apple watch preorderThinking about pre-ordering the Apple Watch? You can do so starting on the 10th of April but here’s the kicker, according to a report apparently pre-ordering the Apple Watch will have some limitations, such as users being unable to choose the band/case combination of their Apple Watch.

Basically what this means is that Apple will have cases/band combinations available on their website, but if for some reason you want to choose your own case and band combination, that will not be possible during the pre-order phase. It is expected that perhaps later on more customizability will be unlocked, but there is a good chance that the rumors about supply constraints might have to do with Apple trying to keep the combinations to a minimum at the start.

BlackBerry-LogoWhile BlackBerry used to be the darling of the mobile phone industry with its QWERTY keyboard smartphones, its exclusive BBM service, and its ability to send secure emails, things certainly aren’t looking up for the Canadian company. The company had recently announced their Q4 figures and it looks like things aren’t going so well.

According to the numbers, BlackBerry has managed to sell 1.6 million smartphones in Q4 alone. To the layman these are a lot of phones, but compared to the same period last year, it represents a rather steep decline. That same period last year saw BlackBerry sell 3.4 million smartphones, so to see it drop to 1.6 million is a bit disheartening.

With the popularity of the Halo franchise spanning many years, we’re sure gamers are looking forward to the next installment – Halo 5: Guardians. Turns out that gamers will have to wait a little bit more as the official date has been set for the 27th of October, giving gamers a little over half a year of waiting before they can get their hands on it.

The game was announced early last year and was pegged for a release in the fall of 2015, so safe to say that it looks like things are moving along as scheduled. Previously it had been speculated that Microsoft would choose to release Halo 5: Guardians in November of 2015 as Halo games have typically been released at that time.

3D printing is awesome as it has given us a ton of cool projects, like 3D printing an old Honda motorcycle and recently, a man from New Zealand managed to 3D print a tiny drill that works. Speaking of tiny 3D printed objects, Formi Lab’s Michael Curry has recently decided to 3D print a tiny television, which when combined with a tiny display will actually work.

A couple of days ago we reported that thanks to Unity developer Erik Roystan, he managed to get the classic Super Mario 64 up and running in web browsers through the use of the Unity engine. It also helped to boost the graphics quality of the game, which is rather old, making it look like it is a relatively new game released for one of Nintendo’s current consoles.

Now with Nintendo talking about making games for mobile devices, how would a game like Super Mario 64 run on a smartphone? James Fletcher from Mobot decided to see what that would be like and basically converted Roystan’s Super Mario 64’s Unity project into an iPhone project, throwing in some virtual controls in the process.

sodastreamThe idea behind SodaStream and their machines is to make carbonated water, which in turn makes it less “boring” to drink and can also allow home users to whip up different types of soda flavors by adding a bit of flavored syrup to the carbonated water. It’s also a lot easier than having to continuously buy soda water/tonic.

However if there was one limitation it was the fact that the SodaStreams could only carbonate water, but the company has decided to change that with the launch of the SodaStream MIX. This device is expected to debut at the Milan Salone del Mobile next week and is apparently capable of carbonating just about any liquid, or so the company claims.

From time to time, we all suffer from stress whether it be work-related or personal, and if you were looking for a way to better manage that stress, perhaps the Emvio smartwatch might be a wearable you could be interested in. According to its creators, they have dubbed it as the first watch that has the ability to monitor your stress levels in real time.

How it works is that it has the ability to measure your pulse rate to determine on a scale of 1-10 how stressed you are feeling. The levels can be displayed on the smartwatch’s display itself so that users won’t have to turn to their smartphone to get more information. It will also only display at a press of a button so that your stress levels won’t be shown to the rest of the world. Read full post →Emvio Smartwatch Can Detect And Manage Your Stress Levels

apple watchThinking about getting yourself an Apple Watch but you’re unsure as to which model to get or which band combination would look best? We suppose one could always hop on over to the Apple retail store and check out the various combinations, but if you’d rather not make the trip, you can do so virtually.

The folks at 9to5Mac have heard from their sources that Apple is said to be planning a virtual try-on and personalized setup process for the Apple Watch. Basically what this means is that prior to your purchase, you will be able to chat with an Apple Online Store representative who will try-on and model the different Apple Watch collections and bands combinations for you to see what it could look like.

apple-watch-editionThe Apple Watch Edition is Apple’s highest-end wearable and is expected to be priced starting at $10,000 and will go up to as high as $17,000.

htc_one_e9pThe HTC One E9+ has been making its rounds as of late and is said to be an upcoming handset by the company. For those who are still skeptical about the authenticity of the handset and its leaks, you can rest assured that it is very real as HTC China has recently created a page dedicated to the upcoming handset along with photos of the device, pretty much confirming everything that we have seen so far.

HTC has scheduled an event for the 8th of April where the HTC One M9+ is expected to be announced, so there is a good chance we could hear more about the HTC One E9+ too, although if anything the launch of the website seems to have pretty much ruined the surprise for everyone, unless of course they weren’t planning on announcing the device at the event.
