Found this article relevant with the reveal of the new iPhones. It talks about how ridiculous the price tag is for Apple phones that is comparable to Samsung phones that cost hundreds less, and yet people keep buying them.

So many schools have iPads in classrooms now, Scratch Jr. would be a great way to introduce programming at a very young age.

This just might be the coolest thing ever. Huge development. Classroom use? Maybe not. But in space, anything goes.

“Apple sets the smartwatch free” Interesting, the new generation of smartwatches will be independent from iphones; they will be capable of sending calls, browsing the internet, etc without being connected to an iphone. Honestly the idea of having my phone constantly on my wrist never appealed to me, I thought that smartwatches already did this.

“How to Make a Mask that Expresses You” Just in case facial expressions are too mainstream for you, London’s Bartlett School of Architecture has designed a soft robotics 3D printed mask that enhances your facial expressions. I would personally be terrified trying to talk with someone who had this mask on but I think there is definite potential in the technology.
