Starbucks to Roll Out App Update in Effort to Fix Security Flaw

TheStreet (Jan. 17, 2014) — After security researcher Daniel Wood disclosed earlier in the week that the Starbucks app stores user names, email addresses, passwords and even geolocation information in unencrypted, clear text, Starbucks executives confirmed that app users' information could be visible to anyone with access to the phone if it was connected to a computer.

Google Details New Android Wear Smartwatches at Its I/O Conference

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Google detailed its smartwatch operating system Android Wear at its I/O annual developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. The company said users' smartwatches running on Android Wear will operate as an extension of their phones. Users will be able to download apps directly to their phones in order to get them on their watches. Notifications on a user's watch can be dismissed by swiping the screen, which will also cause the notification to disappear from the user's phone. Google said the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are available to order in the U.S. now. The Motorola Moto 360 will be available later this summer. Video provided by TheStreet
