No WiFi support for some smartwatches from LG, Asus

Apparently, not all Android Wear smartwatches are created equal. While those who own the Moto 360 and the Sony Smartwatch 3 are rejoicing that they will have WiFi support from the latest update from the wearable platform, some smartwatches like the LG G Watch, G Watch R, and the Asus Zenwatch will not be getting this additional connectivity from Android. There is still no word from Samsung on whether their devices have WiFi antennas.

Samsung Galaxy S6 / Edge Review

Qualcomm to build its next-gen chips on Samsung foundries

Make no mistake about it, this is a big deal for everyone following tech news.

Rooting will disable Samsung Pay on Galaxy S6

Ok, we understand that some people just don’t like Samsung’s TouchWiz. It’s gotten tremendously better in the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but there are some people who just don’t care for it.

We sometimes take for granted the "freedom" and capability we have to use smartphones and tablets whichever way we want. But having a disability should not be a hindrance for people to enjoy using gadgets and getting the most out of digital life (in addition to real life of course). That's why we always get a kick out of companies that develop gadgets and apps to help those who aren't fully capable of using one or two or more of their senses. Samsung is about to launch an app that will cater to those with upper limb disabilities.
