If you’re a heavy Instagram user, then you probably already hate the fact that the photo-based social network doesn’t offer a desktop app. For Instagram, being mobile-only makes a modicum of sense because it’s all about taking photos and then sharing them with your friends online, which is something you’re less likely to do from a computer. That being said though, even just browsing and searching for images using the Instagram website can be a binding task, so an app would be most welcomed.

Ever since the movie Minority Report arrived, people have been waiting for computers to progress to the point where we can wave our arms around to control on-screen interfaces. Despite a few false dawns, we haven’t quite got to that point yet, and while the likes of Microsoft’s Kinect have proven that the technology is there, things haven’t quite taken off like some may have expected. Instead, touch-based interfaces like those on smartphones and tablets have become the norm.

As we go about our lives, we use all kinds of technology that relies on batteries, whether that be a smartphone, a tablet or perhaps a notebook computer. As we use these devices, we recharge them before using them again. This process can happen thousands of times during a device’s lifetime, especially if it’s something that we charge each day, like a smartphone or a smartwatch. That’s all well and good, but as anyone with an old notebook computer will tell you, batteries eventually start to see their overall capacity decrease as the battery itself begins to decay. That’s not good for battery life.

Apple has been rumored to have a team working on an autonomous car for quite a while now, and while the rumor hasn’t been around quite as long as the fabled Apple TV streaming service, it is one that simply won’t go away. There has been little in the way of solid proof that such a thing as an Apple-made car is in the works, though that hasn’t stopped the rumors from flying.

When Apple announced HomeKit, its iOS framework for controlling smart devices around the home, such as thermostats, door locks and lights, we expected to see every accessory maker under the sun rush to get accessories out the door. As it turned out, Apple’s own inability to get all of its API ducks in a row have hampered the release of hardware, but that is starting to come to an end. One of the devices first outed at January’s CES – the iHome iSP5 SmartPlug – is now available to buy.
