Move Over Moto 360! Huawei’s Gorgeous Android Wear Smartwatch Now Has The Floor

Motorola dazzled us all when it unveiled the Moto 360 nearly a year ago. With its classic, round shape (which was marred slightly by its flat-tire display shape, that facilitated the inclusion of an ambient light sensor), it was easily the best looking of the first generation Android Wear devices. LG tried to one up the Moto 360 with a fully rounded display on the LG G Watch R, but it featured a more “utilitarian” design and a thicker bezel.

The upcoming LG Watch Urbane is a step in the right direction towards capturing the simplistic beauty of the Moto 360, but a new smartwatch from an unlikely source has just leaked ahead of the Mobile World Congress.

BGR at MWC 2015: On the hunt for the next big thing

 BGR at MWC 2015: On the hunt for the next big thing

The 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress show that is about to kick off in Barcelona, Spain will likely be one of the best in recent years when it comes to new hardware announcements, as at least two hot mobile devices will be unveiled during the show — the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 each have their own special events on Sunday.

But that’s not all that’s happening at MWC, as there will be plenty of interesting products on display coming from much smaller players.

Industry voice: In the digital age, is data the heart and soul of who we are?

National security and the right to privacy have not always been the most comfortable of bedfellows – and never has this been made more apparent than in the wake of the recent North Korea Sony hack and the US Central Command’s Twitter feed being taken over.

The last few months have highlighted the importance of cyber-security as ‘hacktivism’ has become less the preserve of online geeks and is now regularly making front page news. It seems utterly feasible to us now that warfare of the future will take place on the digital battleground… and without showing my age too much it brings to mind the 80s cult film WarGames.

In the cyber-age data is king, and the recent news that David Cameron pressed Barack Obama to force US internet giants such as Facebook and Twitter to help surveillance agencies prevent acts of physical and cyber-terrorism only serves to highlight the importance of understanding data.

Despite Limited Device Support, Windows 10 For Phones Has 60,000 Testers

Microsoft is faced with a monumental task in mobile. That task? Quite simply, it’s to become relevant in a landscape that is currently dominated by Android and iOS (in that order), the two of which account have collectively staked a claim to 96 percent of the world’s smartphone market. On the bright side for Microsoft, Windows 10 is an opportunity to do things differently, and despite the massive disparity that currently exists, there are currently 60,000 people testing Windows 10 for phones.

It’s a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things, sure, but that’s not the point. Microsoft should view it as a good sign that tens of thousands of people are so eager and anxious that they’re willing to install a test build on their Windows Phone to see what the fuss is about. It’s even more impressive when you factor in the extremely limited availability — Windows 10 is only available for half a dozen Lumia devices (630, 635, 636, 638, 730, and 830).

iOS 8.2 Could See Public Release Next Week, Two More Betas of iOS 8.3 to Come

ios 8 icon iOS 8.2 Could See Public Release Next Week, Two More Betas of iOS 8.3 to ComeApple may be planning to release iOS 8.2 to the public as early as next Monday, reports BGR. iOS 8.2 has been in testing since November and notably contains support for the Apple Watch. The March release date has been rumored for several weeks now, but earlier information pointed towards a launch a bit later in the month, possibly during the second week of March.

A Monday, March 2 release date for iOS 8.2 would mean the software would be released to consumers a full week ahead of Apple’s scheduled March 9 “Spring Forward” media event, where the company is expected to divulge additional details on the Apple Watch.

BGR is fairly accurate when it comes to iOS release date predictions. The site correctly determined several iOS 7 beta release dates, but it has been wrong on occasion. Because March 2 is not in line with earlier predictions, BGR could be off by a week, but we will certainly be seeing a public release of iOS 8.2 sometime during the first two weeks of March, even if the March 2 date is inaccurate.

 Do you remember what Facebook, YouTube and Google looked like years ago?

The Internet has evolved at an incredible pace. Websites that looked amazing less than a decade ago are absolutely hideous by today’s standards — even the websites that are now worth billions of dollars.
