By pushing the G3's display past the 5in mark, LG has put its handset in direct competition with Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, which features a moderately bigger 5.7in display, and is the current ruler of the big-screen Android device space.

Raspberry Pi recently released a new model of its popular mini computer, and we’ve put the Model B+ through its paces, to see whether the extra USB ports and expanded I/O pins are worthwhile upgrades.
IT security managers were kept busy last week, as the US Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) issued a warning alerting businesses of a flaw in Huawei's popular E355 wireless broadband modem, which could be exploited by hackers to mount cross-site scripting attacks.
A dangerous open-platform communication (OPC) scanner was also discovered in a variant of the Havex malware, which could be used to launch cyber attacks against critical infrastructure.
Microsoft had its feathers ruffled last week, after the UK government decided not to include Office file formats in its newly launched open file format standards.
The new standards mean the government will stop using proprietary file formats that can only be viewed by specific applications, such as Microsoft Office, and instead use PDF/A or HTML file formats for documents that only need to be viewed, and the Open Document Format (ODF) for documents that will be shared or created and used collaboratively. Microsoft hit back that the move will confuse users and stifle innovation.
