Who says that the smartwatches have to come up with the faceless futuristic design by default? Is not it boring when someone can see it from a mile that you are wearing a smartwatch? Luckily for us LG introduced a fantastic design that combines the classic design with the features of a modern smartphone.

The catch with the LG Urban SmartWatch model is that you cannot tell a difference when you compare it with the classic watches, until the very moment you start to using it. As soon as you do so, Android Wear, which is hidden within, wakes up and the magic begins. That is the great thing about it.

It is just like you put a new soul, a cyber soul, into the old and the traditional metal package. The next thing you know your classic watch travels straight into the bright future. On the second thought, this is exactly what we need to ensure a win-win situation for the smartphones. Right?

Otherwise, we will have a mission impossible at our doorsteps in convincing people that is just the thing they need. You just gave $600 for the new smartphone, and now someone asks you additional $300 for a smartwatch. Can you swallow that with no second thoughts or hesitation? LG has shown us the way.

The Fifth Man

Who were the founding fathers of Facebook? Do you know them? Their names? Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin, and Chris Hughes. But, what about the so-called fifth man? There is a little bit of controversy associated with his work and contribution to this social network.

His name is Andrew McCollum. At the beginning, Mark asked him to deal with the design issues. Back in those days when Facebook was still a cyber baby with an uncertain future, the design tasks were not extremely popular among the founding fathers. Andrew did a thing or two, here and there.

One fine day, he had decided that building an app is a great thing, but finishing the college is much better. You know the rest of this story, don’t you? Nowadays, Andrew works in one company, and Mark owns an empire. So, what is the moral of this story? You should stick with your college friends.

No matter what. Forget about your education and to the hills of business glory. Bill Gates also does not have an official college degree. We are too lazy to google, but we do not know what was the situation with Steve Jobs. The fifth man, who could have owned the entire cyber kingdom. How sad story, indeed.

Android Chorus

The busy little bees from the Japanese division of Google have come up with a mind blowing idea. They have created a chorus of almost 300 Android smartphones and tablets. You can rest assured that each of these devices has a specific role just like in the real life chorus. What about the results?

Well, all the people, who had a chance to listen to this Android chorus, were thrilled. The one thing is missing, though. We would really like to hear what were the preferred melodies in this chorus to perform. On the other hand, how about a tour? We are not making fun of a brilliant idea, that is for sure.

It comes without saying that this is an extremely efficient way to promote your products and services. You can be a judge of it with a few simple clicks on YouTube. At the same time, we are eager to hear what Google has to say about it. How about setting the next world record for the number of devices in the chorus?

Maybe, Apple is watching this one closely. The chorus of iPhones is already working on its favorite compositions. The war of chorus. How this one sounds to you? Our hats off to the Google samurai with the strong preferences for music. We are convinced that this is only the beginning of one wonderful story.

The New HTTP/2 Standard

Forget about the grandpa HTTP, because the new HTTP/2 standard is here. We only need to wait for a couple more checks and tests, here and there. What can we expect in return? Better Internet connection and improved security. Let us not forget the quicker web pages upload. Is this enough for you?

It comes without saying that is always a good thing to see some improvements in our brave new cyber world. Unfortunately, we often tend to miss the digital forest for the trees of new features. What is going to happen with our privacy? Not a word about it. Admire the new connection speed and stability.

But, forget to ask the questions that truly matter. That is what our new digital world order is all about. Our shiny new gadgets keep us forgetting the most crucial things about our cyber security and privacy. We are not partybreakers. Do not get us wrong. We do not want to spoil your good mood.

So, enjoy this moment of sweet expectation. Google is eager to get its hands first on this new Internet standard. We do not even dare to imagine what Chrome is going to look alike with the new HTTP/2. We will have to wait and see, what is going to be. Maybe, we are going to regret it. No one knows, for sure.

Life Isn’t Fair

So, what are we supposed to do about it? Well, Bill Gates has only a couple of words of advice for you. Get used to it. Accept it. Because, there are very few things you will be able to change or control in your life. Is there more of his life changing wisdom, he can share with us? Apparently there are.

As expected, some of them are nothing more than bragging of one of the richest people in the world. But, some of them really make you think deeper. As soon as you hear them, you will realize that this man has done some incredible things in his life, probably not by an accident. Here they are in all of their glory.

A customer, who always complains too much, is the best possible source you can possibly have about your product’s characteristics. On the other hand, believe it or not, Bill Gates prefers lazy, but smart workers. Why? They will always find the most efficient and shortest way for a job to get done.

Here is one about the money. When you have money, the only person you forget is only you yourself. However, when you do not have money, then the whole world forgets about you. Is this true, or what? Maybe, it is a good idea for Bill Gates to write his memoirs or a book about life philosophy.

Smartphone Smart Choices

Posted on Updated on

There is a reason why your smartphones are treated and called as such. However, very often we can diminish their smart character with our dumb choice of apps we are downloading and using. How to avoid making a serious mistake? Well, you should use an additional pair of eyes while choosing.
The shiny world of available apps is not a paradise place. According to some most recent surveys, almost 15% of all available apps are absolutely useless and even harmful for your smartphone. Forget about ratings and focus entirely on the purpose itself. Here is a simple and efficient advice.

Everything that claims of being able to fix or extend your smartphone’ battery from the Play Store or Apple Store should be avoided. Shaking apps, which can also scan numerous pointless things, are not something you should install on your smartphone. Unfortunately, there is so much more.

All kinds of boosters, improvers, cleaners, and similar apps, should be avoided at all costs. This list can go on and on. Then, how to make the right choice? It all begins and ends with a simple question. Ask yourself, do you really need a certain app, and what could it do for your smartphone.

Windows 10: To Be Or Not Free

Posted on Updated on

Poor old grandpa Microsoft. It simply does not know what to do with the new Windows 10. So many things to worry about. On the one side, you have to deal with an entire army of loyal, but annoyingly stubborn users, who just do not want to give up on the old outdated versions, such as XP or Vista.

On the other side, you have to figure out what to do in the terms of an unavoidable question related to the payment itself. How much and whom to charge in the first place? We have heard more than serious rumors about a possibility for free versions of Windows 10 for Windows 8 and 8.1 users.

Now, Microsoft has changed its mind, again. It turns out that only Windows 7 Pro, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 Pro users can expect a free upgrade. This is not going to be the case with all users, who run the Enterprise editions. In other words, corporate users will have to pay for it, with no exceptions.

Is this a good and recommended business move? Well, for what is worth, having in mind what is happening with the Windows 10 promotion and its birth pains, the payment troubles should not be among Microsoft’s priorities. Why? Well, if there is no one to use your software, then you do not have to worry about the payment. Right?
