Tim Cook seemed to have the best week in tech, getting a ticket to the State of the Union speech and giving a talk at the Goldman Sachs technology conference earlier in the week. On the rumor front, this week we had to hear about the coming of the iWatch. A rumor that actually refuses to die. There was a lock screen exploit found in the latest iOS update. We covered a lot more than the top stories here at Macgasm, and the highlights are included below. After that, we’ve got some interesting stories from around the web worth checking out. Finally we have some of our open deals for you to check out.
