I’m getting two-day battery life from my iPhone 6 — Here’s how

If Santa brought you an iPhone for Christmas, you’re likely still in love with your new iDevice. Of all the knocks on any iPhone, battery life is among the most notable, with the small-ish battery of an iPhone tending to need a charge daily.

Jawbone UP MOVE – Body tracking for the mass market

Jawbone has clearly taken leave of its senses, if the new UP MOVE is anything to go by.

I caught up with Jawbone to find out what the big idea is, and why luxury cars might represent the best explanation for the UP MOVE.
