INVITATION: Samsung announces UNPACKED5 Event for Barcelona - Most likely to announce the Galaxy S5
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:56 CET under 04 - Android News

There were a couple of information floating around the past weeks that Samsung might not show or announce its next Android hero smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5, in Barcelona, during this month's Mobile World Congress. Other sources have spoken from dedicated events in the UK or the US. I've saved you and me from all these rumors because a rumor is just a rumor and in this case they weren't even good one. Nevertheless, this morning Samsung sent out an invitation for its "UNPACKED5" event in Barcelona; and on top it also made the event public on Twitter. Following the previous Unpacked events, we can expect something great and the number 5 might indicate that Samsung will indeed unveil the Galaxy S5.

OPENED: Chromecast now Open to Developers with Google Cast SDK
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:04 CET under 04 - Android News

It took Google a little bit longer to open its wallet garden but it finally happened. As announced today on the Google Developers Blog, starting today, the Google Cast SDK is available for developing and publishing Google Cast-ready apps. This means that Google Chromecast users can expect soon many more apps which will allow to stream from an Android or iOS device to the big screen living room TV. As Google said, the Google Cast SDK is simple to integrate because there's no need to write a new app; but it allows to just incorporate the SDK into existing mobile and and even web apps to bring the content to the TV. The SDK comes with many options for displaying content on Chromecast.

SMARTWATCH: Pebble to Launch its Appstore Today - iOS comes First with Android to Follow soon [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:15 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

As Pebble announced on Friday via Twitter and confirmed again this morning, the smartwatch pioneer will launch today its long awaited appstore. Going live today at 10am PT, iOS users will get the update first while Android users have to wait a little bit longer. Nevertheless, Pebble also said it will make a Beta APK available to developers on Monday as well. Until now, Pebble users had to discover and download apps and watchfaces through several awesome third party resources like MyPebbleFaces. The Pebble appstore changes all this by providing a simple one-stop-shopping solution to discover, manage and install apps and watchfaces. The appstore features separate areas for apps and watchfaces, with six app categories.

UTILITY: Pebble Locker for Android keeps Smartphones Protected while not Connected
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:03 CET under 04 - Android News

While there are a couple of pretty good Bluetooth and WiFi solutions out there, which keeps your Android smartphone protected while not connected to a Bluetooth device or WiFi nearby, these solutions disable the PIN or password entry on the smartphone while connected. That's pretty handy, let's say while you are in the car - connected to your hands-free kit, or at home - connected to your W-LAN. However, a very interesting utility - really useful for Pebble smartwatch users - is Pebble Locker. And since Pebble is shipping its Pebble Steel since this week to many new Pebble users, I don't want to forget to recommend this app for your convenience. Unlike other solutions, Pebble Locker is free - if you only use it with your Pebble smartwatch but it also offers general Bluetooth and WiFi options through an in-app purchase.

KICKSTARTER: Able-HD to Kickstart the Able-HD Plus - Lightweight and Paper-thin Full HD LED Monitor
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:28 CET under 01 - General News

Last night I received a press release of an upcoming Kickstarter campaign which sounds interesting. Top 50 Kickstarter entrepreneur Nell Harton, who's earlier campaign exceeded the goal by 2000 %, is looking for further funding to make the lightweight and paper-thin Able-HD Plus monitor a truth. The Able-HD Plus monitor allows users to take the experience and enhanced productivity of a multi-monitor system with them wherever they go. The 15" or 17" 1080p Full HD display is said to weight around 2 pounds / 0.9 Kg only and is less than a third as thick as a standard HD monitor and fits easily in a backpack or briefcase. A multi-port, detachable adapter board is said to be compatible with laptops, smartphones, Xbox, Ouya, Pi, Kano and other devices, and comes complete with Audio in/out, HDMI, VGA, and DVI plugs.
