Asus' ZenWatch 3 Promises to Address the Most Annoying Thing About Smartwathes — Last year, Asus's ZenWatch 2 was a really great and eminently affordable Android Wear device.

Acer Made the Touchscreen Chromebook We've Been Waiting For — At the IFA show in Berlin, Acer is showing off its new Chromebook R13, which is the industry's first convertible Chromebook with a 13-inch display.

Mac BitTorrent Client Transmission Gets Infected With Malware Again — For the second time in five months, the Transmission BitTorrent client for Mac has been infected with malware.

Amazon Echo Will Be Able to Control Your Sonos Speakers Soon — A few months ago, Sonos said it was working on bringing voice control to its speakers.

What Apple’s $14.5 Billion Tax Bill Really Means — The EU's Executive Commission just ordered Apple €13 billion ($14.5 billion) plus interest for back taxes it owes Ireland.

Spotify Is Burying Artists That Give Exclusives to Apple: Report — According to a new report, Spotify really hates artist exclusives so much that it's penalizing acts that put their jams on Apple Music first. Bloomberg cites "people familiar with Spotify's strategy" as saying that if an artist releases an album exclusively on Apple Music-as Frank Ocean just did-they can expect that their tracks won't be featured on Spotify playlists once they do hit the service.

Apple Will Reportedly Kill the Home Button and That Makes Me Sad — According to a new report from Mark Gurman, Apple will kill the iPhone's physical home button in 2017. Don't get it twisted, this isn't the iPhone we're going to see in a few weeks; it's the iPhone after that. And killing the home button is a very sad idea.
