  2. Poor battery life is one of the top complaints among mobile phone owners, especially as they run power-hungry apps that can chew up a battery charge before the day is half over. There have been long-running debates over whether closing a background app helps preserve battery charge.

  8. GAINESVILLE, Fla., March 10 (UPI) -- A probiotic pill could one day be used to prevent dental cavities by regulating pH in the mouth, according to scientists at the University of Florida.

Maybe they wanted to let it play out first? Maybe they wanted to watch the continued demise of Google +? I have been saying for over a year that I expect Apple will buy Twitter and will even more tightly integrate it into it's OS's. What do you think? Why have they stayed out for so long?
