Apple vs. Samsung has been the biggest smartphone slobber-knocker of the last half-decade. It has resulted in massive profits for both companies, and massive amounts of litigations between them. Apple believes Samsung, once a close manufacturing parter, and Google, once a close services parter, learned from the iPhone how to make a modern smartphone and then used that knowledge to clone the Android-powered Galaxy S series. Samsung and Google contend Apple hasn't a case to stand on. So how do we condense all those years, devices, and proceedings into one cohesive telling?
Find my iPhone, a technology that allows you to track down your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Mac to the last place it was connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network, has unsurprisingly lead to incidents of "hero complex" over the years. That's when an every day person, not affiliated with law-enforcement, decides to take crime intervention into their own hands, track down the perpetrator, and make them pay. And, tragically, sometimes that's the last thing they ever get to do.

But is it the imminent future? Would you want it to be?

Is there an App Store app you can't imagine doing without? Each and every single day there is hundreds of apps submitted to Apple for inclusion in the App Store. Some of them are great and some of them, not so much. The App Store is often times hard to navigate and finding great apps can be related to finding a needle in a haystack. But every now and then you find exactly what you're looking for and that app, whatever it may be, never leaves your device. It's an app you use every single day, love to use and can't imagine not having it available or how you ever managed to get on without it before. Do you have an app like that?

That can include your keys, your bag, even your iPhone or iPad. How does it work and, more importantly, how well does it work?

So, what's been rumored to date?
