Now that iOS in the Car has been renamed CarPlay and will be shown off at the Geneva Motor Show, I thought it would be fun to start a discussion on what this all means to Apple, its competitors, and car drivers going forward.
Fitness trackers are all the rage for people who want to get in shape, drop some weight, and stay healthy. Slap one on your wrist, download an app to your iPhone, and start tracking your progress. Simple as that. Unfortunately the process of selecting a fitness band isn't as easy. They aren't cheap and they aren't all created equal. That's why I've taken an in-depth look at the most popular offerings from Fitbit, Jawbone, Nike, and Garmin to help you decide exactly which one is right for you.

Apple on Monday announced CarPlay, its rebadged "iOS in the Car," which it originally announced last year. It's been two years since we started hearing about iPhone integration in cars. I have to admit that I'm starting to wonder if it'll ever happen, and I don't think it's going to be a huge factor for me when it comes time to buy my next car. How about you?
Every day dozens and dozens of new and updated apps and games hit the iOS and Mac App Stores. It's impossible to keep up with them all, but it's not impossible to pick out the very best. Today we've got updates to the popular Mac email client Airmail, task app Any.DO for iOS, and more. Let's take a look!
