The Mobile World Congress trade show has come and gone with a flurry of announcements and for V3 readers the highlight was clearly Samsung’s Galaxy S5 unveiling.
Our hands-on review of the device was the most popular article last week, as we weighed up the Galaxy S5 against key rivals such as the iPhone 5S and Samsung's previous Galaxy S4 effort.
Other devices from the show that graced the top 10 include HP’s Pavilion x360 tablet-laptop hybrid and Sony’s new Xperia Z2 smartphone and tablet.
Apart from device stories, there was shock and outrage with revelations that GCHQ had spied on millions of web users via their webcams, taking and storing thousands of images, in one of the darkest twists in the spying scandal to date.
Finally, another trade show last week Cloud Expo Europe provided some fascinating insights into how major organisations such as Virgin Atlantic and HSBC are using the cloud, and the issues that remain around security and legal compliance.
