Whoops! WhatsApp isn’t all encrypted

Wait just a second here - just yesterday WhatsApp announced they were completely encrypted, end-to-end, right? Apparently not. While messages and phone call content are, indeed, encrypted, some of the details surrounding these bits of communication are not.

TrackR app tracks your iPad, iPhone with Crowd GPS

Without the need of an internet connection, the TrackR Tablet app is able to track down your tablet and make it ring. Why would I want to do that, you might ask?

While I was watching the Apple Town Hall livestream, Phil Schiller kept calling the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro "The ultimate PC replacement."
