This week we're getting extra pumped up for Mobile World Congress as the big events start at the end of it - it's a 7 day count-down for some, but a 5 day count-down for your humble narrator! Before we get in to all that though, time marches on - with Destiny we've got a game that's set to take place in a post-apocalyptic future with the Xbox 720, PlayStation 4, and PC set to take on the brunt of this next-generation beast. You'll also want to see the very first-ever car backflip as made real by the Mini Countryman. Also remember that Russian meteorite? You can buy bits of it if you're feeling like money is burning a hole in your pocket - and you'd rather that fire come from space.

The PlayStation 4 has been tipped to bring on a new Sony price slash strategy for the PlayStation 3. Might be time to get on-board with the previous generation! There's an Obama Brain Activity Map project going on right now that you'll be surprised isn't actually mapping the brain of the President himself. The ISS astronaut Chris Hadfield has spoken this week about a variety of topics - fears, dangers, and advice included.

Network logs have tipped off a brand new Nokia Lumia 520 for the masses - without a doubt headed for Mobile World Congress 2013. A new interactive map of the world is showing Apple's supply chains in detail. That same Russian meteor has been shown to blast some rather strange damage across the landscape. A new Systemic computer has been revealed with the ability to rebuild corrupted data while never, ever crashing.

A rather odd Accel Telecom smartphone has been revealed with in-car connectivity galore - Voyager Connected Car Smartphone it's called, and you will... maybe want it? The LG Optimus G Pro will be coming to the USA in the second quarter of 2013 with a bit more of a traditional approach - giant displays and high power! Those of you on BlackBerry 7 or 7.1 will be sad to find that YouTube no longer works - the universe has left you behind!
