Is that a hot iPhone 15 in your pocket, or... ?
Every year a new scare story appears soon after Apple introduces new iPhone models. It's a regular occurrence, and the stories almost always disappear once the initial furor dies down.

This year's scare story is no different — it's not even new — though enterprise IT may want to add some third-party applications to its ban list for managed devices in response.

iPhone feels the heat? The iPhone 15, we're told, has a problem with heat. Literally tens of people who claimed to have purchased one of the new devices raced to share overheating issues they claimed were driving the phone's temperature sky high.

Google's Chromebook Plus initiative pushes higher spec standards and handy software tools
Google's pitch for Chromebooks has been pretty straightforward for a while now. They're laptops that don't require a lot of fuss, with easy set-up, fast boot times and a simple software update process. They're also secure from things like viruses and malware, and Google recently committed to 10 years of automatic software updates.

The hardware side of things isn't quite as simple. Chromebooks started as cheap computers meant mostly for web browsing, but both Chrome OS and the laptops themselves have gotten a lot more advanced since then. There are still plenty of budget models out there, many with questionable build quality or specs; there are also lots of "premium" Chromebooks with powerful internals, high-end screens and great industrial design.

Then there's a middle ground: utilitarian but well-designed laptops with powerful enough hardware for most users that don't break the bank. In the last few years, I've had a hard time finding that sweet spot, but today Google is announcing the Chromebook Plus initiative to make that easier.

Essentially, Chromebook Plus devices have a guaranteed set of specs to ensure a consistent and quality experience. That means every Chromebook Plus has an Intel Core or AMD Ryzen (7000 series) processor, at least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. A full 1080p IPS display and 1080p webcam also come standard.
