Today's topics include VMware rolling out the red carpet for containers with its Photon virtualization platform, Uber hiring jeep hackers to improve security, the latest Apple TV rumors and LG unveiling a limited-edition smart watch.

On August 31, VMware launched the VMware Photon platform it originally introduced in April. This is the framework VMware wants to see all its users use as a layer in the virtualized data center.

It's designed to work with containers from a various developers, native cloud-based apps, data center operating systems and anything else an enterprise wants to run in a software-defined data center.

Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek made headlines around the world earlier this month by remotely hacking the electronic controls of a Chrysler Jeep, a stunt that led to the recall of 1.4 million vehicles.

As of today, both researchers are now employed by Uber, tasked with looking at automotive security. Now that they are on the payroll, Uber will presumably be able to provide the two with the time they need to work together to improve automobile security.

According to the latest rumors and reports, the long-anticipated fourth-generation Apple TV set-top box will be priced at $149 or $199 and will be available for purchase in October.

Apple TV, which hasn't had a major upgrade since 2013, is expected to get a slimmer chassis, an updated remote and support for Apple's Siri digital personal assistant.

LG is getting into the luxury smartwatch business with the LG Watch Urbane Luxe, which it will release in October as a premium timepiece that will be limited to 500 copies.

The 23-karat gold Watch Urbane Luxe, which will sport a watchband made from alligator hides, will be sold through Reeds Jewelers in the U.S. initially for $1,195. Preorders are being taken through the Reeds Website, with shipping expected in late October, according to LG.
