Tory Burch for FitBit

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; the one thing that pulls  away from turning wearable devices into must-have items is, unfortunately, their look.

Let’s face it, most wearable devices, whether it’s a smart watch or fitness tracker, is, well, ugly. And considering the fact that its a wearable item (i.e on display all day) it is very important that it compliments your personal style. Or at the very least looks like something stylish.

This is why we always get excited when we come across wearable devices that have spent notably more time on the actual look of the device.

A few weeks ago, we reported on Google Glass’ collaboration with Diane Von Furstenberg, and, with just some help from the legendary designer, Google Glass was already looking a whole lot better.

Now, it seems that FitBit has followed suit and enlisted the help of famed American designer, Tory Burch for their new FitBit Flex collection.  (more…)

iPhone 6 production

Another day, another iPhone 6 rumour. As we draw closer and closer to the (expected) announcement date of the iPhone 6 in September, the rumours are churning out hard and fast.

This time, however, the rumour comes from a respected source in the form of the Wall Street Journal.

The Wall Street Journal has reported that Apple is planning a massive production of their next generation iPhone, the iPhone 6. And as everyone keeping an eye on iPhone developments should know, the iPhone 6 will allegedly be available in two sizes – a 4.7-inch model and a larger, 5.5-inch.

According to the report, Apple has asked their suppliers to produce between 70 – 80 million units by the end of the year on December 30th.  (more…)

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…)

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?

Published by on Jul 22nd, 2014, No Comments

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?

Sony Xperia Z2 Review: Jack of all trades

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?
