The Raspberry Pi dominated the headlines last week after the launch of the third version of the hugely popular computer. The device has several new features, but retains the £25 price.
V3 got hold of a Raspberry Pi 3 to put it through its paces and was very impressed by the improvements, awarding it a coveted five stars.
Elsewhere, we spoke to Phil Pavitt, global CIO of Specsavers and formerly CIO of HMRC, about the problems of licence renegotiations. Oracle, in particular, was criticised for its 'gun-to-the-head' approach.
V3 also chatted to the head of digital at RBS to hear more about a new artificial intelligence system the bank has built to answer staff questions, freeing up human advisors to focus on more complex projects.
The tool could one day be used for customer interactions, although RBS said there is still work to be done to get to that stage.
