So cool! NASA (with help from Boeing and SpaceX) is back in the shuttle busines!
Does the iPhone 6 Plus’s stabilizer work? I strapped it (and a 5s for comparison) to a bike, and went a-riding…
JUST POSTED: my review of the new iPhone 6 models—with video, of course!

A minor, but fun, Pogue video: Why can’t TV screens auto-stabilize shaky footage?

Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” actually works even better as a bluegrass number…

New trend: Online video gamers place fake 911 calls, sending SWAT teams to opponents’ real-world houses. Horrible.
Here’s an excellent review of the new Motorola 360, the first ROUND smartwatch.
Incredibly cool: Someone edited together snippets from 20 YouTube videos of amateur musicians…into an all new song.
OK, see you here in 2 minutes, for an international town-hall Q&A session about the Apple Watch and iPhone 6!
Here’s the CORRECT link for my 2pm ET live Q&A about Apple’s new stuff:

TONIGHT'S MEDITATION: I sold my vacuum the other day. All it seemed to be doing was collecting dust.
Many are delighted that Apple gave them U2’s new album free—but many don’t want it. How to delete it from your phone:
Time-lapse of an INCREDIBLE artist drawing a photo-realistic pic of Robin Williams. Freehand.
My new video: The world’s smallest, lightest monitor—for traveling laptoppers like me. I actually bought this thing.
Pogue’s hands-on first impressions of the new iPhones:
Leaks. NFC payments. Large phones. A flurry of different models and choices. It’s not Steve Jobs’ Apple anymore!
10% of Americans refuse to vaccinate their kids. They should watch tonight’s NOVA special documentary, “Vaccines.”
My first writing job was Macworld magazine; 13 wonderful years. Today, nearly the entire staff has been laid off. Breaks my heart.

Here’s my column on the Apple Watch: Everything Apple said, and a bunch of stuff they DIDN’T say!
Argh. Sorry about last tweet. Apple Watch is OK for RAIN and washing hands—NOT for showering or swimming.
Now we know what's in the huge white temporary building next door: iPhones and iWatches to play with!
It’s strongly looking like the Apple Watch is not waterproof. That’s a biggggggg problem.
Apple is giving U2’s new album away, free, to EVERYONE. It’s already in your iTunes library, they say.
I love U2, but today at the Apple event, they were performing as U2Loud.
OK, that's it for the Apple announcements. We have stories ALREADY on on each news bit; more shortly. See you there!
So the iWatch has FOUR ways to input: Speak, touch the screen, turn the crown, press the button under the crown. Brainwaves coming in 2.0.
OHO! "One more ONE MORE thing"--you'll be able to use Apple Pay with Apple Watch! Pay for stuff by waving your hand.
On Twitter, @maughmer says: "The Onion has already reported that the Apple Watch allows users to start and stop the flow of time."
@Pogue The Onion has already reported that it allows users to start and stop the flow of time.

Apple Watch will be $350. When it comes out…NEXT YEAR.
LOVE this magnetic charger. Just clinks onto the back of the watch. I'd like that for my phone, camera, and MiFi, please.
Yes, the iWatch REQUIRES the iPhone. Probably no surprise there. (iPhone 5 or later.)
Apple Watch controls your Apple TV, serves as a remote control for your iPhone camera, works as walkie-talkie, cleans your gutters!
"Why would you use a smartwatch instead of your phone?" Health tracking is one key reason. The iWatch seems to be a tracking superstar.
The Apple Watch prods you to move more, stand more, and eat more oatmeal. (OK, not that last one.)
All the new stuff today is "Apple Pay," "Apple Watch," etc. Wonder if the era of the i-Name is over?
(Join @YahooTech here --for the finale of our live Apple blog. Much more info than I can type by myself!)
I can't type fast enough to show all the stuff they're showing. But this is by FAR the richest, deepest, most elaborate smartwatch OS ever.
At Starwood hotels, you can unlock your hotel room by waving the iWatch. I WAS ALIVE TO SEE THE DAY!
And yes, you can tweet from the iWatch. Two taps, and then speak.
(Correction to my earlier post: The watch doesn't have its own GPS. Uses the iPhone's location info.)
From Twitter: "How much memory?" "Waterproof?" "Battery life?" "Price?" "Release date?" Apple hasn't said yet.
O, M, G. You can draw messages to each other. Ain't NOBODY done this before, at least on a watch, at leas not like this.
Apple Watch does GPS and navigation, of course. Question: Will smartwatches lead to MORE or FEWER accidents?
