Apple iWatch Rumors

More rumors coming out today about the Apple iWatch over at Pocket Lint. The fact that Apple has been working on a smartwatch won't come as much of a surprise but now the "leaked" pictures and rumors are going to be coming fast and furious as it is being reported that the iWatch will be launched in October. According to supply chain details it's looking like the watch will look similar to the Motorola 360 smartwatch but since it's made by Apple it will be "revolutionary". For more on this set of rumors head on over here.

Design details of the Apple iWatch have been revealed by an analyst that claims to have got the information from within Apple's supply chain.

Brian Blair of Rosenblatt Securities alleges that his sources in Taiwan are insistent that the new smartwatch from the Cupertino company will have a round face, much like the Motorola Android Wear device, Moto 360.

Kingston Brings 64GB DDR4 kits to CES 2015

Kingston brought some great stuff to CES this year with a new SDD drive, DDR4 RAM, a new M.2 form factor SSD, and a 7.1 channel gaming headset. The HyperX Predator PCIe is the new M.2 SSD that boasts a 1400 MB/s seq read speed and 1k MB/s seq write speed. Kingston was also showing off the HyperX Predator in 2.5-inch form factor as well which uses the Phison s10 controller which allows for speeds of 560 and 540 sequential read and write speeds.

Next on the list is the HyperX Cloud 2 gaming headset that touts a USB DSP sound card in the microphone control unit. It allows for switching between normal operation or 7.1 channel virtual audio with the press of a button. From a short demo of the headset, gaming sounds pretty good with the 7.1 enabled, however music sounds much better with the 7.1 audio off. With the best saved for last, the new HyperX Predator DDR4 64GB RAM is claimed as the first to be produced using the official standard for DDR4. This ram can operate at 3000MHz and in quad-channel making this ram very beastly.

Google Isn't Giving Up On Glass

Eric Schmidt loves his Google Glass. While the company appeared to scrap the Google Glass project a few months back, Eric is saying that Glass is not gone. While the Explorer program has been put on hold, the project lives on and Google is making some major changes to the platform as the world simply has to catch up with Google on this one. I think I agree here. Glass was ahead of it's time - both in terms of perception and usefulness. If 2015 isn't the year of the Glass-wearable, I think we'll see a major comeback by 2016 at the latest.

“It is a big and very fundamental platform for Google,” Schmidt said. “We ended the Explorer program and the press conflated this into us canceling the whole project, which isn’t true. Google is about taking risks and there’s nothing about adjusting Glass that suggests we’re ending it.”
