The developer of one of the most popular iPhone apps has accused Apple of changing the price of its $10 app to "free" just hours before the release of Apple's new mobile operating system, iOS 8. Multiple technology news sites posted reports last night claiming that the #1 paid productivity app, 1Password , had gone free ahead of the release of iOS 8 tomorrow. This was exciting news, as the popular app helps keep passwords secure and makes it more difficult for hackers to gain access to online accounts.

Apple is a habitual party crasher, but can the company's history of arriving late and making a big splash in various gadget categories continue with the Apple Watch? The technology company was a late entrant into many of its most prominent product categories: the iPod wasn't the first digital music player and the iPad wasn't the first tablet. But in most cases, the innovation the company infused into its devices ignited previously dormant markets - - and Apple products became "must haves."
