Microsoft Office app reunified in major update: And why it’s my new default

Five years ago, Microsoft suggested we "try the new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps", as the lot replaced the "Office Mobile" app. This week, Microsoft decided they were better off pushing those apps back into a single app, now re-named "Office."

Apple Quick Look could let you buy furniture in the AR app directly

Although it has repeatedly and publicly professed its preference over virtual reality, Apple has yet to capitalize on augmented reality in a big and long-lasting way. Sure, its ARKit framework has useful applications, perhaps outnumbering Google's equivalent ARCore, but most have been just that, demonstrations.

Strava finally syncs with the Apple Health on the Apple Watch

One of the benefits of having a smartwatch these days is being able to track your activities, sometimes even without a paired smartphones in your pocket. Part of that is made possible because of how fitness-related apps sync between phone and wearable or even with the phone's default health app. Fitness app Strava, however, was an outlier in that regard until today.
