The HTC One goes Mini while Brits go big

We love the HTC One so much we gave it five stars, but if you found it too big or too pricey, the good news it that the HTC One Mini will be available from next month. Let's ask phone guru Gareth Beavis some questions. Is it better than a Galaxy S4 Mini? It is! Does it feel as premium as its big sister? It does! Has HTC taken some things out? It has! The battery's more modest too. Still, the Mini has "all the bits it needs to be a winner."

The word Mini doesn't just make us think of phones. It makes us think of the miniskirt and the Mini car, and they make us think about Britain, and that makes us think about BATMAN! Yes, Batman! It's Brit Week on TechRadar and we've been celebrating the best of British tech - including the Tumbler, the Dark Knight's version of the Batmobile. It was "designed, built and mostly used in Britain." The whole story's fascinating, and the photos are great too.

We couldn't have a Brit Week without mentioning the quietly world-dominating Raspberry Pi. But the Pi is swimming against a tide of cynicism: as Patrick Goss says, we hear too many stories of negative attitudes to success in Britain. That needs to change: "If we start giving the 'swots' the credit they deserve, there is nothing to stop Britain joining the top table in technology and gaming."

Talking points
Has Ubuntu lost it?
When Ubuntu burst onto the scene nearly a decade ago, it defined itself with its choice of name. The word "ubuntu" means "we are who we are because of other people". It sounds idealistic, even utopian, and it was. But there have been complaints that some contributors are more equal than others. Read more
Yahoo scores order to declassify docs it claims show Prism resistance
As the fallout from the revelations of Prism continues, Yahoo is gaining ground in its efforts to prove it resisted government efforts to access its users' data.  According to The Daily Dot, the internet firm won a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court order today that will require the U.S. Department of Justice to reveal classified court documents from 2008.

The Google Nexus 10 is clearly a brilliant tablet. It has high-end specs at a mid-range price, and that alone makes it deserving of attention. Add to that a generally stunning screen and near faultless performance, and it really does start to look like an iPad beater.

Panasonic has undoubtedly created a very likeable and capable camera in the LF1. If you're looking for a compact camera to use as an everyday backup to your main, heavier camera, then it's a great option with very good image quality and some fun features, such as digital filters and panoramic mode.

Is Surface RT Microsoft's Zune all over again?
@ZeemFrostmaw Yeah, Surface RT was never going to work. Surface Pro is where it's at.
@Geo_Cyberwolf Surface RT would have worked had it been similarly priced to the Nexus 7.
@dangrabham We said Windows RT would be a balls-up 2 yrs ago. Now $900m written off Surface RT.

TechRadar deal of the week: Samsung 350V5C Core i7 laptop for £479.95

In this week's round-up of the best deals on the net, we've found a bargain priced Core i7 laptop from Samsung for £479.99. It packs a Core i7 3630QM CPU running at 2.4Ghz, 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a 1TB HDD. Our Associate Editor Dan Grabham says: "This Samsung laptop is a steal. With a Core i7 processor it can handle extreme tasks and is also great for games. Plus, as there's a cavernous 1TB hard drive, you'll never be without your media."
