The cyber cold war between China and the US continues to escalate with warnings last week from the US Department of Defence (DoD) that China is developing dangerous cyber attack tools that could knock a nation's infrastructure offline.
Our report on the news was the most read of the week, and V3 readers were clearly concerned as the DoD warned that the US faces a serious threat from China in the cyber arena.
Elsewhere it was reported that Citrix has helped Irish airline Aer Lingus to swap the bulky flight manuals used by pilots for digital copies on Apple iPads to create a paperless cabin, in another example of tablets replacing paper documents.
Citrix also hit the headlines with its entry into the Internet of Things market with Project Octoblu, a combination of cloud-hosted software and hardware as part of a partnership with Amazon.
