Fully Charged: Apple Watch Hermès hits the web this week, and 2015’s worst passwords

Wake up, grab your phone, and catch up quickly

Apple Watch Hermès hitting web

The pricey Apple Watch Hermès collaboration went on sale in October, but the fashion mash-up isn’t all that easy to find: it’s only available in select Apple and Hermès retail stores. But according to Fashionista, the line will be available this Friday, 22 January from both companies.

The 38mm Double Tour model with the second wraparound loop sells for £1100, the Single Tour model starts at £1000 in both the 38mm and 42mm sizes, and the big Cuff model above sells for £1350 for the 42mm size. All have stainless steel cases, of course. What, you thought they’d give you the aluminum Sport casing with that extravagant leather?

2015’s worst passwords


Got a complicated password? Good – that puts you ahead of the seeming majority of people who don’t put any effort into protecting their accounts. That’s our takeaway from the release of the 25 worst passwords of 2015, compiled from data of more than two million leaked accounts primarily from North American and Western European users.

The passwords "123456" and "password" lead the list – no change from last year, sadly – while other top entries include "qwerty," "football," "12345678," and the newly popular "starwars." Another year, another embarrassing list. Hit the source link below for the full chart, and please change your info if you see anything especially familiar on that list.

Another Apple victory over Samsung

Another Apple victory over Samsung

In what ended up being a huge shoulder shrug of a legal decision, a United States court finally agreed with Apple that Samsung can’t sell certain phones in the U.S. due to patent infringement issues. Only those phones are all ancient – like the Galaxy S III and original Galaxy Note – and aren’t being sold new anywhere anyway.

"We are very disappointed," Samsung said in a statement to Bloomberg. "While this will not impact American consumers, it is another example of Apple abusing the judicial system to create bad legal precedent, which can harm consumer choice for generations to come."

Samsung already paid US$548 million (£387 million) to Apple in December for the long-delayed resolution to another part of this case, and Apple turned around and asked for another US$180 million (£127 million) – no word on whether that request will go anywhere. But at least this particular ruling isn’t likely to mean any real damage for Samsung, given the extreme age of the blocked phones.
