So bad they’re good: iPhone 8 survey results

Is this glass half full or half empty? Is it even a glass? What is water? What if it was fire instead?

The progression of these questions may seem odd, but that’s just how you start thinking about Apple survey results if you write for CNBC.

Todd Haselton gives us the bad news where by “news” we mean “a wild guess” and by “bad” we mean “good”.

“Nobody wants to buy a $1,000 iPhone, Barclays says.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Kendall Lister and Philip Speicher.)

Evergrow for iPhone proves matching-based puzzle games are actually super exciting

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

When I first downloaded Evergrow, I thought I knew exactly what the game was going to be: A minimalist puzzle game that hinged on one or two clever mechanics, possibly with a decent soundtrack.

But I was wrong.

This isn't your typical casual puzzle game—not at all. It might start out that way, but it quickly becomes an exciting, action-based puzzler that will have you frantically multitasking as you fling blocks haphazardly around the screen.

Netgear Arlo Go review: This security camera lets you roam free

This indoor/outdoor security camera runs on batteries and a cellular connection, It doesn't need to be in range of your Wi-Fi network.

The pros and cons of a cellular Apple Watch

As summer wends on, so too do the rumors of upcoming Apple products. This time it’s the Apple Watch that has gotten the spotlight, with word that the next version of the wearable might include cellular connectivity.

That’s been held up as a missing piece of functionality by those competitors that do include LTE support in their own smartwatches, but it’s hardly been an unequivocal demand amongst current owners of the Apple Watch. Is this a natural evolution for the product, or a case of trying to find some additional features to drive sales?

The case for cellular

The benefits of cellular connectivity on an Apple Watch are pretty clear-cut. Rather than having to carry both your Watch and your iPhone around with you, you could leave the house with simply your Apple Watch. There’s already some functionality that works without your phone being present—Apple Pay, for example, or fitness tracking—but this expands that roster even further.
