The decision to integrate biometric detection into consumer electronics may be popular with users and shows the willingness of companies to embrace emerging technologies, but the fundamental reason for such integration boils down to one thing: an attempt to improve security. The data associated with biometric capture extends beyond a simple password or code created by the user. It actually forms part of who that person is as an individual and is quite possibly as personal as it can get, so when things go wrong, as one research company will point out at this week’s RSA, it raises a lot more eyebrows than a simple password breach. According to a new report, a number of Android devices are failing to protect the data of users that is captured through integrated biometric sensors.

A security analytics firm has identified a bug within a popular open-source networking library that potentially leaves up to 1,500 apps on the iOS App Store susceptible to malicious attacks. The report on the bug, which was identified last month, claims that apps using a particular version of the extremely popular AFNetworking library could be putting users at risk by exposing sensitive data – such as passwords, bank account information – and making it available to those with the expertise to exploit the vulnerability.

We have all suffered that anger inducing moment of inadvertently letting go of our smartphone and watching in horror as it crashes to the ground. The whole event usually lasts for a second or two, but feels like an eternity as we wait to see if the fall has caused the dreaded destruction of that beautiful multi-touch display. Imagine the exact same situation, but being forty stories up and watching as your beloved iPhone hurtles toward the ground below it. Oh, and it records the whole stressful event on its way down, too. That’s exactly what has happened to Catalin Marin in Dubai.

Carrying on from the recent announcement of its Xperia Z4 Tablet that was introduced as part of MWC 2015 last month, Sony has now taken the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone – Xperia Z4. Fans of the Xperia lineup of smartphones will be pleased to know that the latest Z4 hasn’t deviated hugely from its predecessor – Xperia Z3 – in terms of aesthetic design, but does come with improved technical specifications under-the-hood.

The Apple Watch has already managed to make quite a splash in the wearable market, and that’s before consumers even have it in on their wrists. With an estimated over two million pre-order sales, it’s almost certain that the first incarnation of the company’s “most personal product yet” will become an instant hit with technologists. As with most products that ship from the Cupertino giant, the Apple Watch is a masterclass hybrid of cutting edge design and engineering and now, thanks to the intricate work of Martin Hajek, we can now get an exploded look at the internals of the precise timepiece, thanks to a set of custom created 3D renders.

With the launch of the Apple Watch, the Cupertino giant is not only marketing its wearable as its most “personal product yet”, but is also playing on the fact that the gorgeous creation is an “incredibly precise timepiece”, and that it offers “entirely new ways to stay in touch” as well as introducing “a smarter way to look at fitness”. It’s highly likely that the marketing spiel will ultimately appeal to a lot of consumers and make the difference between whether they purchase the device or not, but what about the extended capabilities of the Apple Watch that can be unlocked through the use of third-party apps? We take a look at a couple that can be used to turn Apple’s new product into a powerful TV remote.

When Apple initially announced the Apple Watch, it didn’t really come as any great surprise. After all, it seems that a company like Apple simply cannot design and implement a new product range without some kind of leak making its way into the public domain. After the initial excitement surrounding the technical specifications and what the device would actually be natively capable of, the attention has now turned to what third-party developers will do with their software to get the most out of Apple’s “most personal product yet.” The Wdgts app, which has been readily available for Apple’s other iOS devices for quite some time, immediately seems like it could offer the perfect functionality for the small screen of the Apple Watch. Thankfully, its developers thought exactly the same and have released a 1.0.4 update to offer support for the Apple Watch.

The smartphone market is undoubtedly brimming with exceptional device manufacturers, which can only be seen as a good thing for the people that really matter – the end consumer. With that said, Apple and Samsung are clearly the two big players in the industry with the statistics showing that the makers of the iPhone and Galaxy S series – respectively – continually shift more units on a year-on-year basis than their rivals. So, Apple and Samsung are ahead of the competition with not much to separate the two, but if you asked a group of pre-teens to choose whether they’d prefer an Apple or Samsung smartphone, which way do you think they’d go? This video answers that age old question.

Today is the day when Apple’s “most personal product” became available for the public to pre-order. As usual, lucky consumers in Australia get ahead of the curve thanks to their privileged timezone, and it appears they didn’t disappoint Apple, with reports suggesting that they flocked in droves to various retail outlets around the country to benefit from the world’s first hands-on experience with the Cupertino company’s new product line. The Apple Watch itself was available for pre-order online, and could be touched and tried on in-store with what Apple is calling ‘try-on appointment’, but couldn’t be taken away as this informative personal video that was originally streamed via the Periscope app shows.

Original Auxo, the powerful and intricate multitasking tweak that launched over two years ago, practically reinvented background app switching and formed the foundational DNA for today’s native multitasking within iOS. While Auxo 2 and Auxo 3 for iOS 7 and iOS 8 respectively have been good in what they did, none of them ever came close to the awesomeness of the original version. Today’s release Auxo LE, where LE stands for Legacy Edition, brings back the old goodness from the original to iOS 8 devices.
