Apple is Being Secretive About The iWatch

What Is The iWatch?

According to BlumeBerg Apple is working on “a wristwatch-like device that may perform some of the tasks now handled by the iPhone and iPad” Interesting but will it sell?

Wearable tech, we’re told, is the next big thing – and if anyone can make a truly desirable wearable device, it’s Apple. Its believed Apple has 100 designers working on the iWatch and fixing any challenges posed towards the iWatch.

Sounds like golden-child and knight of the realm Jony Ive, famous designer is working on the project. Having ordered in ‘boxes’ of Nike sports watches some years ago for research purposes. Again, that’s according to yet more Bloomberg’s inside sources. If its Jony Ive it will at LEAST look PRETTY.

The FT reported that Apple “has embarked on a hiring spree to tackle design problems” with the product, the iWatch is going to be Apples first new, original piece of tech since Steve Jobs Died (yay you finally thought of something a little.. original apple)

Google, Samsung and Dell have all expressed interest in developing watches, and dedicated companies such as Pebble have also seen widespread consumer enthusiasm for their own projects.

Lookin good Samsung

CEO Tim Cook even hinted at the iWatch during an investors’ meeting in February 2013. Well, he told investors that “obviously were looking at new categories” which is the same thing, right?

Some commentators, have asked the question whether watches are redundant because the existence of the mobile phone, with many consumers abandoning watches altogether. Nokia has previously said that its Windows Phone  can show things “at a glance” thanks to ‘live tiles’ on screen.

Applications for trademarks for iWatch around the world, as well as patent filings, however, point to Apple’s growing seriousness in the area.

In April, Apple itself hinted at “exciting new product categories” with Tim Cook promising “some really great stuff coming in the fall and across all of 2014” – could some of that really great stuff be worn on your wrist? The iWatch might be coming out in 2014 or better yet, 2013 even, fingers crossed!

Apple recently hired Paul Denever, the outgoing chief executive of fashion house Yves Saint Laurent. His brief on ‘special projects’, reporting directly to Mr Cook, is thought to include watches. Does this mean the iWatch’s development is in full swing.

Gorilla Glass:

“Apple is experimenting with wristwatch-like devices made of curved glass,”says Nick Bilton, quoting “people familiar with the company’s explorations”. The Watch “can curve around the human body” and it might be the just-announced Willow Glass, which “can flop as easily as a piece of paper in the wind without breaking.”

Adding credence to this particular supposition is the fact that Apple has patented a slap band style wrist band. which would require such a flexible display. Apple’s patented plenty of tech that never sees the literal light of day.

A Chinese website called Tech.163 thinks the iWatch will have bluetooth and a 1.5 inch screen. The iWatch might have siri, maps and health monitory, similiar to the nike wrist watches.

What do you think? Is the iWatch a good idea? list your opinion in the comments.

XBOX ONE VS PS4

ITS THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN OF 2013

THE XBOX ONE 

xbox-one-2

VS

THE PS4

Sony-PS4-Official

Answer The Poll Above So you Can Get Your Say About This Showdown

With this post it wont only be A SHOWDOWN PC And Gaming Enthusiasts will help you decide which one is better.

PRICE:

XBOX ONE: A hefty $500

PS4: $400

Conclusion: For the person who wants to save money the PS4 is the clear winner, but the XBOX ONE has a few.. extra features.

DESIGN:

XBOX ONE: Its 10% larger than the XBOX 360, and weighs 3.18 kg (xbox is putting on the pounds) the design is “a big fat black box”

PS4: Smaller than the PS3 and XBOX ONE, it weighs 2.8 kg, it has a slated design

Conclusion: The design can be contested, some people like different styles, in the comments post what design you like the most,

CPU:

XBOX ONE: It has a AMD 8-core jaguar CPU

PS4: It has a AMD 8-core jaguar CPU

Conclusion: The CPU is pretty much exactly the same for the consoles except the PS4 has 2GHz whereas the XBOX ONE has 1.6GHz. The consoles both use x86 architecture, the advantage of this is its easy to port to the different consoles.

GPU and RAM:

XBOX ONE: Comparable to Radeon HD 7000-series, 8GB DDR3 RAM with 32MB eSRAM.

PS4: Comparable to Radeon HD 7000-series, 8GB GDDR5 RAM.

Conclusion: At first it seems like their GPUs may be identical, but they are not. The PS4 graphics processor is 50 per cent more powerful, with 1152 shader processors against the Xbox One’s 768.

Having extra processing power will let the PS4 perform more tasks simultaneously – which should in theory allow for more impressive visual effects.

A more impressive GPU is matched with more impressive-sounding RAM. The PS4 uses GDDR5 RAM, while the Xbox One has more conventional DDR3 memory – and both have 8GB of the stuff.

GDDR5 has much higher bandwidth than DDR3, designed for intensive applications such as in graphics cards, while DDR3 is ‘bog standard’ system memory.

If DDR3 was all the Xbox One had, it’d be in serious trouble. But it also has an eSRAM buffer that should help to bridge the 100GB/sec bandwidth gap between the two RAM types. It has a 32MB chunk of eSRAM that will function as a frame buffer.

Exclusive Games

XBOX ONE: Halo 5, Dead Rising 3, Forza MotorSport 5, TitanFall, Killer Instinct, Sunset Overdrive, Ryse, Project Spark, Quantum Break and below.

PS4: Drive Club, Killzone: ShadowFall, Infamous: Second Son, Knack, Octodad: Deadliest Catch and The Order: 1886.

Conclusion: All the exclusive games are different while the XBOX ONE has many more exclusives than the PS4. Which is a + for the XBOX ONE. All the games are different and suit different tastes so you decide what game you think is the best. In the Comments list which exclusive you think is the best.

Well You Can Decide What Console Is The Best. Let Me Know What You Think In The Comments.

XboxOne-Controller

On PC and Gaming Enthusiasts, were going to review every single thing about the XBOX ONE, first starting off with the…

Controller:

xboxonecontroller

 

Looks pretty DAYUM sexy right? well thats what I think.

You got to admit the Xbox One Controller is really similar to the Xbox 360’s Controller (but why MESS with SUCCESS), with a different handle contour,with off-set analog sticks, the A, B, X and Y face buttons, a directional pad, and two buttons, Menu and View, where Start and Back were.

The controller maintains the  design of the Xbox 360’s controller. The directional pad has a more traditional design compared to previous Xbox controllers, and the battery compartment is slimmer (yay). The triggers will have built-in rumble system called “Impulse Triggers“, aka “fairy dust”

Colour or to the americans Color:

Its called liquid black, its kind of like a black pens ink, looks very, do YOU agree tell me in the comments. Instead of calling it “liquid black” you could call it “a really dark black”, none of that fancy business man talk.

THE BATTERY:

Charging your Xbox One controller will be done via mini-usb cable. No information yet on battery life of the controller, or charging time. The controller will take batteries in a new integrated battery compartment. The controller has shed some pounds.

SOUND:

Audio delivery through the headset will be a higher quality than what Xbox 360 users have become accustomed to, thanks to an improved data transfer rate between the controller and console. According to Microsoft, communication be clearer than when speaking on a telephone. Put a beats by “Dr Dre” logo on the controller, and make the consumer pay a hundred dollars more Microsoft.

SYNCHING:

The controller will utilize both invisible reflective technology and LEDs to communicate with the console and Kinect, which will make syncing the devices a simple task. The technology can also be used so that Kinect can pair the controller with the person holding it, so that if a couple of friends were enjoying a multi-player game, the console can configure the split-screen positions based on where each is sitting. One pretty smart controller Microsoft, good one.

XBOX ONE CONTROLLER BUTTON NAMES:

The Xbox One Controller introduces two new buttons on Xbox where Start and Back appeared on Xbox 360. These buttons are named ‘Menu’ and ‘View’. One small leap for Microsoft, one giant leap in the Video Game Industry.

Menu: “The Menu button (on the right) will bring up context-specific menus which game and app developers can design to enhance the user experience. The Menu button could be used in scenarios such as bringing up in-game menus, showing video playback options, and accessing commands on the console’s user interface.”

View: The View button “will change views or provide more information in games and apps. The function of the View button will be driven by developers. Possible uses of the View button include viewing a map during a role playing game, displaying a leaderboard in a first person shooter, and enhancing the navigation of the console’s user interface.”

Watch_Dogs Impressions

Watch_Dogs is a new blockbuster open world game. I know your thinking “not ANOTHER grand theft auto clone”. Dont worry watch_dogs is far from a clone of grand theft auto.

Watch_Dogs_box_art             Watch_Dogs is a mix of:

.Stealth

.Open world

.Action adventure

Its an interesting combination but can they make it work: YES they can I have seen all the trailers and it looks AMAZING.

Whats it coming out for?: Playstaion 3 and 4, xbox 360 and xbox one (failed with the pr) and the wii u, and microsoft windows, and steam.

The coolest thing is YOU CAN HACK things, whoa that’s fresh. Your Aiden Pearce, voiced by Noam Jenkins a canadian actor.

Watch_dogs was first unveiled at e3 201. Its an innovating new game with many things to offer, like what PC and Gaming Enthusiasts? good question reader…

Combat:

Combat utilizes a combination of stealth components and parkour along with the mechanics of a cover-based third person shooter.

[Home Page Carousel] Aiden_Car_Slide_99825

The World Is Alive:

Hacking into people’s phones to retrieve bank data and steal funds, triggering malfunctions in equipment to distract other characters and hacking into traffic lights to cause collisions. Players can also receive information on civilians via online feeds, providing the player with information on demographics, health and potential behaviour. Objectives showcased in presentations include finding specific targets to kill, evading the police and following potential victims in order to stop their would-be killers. Pretty cool right.

Wheres the game set:

Chicago, oh is that snores im hearing, Chicago isnt the star its the TECHNOLOGY. Chicago has a ctos (the fuck does that mean) Central Operating system. Every Computer or smartphone in the city is linked to it. HACKING AHOY.

PLOT:

Its all about about information warfare people. The game follows Aiden Pearce an anti hero, who fights with “fists and wits”, the ctos, contains data about EVERY SINGLE PERSON in Chicago, thats alot of things to hack Aiden.

DEVELOPMENT:

Ubisoft Montreall began development work on Watch Dogs in 2009. Ubisoft Montreal’s creative director Jonathan Morin noted that Watch_ Dogs is designed to “go beyond the limits of today’s open world games”, referencing both its use of information as a plot point, and allowing players to control the entire city through its hacking mechanics. It was first unveiled at e3 2012.

Although a copy of the trailer was accidentally posted early by Ubisoft’s YouTube  channel, it was quickly removed shortly before its official debut.Stupid Ubisoft!

In the comments say your opinion on watch_dogs, this is a free country right.
