Apple wants to make it impossible for anyone to snoop on your iPhone screen

iPhone Screen Privacy

It’s completely your prerogative to sext with a special someone while you’re sitting between two strangers on a plane. After all, it's your phone, and you can do whatever you want on it.

At the very least, beekeepers need to keep an extra-close eye on their hives — which can be difficult when there are a few thousand of them. A Canadian researcher is working on a monitoring system that listens to the buzz and passes on word if things are going south. Read More

Bloomberg: Apple adding LTE to next Apple Watch [Update: New form factor this year]

[Update: John Gruber adds that a new form factor is coming this year too:

This would mark the first external change since the Apple Watch debuted.]

Bloomberg reports that Apple is planning to release an updated Apple Watch model by the end of this year with built-in cellular connectivity. Bringing cellular connectivity to the Apple Watch has been rumored before but didn’t ship with the last revision which instead focused on GPS.
