With the launch of many smartwatches on the horizon, the pace at which rumours are flowing in is certainly not slowing down. Today we get more rumours about Apple upcoming iWatch, which will launch within the next couple of months – most likely in October.

Talks of two iWatch models have fluttered around since the beginning of the year, but no one really took them serious at the time. As happens with the tech industry, usually the closer we get to launch date, the more accurate rumours tend to be. According to a tipster familiar with the matter the two models will be dubbed the “Sports” and the “Designer.” (more…)

The cost of living in South Africa has certainly risen drastically in the last couple of years. With massive petrol price hikes, food inflation in the double digits and large electricity price increases from Eskom, the wallets are being kept in the pocket more regularly and we should all try and stave off unnecessary expenditure.

By saving electricity, we not only help our bank accounts but also the national electricity grid which is under extreme pressure in these cold winter months. The electricity price was hiked on 1 July again.

In conjunction with myPrepaid, we are bringing you the opportunity to WIN one of five R300 “prepaid” electricity vouchers. Find out how to enter the competition below. (more…)

We now get some more details, however.

diamond

Among the most sought after ‘rocks’ from our planet, diamonds have always had great value because of their scarcity and, to some at least, their beauty. The largest one we know about originating on our humbly sized planet is of course the Cullinan, which has an estimated value of around $2 billion and is 3,100 carats in size.

LG G Flex Review: Curved brilliance or gimmicky mess?

The LG G Flex was announced to a public that was already quite sceptic of curved smartphones, thanks to the bemusing design of the Samsung Galaxy Round, which is curved along the portrait orientation. Luckily, the G Flex is curved along the landscape viewing axis, which makes a lot more sense (for reasons we will get to later).

As the name suggests, it is also flexible. Not like rubber – you have to put some muscle into doing it. Bendable, foldable, flexible screens have long hovered on the horizon and LG wants to start making them a reality. Could this be the beginning of a new revolution in the smartphone industry or just another whim which will fade away soon?

Update: This article’s content has been updated since initial release.

The Sony Xperia Z1 launched only about 9 months after the original Xperia Z and a little more than 6 months later we have this – the Sony Xperia Z2. Some critics of Sony are saying that bringing new versions so regularly will alienate customers who have just bought the top-of-the-line Sony, but 6 months down the road it will be obsolete.

While we do get what they are saying, we have to disagree. You’ll notice that not much is changing from one version to the next. In fact, all Sony is doing is addressing some of the problems from each iteration. So why should we be excited about a new Sony that is about to hit the market?

Yo, the world’s simplest app, receives further funding

Yo

A few weeks ago, we reported on what we thought could possibly be the world’s simplest app. Yo, the single-function app basically does exactly what it’s name suggests; it let’s you say ‘yo’ to your friends.

And while the app was considered rather strange by many critics and tech journalists, Yo has just gone and given the finger to all it’s naysayers after it received a second round of funding – to the tune of $1.5 million.

Betaworks, a seed-stage VP firm that is based in New York City is one of the investors along with Mashable founder and CEO, Pete Cashmore.

But just what is it about Yo that makes people want to invest large amounts of money into it? (more…)
