Google MODE made to snap-and-swap for Android (Wear)

It would appear that Google would like to get out ahead of the masses when it comes to "plug and play" for hardware. Not just for smartphones. They've got a program in the works for that, too - no, this "MODE" they speak of is for hardware only. Not electronics. Made to attach to electronics, of course, but hardware in and of itself. The first wave of Google's MODE brand is made for Android Wear devices. A series of straps have been made to snap in and out with extreme ease.

Since I prefer to have my main computer be stationary and powerful, it takes up a fair bit of space. And since I'd rather have as much available desktop space to attract clutter, it sits down by my feet. But what if your computer was inside of your desk? That's exactly where Lian Li wants to put it.

Reserve Strap in trouble: Apple blocks Apple Watch hidden port

Reserve Strap in trouble: Apple blocks Apple Watch hidden port

It's one of those stories where you can't really blame either side for the unfortunate but inevitable outcome. On the one hand, Reserve Strap tried to be a hero to answer the clamor for a longer Apple Watch battery life, utilizing hardware that Apple itself had put inside the smartwatch.

Three things Apple should have invented already

Three things Apple should have invented already

Apple invented the iPhone. They didn't invent the smartphone, but they did create a company that dominated smartphones.
