Pinterest Lens beta goes live for everyone in the US

Pinterest was created as a place to collect and search for interesting things, usually images and pictures, on the Internet. But not every interesting thing has to or can be found online.

WikiLeaks’ Vault7 CIA dump prompts Apple reaction and more

Apple, Microsoft, and others in the tech industry have responded to Wikileaks' claims of CIA hacking abilities, pushing back on fears of federal agents turning smartphones and TVs into spies.

MyKronoz watch hands “attached by a hole cut through the color display”

A smartwatch with a touchscreen display and a set of mechanical hands is exactly what we did not expect from MyKronoz. It didn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to continue to try to make smartwatches look like traditional watches in the first place, given the lack-of-market for the devices.
