Dashlane comes to Apple Watch with one-touch password changes

Popular password management service Dashlane has just released an update for its iOS app that introduces Apple Watch compatibility. While looking up and reading passwords from your wrist is hardly ideal, it's Dashlane's flagship feature — one-touch password changer — that makes the Apple Watch app shine. That tool is how Dashlane differentiates itself from managers like 1Password and LastPass, automatically changing and updating passwords on websites with the touch of a single button.

StubHub for iOS now features Uber, Apple Music connectivity

StubHub for iOS now features Uber, Apple Music connectivity

StubHub, the popular service for buying and selling event tickets, has just updated its iOS app with an interesting pair of other apps/services for iPhone users: Uber and Apple Music. While on first thought these three apps seem like a random mismatch for integration, they actually play out well together and, dare I say, may be fairly useful. The Uber integration lets users request a ride in relation to the event they just bought tickets for, while Apple Music favorites can be added to StubHub, making it easier to know when tickets are available.

Google, Apple, Microsoft pledge to fight climate change

Major businesses, including several tech companies, have taken up the White House's pledge to help combat climate change. In a statement today, the Obama administration detailed the threat climate change poses to the world as a whole, pointing out that 19 of the 20 hottest recorded years have happened in the last two decades, and that we’re already collectively experiencing things like bigger storms, longer droughts, and more frequent wildfires. That’s why the White House has launched its Climate Action Plan to cut pollution, and many companies have signed the American Business Act on Climate pledge to do their part.

Why the Apple Watch is heading to Best Buy, not Target

Why the Apple Watch is heading to Best Buy, not Target

Why did Apple choose Best Buy to carry their Apple Watch when so many other stores would jump at the chance? This is the question many electronics stores - many of whom also carry Apple products - will be asking at board meetings this afternoon. Why, Apple, would you choose the one retailer for the Apple Watch, one that allows people to literally take working model smartphones and smartwatches off the rack to test them? Why indeed. The proof is in the pudding - stores like Target and Walmart are making a mockery of the point-of-sale mobile device business.

Apple reported to be eying BMW i3 for its own EV plans

Apple reported to be eying BMW i3 for its own EV plans

Apple making its own electric car is one of those news that refuses to die, much like a zombie. Although a surprising new venture for Cupertino, it falls in line with the tech world's recent obsession over the automotive industry, both in EVs and in self-driving cars. And there is strong evidence to support news of Apple's plans, as well as a steady flow of rumors, like this one that puts Apple chief exec Tim Cook in Germany to see if the BMW i3 electric car is a viable basis for its own.

Apple Watch coming soon to a Best Buy near you

Apple Watch coming soon to a Best Buy near you

Like any Apple product, or maybe even more so, the Apple Watch has had its share of believers and naysayers. Just this month, Apple's first wearable was put under much scrutiny due to what was perceived lack of general interest in the smartwatch. Although Apple refuted such claims, both with some actual numbers as well as strong statements, the fact remained that the limited availability of the Apple Watch probably hurt more than it helped. Well, not anymore, because starting next week, you can buy one at a Best Buy retail store.

Apple patents Google Cardboard in search of use for iPod

Apple patents Google Cardboard in search of use for iPod

Apple files for a patent that looks extremely similar to the basic concept for Google Cardboard. It would appear that Apple has prepared for the eventuality that virtual reality lust would hit the iPhone community. What we're looking at today is a couple of patent applications that essentially have Apple owning the idea of a face and ears-mounted display carrier, a headset, that can use an iPhone as its display. Sound familiar? It certainly should. This also isn't the first, second, or even third time such an invention has been seen (and produced) by a hardware company.

Apple boots Nest thermostat from store focusing on HomeKit devices

Apple boots Nest thermostat from store focusing on HomeKit devices

Apple has offered the Nest thermostat on its virtual store shelves and in some of its retail locations for three years now.

The ouster comes as a new spat of Apple HomeKit products have reached the store and it appears Apple prefers to focus on those items.

Consumer advocates call out Apple Music on antitrust concerns

While Apple has finally settled and moved past the antitrust cases surrounding its ebooks business practices, it like a similar situation is building up against the new Apple Music subscription service. The well-known consumer advocacy group Consumer Watchdog has published letters to both the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Department of Justice, asking them to look into Apple's attempts to "dominate the subscription music sector" in violation of antitrust laws.

Apple’s new 2015 Back to School offer: free Beats headphones with Mac purchase

While many have been left wondering what happened to Apple's annual Back to School promotion, last week retail chief Angela Ahrendts promised an update, and here it is: Those who qualify for the education pricing discount and buy an eligible Mac will get a free pair of the Beats Solo2 headphones.
