Apple's automatic shotgun approach to patent filing means we get all sorts of weird and wonderful insights into the imaginations of the company's designers, who have come up with everything from "sick vapes" to phones made entirely from glass. The most recent patent appears to err on the more conventional side of design, proffering a contraption that combines a phone or tablet with a notebook "shell".

When a young boy identified only as Roman couldn't wake up his unconscious mother, he did what any astute, technologically-adept four-year-old would do: He used his mother's finger to unlock her phone, and then asked Siri to call emergency services. The boy's actions saved his mother, but the incident exposes some dark and dangerous flaws in our increasingly landline-less world.

You know how when you get a new pair of headphones, taking them out of the box is always a task? You always end up ripping the box to bits because the headphone cable is tangled throughout and hidden away behind plastic and cardboard.

But not Beats' new BeatsX wireless headphones. I cracked open the gorgeous box you see here, pulled a little tab, and saw the headphones presented in their full, tangle-free glory. That's when I thought yeah, that's what's up.

Ten years ago the first thing you needed to load on a brand new computer were anti-virus and malware applications. The internet was a mine field of malicious content that could infect your entire home network with one errant click. Yet things have changed dramatically. Windows has much more robust security options built in, browsers are smarter, and, hopefully, so are the users.

Apple's online store was down for maintenance this morning, leaving us all in wonder as to what mystery product would soon be available to purchase. Would it be a new iPad Pro? A souped-up MacBook? The mass-availability of AirPods? Not quite, but there is now a red iPhone 7 or 7 Plus!

Good news for anyone with an Android phone that isn't a Pixel: Google Assistant is rolling out to more phones, new and old. That means many more of us will be able to take advantage of Google's latest and smartest AI. There are some things both the Google Assistant and Siri are excellent at — like pulling up emails or showing photos you've taken in the last week in a specific city (Apple really seems to be catching up to Google in the image analysis department).

Over the next month, I'll be spending upwards of 90 hours in the air, and probably just as long sitting in airport lounges and standing in queues — I travel a fair bit for work. I always have a laptop and a couple of phones with me, but juggling them all is a pain. I find it much more relaxing to switch everything off and put it away, except for one phone I have filled to the brim with movies, books, music and podcasts.

Upgrading your computer can be a great way to save a little cash. It can also be a great way to fulfil that need most gadget geeks have for getting cool new stuff on a regular basis. But upgrading can also be shockingly expensive if you're not careful (steer clear of Apple's overpriced RAM), and it can seem especially daunting to upgrade if you're not familiar with the insides of your computer.
