It's only Monday but we've already been very busy with the 2017 Academy Awards and Mobile World Congress (MWC). If you've fallen behind on our coverage, be sure to check out the appropriate Storystream below:

The big MWC show will remain in the news all week as we get to test all the phones, tablets, chromebooks, laptops, and wearables on display in Barcelona. We'll also learn about the latest developments in 5G networking as companies like Nokia, Qualcomm, and Samsung vie for commercial dominance, and risk a repeat of CDMA vs. GSM incompatibility.

The other major news event this week will be the worldwide release of the $299 Nintendo Switch on Friday. Soon you’ll learn our final judgement on the new gaming console, including our verdict on the new 1-2-Switch mini-game collection, and the much-anticipated Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Beyond that we're also planning reviews of the Audi S3 and season 2 of Humans.
