LG Watch Urbane LTE webOS

I can’t believe I’m saying this but… webOS looks like a great smartwatch platform

By about 6 hours ago.

Of all the failed smartphone platforms I’ve seen over the years, webOS’s death was the most tragic because it really was a wonderfully intuitive platform that was  especially good for multitasking. Ever since Palm got bought out by HP, which subsequently sold webOS to LG, the platform has basically been dead although it always pops up every now and then running on a TV or a washing machine. However, a great video of LG’s Watch Urbane LTE has me thinking that webOS might have a 17th life as a wearables platform. More →

Meet Alcatel’s new Android phones, the biggest underdogs of MWC 2015

Apple’s 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models are the smartphones to beat this year, and some companies have already come out with worthy rivals, including the HTC One M9 and the Galaxy S6 that both debuted at this year’s Mobile World Congress. But these top devices were not the only Android handsets unveiled at the show, with one company coming out with a set of brand new smartphones that, coincidentally or not, have exactly the same screen sizes as Apple’s 2014 iPhones.

It sounds like the Apple Watch is swiping another idea from the Moto X

Apple on Monday will announce more details about its first smartwatch, likely addressing many of the questions left unanswered when the Apple Watch was initially unveiled during the iPhone 6 event last September. The company is expected to reveal exact pricing details for all the various Apple Watch models and accessories, alongside launch details for several markets. Furthermore, the company will likely address battery life concerns for the device, and further demo its features and customization options.

Speaking of Apple Watch personalization, French publication iPhonote says it learned from a source familiar with Apple’s plans that the company intends to offer engraving options to Watch buyers in the future, just as it does with some other products. More →

Spotless is a new iPhone app that will automatically delete troll comments on Instagram

If there is one thing that rings true on every corner of the Internet, it’s this: where there is a comments section, there will be trolls. Some people seemingly have nothing better to do than to sit around and post malicious and inflammatory comments all day, and they tend to ruin any chances of people having an intelligent conversation.

Of course, it’s not just blogs and news sites that have to worry about trolls, and Instagram users are all too familiar with that fact. But now, there may finally be an app that can rid your Instagram photo feed of any and all traces of those annoying troll comments and spam. More →

Think the Galaxy S6’s hardware rips off the iPhone? Take a look at its software

Think the Galaxy S6’s hardware rips off the iPhone? Take a look at its software

From a hardware perspective, there’s been a lot of talk regarding how the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy S6 borrows a lot of design inspiration from the iPhone 6. Indeed, it’s hard to look at the two devices side by side and not see a number of striking similarities between the two.

And, truth be told, that’s quite all right. Apple, after all, shouldn’t be the only company on the planet allowed to make thinner smartphones with advanced and sturdier materials. Further, it’s not as if Apple itself is shy about lifting design cues from smartphones that it itself deems to be inspiring. But where Samsung runs into foul territory with the S6 is software.

The iPad Pro’s display might be unlike anything available on the market

A plethora of 12.9-inch iPad Pro reports have hit the web in recent days, including reports that Apple has postponed the launch of the device in part because it’s working to fit the larger iPad with a full-sized USB port. That wouldn’t be the only new feature the larger iPad might offer, as Digitimes has learned more details about a different iPad component Apple plans to change — its display. More →

Lenovo’s awesome Yoga 3 Pro has me even more excited for the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air

Not to long ago I wrote about the agonizing decision I will have to make this year: Namely, picking between the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air and the 12-inch iPad Pro. While it’s still too early to say what would be the better choice between the two, I’m definitely more excited right now about the slimmer MacBook Air model, and I have a Lenovo laptop to thank for it.
