NPD Group reported an increase of 160 percent of Android tablet sales during Christmas.
About a year ago, rumors began to surface that Apple was working on wearable computing technology in the form of a watch. No one has been able to nail down precisely what the so-called “iWatch” will be capable of, but some analysts claim it will be a companion device to let you access certain things on your iPhone or iPad without having to be near it.

Over the weekend, German news magazine Der Spiegel published leaked documents from Edward Snowden that showed the National Security Agency’s (NSA) Access Network Technology (ANT) division had access to specialized hardware that would allow them to spy on people through a variety of ways, one of them including a “backdoor” to Apple’s iPhone.
