This is a device that will always be on your wrist, will accompany you to the shower if you forget to take it off, will go for a swim if you don't leave it in the locker, and will be subject to splashes and drips all the time. Fortunately, we...

As one might have anticipated, the Apple Watch elicited its fair share of groans and critiques from traditional watchmakers who were quick to question the device's utility and design aesthetic.

Hey, Siri, please stop listening

iOS 8 makes Siri smarter and more accurate, but one feature of the newly improved virtual assistant has become a bit more annoying that it probably should be. The "Hey, Siri" command, which lets you activate her without touching your phone, as long as it's plugged into a power source, seems to have a habit of randomly activating at...

While many people may love the "recent contacts" feature in the iOS 8 app switching jump screen, I personally don't. Showing a bunch of names and faces each time I want to move from app-to-app isn't my cup of tea as I find it visually distracting. Fortunately, there is a way to disable this new feature if you're so inclined. Hop into...
