The Smartwatch Wars and An App for Those Embarrassing FB PicsPosted: August 6, 2013
The smartwatch wars are apparently heating up…we’ve noted that Apple has trademarked iWatch in an number of countries, and now techcrunch.com has discovered that Samsung has filed for Galaxy Gear for watches, wristbands, and bangles. Will they be self-contained or talk to your smartphone…and what about battery life? Mashable.com has a story about an app called secret dot li, which could save your bacon if you’re looking for a job or to switch jobs. It scrambles pixels on the photos you upload to Facebook except to friends you choose. You can also set it to delete those pics after a period of time. 9to5mac.com points to emerging markets and not the US as the real reason behind a cheaper, plastic iPhone. Apple’s smartphone has dropped to 7th place in China.
