Apple has shown up in its first American magazine cover! Meanwhile, Inbox wants you to be active from more platforms and Geeksphone wants you improve your sexual performance.
The new Self magazine shows Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel, but that is not the most important part here (only us geeks would say that!). What matters is that she is wearing a shiny little Apple Watch.
Apple is no stranger to magazine covers. In fact, they have shown up in Vogue China in the past, where they shows just how fashionable their new watch can be. Now they are hitting the US masses by being featured on the cover of Self magazine, with a much higher focus in health and fitness. If you want to get your hands on one of these, it happens to be the March issue.
Opinion: The Apple Watch will easily beat the competition in terms of advertising. Hitting magazine covers is a huge deal! No other smart watch manufacturer has achieved that.
Inbox by Gmail launched with support for Android and iOS smartphones, as well as the Chrome browser. Now, that covers most of us, but what about those of you who want to use the service with other platforms?
Worry not, as Google has expanded Inbox availability. For starters, the Android and iOS apps have been optimized for tablet use. You can grab the apps from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. In addition, Google has ended its Chrome exclusivity and Inbox is also available for Safari and Firefox users. Just sign in at inbox.google.com and you should be set!
Opinion: I was never a huge fan of Inbox, but I know some of you love its organizational features and the easy flow it offers. If you are an Inbox user, you should be happy about today’s news.
How good of a lover are you? You can simply ask your partner, but you know some of them will lie to make you feel better! If you want to make sure, you best go with an activity tracker that monitors your sexual performance!
As funny as that sounds, it’s becoming a reality. Spanish manufacturer Geeksphone is working on an activity tracker named the GeeksMe. This device can give you notifications, set alarms, track your activity, monitor your sleep and a couple features that are not very ordinary. These would be ecological footprint and sex tracking.
Geeksphone plans to have this device out before Summer vacations. You know, when all that free time and awesome weather make for the perfect sexy time. Price is still unknown, but the company does mention they plan to undercut the top 10 brands in the market.
Opinion: Undercutting the top 10 brands is quite ambitious, if you ask me. This is still not a full-on smart watch, though. Geeksphone could be tricking us with language and comparing this to the big guys, which tend to have much more features. Regardless, I can’t wait to learn more about this. Hopefully at MWC!
