Is The Keyboard Dying?

Smartphones, smartwatches and many other smart devices are spreading all across the world. The decline of the PC-era is happening very gradually. And it may happen that the messaging apps that we use in our day to day life will finally eat our keyboards.

Microsoft Band Review

Microsoft took its first step in the fitness department with its Band (a smartwatch-cum-fitness tracker). I was searching for a good great review and I found this one.

The Band collects tons of data about me but it doesn’t know what to do with it next.

The author’s review is straightforward and up to the point. The Band has many pros (and cons too) but since it’s Microsoft’s first step in fitness tracking, there is a lot of ground for it to improve. But it’s worth considering how will it give competition to the already existing perfect fitness trackers.

The Moto 360

The full review of Moto 360. You’ll love it (except the battery life).

Wearable tech

The advent of computers started with the basic calculator and has now encompassed the whole world. The computers in the olden times used to be large in size. They usually used up a whole room and compulsorily required an AC to keep the (very inefficient processors) cool.

Overtime, the computers got smaller and smaller in size until they could fit your hands. Yes, the smartphones. The smartphones are quite small compared to previous huge computers and could do all types of works. From basic calculations to connecting yourself to the internet and other people.

Now the trend has gotten even smaller. The smartwatches that could fit in your wrist like a wristwatch. It all started with the Pebble smartwatch. Then big companies started undertaking the same trend.

The latest smartwatches like the LG G Watch and the Moto 360 which were showed off on the Google I/O 2014 can do all sorts of things. Notify you about incoming texts & calls, even respond to them, tell you the weather, control the music in your headphones, search on Google and many other things.

But the question arises, DO WE REALLY NEED THESE TINY TECHNOLOGIES?

The answer is simply your opinion. But my personal opinion is, “Why is there a need to invest in the smartwatches when one can just get a smartphone instead”. A smartphone has more power, more capabilities and can do things smartwatches can’t do. The price of the Moto 360 will be around $300 to $400 which is almost of a good smartphone.

You could give it a thought and see how useful will it be to you. It surely shows us how much advanced we are in terms of technology. The wearable technology is great. I mean it is handy to have incoming texts straight on your watch. But it is also handy to slip your hands into your pocket reach your smartphone.

The major problem that I saw with these smartwatches was their battery life. They could barely run for more than 2 days though Google has done a great job designing the dedicated smartwatch OS ‘Android Wear’ which is smartwatch optimised.

The most handy feature of these tiny devices is that they do have a fitness tracker as well as a heartbeat sensor packed into them to monitor your fitness regimes.

The advancement of science in wearable technology is very notable. Even though I am not so lazy a person to use a watch instead of a phone, I would consider buying a smartwatch in the (far) future when they would become more efficient. Maybe quantum technology can do the trick. Maybe we’ll see smartwatches in the future instead of normal wristwatches. Wristwatches would become an history then. Let’s see.

Android Wear Wars: The Moto 360, LG G Watch And Samsung Gear Live Compared

Best Android Wear. I loved the Moto 360. What about you?

TechCrunch

[tc_5min code=”518292163″]

The first Android Wear smartwatches aren’t yet available to consumers (though two start shipping July 7), but already we’ve managed to enjoy some time with each of the new devices, and while we can’t speak to things like battery life and durability over time, we can share impressions on the relative merits of each so far. Is the Moto 360, the LG G Watch, or the Samsung Gear Live the right smartwatch for your wrist? Read on to find out, and check out our video comparison above.

First things first: If you’re looking for a distinct advantage from any of these in terms of software or functionality, you’re not really going to find any – Google has clearly designed Android Wear to look and feel the same on any device it powers, regardless of manufacturer. At least in these early days, it seems to want to avoid the…
