Would Gear Live and G Watch Make You Buy A Smartwatch?

Wearable devices are the next big thing. And some experts say smartwatches will step up the game .  But so far, we have seen poor reception from consumers.  Globally, only 1.9 million units were sold in 2013. Could the recent release of Samsung’s Gear Live and LG’s G Watch change that fate?

7 Reasons Why LG G3 Is A Killer Smartphone

Move over  Samsung S5  and HTC One M8,  LG G3 is here. And iHaters will consider this. G3 is  the third iteration of the G series. Here are some seven reasons why this LG’s latest flagship is a killer smartphone.

  1. It has  the highest resolution in any smartphone available so far. Expect very clear, sharp and vibrant display with 2560×1440 Quad HD resolution with an eye popping 538 pixels per inch. That’s just pixel overload.
  2. G3 boasts a cutting edge 5.5-inch massive screen. Yeah, you could say it is a phablet. But it still looks great with its sleek design
  3. Watching a video is a delight with its thin bezel at 3.05mm on either side of the screen. Compare that to Samsung S5 with 4.05mm screen
  4. It is the first smartphone to introduce laser Auto Focus which enables capturing a photo in an instant. 13MP rear camera. 2.1 MP front camera perfect for selfie. Plus dual LED flash and optical image stabilization (OIS), which helps it to take better photos in low light and video without too much shakiness
  5. Removable Battery. Wireless charging. Superior battery life with 3,000mAh. So its ok to watch or record a 4k video
  6. Curved back for easy grip. The casing is plastic but looks elegant with its faux-metallic look. Notice the rear button layout? Just nice.
  7. Louder and clearer audio sound with 1W Speaker and boost AMP

Scary App Found on Samsung Galaxy S4

That’s a cheesy title isn’t it? As I was reading an email on my Samsung Galaxy S4, it suddenly froze and restarted.

What I usually do when that happens is look for the application that’s responsible for the crash, I checked all the installed apps and surprised to find the Mobile tracker Version 1.0. It seems like a factory default process, While I look at the permissions I was more surprised at what it can do.

Too Bad For A.I. Watch, Smartwatch Craze Is Fading Out

After a huge disappointment with Samsung Galaxy Gear, it seems that the smartwatch craze is fading out. This is evident in the latest fundraising effort of another smartwatch wannabe A.I.Watch. The crowdfunding, through Indiegogo, started last September 25, 2013 and so far it has achieved barely $10,000. The project aims to raise at least $100,000.00.

Like Omate TrueSmartwatch, A.I. watch claims to be fully functional on its own without having to be paired with a smartphone. It can make calls and access a number of apps with Android 4.0.4 OS ( Ice cream Sandwich ). If the fundraising goes well, the device will sell for $279,with shipping to start in December 2013. The smartwatch is developed by Swissco Ltd with Damien Douk as its creator and designer.

How to Untag Yourself in a Facebook Photo From Your Mobile Phone

Have you ever been tagged by a not so close friend in a non-sense Facebook picture or photo?

Well, I was recently and what’s annoying about it is that you are in no way interested or cannot relate or at least makes no sense, because you are not in that photo or it has nothing to do with you and that photo get’s a lot of comments and updates, every single second for the next couple of days.

This is one way of spamming Facebook to get attention and when you try to look of a way to untag yourself using the mobile application because that’s what you use all the time rather than your laptop or desktop, there is just no way to do it.
