LAS VEGAS -- Sleep monitoring has turned into a popular digital activity. You buy a piece of hardware or load up an app and snooze with your iPhone tucked in with you. Or you can drop just under $8,000 and pick up the new Sleep Number x12 bed instead. You'll get sleep monitoring and whole lot more tech crammed under the covers.
The x12 has the dual-air adjustable mattress system that made the company famous, but then it goes off the high-tech deep end with all sorts of extra goodies. It integrates sleep-monitoring technology from Bam Labs that is much like Santa Claus. It knows when you're asleep. It knows when you're awake. It knows your heart and breathing rates. It can capture data from two different people and sends it all to an iOS app that gives you a sleeping score along with the details of each night's rest (or unrest).… Read more
To ring in the new year, Snapchat suffered from a fairly large data breach. A file containing 4.6 million usernames and phone numbers was posted for all to view.

Do you always glance at the clock when the numbers hit 2:22? Or do number dates that line up just so make you nervous or excited? Then today, which brings the one-of-a-kind day-month-year lineup 11-12-13, is your day. Unless, of course, you live in Europe, where people write the day ahead of the month, 12-11-13.
Numerology is the mystical belief that numbers hold special meanings and possible divination of significant events to come. Many numerologists study double "master numbers" -- such as 11 and 22 -- and their significance in Viking Runes, the Kabbalah, and the I Ching. Not to mention the endless studies on such unlucky numbers as 666 (sign of the Beast); 13 (in Western culture); and 4 (in Chinese culture).
Whether you're new to this numbers game or already hooked, Sudoku1 offers numerous ways to play. There are some challenges to the dated interface, but the actual game screen looks fine and you can customize it nearly anyway you want. The biggest downside wasn't its utilitarian design, however; it was the background music that played with no apparent way to turn it off.
When you open Sudoku1 for the first time, you need to choose between French and English. You're then presented with a small but somewhat confusing array of options divided into Championship Mode and Free … Read more
