TechRadar's Hands On Review of the Apple Watch.

It's been two and a half months since Apple CEO Tim Cook's "one more thing" announcement was literally up his sleeve: a sapphire-coated smartwatch dubbed the Apple Watch, not the fabled iWatch.
This iPhone-compatible watch was unveiled alongside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, fulfilling the Cupertino company's "new product categories" promise for 2014.

It's not a circular smartwatch like its fashionable rival, Moto 360, but it still features a premium rectangular design with rounded-off corners and works seamlessly with iOS 8 devices.

What does Apple Watch do?

Apple's first wearable gadget beams messages, Facebook updates and simplified apps to our wrists, eliminating the all-too-common need to take out our devices to constantly check notifications.

Viral Facebook videos spread malware (again).

Viral videos on social media which make sensational claims such as ‘You won’t believe what she did next’, or ‘Shocking Video’, are a well-known method for spreading scams and viruses.

Currently, a malicious video claiming to be of British celebrity Emma Watson is circulating on Facebook. Attempting to launch the video can lead to malware installing on your system, potentially increasing the risk of you becoming the target for other scams seeking your personal information. Clicking the purported Emma Watson video launches a convincing YouTube look-a-like page, but instead of playing the video, an error message states that you need to upgrade Flash Player to watch the video.

“Our system detected that you are using an outdated Video Player version, in order to watch videos on YouTube please update to the latest secured version of Video Player by clicking [the] ‘Upgrade Now’ button below. Once you download and install the update, refresh the browser to watch the video.”

Clicking on the ‘Upgrade Now’ button installs malware on your computer.

Once installed, the malware automatically reposts the video to your Facebook timeline, which could potentially put your friends at risk.
