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.

SOLD: Lenovo to acquire Motorola Mobility from Google
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:47 CET under 04 - Android News

As announced yesterday evening by Google CEO Larry Page himself, Google and Lenovo signed an agreement to sell Motorola for US$ 2.91 billion. As this is an important move for Android users everywhere, Page explained in Google' own blog that Google acquired Motorola back in 2012 to help "supercharge the Android ecosystem by creating a stronger patent portfolio for Google and great smartphones for users". According to Page, Motorola has done a tremendous job reinventing the company over the past 19 months by focusing on building a smaller number of great (and great value) smartphones that consumers love. Both the Moto G and the Moto X are said to "doing really well" and Page is very excited about the smartphone lineup for 2014.

OVERRAN: Beats Music puts Registration of new Accounts on-hold
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:58 CET under 01 - General News

Following this week's launch of its streaming service, Beats Music sent out and E-Mail update last night where it explained that they "have been blown away by the love that made them the #1 Music App in the iTunes Store". However, due to the extremely high volume of interest in the Beats Music service, some users are experiencing issues; something I've also read about on Twitter. While Beats Music said that most people are unaffected, its priority is to give everyone a great experience and the company seems to have expected such an issue and has therefore been prepared. Because of the weak experience some users faced, Beats Music is now going to hold off on letting more people in while the company is working on a resolution.
