Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...
Install Windows 8 via USB on Various Devices
With Microsoft’s Windows 8 right around the corner, it’s only natural that interest is kicked into high gear. Two members of the XDA community, Recognized Developer Nullstring and Senior Member lseidman, have posted guides to help users install the latest version of Windows 8 onto their devices via a USB drive.
Nullstring posted a video guide that walks users through the process on a PC / laptop, as well as allowing for the OS to be dual booted along side Windows 7. Be warned the video is 46 minutes long and goes as far as analyzing boot speeds and setting up Administrator mode. XDA Senior Member lseidman has taken this entire process a step further and has provided an in-depth guide to installing either the 32 or 64 bit versions of Windows 8 on tablets and slates via USB drive as well. He too provides a video overview of the process, however, it currently only covers up to the point where the boot ISO is created.
Both of these guides are sure to be helpful to users looking to load Windows 8 on their respective devices, but who haven’t done so yet. So head over to Nullstring’s thread or Lseidman’s thread. Let the development commence.

This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
