Now there are exceptions to this of course, but when I tell people that in five years they will no longer need a new car, I get a look like I’m nuts.  But once I explain that you are getting a new(ish) car and its a ‘need’ not want, then they are a little less… Read More


I’m sure you have seen the news.  Microsoft has a private beta out there for 48, now 24 hours, and then … well we do not know what will happen then.  However, the simple beta is mostly about getting bluetooth notification with Pebble to work.  Although this sounds pretty simple and not indicative of an… Read More

Ok, that was horrible and I should be bludgeon with a heavy brass object, however, once I explain what xTV is, perhaps you will forgive me a little bit. “ok, fine then, what is xTV?” XTV is a internet video service for the enterprise. (IPTV) But it’s not useful to just enterprise users.  Imagine you have… Read More

It was announce through Forbes that Microsoft is planning on releasing a watch in the next few weeks.  No solid news on what it will look like yet, but my bet is that it will look somewhat like the LG; clean, simple square.  It is reported that it will have bio metric tracking as is… Read More

Apple says today’s remote control is outdated.

The disastrous iOS 8.0.1 update that curtailed users’ cellular signals and created other bugs earlier this week may have a connection to another major glitch in recent history: the shaky rollout of Apple Maps . The company said less than 40,000 users downloaded iOS 8.0.1 before it was pulled over an hour after its release… Read More

Its been 24 hours since the Apple Watch debut.  Now that we have seen more pictures of the watch and learned a bit more about it, I think I can finally give my impressions.  This of course is tempered by the fact I have not seen it in person and there are still things we… Read More


I have been pretty harsh on Samsung basically asking why are they throwing everything but the kitchen sink onto a watch making it large and ugly.  And why have they not released a curved screen yet? Well they finally did.  And I think they got it mostly right this time. The Gear 2 S is… Read More

Last week at Google I/O, they sprang a cardboard phone holder that basically turn your smartphone into a VR HMD display device.  Its extremely  cleaver, and was quite the hit.  So much so, there is a strong demand for these guys even a week later.  Now we are hearing rumors that a plastic version of… Read More

I have a Samsung III.  That means I cannot use a very simple but useful command that lets me load the last app used but not the current app.  However, there is a way around this. In fact, you can do something even cooler if you are willing to put in the time.  For this… Read More

In Barcelona Samsung released 3 new Gear watches.  Well, really two and an exercise band, but I’m going to call this a watch anyway.  Of these three new smart watches, its the Gear Fit I’m most excited about.  First though, lets talk about the two other Gears, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. Many… Read More

This design concept has been out there for awhile but thought I would point out that we are still just in the beginnings of smart and stylish wearable tech.  This looks like a mix of a smart watch and fuel band using the Apple iOS. Now I think curable display are owned by Samsung, but… Read More

Recently there has been rumors that Samsung will release the new gear and a new set of phones running on the little known Tizen OS.  Which seen a bit odd given the experience they had with Bada.  Remember Bada?  Do not blame you if you do not.  Bada was actually a good OS, and the… Read More

Funny thing, I have been using the iphone since day 1. I have been jailbreaking for almost as long.  However, once the iphone 5 and my first view of iOS7 surfaced, I started to question if I wanted to keep playing this cat and mouse game of jailbreaking, reinstalling everything, losing some functionally because the… Read More

Let the smart watch war begin.  Now to be fair, the Pebble is not from a major player and thus does not have the money to fight a full fight, however, the Pebble is able to surprisingly hold its own from a use point of view.  So lets compare the Gear and the Pebble.  BTW,… Read More

The news has already been out there, Samsung will release their watch Sept 4th beating Apple to the punch.  Apple may not be too worried about this since rumors hold that there will not be an Apple compatible version of the app anytime soon.
