Snapchat's redesign isn't so popular

Snapchat just completed their biggest redesign since it launched in 2011. It unfortunately isn't all roses and sunshine as a "fake" tweet that said if it was retweeted 1.3 million times they'd revert back to the old design. Long story short, that fake tweet has become the 6th most retweeted tweet ever. 

It will be interesting to see if Snapchat caves or if the people that are upset actually leave. History shows that most likely people will accept the change and we won't hear about this in another week or so, but maybe Snapchat users are different?

TheDailyBeast has the story.

Last week Snapchat rolled out its biggest redesign since the app launched in 2011.

The company split the app into two sections, consolidating friend content on the left side, media content on the right, and installing a slew of other design changes.

Snapchat’s massive teen userbase is outraged at the update, and already desperately trying to get the old version back. 

iwown P1 Power Sport Watch Evaluation

We have just posted our evaluation of the P1 Power Sport Watch from iwown. This fitness tracker enters a very crowded market, but brings a lot of features, performance and battery life to help it rise to the surface. The app support is very well thought out as well. There is a lot to like, but a couple of things to note. Check the article for all the details.

The fact is that the P1 can hold its own in the market and do very well. It offers fantastic week-long battery life, a bright and clear display, touch interface, buttons as a backup, a comfortable band, enough sensors to keep most people happy and to top it off, it's water-resistant to 50M.

OnePlus' fix for HD Streaming

Good news: OnePlus has finally come up with a fix to their lack of HD streaming problem.

Bad news: You've got to ship it to them so they can do the update from an "authenticated" machine.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that OnePlus users aren't going to be super excited about this "fix". PCMag has the full story.

Smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has had a rough go of it lately. Minus the problems that are mostly the company's issues—a bout of stolen credit card information, potential backdoors that could allow hackers to access almost every OnePlus device, and privacy issues surrounding its smartphones' data collection capabilities—you're left with the smartphones themselves, which have their own pecularities.

Samsung @ CES 2013

One of the highlights of every CES is a stop by the Samsung booth and this year didn’t disappoint. Samsung has so many products on display which makes it feel like walking through a candy story wishing you could have one of each. The big product in the TV market this year at CES is 4k displays (4096x2160 resolution) and Samsung had a bunch of those on display. Right now content is pretty tough to find in resolutions that high, but the demo clips that they were showing attracted quite a crowd.

Also on display was one of Samsung's curved OLED TV's. The curve in the screen wasn't drastic but it was enough to give the picture a bit of a different look and thanks to the OLED technology the picture was great.
