Apple has removed apps from The New York Times from its app store in China, after "what it said was a request from the Chinese authorities," according to the Times itself.Apple took down both English and Chinese-language apps from China's iTunes store on December 23, the Times said.According to app analytics company Sensor Tower, China was the app's second largest market after the US.Apps from other publications like The Wall Street Journal and FT haven't been banned.It's worth noting that China began blocking the Times' websites in 2012, "after a series of articles on the wealth amassed by the family of Wen Jiabao, who was then prime minister," the Times said.We have been informed that the app is in violation of local regulations, Fred Sainz, an Apple spokesman, told The Times.As a result, the app must be taken down off the China App Store.When this situation changes, the App Store will once again offer the New York Times app for download in China."China didn't say why they wanted the NYT app pulled and Apple wouldn't say what law it was complying with," the Times' Katie Benner, who reported the story, wrote on Twitter.She also pointed to this piece, which the Times published the day before its apps were taken down though neither Apple nor China cited it as a reason, and Benner said it could be unrelated : The day before the NYT app was pulled from the App Store in China, the NYT pubbed this story.

Getting the recommended eight hours of sleep every night means you ll spend at least a third of your life in bed.So if you re going to splurge on a piece of furniture, it might as well be a bed that constantly adjusts its comfort to match your sleeping position and warms your feet so you can fall asleep faster at night.Sleep Number s adjustable beds have seemingly existed as long as infomercials have ruled late-night TV, but in recent years the company has bolstered the technology inside the beds so users can do more than just adjust their firmness.The latest Sleep Number bed to use the company s SleepIQ technology, which automatically monitors your sleep and makes recommendations to help improve your slumber, is the new Sleep Number 360, which introduces even more intelligent features.Previous versions of Sleep Number beds allowed users to silence a snoring partner with a spoken command.But the new Sleep Number 360 uses additional sensors to detect when someone is snoring in their sleep, automatically raising the upper portion of the mattress up to seven degrees to help clear their airways so they can breath through their nose again—all without waking the other sleeper.

Bodytrak has unveiled its first activity tracker that measures your vital signs discreetly through your ear.Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Shows CES in Vegas, the so-called "hearable" monitors your core body temperature, heart rate, speed, distance and cadence, or regular rhythm or beat, in real-time.This is combined with an analytics platform to help boost performance and improve recovery time.The ear is unique because it is the only location in the body from which a combination of core body temperature and heart rate can be measured accurately together.Bodytrak is also water resistant and works as an earphone that lets you listen to music and make and receive calls.In addition to being less obtrusive, Bodytrak claims the hearable s proximity to the brain, enables it to pick up very accurate and immediate changes in the body.

I can barely get a pair of high-end Bluetooth buds with foam or silicone tips to fit comfortably in my ears and stay there while I work out, let alone a pair of hard plastic earphones.And the EarPods Apple includes right out of the iPhone box fall out of my ears if a breeze wafts near them just so.I ran on a treadmill at 6mph to see if the impact would dislodge them, but to no avail.I hit the elliptical to keep the sweat momentum going.Then I headed out into the elements for my usual 3 mile morning run through Brooklyn on a mix of sidewalks and park trails.There s wind to watch out for, New Yorkers to dodge, and hills to jog up and then back down.

Call it the year of the beta: many advancements were either first introduced in 2016, or barely made their way from the concept stage to the market.Apple s Siri started things off on iOS in 2011, Google Now followed on Android a year later in 2012, and Microsoft finally completed the triumvirate with Cortana on Windows Phone 8.1 in 2014.While personal digital assistants are still mostly limited to answering questions and processing computing instructions like setting reminders and running apps, they continue to expand with new skills that are often server-side, and so simply show up to users as new functionality.HoloLens is expensive and not yet a consumer-level product, but it pushed AR into the general consciousness in a way that smartphone-based augmented reality AR software never could.Windows Holographic makes adding AR to applications relatively easy for Windows 10 developers, meaning that by the time consumer-level HoloLens and OEM equivalents make it to market, a host of applications should be ready to make use of them, and developers will have tools built to code even more.Not only can Xbox Play Anywhere games run on both Xbox and Windows 10, but game saves, game add-ons, and achievements carry across systems.

A photo illustration shows a Yahoo logo on a smartphone in front of a displayed cyber code and keyboard on December 15, 2016. Reuters - Yahoo Inc s secret scanning of customer emails at the behest of a U.S. spy agency is part of a growing push by officials to loosen constitutional protections Americans have against arbitrary governmental searches, according to legal documents and people briefed on closed court hearings.The order on Yahoo from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court FISC last year resulted from the government s drive to change decades of interpretation of the U.S. Constitution s Fourth Amendment right of people to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures, intelligence officials and others familiar with the strategy told Reuters.The unifying idea, they said, is to move the focus of U.S. courts away from what makes something a distinct search and toward what is reasonable overall.The surveillance court, whose members are appointed by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, oversees and approves the domestic pursuit of intelligence about foreign powers.The ODNI is expected to disclose as soon as next month an estimated number of Americans whose electronic communications have been caught up in online surveillance programs intended for foreigners, U.S. lawmakers said.

Companies like Hot Toys are known for their incredibly realistic action figures, but you can only pack so much detail into a toy that s 12-inches tall.So a Chinese company called The Toys Asia has taken the concept of an action figure to a whole new level with a life-size, fully-animated version of Iron Man s armor.At the push of a button on the included remote control, this Iron Man figure completely opens up to allow Tony Stark to step inside—at least in theory.Once the 28-second long, incredibly satisfying transformation is complete, you can see all of the suit s inner details that are rarely revealed on a smaller action figure.But as a result of there being some 567 individual parts that make up this collectible, there s not quite enough room for someone to actually climb inside the armor.That might be a little disappointing after you ve spent 2.5 million Chinese yuan to add this to your collection, which works out to just shy of $360,000 in US currency.
