Wacom’s Cintiq Companion 2 – the graphics tablet that arrived at the FCC in January this year, happens to be a device which is able to hook up to either a Windows or Mac computer, and while connected, is capable of helping the talented digital artist draw with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity.

blue linkEarlier this year at CES 2015, Hyundai showed off an upcoming Android Wear app called Blue Link. The idea of the app was to allow Android Wear owners who also happened to own Hyundai cars to be able to unlock their cars remotely via their wrists. The good news is that if Blue Link is an app you’ve been looking forward to, it is finally here.

The car maker has officially released the updated Blue Link app and you can go ahead and grab it for yourself via the Google Play Store and it should work with your Android Wear device. The app will allow users to lock/unlock their car doors, start or stop their car engines, flash lights, or honk the horn. It will be compatible with cars as old as the 2012 Hyundai Sonata.

The company’s technology involves an optical filter compatible with most smartphone camera lenses and an accompanying software.

Earlier builds of iOS were often compared to that of earlier Android builds where they seemed faster and more responsive. However Android has since managed to catch up but could the same be said for iOS? While iOS 8 is Apple’s latest operating system, it seems that it is actually slower than earlier builds of iOS.

Omni developer William Van Hecke has recently put together a video in which iOS 8 running on a new iPhone 6 is compared to an older iPhone with older hardware running on iOS 3. In iOS 8 as you will notice in the video above, it seems that it takes longer for the OS to recognize inputs versus iOS 3 when input is registered the moment the finger touches the screen.
