Huawei chief questions Smartwatches

Eric Xu, CEO of Chinese tech firm Huawei has said he doesn’t see the point in smartwatches.

At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, he responded to a question about smartphones longevity due to the rise of wearables:

Mr Xu said: “I’ve never figured out why we need to wear smartwatches when everything we need is on our phones….I’m not a man who wears watches, and I’ve never been optimistic about this market.”

Controversial but others have shared a different approach to Smartwatches:

“Smartwatches are a solution looking for a problem, rather than being a game-changer,” Ben Wood, an analyst at tech consultancy CCS Insight told the BBC, adding “2017 is a pivotal year for smartwatches with lots of new launches at the end of this year. That doesn’t guarantee success, but with a lot of them, we’ll see if people want them.”

What do you think of smartwatches?

What do they have to do to make them go mainstream?

Do you see the point of them?

Are they more of a companion piece of tech than a must have?

What features would you put on them to turn it into a must have item?

Apple buying Disney?!

According to a story circulating the internet, Apple is weighing the option of buying Disney. For $200 billion.

“Recently, investors have increased their expectations that Apple could seriously consider acquiring Disney,” the report says.

Making it clear that Apple are open to “acquisitions of any size”

Disney, one of the few companies in the world that is as instantly recognizable and popular as Apple, makes for a compelling potential partner.

It would require federal help though:

Apple would need U.S. regulators to give it a “tax holiday” to repatriate offshore cash to fund an acquisition of Disney. Assuming Apple could obtain a 9% tax rate, it would effectively have access to cash of $223 billion.

Episode 212 Avegant Glyph


Have you ever looked forward to leftovers at work only to find someone’s got there before you? Or come home to find your flatmates have finished all your milk, borrowed your toiletries or even helped themselves to your alcohol?

Well you’re not alone as new research from ADT reveals that one in four Brits have been the victim of ‘Petty Pilferers’.

So ADT has used its expertise to create MAIA. A limited edition concept: smart motion-activated camera alarms to stop Petty Pilferers in their tracks and identify who’s behind leftover looting.

This innovative concept design uses smart technology, sending a picture of the would-be pilferers to the owner’s phone as soon as they go near the alarmed item using motion-sensor technology. So you can catch the culprit with their hand literally in the cookie jar.
