A busy week in the technology world saw all kinds of stories, ranging from broadband outages and security flaws to broadcasting firsts and Internet of Things projects.
The biggest story of the week for V3 readers was the BT broadband outage on Tuesday that left millions without services for some time, underlining just how important digital connectivity is to modern businesses.
Meanwhile eBay courted controversy by refusing to fix a flaw in its platform found by security firm Check Point, even though it exposes users to dodgy apps, phishing scams and malware threats.
On the reviews side we cast our critical eye over the Nexus 6P and found it hard to fault, giving it a coveted five-star award. We also produced a video review to provide some more insight on the phone.
