Apple's featured free app of the week is FunGolf GPS. It's like an electronic caddy. One of the cool features is being able to download 3D maps of local golf courses to help you see how to play each hole. Check it out! It usually sells for $19.99.
I will probably never own let alone ride in a Bentley but this video is kind of cool because of how it was made. It was shot with iPhone 5s' and edited on the iPad Airs that apparently come with new Bentleys. Check it out courtesy of AppleInsider.

As you may have heard Heartbleed is the name of a vulnerability that can lead to compromised passwords on websites. The only fix is to update your website passwords after the website fixes their server software. There are ways to check a website to see if it has been updated but I just found out that 1Password provides an easy way to check this in their latest software update. They added a feature to their Security Audit called Watchtower. You can read more about at the link below.
Today Apple announced updated MacBook Airs. Not only do they have faster processors but they start at $899. At that price you get an 11" MacBook Air with a 128 GB of storage. To put that in perspective, that's $100 more than an iPad Air and $100 less than a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 with the same storage capacity. What a deal!
