    It’s not pretty and circular, like the fall 2015-released Time Round, and it can’t monitor your heart rate, which is probably the key selling point of the recently unveiled, crowd-funded, and soon-to-be-commercialized Pebble 2 and Time 2. Nonetheless, last year’s Pebble Time Steel arguably has enough going for it to warrant its $200 MSRP. In fact, the premium-built, “marine grade” stainless steel chassis and bezel-sporting smartwatch has presumably been selling so well lately that a few configurations are currently listed as out of stock on the manufacturer’s US website. ...

    While we’re certainly a little disappointed to see Pebble once again ask its fans for financial support before commercially launching a new product (or three), the advancements of the Pebble 2 and Time 2 smartwatches guarantee them a spot in the same league as most Android Wear heavyweights, making everything else feel irrelevant. Both the Pebble Time 2 and Pebble 2 feature 24/7 heart rate monitors, built-in microphones, activity and sleep tracking, water resistance up to 30 meters, and multi-day battery life. Oddly enough, although the Pebble 2 seems to sport the smaller, more frugal ...

    Although Pebble’s hardcore fans seemed to relish the opportunity of once again throwing their weight behind a smartwatch prototype on Kickstarter early last year, many neutral observers of the wearable phenomenon felt the fundraiser was unnecessary and even somewhat tasteless. The Time and Time Steel should really have been developed, mass-produced and distributed without the help of the actual buyers, and the “normal” release of the Time Round in the fall of 2015 did little to fix Pebble’s strategic mistake. It’s all about perception at the end of the day, and after so much time ...

    The little startup that essentially laid the foundation for your Apple Watch, Samsung Gear S timepieces, Android Wear gizmos and so on appears to be going through an identity crisis of sorts, as many rivals undercut its prices and build quality, with substantial layoffs prompted by flagging sales and profits. Ironically, the healthy future of Pebble might be in the hands of not just its own engineers and developers, but software and especially hardware partners working on ways to squeeze the last possible drop of functionality and productivity out of the Time and Time Steel. Partners like ...

    Technology is such an integral part of everyone’s life nowadays that many people believe it’s the CEOs of companies like Apple, Google or Facebook who run the world as opposed to major political leaders. According to Time magazine however, there’s plenty of room on a roster of the 100 most influential individuals around the globe for nation presidents, businessmen, actors, musicians, athletes, doctors, scientists, and even fashion icons. As always, the Time 100 list is as diverse as it is bizarre and controversial this year, including names like Caitlyn Jenner, Pope Francis, Angela ...

    A while back, Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak said about Windows Phone that "I’m kinda shocked how every screen is much more beautiful." So we thought it would be fun to look at a few popular iOS apps and how their Windows Phone counterparts compare in the looks department. The difference in which is more beautiful has a lot to do with the design philosophies of each platform and most of the apps tend to conform to those policies. Apple's iOS app language generally keeps all the app content on one screen with square buttons along the bottom to navigate between sections while kinetic ...
