How to add Glances to your Apple Watch
Glances are information cards that live just below your clock face. Like widgets, but with less interactivity.
Apple builds several Glances into the Apple Phone, including the incredibly useful settings glance (think Control Center), Now Playing for music and audio control, Battery, Activity, Maps, Stocks, Weather, and Calendar. App Store apps can also supply Glances, however, and adding them is easy!

The advent and evolution of Apple's digital hub
Like many people, the iPhone has replaced many consumer electronics in my home.
I no longer own a point-and-shoot camera, camcorder, voice recorder or dedicated music player. My iPhone is all of those items — plus more — in one, sleek, powerful and pocketable device.
In 2001, of course, the iPhone wasn't a thing yet, and many people had a whole shelf full of various dedicated devices. That year, Steve Jobs introduced the "Digital Hub" strategy, a cohesive plan to take all of those devices and make them more useful through the power of software.

Unicode rendering bug causing crashes, reboots on iOS 8
A bug in how iOS 8 renders Unicode is causing apps to crash or the lock screen to reboot when a specific string is received.
The bug occurs when your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch (which runs a variant of iOS 8) receives a message containing the specific string of Unicode characters. Because the specific string can't be rendered, the system crashes or, if you're on the lock screen, reboots.

Space Black Apple Watch (steel) unboxing
The Space Black Apple Watch is stainless steel with diamond-like coating (DLC).
The result is something with an almost other-worldly beauty. Like dragon scales or the Batmobile, the stuff of legends. The link bracelet enjoys the same kind of cleverness as the band itself — push a button and not only is it easy to swap, it's easy to re-size.
It might not be gold, but it's arguably one of the best looks, and Watches, in Apple's lineup.

EE lights up 4G LTE roaming in China
UK mobile operator EE has become the first British network to offer 4G LTE roaming coverage in mainland China.
The carrier's list of 4G roaming countries has not yet been updated to reflect the change, however we've been seeing solid LTE coverage through China Unicom on our EE SIMs in the Beijing area in recent days. Unicom operates FDD-LTE — the flavor of 4G used by most Western networks — on Band 3, which also happens to be EE's main LTE band at home. Its main rivals, China Mobile and China Telecom, only use TDD-LTE frequencies — these are incompatible with most European phones besides the iPhone 6. So naturally, the Unicom pair-up makes most sense for a Euro network like EE.
