Back this Kickstarter: Crystal Quest Classic
A bona fide Mac game classic is back from the dead, but it needs your help to get over the finish line.
Crystal Quest is beloved by a whole generation of Mac users who came up during the 1980s. It was the first color Mac game, an early entrant into the Macworld Game Hall of Fame and most recently resurrected for Xbox 360 in 2006. There's a new attempt to update Crystal Quest for new Macs, PCs and Linux boxes, but it needs crowdfunding to be successful, and time is running short.

After testing numerous selfie sticks with both my iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, these are the ones I'll recommend without hesitation to any iPhone owner.

iPhone vs. Android and hardware encryption
iPhones have supported hardware encryption for over 5 years. Android phones... well, it's complicated.
When Google announced Android Lollipop, one of the most important features for customers in the post-Edward Snowden era was hardware encryption enabled by default. Put simply, on first-boot your personal data would be kept far safer on your personal device. Unfortunately, it looks like default hardware encryption in Lollipop is a nice-to-have, not a must-have, and many Android phone vendors have simply decided to keep it off.
