Enlarge (credit: Qualcomm) Last year around Mobile World Congress, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon X16 , billed as the company's first "gigabit" LTE modem. Most of you still don't have an X16 in your phones, though that will change in the next few months with the imminent arrival of the Snapdragon 835 processor and the flagship phones that use it. But Qualcomm has already moved on to the next thing, namely its new Snapdragon X20 modem—this chip bumps the maximum theoretical download speed from the X16's 1.0Gbps to 1.2Gbps, but more importantly it makes those gigabit speeds easier to actually hit. The X20 hits those (at this point, still mostly theoretical) gigabit speeds by using many of the same tricks as the X16. Carrier aggregation and 4×4 MIMO antennas allow up to 12 streams of data to be received using between three and five 20MHz chunks of spectrum, up from 10 streams across three or four 20MHz chunks of spectrum in the X16.

You might've billed Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire as cash-in remakes of two somewhat middling entries in the monster catching franchise. There's no shame in it. That's what we thought, too. But actually sitting down with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is like seeing a friend after a decade apart: you're both different people than you were 10 years ago, but just as fond of one another now as you were then. The 3DS versions of Ruby and Sapphire add a number of interesting even ground-breaking new features like Mega Evolutions from X and Y, and Pokémon Box that allows you to send monsters to yourself from one game in the franchise to the next. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you find yourself thrust into the role of a village's new mayor, which means it's up to you to help make the rules and aid in the burg's development.

My lords it is always a pleasure to follow Lord far less, and I agree with many of the words he has said. Two things, the Prime Minister and the First Minister of Scotland. Before the referendum, Theresa May was billed as a reluctant Remainer but a Remainer. Since the referendum she has become an enthusiastic Brexiteer leading a government frankly barely distinguishable from Ukip.

Facebook is about to start pushing its next Snapchat clone on a new set of 1 billion+ users. WhatsApp is now starting to roll out its own version of Stories with an update to its Status feature. Launching now in the Netherlands and France, the feature will eventually be live in all the countries where the messaging app is available. SEE ALSO: Change this security setting on WhatsApp right now The feature, which the company has been experimenting with for months, is officially billed as a long overdue update to WhatsApp Status (that's the feature that previously allowed you to set a quick "text only" status visible to your contacts within the app). But the feature is far closer to Snapchat (or Instagram) Stories than a status update. Read more... More about Snapchat , Whatsapp , Facebook , Apps And Software , and Tech

Donald Trump is also defending his comments regarding Sweden. Presidential visits to Brussels rarely stirred much interest in the past, but these are different times. Donald Trump has lauded Brexit and belittled the EU, the relationship has become awkward. The greetings, at times, seemed strained. But the White House has billed this as a reassurance tour and after his initial talks, that is exactly what Mike Pence offered.

The Joint Operations Command coordinating the fight against IS declared east Mosul "fully liberated" on Jan 24. But it took Iraq's most seasoned forces – the elite Counter-Terrorism Service – more than two months to clear the eastern side of Mosul. After a pause, federal forces now face what was always billed as the toughest nut to crack: Mosul's west bank, home to the narrow streets of the Old City. "West Mosul had the potential certainly of being more difficult, with house-to-house fighting on a larger and more bloody scale," said Patrick Skinner, from the Soufan Group intelligence consultancy. Narrow streets The streets around the historical centre, which includes the mosque in which Baghdadi made his only public appearance in June 2014, will be impassable for many military vehicles and force government fighters to take on IS in perilous dismounted warfare.

Finally, one of the outright weirdest things we came across at the show was a game called 'The Great American Punch' where you, you guessed it, have a boxing match with the leader of the free world - Donald Trump. The game was produced by a team of students at a recent game jam (so don't expect exceptionally high production values) and is billed simply as a 'cathartic experience' rather than an outright game. Aside from the current game-mode, the team hope to include more world leaders for you to spar with in future versions including Vladimir Putin and none other than the Queen of England herself, Queen Elizabeth II.

With its mix of boulder-strewn beaches, bustling markets and exotic fauna and flora — which even includes penguin coloniesCape Town offers up the perfect blend of city and country escape. The only problem? It's often wrongly billed as a place best enjoyed during the summer (our winter). Sure, destinations from Croatia to the Greek Islands will soon be heading into high season as (our) summer sets in, but while the masses migrate to Mediterranean beaches, destinations south of the equator are a traveler's best-kept secret. In Cape Town, winter weather is far from the snow-and-sleet variety, with temperatures here still hovering in the 60s and 70s, making it ideal for strolling around the waterfront or hiking one of the area's many mountain routes. Plus, fewer tourists means you'll not only snag better hotel deals, you'll also be able to take advantage of the city's natural beauty and landmarks sans crowds.
