3 Features a Nike-Apple Wearable Absolutely Must Have — Nike and Apple have had a special relationship since 2006 when the companies announced a partnership that created a sports-oriented ecosystem around iPods and Nike running shoes. Since then iPods and iPhones have been tightly integrated with Nike+, the Portland-based sports giant's activity- and exercise-tracking social network.

<i>The Walking Dead</i> Watch: "Strangers" — Episode two of the fifth season of AMC's The Walking Dead is titled "Strangers," but it might as well have been called "Meditations" or "Aphorisms." The bulk of the episode is composed of multiple, one-on-one ruminations on the fundamental question (after basic survival) for our group: how to be in this world.

It’s Time to Seriously Start Expecting an Apple TV Again — Apple's Oct. 16 "It's been way too long" event was supposed to be all about updating products that hadn't been refreshed in a while. And it was. The Cupertino, Calif. company unveiled svelte new iPads, an ultra-high-resolution version of the iMac, an updated Mac mini, and a slew of software and service updates.

This Is Google's Massive New Nexus 6 Android Phone — Google unveiled its latest phone, the Nexus 6, Oct. 15. It's big. Very big. The first device to run Android 5.0, codenamed Lollipop, features a massive 6-inch display, larger than Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 and Apple's iPhone 6 Plus. The device packs a Snapdragon 805 processor, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, and two front-facing speakers.

In Silicon Valley, You Can Forget Aging Gracefully — Nature abhors the old, Emerson said. In 2014, we can add: so do technology investors. Because in the tech sector, where innovation and growth are worshipped and rewarded with obscene valuations, the esteemed companies that helped establish Silicon Valley and shape the Internet are not being allowed to age gracefully.

Season 5 Episode 1 — Anybody who was hoping the stalemate viewers were left with at the end of season four of AMC's The Walking Dead would be resolved by a civilized, diplomatic negotiation between mutually consenting parties is going to be disappointed by No Sanctuary, the first episode of season five.

Everything You Need to Know — The Walking Dead, AMC's zombie-packed horror epic, returns for a fifth season on Sunday, Oct. 12. Unlike season four, which began in muted, bucolic tones, this installment promises to debut with total discord.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Q&A — Andrew Lincoln, 41, is reprising his role as Rick Grimes, the leading man in AMC's The Walking Dead, the fifth season of which premieres on Oct. 12. The show, which sees bands of frazzled survivors trying to navigate a zombie-laden apocalypse, has grown progressively darker (and more popular) over the past few years.

33 Ways to Fix Being Utterly Bored at Work — You've taken on new projects. You've gone above and beyond. You've talked to your boss about additional responsibilities and gotten the old "definitely-once we have a position open / more budget / don't need you to focus on X anymore." Frankly, you're bored with your job.

Here's What Apple's New Phone Comes With — Apple is launching its two latest iPhones Friday, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
