Tired of LG news? Neither are we, but we still thought you should learn about what Apple, Tesla and CRUZ are doing. Let’s dig right in!
The Apple Watch is all the hype in the wearable market. We know millions of you are buying one, and we also know tens of thousands of you will want to tinker with it. Apple knwos this too, and they are taking all the precautions they need in order to keep the Apple Watch as intact as possible.
A new breed of apps is about to hit the Apple App Store. There will be a little bit of everything, but you can be sure there won’t be watch face replacement apps around. Apple has made clear they plan on rejecting all watch face apps from their app store.
Opinion: Currently there is no way to install third-party watch faces into the watch. A workaround could be to simply use an app that tells the time (and other things), but this could pose battery life issues, among other things. This is likely why Apple wants to keep a close leash on watch faces; they don’t want the experience to be affected. Hopefully support for third-party watch faces comes soon, though. And we can only assume that will be the case. It would suck if the most creative watch face you can get is that Mickey Mouse one.
Invites for a new Tesla event have been sent to press the last couple days, teasing what they are calling “the missing piece”. This event is scheduled for April 30th, so we only have to wait a couple days before finding out what this is all about.
While there is not much to go on, the biggest thing we are expecting Tesla to announce is a home battery CEO Elon Musk has been talking about. This battery is said to have the ability to store solar power, and will be rented, as opposed to sold.
Opinion: Those who know even a bit about solar power can attest to the fact that it is amazingly expensive. Can Tesla bring us an affordable option that could make solar energy mainstream? It sure sounds like it – we just have to find out how affordable this really will be.
CRUZ has come up with a new series of electric bicycles that is my dream come true. These look like beach cruisers, but they have much ore power than their cute exterior suggests. These things can run at up to 36 MPH and can last 30 miles on a single charge.
Recharge time is equally impressive at 2 hours, which means it will be hard to run out of juice as long as you are not traveling far. There is a catch, however. A pretty big one! These bikes cost $4995!
Opinion: Really, guys? That is the price of a scooter or affordable motorcycle! I am sure you won’t be selling many of these, as awesome as they are.
