Google Glass 2: Enterprise Edition revealed in photos

Google Glass 2: Enterprise Edition revealed in photos

The second edition Google Glass header has appeared, and it looks... very similar to the first. This is what Google calls the "Enterprise Edition" of the headset, aiming it directly at the industry that decided it was a device that'd be helpful - businesses. Using this headset in the line of duty in a wide variety of trades has been a real boon for the popularity of the device, and here it would appear that it's been kept afloat by the segment that Google doesn't normally go after - not with as much veracity as the consumer world, anyway.

Moto 360 Sport Review Part II: what no other device has

Moto 360 Sport Review Part II: what no other device has

While my first inclination was to title this post "what no other smartwatch has", that just wouldn't be accurate. What we've got here is a bona-fide piece of technology in the Moto 360 Sport that's never been released in any device before. Here, according to Motorola, the Moto 360 Sport equips a "first of its kind LCD display." It's a first of its kind, that is to say, in that it "combines a traditional backlit transmissive screen with a front lit reflective technology." The best of both worlds - always visible.

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

The Android Wear smartwatch Moto 360 Sport from Motorola has arrived on our review bench this week and we've taken it on a stroll. Before our full Moto 360 Sport review begins, we've got a few points we need to go over, starting with our initial impressions. As it turns out, this watch isn't the "lesser" version of the Moto 360 that we expected it to be. In fact, the design of this piece of equipment makes us feel as though Motorola's somehow kept the finer points of the non-"sport" model Moto 360 (2015) whilst adding a more robust bit of body in its rubbery silicone "sporty" watch band.

Kyoto University: no smartwatches during entrance tests

Kyoto University: no smartwatches during entrance tests

Smartwatches are the perfect cheating tool: they're small, easy to conceal, and can be loaded with information before an exam. Some schools and universities have banned smartwatches during certain examinations as a result, and latest among them is Japan's Kyoto University. In a statement late last week, the university said it is banning smartwatches during entrance exams starting in 2016.

One year on from the first release of the very first Apple Watch and some slightly more solid rumors have just begun to appear. While we've been hearing conjecture on the next model just about as long as we've been able to try the first Apple Watch on, this week we're having a look at the details we're sensing are close enough to the mark to speak of. Remember, as always - it's not 100% confirmed until Apple says it, but given the relative predictability of release schedules in the company's past several years, there are some bits we can glean.
