Apple bolsters News app initiative by hiring New York magazine's Laura Kern as 'Editor in Chief'

Apple is apparently setting out to do for news what it has done for radio in Beats 1. The company reportedly hired New York magazine editor Laura Kern to serve as Editor-in-Chief for Apple News. Kern has worked at the popular magazine as well as for the New York Times, and while there's no official announcement from either party or any detailed job description, Kern could be called in to add a critical eye to the curation of the news and editorial direction of the News app.

In the wake of 'Fake News,' proliferating social media, most notoriously on Facebook, many technology companies are taking a more proactive approach to the news and features that run through their services. The Apple News app is pre installed on iPhone and iPads, it is an aggregator of news and features but an editorial team led by an editor of Kern's calibre could ensure snafus and fake news items are minimized and thus creating a better reputation for Apple News as a go-to source of trustworthy information.

Spidey gets techie in new ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ trailers

With Spider-Man back in the Marvel fold, we’re getting to see how Peter Parker’s Spidey ties into the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe story. And the two new trailers show us how they’re connected and what’s different with Spider-Man this time around.

As you can see in the trailer above, Spider-Man: Homecoming has to be the most tech-inclined Spider-Man movie to date. Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man takes Peter under his wing and gives him some cool tech in the process. The tech comes with strings attached, or in his case, some form of parental control. And it seems Peter is having trouble with being the “friendly, neighbourhood Spider-Man.”

Samsung smartwatch patent shows a camera at the center of display, touchscreen panel on watchband

It’s always good to remember that patents don’t always equate to commercial products. But they do show us what a brand is working towards and Samsung seems to have some novel ideas for its upcoming smartwatches. Filed back in November and only published last month, a Samsung patent filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office shows a smartwatch with a camera at the center of its display. The camera looks like it’s built directly into the display and would come with an optical zoom.

And since there would be limited touch interactivity on the watch face, Samsung is also planning to make use of the watchband as a display. The functions seem to be similar to how they use the edge panel on its current crop of smartphones. You get shortcuts to other features, including being able to launch the camera. While we’re not sure how far off Samsung is when it comes to working with foldable displays, we can’t help but be excited about the possibilities. What do you think? Would you want to see these technologies in your next smartwatch?

The Belkin Wemo Bridge will bring compatibility to Apple’s HomeKit this fall

The latest announcement from Belkin will make its lineup of smart home accessories compatible with Apple’s HomeKit platform. Wemo is making it possible with its upcoming Wemo Bridge accessory. The product will connect to your router via an Ethernet cable and will retroactively bring support for all existing Wemo gadgets. You won’t have to buy any other product outside of the Bridge to get your Wemo smart plugs and light switches to work with HomeKit. It’ll let you do things like talk to Siri to turn on Wemo or dim lights, among other things. Belkin hasn’t announced pricing yet but the Wemo Bridge is expected to be launched this fall.
