Apple iPad

Since the announcement if Apple iPad, there have been many negative comments all over the world, from the name, to the design and hardware. Is the comments justifiable? Let me do some quick analysis.

1. iPad, eyepad, maxi-pad or iTampon? Why did Apple, for all it's brilliant, uses such a controversial name? And due to the name, there will be a lawsuit from Fujitsu. It's all about marketing ploy. With all the jokes around the name, does it helps that the iPad is all over the places?

2. The design with the large black borders. Then again, with a 10" size tablet device, you need to hold on to it and not mess with the multi-touch in the display. With the borders, it helps that you can comfortably holds on to the device on your crouch.

3. No webcam? It's a let down but come to think of it, how many times have you use your webcam for video conferencing? I have done that less than 5 times on my iMac and MacBook. And many of my friends are in the same boat as me. They tried it once or twice when they got their webcam new, then chuck it aside to collect dust.

In fact, I have come to term with the iPad after my initial disappointment. It's a brilliant device that serves a purpose well. I will come to that in my next write-up.

Getting Watch Maker and third party watch faces to work on an iOS connected Android Wear

Many people loves their Apple Watch, so do I. As Android Wear improves over the past year,  we started to take it seriously. I have got an Huawei Watch with cool round 400x400 pixel AMOLED display. It looks like a traditional watch with a glance at it. The cool thing about having an Android Wear is that you have access to tons of cool watch faces. Apple Watch is limited by the fact that it has limited selection build by Apple, no developer has been given access to build any watch face for it.

You must be wondering how do you connect your Android Wear to iPhone and get access to third party watch faces. The Android Wear iOS app provided by Google provides access to some limited selection of watch faces, you can't use any of those that are out there on the internet developed for Watch Maker or Facer.

Thanks to Kevin from XDA Forum, you are in luck now. 

You can now install third party watch faces on your Android Wear and get connected to iPhone for notifications and Google Now. It may …
