They mostly come at night... mostly. The next "Alien" movie is going back to 1986 classic "Aliens" to tie up the story of extra-terrestrial ass-kicker Ellen Ripley, thanks to director Neill Blomkamp.
And speaking of horrifying futuristic nightmares, UK and US spies have been caught trying to dip their fingers into our SIM cards with an attack on SIM card manufacturer Gemalto. Meanwhile Lenovo has been caught trying to spy on your computer to shoehorn in more ads.
But to distract ourselves with shiny consumer baubles, we look ahead to Mobile World Congress, the annual industry bunfest where everybody who's anybody in the world of phones, tablets, wearables and what-have-you come together to show off their wares for the coming year. That includes Samsung, expected to launch the Galaxy S6 and HTC, set to debut the new One M9. We're also excited to get our hands on Google's intriguing modular Project Ara device and find out a bit more about 5G.
We've already seen Sony bump up the battery life with the Xperia E4g. Meanwhile, Kazam is marching on with the Trooper range and LG reveal the first 4G LTE smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane LTE -- which runs WebOS.
Oh, and there's a new Pebble smartwatch, although we question if it should be on Kickstarter.
Hit play on the video and enjoy!
