Android Wear 2.0 starts rolling out, starts with three smartwatches

Rollout for Android Wear 2.0 has been a bit slow. But finally it’s starting to land into a few smartwatches. Google is rolling it out to three smartwatches first: the Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch, and TAG Heuer Connected. Unfortunately, the Huawei Watch and LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, which have both been running the developer previews since mid-2016, still aren’t part of the initial over-the-air update. According to one of Google’s Android Wear help form community managers, the watches have started to receive the OTA update and should be done by April 4th. Here’s to hoping Google finally rolls out to more Android Wear devices.

‘Serial’ podcast creators tries Netflix-style binge-listening for new podcast

With the lack of data and metrics to see what works for the podcast industry, creators on the medium can be a bit more creative when it comes to their content. Now, creators of podcast hit Serial are trying a different approach to releasing their new true-crime podcast S-Town. According to S-Town’s executive producer Julie Snyder, they thought that the story of this new podcast would best be told in the Netflix approach of dropping all episodes at once. "There's a lot of paranoia and a lot of accusations that get kind of thrown around back and forth," Snyder said. "And if we were going to do it weekly, you'd have to address all of those things in that episode. You can't leave someone hanging [when] accusing someone of being a murderer."

Serial became a hit even with its weekly release. So there’s no saying yet if the approach to S-Town will work for Snyder and her team or backfire. At the moment, though, it seems to be doing well on the iTunes podcast chart with it at the top of the list.

Stephen King’s ‘IT’ remake gets first trailer

If the trailer is any indication, we’re in for a scary ride with the remake of Stephen King’s IT. There was a lot of drama behind the scenes when it came to bringing this project together. The film was originally set to be adapted by True Detective’s first season director Cary Fukunaga. But production trouble had him leaving the project in the summer of 2015. The adaptation then fell into the hands of Andrés Muschietti, who directed horror hit Mama. And here we get a first look into the first of the two-part film. From the get-go you see deviations from the original and we hope this makes it a worthwhile remake. IT is set to come out in September 2017.

New York- Today was a comeback day of sorts for Samsung. The company, who had a rough year in 2016 on the heels of the exploding Galaxy Note 7 debacle, was back in form with its latest flagship smartphone launch.

The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ offer a refined improvement of Galaxy S devices of the past. Much more integrated design, a new Infinity Display which minimizes the bezel to a fraction of what we are used to. In terms of design, the Galaxy S8 5.8-inch) and Galaxy S8 + (6.2-inch) are easily the most impressive and desireable new smartphones we've seen in a long time.
