V3 readers are clearly keen to avoid the headache, hassle and heartbreak that accompanies the awful moment when you break your smartphone.
The news from Cat that its latest highly rugged smartphone is now available was well read and no doubt of particular interest to those who work in extreme environments and want something that can withstand harsh conditions.
Elsewhere, security reared its head after the FBI and UK's NCA coordinated a takedown of the dangerous Gameover Zeus malware programme, warning of just two weeks to get machines protected before it would be back up and running. The US also issued an arrest warrant for the man alleged to be behind the scam.
Away from security, Apple was busy showing off a huge array of new software features and functionailities that will be arriving on its iOS 8 and Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite update in the autumn.
For millions of users this will bring a new lease of life to their devices and clearly V3 readers are among those clamouring to find out exactly what this will entail.
