iPhone users - Flaw - solution, until Apple fixes the flaw, the best defense available is to disable Control Center access on the lock screen.

Here is a helpful posting on the security flaw called #Heartbleed
Photo: REUTERS/Pawel Kopczynski By now, you may have heard about a major online security flaw called Heartbleed . In short, it’s a bug in a commonly used security system that potentially two-thirds of Internet sites use to keep your sensitive information (like your password) safe. A group of researchers discovered it Monday evening, and major websites have been scrambling to patch the error. What can you personally do about it?

Cell phone power cord - help is on the way.  A handy little addition...
The end of your laptop or phone charging cable can take a lot of stress when you bend it to plug it in to give your gear some juice. We've shown you how to reinforce it with Sugru, but if you want something more durable, attractive, and multipurpose, try some paracord instead.

iPhone users - I will admit I have done this thinking it would help!
It's long been prescribed that when your iPhone's battery is running poorly that you close out all the running apps to help preserve battery life (we've mentioned it before). That makes sense if you're using a computer, but as writer (and former Genius Bar technician) Scotty Loveless points out, that's simply not the case in iOS.

Wow. So surprising! I recently went in and deleted a bunch of apps I never use. then I stopped updating some that I use infrequently. Guess I could've left them alone!
