HTC One M8, an Audi we R8 and Oculus Rift's Facebook F8

There's a new HTC One, and it might just be the best phone you can buy. Gareth Beavis says the HTC One M8 "takes the superb DNA of last year's device, improves it in nearly every area and then packs it full of all the latest technology... and still finds space to pack in a microSD card slot."

While we eye up a new handset, Facebook snapped up a whole company as it bought VR innovator Oculus Rift. As you might expect, many of the Oculus Rift's Kickstarter backers weren't happy. The sale and its backlash are a massive PR boost for Sony, whose own VR headset will go on sale this year. Our PlayStation columnist Phil Iwaniuk got his mum to try out VR, and came away even more impressed: "the really exciting thing about videogames is the possibility of exploring an imaginary place, and VR's killer feature is the chance to be present in it as never before."

Fancy using VR to drive really futuristic cars? We've got a better idea: why not drive really futuristic cars in the real world, on real roads? That's what Audi's offering in the form of the new TT, and Jeremy Laird has the low-down on the "all round techno-mastery" the coupe offers. Yours for an unspecified (but presumably very large) sum of money later this year.

Windows 8.1 Update 1: what's in Microsoft's latest Windows update

@BrecksBoss How can anyone not understand what 'retweet' means @twitter Stop messing with what isn't broken! People are not stupid!
@anucool360 That is the most stupid thing to do. And a way to lose one's identity too.
