Withings now integrated with Sony Lifelog lifestyle tracking app

No one fitness wearable or app can live alone. More often than not, these various apps, programs, and even devices will have to work together in order to give the consumer the best information they need and to meet their needs wherever they are. Sony said during the CES earlier this year that they wanted to build a more evolved wearable portfolio, and that means going into business with third-party partners. Now they’ve launched their first partner card with Withings.

Waze now cautions drivers approaching dangerous intersections 

A lot of drivers nowadays rely on navigation apps to help them reach destinations faster or drive around unfamiliar areas. Waze is one of the more popular ones available for mobile and so 5 major cities in the US are now partnering with them to caution drivers as they approach dangerous areas, based on data from the waze itself and from the local governments. This will hopefully eventually remove those areas from that category as fewer incidents should occur there.

Trekkies rejoice! Star Trek themes now available on Swype keyboard

Before all your Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones fandoms, one of the most die-hard group of geek fans out there are the Trekkies or those who love the Star Trek universe. And while fanboying/fangirling is now more mainstream than ever, that hasn’t doused the ardor of these fans, even though some weren’t that happy with the reboots.

Rockchip develops Light Work OS, mimics Windows OS

Manufacturers of tablet devices are trying to beat the drop and looking for features that can give them an edge in a cutthroat tablet market. One of Rockchip’s solutions could be an effective, if not necessarily an original one – that is, offer an Android version that mimics Windows OS so that it can become more “work friendly”. The result is what the Taiwan-based chipmakers call “Light Work OS”, and it is set to be featured in a tablet device soon.

The Sony Xperia Z5 is coming. Oh we’re sure of that and we know that Sony will be making a grand reveal at the IFA 2015 next week in Berlin.

Metallic variants of LG G4 launched in India

LG G4, the newest flagship of the Korean OEM, is a pretty good new smartphone, and it has made a name for itself, particularly because of its leather back. The unusual style of the device made it stand out from the market. But now, they are releasing variants of the smartphone that don’t carry that distinctive feature, but instead, these are metallic versions of the device and will only be sold in the Indian market.

OnePlus 2 experiencing some grounding, home button not responding well

Any new smartphone isn’t immune to any issues. Name any device or model from any manufacturer, even those from the top brands, and they sure have some bugs or issues that need immediate fixing. The original OnePlus One had touchscreen issues but a firmware update quickly solved them. We were hoping there won’t be any of those on the OnePlus 2. There's none but apparently, the phone now has a grounding issue according to some early adopters.

Instagram not so square now,allows portrait and landscape orientation

We’ve gotten used to cropping our photos into a square and viewing them as well in this format ever since Instagram came into our lives. But sometimes it gets frustrating, especially if the photo or video looks better when in landscape mode, especially if it’s that of a sprawling mountain range, the glorious sunset on a beach, or even those panoramic shots which some smartphones can take. But now Instagram has finally relented and is now allowing users to post their images and videos in formats other than the square one.
