If you’re looking to pick up a smartwatch today, the selection is vast, but the OS’s are limited. Apple and Android are the two main players, and the latter obviously has many more smartwatches out in the wild. Android Wear may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but Google has just rolled out an Android Wear update that’s bringing some cool new features to the forefront.
Apple loves to take shots at Google and Google certainly gives as good as it gets when it comes to the never ending battle of Android vs. iOS. Apple dropped the Apple Watch today, and Google released a short little Android promo. The Cupertino company also released iOS 8.2, and not long after Google officially announced the Android 5.1 release.
Before there was Android, Google was mainly known as the place where you go to search for things. Since Android has taken off, many other project have come to light, and one of them involves Google Wireless service. A new report suggests it’s coming sooner than we thought, but that only a select group of users will be able to use it at launch.
It’s early in the year, but we’ve already covered a lot of ground in the smartphone department. That said, there are several devices we haven’t discussed often like the upcoming iPhone 7 or this year’s lineup of Nexus devices. We are going to talk about the latter for the second time in as many days as a new Nexus 2015 rumor has hit the net.
Whether you’re looking forward to it or cringing at the memory of devices like the Virtual Boy, Virtual Reality is making a comeback in a big way. We’ve discussed several types of VR setups, and a new one may be the most interesting as it’s going to bring a lot of new users into the fold. Mattel is going VR, and they’ve partnered with Google for the upcoming View-Master VR kit.
Even Android fans can admit that Apple has put out some catchy commercials over the years. We’ve slowly started to see Android commercials get better, and the latest one may be the best one yet… or at least the cutest. It’s a heartwarming commercial with a surprise cast and a very familiar ditty that Disney fans may recognize.
