LG / Google Smartwatch Specs Leaked

A few days ago, we talked about Google’s plans to release a wearables SDK in the coming few weeks. But as it turns out, the Mountain View giant may be working on a bit more than an SDK release. Rather, the company is developing its own self-branded smartwatch with LG as the manufacturer—that is, if leaks are to be believed.

The LG-sourced Google smartwatch will allegedly feature a 1.65″ IPS LCD running at a 280×280 resolution, half a gig of RAM, 4 gigs of storage, and a currently unknown processor. This info comes courtesy of Twitter leaker extraordinaire @evleaks. And with these specs, it’s safe to say that this is in direct competition with Samsung’s Galaxy Gear 2.

It’s nice to see some hardware specs even if it’s all just unverified, leaked info. But what’s on everyone’s mind isn’t the hardware—it’s the software. The UX/UI and how well such a device integrates with your current smartphone will make or break its success. We can’t wait to see more of what Google’s up to. 2014 is truly shaping up to be the year of wearable tech, and it’s about time to see Google’s entrance into the field.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
