Unofficial iPhone support for Android Wear without Jailbreak unveiled

Android Wear is one of the most recent developments in wearable technology and smartwatches. Wearables have a lot of potential, but right now they still have their drawbacks. Besides a comparatively short battery life, the largest drawback is no cross-platform support. Until now, Android Wear could only be used with an Android smartphone.

Not like it's the same game - and not like there isn't a precedent for creating games like this, like Bejeweled turning into a game about candy, or anything like that. And forbid it that there ever be a game like Bejeweled that takes what Dr. Mario was - or what Tetris was - and evolves it into something entirely new, with a smidgen of the old game in its bones.

Inbox by Gmail updated for iPad

Inbox by Gmail updated for iPad

Google has updated their iOS build of Inbox by Gmail to work for the Apple iPad. This update brings a couple of changes to the way the app is organized on the tablet vs the ever-so-slightly smaller iPhone. This app continues to be an "invite only" situation, but emailing inbox (at) google (dot) com generally results in an invitation sent rather rapidly. This app is also (obviously) out for Android and was originally released to both platforms essentially at the same time.
