Apple prides itself on the security of its iOS mobile operating system, and aside from the occasional hiccup that besets all software at one point or another, this tends to be the case.

The MacBook range is iconic for a number of reasons, but the most differentiator between an Apple-made notebook and that of a rivaling brand is the famous, glowing logo on the rear of the case.

Concepts are a double-edged sword in that while they often dazzle, leaving us wishing that they were real, it’s often the case that these products are unrealistic, infeasible, or simply impossible to create in the real world. With the smartwatch market currently experiencing something of a boom, we’ve seen a fair few wondrous concepts in this department already, yet the new, innovative design you see before you is not only extremely creative in beaming notifications using its projector, but it’s also something that you can, quite literally, get your hands on.

There are plenty of different ways that an individual can embrace security to make the home, office – or any other location – a lot more secure. Each possible area of entry, such as doors, windows or garages, can be fortified to ensure that it’s extremely difficult for an intruder to breach.

For those of us who have an extra iPhone lying around, the Manything home security webcam app is an entirely free-of-charge solution that lets you use a spare iPhone as a video surveillance camera.

Apps are what make the world go round, of that there’s little doubt these days. A look at any of the app stores and their download figures should set aside any thought to the contrary. We love apps as much as anyone else, and we’d argue possibly a tad more, too. All apps are great, but we really love apps that go free for a limited time, which is why we feel it’s our civic duty to make sure that you, the dear reader, get to take advantage of such temporary price drops.
