How to read email on your Apple Watch

You can't send email from your Apple Watch, but you can read any email sent to you.

While you can use your Apple Watch to dictate text message replies, the inability to edit text makes the same system ill-suited for longer and potentially more complex emails. So, there's no Siri for Mail, but there is a read-only version of the Mail app on your Apple Watch. You can see what's been sent your way, and can even mark mail as unread, flag it, and delete it.

How to send your location with Apple Watch

Meeting your friends somewhere and can't dictate the address perfectly? You can use your Apple Watch's "Send Location" feature to give them easy directions to your whereabouts.

The Apple Watch is a hot cup of convenience

The Apple Watch is a hot cup of convenience

As I pull the car into the Starbucks drive-thru, my husband says, "Oh, sorry, I thought you said you wanted coffee."

"Close enough," I tell him, and order a grande coffee with cream. He orders a breakfast sandwich. It's a Saturday morning and our family is headed to the beach for the day, about an hour and a half west of Portland.

That's right: we live in Portland, Oregon, hipster capital of the Pacific Northwest, where you can find some of the best coffee in the country. And yet, sometimes, we go to Starbucks.

How to stop Facebook from constantly tracking and recording your location

Use Nearby Friends? If you don't want Facebook for iPhone tracking your every move, you're going to want to change your settings.

I like using Facebook to share what I want, when I want, and it's fair game. But many of us don't fancy a social network tracking our every move, even privately. If you use Facebook's Nearby Friends feature, however, you may be at risk of just that. If you'd prefer not to have a personal map of every place you've been accessible via your Facebook account, here's how to change your settings and put the social network back in its place.
