Since it launched in February I've been a pretty big fan of the Saturday Night Live app, and the latest update should make it quite a bit better.

The ability to use AirPlay to stream your iOS content to your Apple TV is wonderful, but limited. It's easy enough to use at home, but when you visit a friend's house you need to connect to their wireless network before you can stream.

Right now, Apple's AirPlay media streaming requires an established WiFi network to fly. That's fine when you're at home, but do you really want to ask for a friend's hotspot password just to show vacation photos on their Apple TV? Mercifully, iOS 8 will let you skip that hassle.

Last week we had a look at a very impressive Bluetooth speaker set from Edifier, the e25 Luna Eclipse. Those speakers provided both excellent sound quality and futuristic design, and ended up with a top rating from TUAW. This week I'm looking at Libratone's Loop Wireless Speaker, a high-end entry ...
