Why I Would Not Be Storing My Phone Under My Pillow At Night

A girl in Texas had a smartphone catch fire which she kept under her pillow at night
Teens Samsung Galaxy Bursts Into Flames
There was a third party battery in the phone which Samsung advises against and they advise against covering up the phone with bedding or anything similar that should fall into the category of common sense.

Is It Worthwhile Repairing A Tablet When You Break The Screen 
A lot of the time , no 
Dropping and damaging the screens on some of them can be from $200 and up to repair 
You are hoping that when you dropped it , you did not damage the electronics underneath 
Example , Microsoft Surface , screen replacement $220 – $500 

if you bought a cheap tablet then no but shop around for a price.

Apple Rumours
Apple are the best marketers when it comes to releasing new products 

iPhone6

A new iPhone possibly 2 of them, expect to see a 4.7inch phone , 13MP camera 1704 x 960 Retina resolution that is a boost from the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s
We may see a sapphire glass display , extremely tough 
Bigger battery combined with a better processor ( more powerful , the A8 ) will hopefully see increased battery life , however bigger screens take more battery to run.
Other Devices
We should see a new iPad , we may see a new 12 inch Macbook Air with a new design and retina screen , we may see a new iMac with a 4k display 

Will we see an iWatch , maybe , maybe not , Apple can sit back , let the category develop and then pounce – remember the introduction of the iPhone
