Mickey and Minnie Mouse can now speak the time in watchOS 3 — One of the coolest Apple Watch faces has been Mickey Mouse, tapping his foot in time with the seconds. watchOS 3 adds Minnie to the fun, plus they can each speak the time out loud with a tap. I’ll show you how. (watchOS 3 doesn’t automatically install the Minnie face so you’ll need go to this Apple forum discussion to find out how.) And this is how to get them to talk.

iOS 10 Maps ‘Overview’ buttons moved to a swipe-Up drawer — The Maps app got a major overhaul in iOS 10. It has a new look and feel and a new layout. One of the basic changes is that the Overview button moved from the main interface to the drawer at the bottom of the screen. Here’s how to find it. And here’s how to use Maps Extensions.

Microsoft app helps staffing rosters — A new Microsoft app for Office 365, StaffHub, seeks to make rostering easier and replace the break room calendar. StaffHub has a couple of key differences to Calendar-style apps: workers can swap shifts themselves or ask others to cover for them. StaffHub’s also a messaging app, so, for instance, one cook can send another cook a message about an ingredient shipment that’s scheduled to arrive. (Microsoft didn’t say, but those employee-to-employee messages would presumably be monitored by an employer.) The other difference from your typical shared calendar, unfortunately, is the price: A company must be signed up with at least an Office 365 kiosk license to use it, which costs $4 per user, per month.
