Take $40 off the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS plus cellular models at Walmart


Apple Watches are the enviable devices when it comes to wearable technology. I mean they're basically a tiny phone you can have on your wrist at all times. This kind of advanced technology does not come cheap -- the watches require you to drop a couple hundred bucks -- so, when there's a sale, you want to jump on it while it lasts. And here's some good news: Walmart lowered its prices on the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS plus cellular models. The Series 3 with GPS and cellular gives you the power to leave your phone behind.

When will your iPad become obsolete?


Believe it or not, it's been 12 years since Steve Jobs introduced the iPad to the world. Since then, Apple's iconic tablet has gone through several iterations, adding cellular capability, sophisticated camera technology, and robust processing power. Initially confusing to critics who didn't understand the need for a device that was neither a smartphone nor a laptop, the iPad has proven the haters wrong and become a mainstay. The current iPad lineup consists of the iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad, and iPad mini. Since, this year's Apple events announced the next generation of iPads (and iPad Air) which bumps the older versions of iPads one step closer towards obsolescence.

Apple Watch sequel reportedly includes cellular data


One of the biggest gripes with the now year-old Apple Watch is that it's not very useful away from your iPhone. You can keep track of a run and do a few things on WiFi, but not much more than that. However, that could all change when the sequel rolls around. Wall Street Journal sources hear that the next Watch should include cellular access on top of the expected faster processor. How it would work isn't mentioned, but the odds are that it'd behave like existing cellular smartwatches: you could leave your phone at home while continuing to get notifications and run apps.

Mapping kidney cellular complexity


The prevalence of kidney disease in the United States is 14%, with more than 600,000 patients with kidney failure. Despite the large and growing need for new therapies to treat kidney disease, few have been developed over the past two decades. The kidney's cellular complexity is partly to blame--its functional unit, the nephron, is composed of at least 13 different epithelial cell types, surrounded by an even larger array of supporting vascular, stromal, and immune cells. In disease states, various invading leukocytes and reactive parenchymal cell states further complicate the cellular landscape, making attempts to understand pathophysiology and identify therapeutic targets difficult. However, the advent of massively parallel single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) is transforming our understanding of cellular diversity, offering an unbiased approach to profile not only complex tissues but entire organisms (1, 2).

New report assesses global cellular IoT market through 2025


A new report by TMR Research looks into all possible aspects of the global cellular IoT market through 2025 – trends, market shares, market strategies, growth drivers, restraints, opportunities, regional outlook and key players. According to the report "Cellular IoT Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 – 2025", Wireless area networks (WAN) will drive the growth prospects of the global market from 2017 to 2025. WAN, possible through cellular networks, is projected to connect majority of the devices. Among the key drivers of the market are the growing demand for extended network coverage and outsized capacity to can connect countless devices. TMR Research added that the growth of the NB-IoT segment is another driving force behind the global cellular IoT market.
