Withings Pulse O2 keeps tabs on your oxygen levels

Withings has announced a new health band called Pulse O2. It does all of the usual stuff, like monitor steps, heart rate, elevation, distance traveled, sleep habits, and estimates calories burned, but the really cool feature here is the ability to monitor the oxygen level in your blood. That information is estimated from the infrared heart rate monitor, then beamed to your phone through a companion app. The device itself can be mounted in a wrist strap, a clip, or carried around separately.

Intel sketches out the next generation of Thunderbolt: twice as fast, 33% thinner

The ThunderBolt connector has used the same plug-and-port design for years, but the next generation is reported to mix things up with a new design and even faster speeds. Intel has given the as-of-yet-unnamed standard (we'd place iCash on Thunderbolt 3) update the codename Alpine Ridge, and it's said to double the transmission rates of Thunderbolt 2 to up to 40Gbps. The new connector is also shorter in height, measuring in at around 3mm, compared to the 4.5 mm of the current Thunderbolt design.

On the eve of iPhone 6 carriers once again using the media to push back on 'subsidies'

On the eve of iPhone 6 carriers once again using the media to push back on 'subsidies'

On the eve of iPhone 6 carriers once again using the media to push back on 'subsidies'

Imagine a boss at a company with a really great salesperson who lands all the best, highest valued customers for the company. Now imagine that boss hates having to pay that salesperson their really high commission, even though it's the salesperson who's closing all those deals and ensuring all that money comes to the company. The boss can't afford to lose that salesperson but they're desperate to find anyway they can to cut that salesperson's commissions. Likewise, the salesperson knows their value and insists on being richly compensated for the deals they close. That's the relationship between the carriers and the iPhone, and between the price carriers pay Apple for the revenue the iPhone generates. It's also why the carriers hate Apple and the iPhone, and why when a new iPhone — like the iPhone 6 — is on the horizon, we get articles like this: "As Phone Subsidies Fade, Apple Could Be Hurt".
