  While other smart watches have come to market since its campaign, the Pebble is arguably the first to get mass adoption. And it’s the only watch that works cross-platform. And while Pebble doesn’t have any new hardware yet (that we know of), they are updating the software with a lot of improvements with version 2.5 today. The first improvement is that emojis can now be viewed on the Pebble’s screen, fixing the issue of the square boxes being there instead. There is also a new Compass app that can be downloaded...

It takes a good bit of courage, as well as a slight dose of desperation, to knowingly turn a blind eye to the specific guidelines set by your idol, mentor and forerunner, to whom you basically owe everything. “No one is going to buy a phone you can’t get your hand around” said Steve Jobs in 2010. “Bigger than bigger” said Tim Cook upon unveiling the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, at last acknowledging the superiority of the phablet. Sorry, the “iPhablet”. Bold move, when Cupertino knew full well it was exposing...

There are always apps that will notify you that something is happening on multiple devices, even when you’re just using one at the time. But soon Skype will not be on that list. Skype has announced a new feature for their app they call “active endpoint” which will contain chat notifications to only the device you’re currently using, rather than every device you have that has Skype installed. So if you’re on your phone, your tablet and computer will not show notifications. From Skype’s blog: “If...

Today Samsung has released a new ad for the Galaxy S5 and they are targeting iPhone users once again. For those of you who may be unaware, for the past few month it has been rumored that the new iPhone will come in a new screen size, either 4.7″ or 5.5″ (or both). If that happens that would remove a marketing reason for people to get another device, so Samsung has preemptively put out an ad. The ad clearly goes after users who are waiting on a bigger screened iPhone and showing them they have the option to not wait and buy...

Samsung has long targeted Apple with their ads, and the new one is no exception. This new ad uses Samsung’s new Ultra Power Saving mode and the fact that you can swap a battery if needed. The ad calls iPhone users “wall huggers,” who are always huddled around outlets looking to charge their devices. As an iPhone user, I am actually a little annoyed at how small the battery is in mAh vs the GS5, but sometimes it’s not that bad. The battery difference is 1,570 mAh in the iPhone 5s and 2800 mAh in the Galaxy S5....

Today the social navigation app Waze has been updated to version 3.8, bringing improvements to both the UI and the location sharing options. Waze now lets you find your friends that are in your contacts, allowing you to sync your contact list with Waze friends. So if you and a friend are both going somewhere, but in different cars, you will be able to see each other on the map. And even if someone is not in your personal contact list, you can share your current location to them, along with recent and favorite addresses. When the location...
