This week: Apple Watch apps are hitting the store, we discuss some of the most popular ones; if you want an Apple Watch you’ll need to pre-order—we’ll tell you why and how. Plus: we love selfie sticks; Leander's special way of “bookmarking” webpages; and… Periscope! We’ll tell you all about it and why it’s way better than Meerkat. And stay tuned till the end for Sh*t We’re Into for the non-Apple stuff we’re all really loving so sweetly.
