There’s a new Pebble smart Watch in the works and we are hearing the first set of rumors! In other news, Apple is finding problems left and right.
Think the Pebble smart watch is amazing? We will have to agree with you, but the the company thinks they can do better. Or at least that is what the latest rumors suggest. So a count down has shown up at the Pebble website, signaling for something to be revealed on Tuesday, February 24th at 7 AM Pacific.
What could it be? We have no idea, but 9to5’s sources swear it’s all about a new Pebble smart watch. This device would have a thinner profile and a colored e-paper display. It’s said it will also sport a microphone, but despite its improvements, it will continue to have the amazing battery life we have come to expect from Pebble.
It will also come with a new OS, built from the ground up by the same team behind WebOS. It will be very different, so let’s see what Pebble has for us come Tuesday morning!
Opinion: I use my Pebble on the daily and haven’t gotten tired of it one bit. Is it really time for an upgrade already? We will see what the Pebble 2 has to offer!
Apple is not wasting time when it comes to its secret automotive project, but we all know cars take a while to make. Bloomberg is reporting that “people with knowledge of the matter” claim Apple could have a vehicle in production as early as 2020.
No other details were given, but this seems like a reasonable release window. Meanwhile, Apple continues to get experts on vehicle production, which has proven to be a reason for one of their many lawsuits. Vehicle battery maker A123 Systems is suing Apple for “systematically” hiring its high-level employees in order to compete with them.
Opinion: That lawsuit wouldn’t be the first case to get Apple in court. They are pretty used to it by now, so the Cupertino giant should be fine. What I really want to know is when we will see more on that Apple van!
It turns out some Macbook Pro computers have been having video-related issues. If Apple is known for something it’s their good customer service, so they are taking this matter seriously and providing free fixes to affected models.
The products affected include the 15 and 17-inch Macbook Pro laptops from 2011, as well as the 15-inch Macbook Pro with Retina from 2012 and 2014. If you are getting bad video on the computer screen, can’t see any video or the computer restarts itself, you may want to contact Apple.
In addition, those who have paid for fixing said issues will also be reimbursed. Pretty neat, right?
Opinion: Are any of your laptops affected by this? I know I would be really upset about this. Thankfully they are working on it.
