Every time Apple releases a new iOS, I find something to geek out on a little bit. One time I fawned over the DND function. This time I am surprising even myself and not marking the new and native camera timer as my #1 feature for iOS 8. Nope. That title belongs to the Medical ID functionality found within Apple's new Health App dashboard. If you run, walk, bike, travel, drive, sit on the couch all day playing Frozen Free Fall, or walk to your mailbox with your phone, this could help save your life in an accident. ...more

FINALLY we look like we know what we’re doing

Yes, I do realize that I’m probably far more excited about our new website coming on line that is normal.
