Third-Party Tesla App Provides Look at Opportunities and Limitations of Apple Watch Development

Apple made its WatchKit SDK available alongside the release of iOS 8.2 and Xcode 6.2 beta in November, enabling developers to begin creating apps and software for the wrist-worn device. Looking beyond mockups and conceptual apps, however, a new third-party Tesla app designed by Eleks Labs offers insight into both the opportunities and limitations that developers face with the first-generation Apple Watch.

OnePlus Teases Custom OxygenOS ROM For ‘One’ Smartphone

Smartphone startup OnePlus is gearing up to reveal its Android ROM, but the date for the unveiling is a matter of debate. The phone maker teased the ROM and announced its name – OxygenOS – and said “Stay tuned; more information is coming February 12th,” in its blog post. Some have taken that to mean that the download will be available on the 12th, but OnePlus now appears to plan only to provide more details (not a download) at the upcoming event.

The new ROM comes after a parting with Cyanogen and some difficulties with India. OnePlus selected the name “OxygenOS” from fan suggestions, because “As an element, Oxygen is the epitome of simplicity, yet it’s also extraordinarily powerful.” Unfortunately, the name is about it for new information at the moment.

Verizon To Make Its Not So Delicious ‘Supercookies’ Opt-Out

AT&T and Verizon Wireless received a lot of backlash from privacy advocates back in October when it was discovered both carriers were using a Unique Identifier Header (UIDH) to track its customers. Unlike regular cookies, which can be deleted by users, a UIDH cannot be deleted and is used primarily for targeted advertising purposes. Since there was no option to disable the UIDH by the customers, they have been dubbed “supercookies” by critics.

Feeling the heat from a growing chorus of critics, AT&T decided to bail on supercookies in November. “It has been phased off our network,” said AT&T spokeswoman Emily Edmonds at the time. “We have completed testing of the numeric code that would be part of any new mobile Relevant Advertising program we may launch.”
