    The Pod Pro Will Keep Both Your Apple Watch And iPhone Charged

    Since Apple wants us to put their hardware all over our body, it’s becoming harder and harder to remember to charge everything. The number one reason that I don’t wear my Apple Watch is that the battery is dead. Have no fear, third-party device creators are here. Nomad has announced its battery pack called “Pod Pro” that supports charging for the Apple Watch and iPhone… Read More

    With flashier announcements at this year’s WWDC, such as Apple Music or more hardcore developer news on the iOS 9 front, it’s easy to lose sight of a real game changer: watchOS 2, which is slated for release September 16. Would it be crazy to think this new OS could really make that big of an impact? Read More

    The Stylus Still Rules The Galaxy Note 5

    The concept Galaxy Note 5 is at once a thing of genius and a nod to a benighted world before the modern touchscreen. Born in the swamps of the resistive LCD, the stylus lurched onto dry land and lives on as a reminder of our history.

    The OnePlus 2 Returns With Another Indie Phone Powerhouse

    If you’ve been out of the Android game for a while you’d be hard-pressed to understand why people love OnePlus so much. These phones, conceived by the folks who initially launched Oppo, are aimed at the Android connoisseur, if such a person exists, and they have a rabid fanbase of folks who clamor for units with every launch.

    Android Wear Device Supports iOS, Per This Pre-Order Page

    Apple Watch not for you? The Amazon preorder page for the Huawei Watch states that the device will support iOS. Now, at this point, it’s unclear if this is a typo or unreleased information — let’s hope it’s the latter.

    Apple has lost a challenge in the German court system that sought to overturn an earlier ruling, which voided its patent for ‘swipe to unlock’ in Europe.
