When the Apple Watch hits the consumer market in April, it will not have capabilities to monitor blood pressure, heart rate, stress factors and other health issues that the company originally specified when the company announced the device in September, 2014.

According to The Wall Street Journal Some of the omitted health features "didn't work reliably" while "others proved too complex." Although the health-monitoring features won't be in the initial version of the Apple Watch, the company still hopes to include them in future versions.

Red Hat has announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform release 6.0, providing an enterprise-grade cloud platform based on the OpenStack Juno milestone version.

Red Hat is also going a step beyond what was in the OpenStack Juno release by providing its users with a technology preview of the TripleO OpenStack-on-OpenStack project.

Among the big enhancements in the OpenStack Juno release is the inclusion of the Sahara data processing project that enables Hadoop big data workloads to run in an OpenStack cloud.

Google has added a 14-day grace period to its 90-day deadline for software vendors to patch security vulnerabilities reported to them under the search giant’s controversial Project Zero software flaw research and disclosure program.

For disclosure deadlines that expire on a weekend or a holiday, Google will move the deadline to the next working day, members of the Project Zero team said in a blog post.

Panasonic launched the semi-rugged Toughbook 54 laptop, which includes a 5th Generation Intel Core i5 vPro processor and has 11 hours of battery life.

Toughbook 54 is available with discrete graphics, dual drives, up to 16GB of memory, and a 1080p full HD display and webcam.

It comes in four models and has a variety of optional features, such as smart card readers and fingerprint identification. The new laptop was tested by an independent third-party lab to survive 3-foot drops, according to the company.
