A couple of weeks ago, Hanx Writer, a typewriter app from movie star Tom Hanks, shot to the top of the Apple App Store. I guess there must be something in the air, because it’s not the only iPad-into-typewriter app to launch recently.

There’s also Typing Writer, an app created by Stephen Elliott, founder of the literary website The Rumpus, along with Eli Horowitz, Chris Ying, and Russell Quinn.

Elliott stopped by the TechCrunch New York office a few weeks ago to show off the app — I haven’t used both of them, but judging from what’s been written, the Hanx Writer app emphasizes nostalgia for things like the sound of the typewriter, while Typing Writer may be more of a practical writing tool, with an emphasis on moving forward as you write, rather than constantly going back and tinkering.

Intel’s CEO Envisions A Future Where Wearables Don’t Look Like Wearables — And It’s Not That Far Away

TechCrunch

brian-krzanichIntel CEO Brian Krzanich foresees a day when a wearable is no longer seen a one-size-fits-all device that you put on your wrist. That day could be coming sooner rather than later, as Intel-based wearable products will likely be shown off in the coming weeks at New York Fashion Week.

“Wearables” is still a nascent product category, but one that Intel has a vested interest in. After all, the company acquired wearable maker Basis for around $100 million earlier this year.

Intel isn’t alone, however. Everyone from major consumer electronics manufacturers like Samsung and LG to startups like Pebble and Meta, are seeking to create “smart” devices that users can wear.

For the most part, wearables have been split into one of two camps — those targeted at users who want to better connect with and get notifications from their mobile phones and other devices, and others for tracking…

Five easy ways to keep your business secure that you might not have considered

Gigaom

Another day, another massive security breach, this time courtesy of hackers who somehow gained entrance into the systems of J.P.

According to statistics from the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a non-profit advocacy group that logs data breaches, 206 security breaches have been recorded so far in 2014 alone, afflicting organizations as varied as Dairy Queen, the U.S. Investigations Services (USIS), a UPS Store in Atlanta, Georgia and online retailer [company]Backcountry Gear[/company]. As you can tell, you don’t have to be a massive financial institution or a government agency to be at risk.

That being said, there are some…
