We've been talking a lot about smartwatches lately - so much so, that I wouldn't blame you if you forgot that other wearables could actually exist.

Even as a rabid Android fan, there's one aspect of Apple's iOS that attracts me: The aesthetics. This is especially true since the release of iOS 7; yes, that particular release became the butt of many jokes thanks to its heavy use of gradients, but as a bit of a color freak, it appealed to me. For those Android users... Read more...

We talked last week about the latest security issue to plague Google's ultra-popular Android OS, which at the time topped-off what seems like a never-ending list of issues researchers raise about the OS.

Google's Android OS has received its fair share of flack over the past couple of years for its security issues, but sometimes, it's not the company or its OS at fault: It's the third-party developers.

A lot of people have never been able to understand the logic behind Microsoft's Windows RT, with many urging the company to kill it off so that it can focus on more important products, like the mainline Windows.
