Developers were selected at random and offered a chance to buy a 42mm Apple Watch Sport with...

Those among the first to get the newly released Phantom 3 have found that they can't connect their iPhone or iPad to the drone with the existing DJI application. A support representative for the company took to the RCGroups.com forums on Tuesday to...
Apple made a small but important update to the official App Store Review Guidelines on Tuesday, banning developers from creating Apple Watch apps meant mostly to tell the time. The new rule, under the "User interface" section, states that "Watch Apps whose primary function is telling time will be rejected."
