Apple is all about marketing its products well, and it usually does a good job at that. In line with the tradition, the Cupertino company today has released not one, not two, but four new ads for the Apple Watch through its YouTube channel that showcase the wearable being used in a number of situations, including traveling, working out, interacting with family etc. Before we go into the detail of these ads, allow me to say that for a company that usually makes pretty good ads, Apple has left me disappointed with these.

These days, it seems it has become sort of a trend in the tech world for companies that don’t usually make smartphones to jump onto the bandwagon, with Kodak being a prime example here. This is further made easy thanks to the open-source nature of Android. Not wanting to stay behind, Marshall – the company that made a name for itself in the world of guitar amps – has announced its own Android smartphone. What’s unique about this device is the fact that it’s aimed directly at audiophiles, with music-focused features that will put to shame even the top of the line flagships of today (but only in the music department, of course).

Android is a pretty great platform, but it isn’t truly built for everyday desktop computing, or at least that’s what we’ve been led to believe. However, it is a platform with massive customization potential, and that’s the idea behind Jide Tech’s new device, dubbed the “first true Android PC.”

With iOS 8, Apple, for the first time, allowed third-party keyboards on its platform that worked system-wide, not just within specific apps. In the new days of this freedom, we saw almost all major players from the Android ecosystem pop up on the iTunes App Store as well, and then (naturally) the trend dwindled down. Today, however, we see somewhat of a revival, with Disney releasing its ‘Disney Gif’ custom keyboard for iPhone and iPad, which allows sharing of Disney and Pixar themed GIFs directly from the keyboard into the app of your choice.

Apple took on the big names in the music streaming space when it announced Apple Music at WWDC this year. However, that doesn’t mean that Apple’s competitors in this space will just sit and not do anything. Today, the Mountain View company announced its free music streaming tier to the already-rich Google Play Music, which will basically serve as a curated, ad-supported radio station selection for non-subscribers (read: free users) of the search giant’s music offering. The new free tier of Google Play Music is all set to take on Apple’s iTunes Radio service, and the upcoming Beats 1 radio station, which is going to be a part of Apple Music.

At Google I/O this past week, the search giant made it abundantly clear that it’s serious about pushing ahead with fingerprint sensor technology, so much so that Android M – the next iteration of Google’s open-source smartphone and tablet operating system – will carry a native fingerprint API that manufacturers can make use of for better integration. To drive the point home, the company showcased a video that exhibits how fingerprint-enabled devices will work on Android M, once the feature is fully implemented. What we found interesting however, was the fact that amid the video, the lady pulls out what appears to be a Nexus 5 carrying a fingerprint sensor.

A week ago, we told you that Apple’s latest update to the Watch OS, which pushed the version number to 1.0.1, displayed erratic behavior with respect to heart rate monitoring. Well, now Apple has clarified that this, in fact, isn’t a bug, but rather desired behavior in the new version of the Apple Watch OS.

Thursday, May 28, Google took to stage at the I/O 2015 conference to unveil some upcoming new features for Android wear, including WiFi support, always-on apps, new launcher, emojis, wrist gestures, glance-able apps, and much more. All in the hopes of making Android Wear much better than what it is already. And all that you’d find […]

At Google I/O 2015, the Mountain View search giant introduced Android Pay – a new feature for Android smartphones that allows you to make payments right from your device, using a combination of Google’s integration with a number of stores, payment processors, and your existing credit/debit cards etc. Sounds familiar? That’s because it is. Allow me to clarify this from the very beginning (and my displeasure with this fact): Android Pay is awfully similar to Apple Pay, and not just by name but in functionality as well. Let’s take a quick look at all that’s on offer.

A couple of months ago, Twitter attempted to change the game once more with the launch of Periscope for iOS – an app that allows users to stream live video to their followers. At that time, people just weren’t sure how long it would take for the app to reach Android, and whether it would follow a quick launch. In case you were among those wondering, Tuesday saw Periscope coming to Android, exactly two months after the original launch for the iPhone.

Here’s how to boot your PC into safe mode on Windows 8.1. Until Windows 8, getting into Safe Mode was something as simple as hitting F8 (or Shift + F8) while the OS was loading, and bingo! There you have it – not in Windows 8.1, however.
