1. How Box became a $2bn business without its founders' killing each other
Aaron Levie founded and leads Box, an enterprise storage firm, which remains one of the most hotly-anticipated technology public flotations of the year. Yet unlike many bosses of major Silicon Valley firms, he managed to appease investors, staff, customers, and new clients all without throwing his childhood friends — many of which came to work for him — under the bus. A tale of success from school to the stock market, Box may still be small but remains probably one of the best companies to work for, according to TechRepublic's inside track.

2. Android malware almost doubled in the fourth-quarter
Android malware has rocketed during the fourth-quarter of 2013, according to McAfee — which isn't surprising considering it's the most popular mobile platform in the world by a long shot, taking in about three-quarters of all market share. During 2013, the antivirus firm collected 2.47 million new mobile samples, with 744,000 alone during the three-month period at the end of the year. Unique samples grew by 197 percent from the end of 2012, the company said.

3. Upgrading to iOS 7.1 may actually speed up your iPhone 4
iOS 7 was arguably designed with the latest iPhones in mind, both of which are more powerful and capable than their predecessors. It wasn't therefore a surprise when iPhone 4 users who received the upgrade complained their smartphone would slow down and crash even more than before. But with the latest iterative version, iOS 7.1, Apple reckons it has fixed this, making older phones running the new software even faster than ever, making the opportunity for users to upgrade almost impossible to turn down.
