coffee app 640x418Our smartwatches are great devices to get our notifications on without having to whip out our phone, which in some situations might not be ideal or polite (like when in a meeting or on a date). However replying to messages via our smartwatch is less than ideal due to its small screen, and while there are keyboards that help facilitate typing on a small screen, it’s just not that fun.

Well for those who want to reply to messages via their Android Wear device without having to spend time typing out messages, then perhaps the Coffee SMS app for Android Wear could be for you. The app basically comes with hundreds of preloaded messages that users can scroll through, tap, and send, all from the comfort of their wrist.

WP 20141204 10 19 19 Raw 640x359As you might have heard, Microsoft has recently begun to push out the Lumia Denim update to its Lumia series of devices. This is a particularly important update especially if you love taking photos on your Lumia device and was hoping that Microsoft could make some improvements in that area.

Well you’re in luck because Microsoft has and in their latest Lumia Conversations post, Microsoft shares some photos snapped with the Lumia 930 after the update. Personally we wish Microsoft would have shared some before and after photos, but either way these new photos taken post-update do look good.

Guitarists have been using effects pedals in their setups for years, whether it be live or recording in a studio, these pedals are pretty much an integral part of a guitar player’s setup. For the most part these effects are controlled via foot pedals or by a guitar tech at the back, but if you’d rather have the effects closer to home, Ibanez might have something for you.

About a few months ago, guitar manufacturer Ibanez announced the RGKP6 Kaoss guitar. This guitar will feature a special cutout in which a Korg mini Kaoss pad 2S can be installed, hence the name as this appears to be a collaboration between Korg and Ibanez. The Kaoss pad comes with 100 effects that users can tweak and manipulate using their fingers and given its positioning, should not really interfere with a guitarist’s strumming or picking process.

jins memeIf there is one drawback to Google Glass it is that it is obvious. We’re sure many people will find it hard to ignore the fact that you have a tiny computer module strapped to your glasses. Some people have taken exception to this as they believe that you are constantly recording/photographing them, so perhaps a more subtle solution is needed.

Well over in Japan they have the JINS MEME smart glass which as you can see in the image above, is a lot more conspicuous. The MEME glass was previously only available in Japan but the good news is that it looks like JINS will be bringing their MEME eyewear stateside and will also be giving a demonstration at CES 2015.

Xperia E4 vs Xperia Z1 CompactThanks to a series of leaked photos from about a week ago, we managed to catch a glimpse of what appeared to be the upcoming Sony Xperia E4, the successor to 2013’s Xperia E3. Based on the photos it looks like Sony went with a new design for the Xperia E4, but given that none of this is official it’s hard to tell if they’re the real deal.

That being said if you’re looking for more “evidence” that the photos are the real deal, Polish website Teleguru (via Gizmobolt) has actually uploaded an entire hands-on review of the device. Now we can’t be sure if this means that the handset was released in Poland or if Teleguru got their hands on a leaked copy of the handset or maybe they just broke the embargo, but there are plenty of photos to enjoy.

nexus 6 review display 8 640x426One of the features that was supposed to make it into the Nexus 6 was the double tap to wake up feature. Basically this allows users to double tap the screen of their Nexus 6 in order to wake it up from sleep mode, versus pressing the button on the side which sometimes can lead to the button wearing out, much like the home button on iOS devices.

Well safe to say the feature did not make its way onto the phone and the good news is that if you wanted it, XDA developer qwerp_ has managed to come up with a solution that does not require users to root their phone. However it does require users to have an unlocked Nexus 6 bootloader, which to be fair is a little easier to achieve than root.
