The most exciting gadget I've ever reviewed. This tech is going to change things.
We just spent a week as the first publication to use Healbe's automatic calorie counting GoBe Body Manager bracelet. Our in-depth report on how it all worked out.

Great in-depth look at the Evolve team.
How the makers of Evolve survived publisher bankruptcy and their one creative ambitions to make one hit after another.

I am loving the new TuneIn. Here's my full hands on with it and interview with its creators.
The TuneIn app has reinvented itself as a social network for radio listeners, in an effort to compete with streaming music apps such as Spotify. The latest version makes finding new content easier, and adds the option to share your finds with friends.

I've always dug TunIn (BBC 6, baby) but glad to hear the new color on the icon means so much more.

Great article by Christian. DT Exclusive: We spent some time with the wristband that claims to be able to actively monitor your calories.

Hi Jeffrey, how do you think of AMC security, an all-in-one security app for Android
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.iobit.mobilecare
Personally, it should be included in one of “135 awesome Android apps (Updated with Editor’s Picks)” list

Microsoft has delivered, majorly, on Windows Phone 8.1. Really enjoying Cortana and notifications, among other things.

Is anyone else upset about this? I'm a Moves user and not happy about it.
After originally taking a stance against commingling data with Facebook, Moves updated its privacy policy to now reflect its sharing of data with Facebook.

You're definitely not alone (Check the Google Play Store reviews!) but having never used it yet understanding what it already tracked before the Facebook acquisition, I'm given to wonder just what permissions its users were already allowing?

Here's some eye opening information about the unique finger print of accelerometers in all such equipped phones! This is even more important than Facebook ownership of "Move" as any app that can access it can & has always been able to follow you and more!

DT Mobile Exclusive. The LG G3's interface is looking really cool. Very excited. Going to have a 1440p screen too, it looks like.

Well, this took forever to put together. If your phone or tablet is on this list, you could still be vulnerable to the Heartbleed Bug, and any future hack attacks that result from it.
We've compiled a bunch of lists to figure out which phones and tablets are vulnerable to Heartbleed across all wireless carriers. We've got 80 devices and advice if you're vulnerable.

What about if my phone is running on 2.3.4 (Gingerbread)??    :-)

This Heartbleed OpenSSL bug stuff is driving me nuts. It just keeps getting worse. We might as well just give up!
Heartbleed affects pretty much everyone, any of your data could have been taken, and none of us were at fault. So why do we entrust our entire lives to this thing called 'the Internet' again?

Hes a bit end-is-nigh-ish. Install a new cert, maybe fall back to 0.9 OpenSSL, that's still maintained, until they patch it officially... I mean, its not the end. The 66% attack surface was also doomsday, while it was actually about 20% actually affected. 20% is a ton, but move to the woods is a bit hyperbolic. If still unsure, there are alternatives like GNUTLS.
