IF FOR THE PAST WEEK you've found yourself too lost in the crazy world of UK politics to get your fix of technology news, we've got you covered.
One of last week's biggest stories came courtesy of an optimistic man from Florida, who stumbled across some of his old doodles from 1992 (above) and claimed they prove that he invented the iPhone, iPod and iPad. He's so optimistic, in fact, that he's suing Apple for $10bn.
While it's unlikely he will receive a payout, a California woman was awarded $10,000 in damages from Microsoft last week for shoving Windows 10 onto her PC and subsequently borking it. Despite Microsoft's forceful upgrading tactics, it was revealed later in the week that Windows 10 still hasn't managed to hit 20 per cent market share.
We've rounded up the top 10 stories from last week below. µ
