Apple Watch tips: Use Force Touch to start new messages, change music source, clear all notifications, more

To cope with Apple Watch’s relatively small screen size, Apple introduced a hardware feature called Force Touch that invokes app and UI commands with a firm press of the screen. Being hidden by design, these contextual menu options provide deep app control without cluttering the watch face, but can easily be overlooked.

Alibaba's Treasure May Not Open Doors for Yahoo


The market is waiting with bated breath to see the exact size of Alibaba’s IPO, but investors in Yahoo, which owns about 23 percent of Alibaba’s stock, don’t seem impressed. Yahoo’s shares closed Wednesday at $34.07, down 6.6 percent. Yahoo’s stake is worth about $26 billion based on the fair value of about $109 billion Alibaba assigned to its shares in March. Yahoo will sell 40 percent of its Alibaba shares, or 208 million, and might get $10 billion or more. Perhaps investors are concerned because they don’t see much of a future for Yahoo.
