To take you into Memorial Day weekend, we're offering up the very best of the week on CNET, and it's jam packed with all sorts of awesome.
The Next Big Thing is back with an episode that looks at the future of virtual reality beyond gaming; the buzz around 5G and why it could be the biggest "G" upgrade we've ever seen; and how 2014 is shaping up to be the year of 4K content.
Microsoft finally unveiled the Surface Pro 3 earlier this week. We go hands-on with the new high-performance Windows 8.1 tablet, and determine whether it's ultimately more successful as a tablet or laptop replacement.

Donald Bell counts down the Top 5 things you hate most about Facebook in the latest episode.
