Reminder: Windows 10 free upgrade promotion ends today

Just a friendly reminder that today is the final day that folks with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. The free upgrade promotion - which has been running for nearly a year now - will come to a close at midnight, so if you've been procrastinating but planned to upgrade, now is definitely the time. Of course, many of you are probably well aware that the promotion has been going on for a year, given the rather annoying desktop pop-ups that urge you to upgrade. Those should (presumably) be ending too, so cheers all around.

Daredevil S3, Jessica Jones S2 won’t hit Netflix until 2018

Marvel's growing TV universe on Netflix seems to be well on its way to reaching the same success the Avengers movies have seen in theaters.

iPad Pro 9.7 revisited: making it work for work

When Apple first unveiled the already much leaked iPad Pro, the 12.9-inch one, it made a very bold declaration. This iPad, which had a specially designed keyboard cover and worked with a specially designed stylus, is the ultimate PC replacement. It was, perhaps, the most controversial thing about the iPad Pro. Of course, like Microsoft's similar claim about the Surface Pros, the reality wasn't as rosy. We've already seen it in action, when Chris Davies took in on a trip just three months ago. But now we take another look at the iPad Pro, the same 9.7-inch model, to answer an equally burning question: how can it replace a PC, especially for some serious work.

Bristol Bullet has the 4.8L V8 heart of a BMW

I am a sucker for British roadsters, I always have been. I blame the Triumph Spitfire for the affliction.

WhatsApp still isn’t as secure as you might think

WhatsApp still isn’t as secure as you might think

Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp in early 2014 raised all sorts of red flags for security and privacy interest groups. Facebook, then and to some extent now, isn't exactly the epitome of those two values. Over time, WhatsApp has tried to assuage fears by implementing features such as end-to-end encryption. Apparently, that may be futile after all. Forensic scientist Jonathan Zdziarski revealed that, while the app does encrypt the messages it stores, it doesn't actually completely delete them and its backups still leave users open to spying or law enforcement.

Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch to bring rotary bezel in September

While Samsung is eying a very early launch for its next Galaxy Note phablet, it doesn't seem in a rush to do the same for its next Gear smartwatch. Dubbed the Gear S3, because what else would you call it, the company's next high profile smartwatch isn't expected to debut to the public until September, during its usual IFA affair. And when it does, it will be sporting the same rotary bezel control that put Samsung's smartwatch back on the "interesting" map, enough to warrant a successor.
