LinkedIn Pulse Gets Updated, Offers A More Personalized Business-Oriented News Feed

Just like Facebook, LinkedIn has been trying to dissect its social network into several parts that it builds dedicated apps for.

Moto 360 Set To Receive Android Wear 5.1 OTA Update Starting Today

Android Wear 5.1 is a substantial update. It has rolled out to pretty much all of the current smartwatches, except for the Moto 360. Motorola's smartwatch has been hampered by issues and delays.

2nd Gen Nest Protect Smoke Alarm Is Now Up For Pre-Order (Ships Next Month) From Nest, Google, And Amazon—Old One Drops By $20 In The Google Store

Today Nest has unveiled the second generation of its Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. It will retail for the same $100 as the previous model, and it comes with a number of fixes intended to address the flaws of the first model.

The big new feature is the ability to silence an alarm using the companion app. Other additions include a sensor that can tell the difference between fast and slow fires and a humidity sensor that should prevent the device from going off due to steam. If you have a soon-to-be-released Nest Cam in the same room, the companion app will let you quickly get a view of what's going on once the alarms sound off.
