Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! 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...
New Official Update for European HD2 – T-Mobile USA Users, Do Not Install This!
Not to long ago, there was a leak of a new official rom for the T-Mobile USA HD2. So as not to forget about the European counterpart of this wonderful device, hTC has just released an official update for the OS, as pointed out by XDA member MuratNL. hTC promises several updates, particularly in the performance department, including better handling of the processor by the system overall, which would make the whole experience more “enjoyable”. As with any new base, this probably comes loaded with updated drivers and maybe even a few updates to some hTC apps.
The only warning to be heed in here is to not flash this on your device if you have a T-Mobile USA HD2 variant. hTC describes it as “undesired” results. I call that possibly bricking the device. The update process is simple though as with any rom flash to a WM device. However, if you are not certain on how to do this, there are several guides available floating around in the forums.
Just Spotted on HTC European site:

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...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.
