LG_WATCH_URBANE_LIFESTYLE_04Last week we reported that LG had announced the availability of the LG Watch Urbane. The smartwatch was to be first launched in its home country of South Korea last week and is expected to make its way to other markets by the end of the month. The good news is that if you were wondering when the watch would make its way stateside, come 28th of April might be the date you’ll want to mark down on your calendar.

There’s no way to verify if this information is accurate so we guess we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled to see if it pans out.

kids_games1If you were to look at families these days, it is becoming increasingly common to see parents use devices like their smartphones or tablets to entertain their children with. We suppose this is largely thanks to the fact that a single device can do so many things, such as play games, watch videos, listen to audio books, and so on.

This is why it isn’t surprising to find that according to a new study presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies annual meeting (via Time) has revealed that more than a third of kids in the US who are under the age of one have experienced what it’s like to use a mobile device, such as a smartphone or a tablet. That number, to be more specific, is a whopping 36%. Read full post →More Than 30% Of Kids Under One Have Used A Mobile Device


facebook_safetyEarlier we had reported that Apple had launched a donations feature through its iTunes Store in which users could choose to donate varying sums of money to the American Red Cross, and where 100% of the donations would go towards the Nepal earthquake relief. It also looks like Facebook and Google have recently launched initiatives of their own.

In the case of Facebook, they have activated their Safety Check feature for the region of Nepal.  For those unfamiliar with the feature, basically it was launched last year with the intention of allowing those in disaster areas to let their friends and family know they are safe. This will be based on your location and Facebook will send users a notification to indicate their safe status, after which family members and friends can launch the tool and check up on their loved ones.

jay-z-tidalTidal was a relatively unknown music streaming service even before hip hop mogul Jay-Z got his hands on it, but it looks like even after he did, the app enjoyed a brief bout of popularity and publicity before it started to fizzle and with it dropping out of the top 700 app ranking on the iTunes App Store.

So is Tidal doomed? Jay-Z does not seem to think so and has recently gone on a rant on Twitter in which he ardently defended the streaming service. For starters he believes that the service just needs some time to grow, and that even companies such as Spotify took many years to get to where they are today.

itunes_nepal_earthquakeFor those who have been following the news, it was just recently that Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake where it has been estimated that over 2,400 people have been killed in the process. Safe to say that this is very sad news, although thankfully it seems that governments around the world and NGOs have rallied to try and bring as much relief as they can to the area.

Apple is also looking to do their part as a feature has been launched in the iTunes Store in which users will be able to donate money to the American Red Cross who will then use those funds in their relief efforts. As you can see in the screenshot above, users will be able to choose amounts as low as $5 and go up to $200, 100% of which will be going to the Red Cross.

Consumer Reports is a name you might have heard of in the past with regards to testing electronic products. A few years ago, the company refused to recommend the iPhone 4 due to its antennagate scandal, although last year the company did come to Apple’s defense with regards to bendgate.

Well it looks like they are back and this time round, they have decided to put the Apple Watch through a rather scientific torture test. Now we’ve seen other tests conducted on the Apple Watch but if you’re looking for a more precise and scientific method of testing, then Consumer Reports’ video should not disappoint.

silent_hills_2Over the weekend it was reported that the Silent Hill’s teaser game PT would be pulled from the PlayStation Store, this led to speculation that it could also be spelling the end of the upcoming title and if comments made by some of the major players involved in making the game are true, it certainly looks like the game has been cancelled.

This supposedly came about when the game’s co-director Guillermo del Toro told attendees at a recent film festival in San Francisco that the game wasn’t going to happen. This was retweeted by del Toro’s assistant and was later picked up and confirmed by Norman Reedus who was supposed to portray the game’s protagonist (and also of the Walking Dead fame).
