple is facing criticisms from its user base over numerous issues in its iOS 7 update. We outlined this in our weekly top 10, which summed up the frustrations of many V3 readers who wished they had not upgraded their devices.
Meanwhile, Microsoft users are also facing headaches as the Windows XP support deadline hits the six-month barrier. And finally, in the world of security, web users were warned to look out for a fake Facebook page that offered an app download that contained the Infostealer malware.
