ASUS takes a jab at Apple, shows off ZenWatch and ZenFone 2

I think this is the first time I've seen ASUS bold enough to take a jab at Apple and be intense in advertising the latest ASUS ZenFone 2. Why, the Taiwanese manufacturer has just posted a handy shopping guide obviously making fun of the very expensive Apple Watch. ASUS referred to Apple's first smartwatch as the "golden watch".

After a long time of waiting, the Cupertino company is finally releasing the actual Apple Watch on April 24 with a premium price tag.

Nike+ brings in more partners to improve fitness platform

Nike's Fuelband, which was their first attempt at an actual wearable, didn't exactly light the fire under runners' shoes, but it was a good experiment for the shoe-turned-fitness-advocate brand. It may have showed them that instead of focusing on hardware, their customers might be best served if they focus on developing software and then leverage off actual fitness wearable partners that have more experience than them in this arena. Hence, we now have the updated Nike+ app and the addition of support for other fitness devices.
