Asus Transformer Prime Update Rolling Out, First Impressions Seem Positive

Transformer Prime users rejoice: a new update is rolling out which brings some much needed bug fixes, especially to hardware functions such as WiFi and Bluetooth. Many users have been complaining about low WiFi reception and general WiFi problems when Bluetooth is enabled. Together with the WiFi and Bluetooth packages, the kernel received an update too, bringing its version number to 2.6.39. Even though some users don’t really seem to notice any WiFi performance improvement, a lot of people do get better WiFi reception.

Since the update, one thing all users agree with is the fact that the overall performance of the Transformer Prime has gotten much better. The lockup and reboot issues seem to be fixed, games and apps not only load quicker but also seem to run much more stable. Skeptical readers saying this has something to do with the placebo effect are wrong – XDA Member Darkseider brought some interesting facts to the table: benchmark results are 5% to 8% better than before the update.

One downside is the fact that the Ad-Hoc tethering bug is still not fixed – though a fix for that problem has been created by XDA Senior Member Darkseider. If your Prime is rooted, make sure you use Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper to keep getting the best out of it.  Visit the Transformer Prime Update thread to join the discussion or read other people’s feedback.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
