LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition brings cellular connectivity to Android Wear

September 30, 2015 Leave a comment

LG shows no signs of slowing down with its smartwatches and has just taken the wraps off the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition. If you delve deep into the sands of time you will no doubt remember the launch of the original LG Watch Urbane all the way back in May of this year.

There are more changes under the hood than you might expect given this short turnaround time too. The headliner of course is the addition of LTE, a first for Android Wear. GPS has been added as well, something that we hope to see most Android Wear devices offering going forward for fitness tracking purposes.

The screen is slightly larger at 1.38-inches (up from 1.3) and the resolution has similarly been bumped up to a class leading 480 x 480. The battery was fortunately not forgotten receiving a boost up to 570 mAh (up from 410).

The Watch Urbane 2nd Edition adds quick access to critical features through the three buttons on the side of the smartwatch including the ability to flip ambient mode on and off with a touch of the crown button.

No details on pricing or a release date at this time and naturally for the LTE functionality you are going to be dealing with a carrier.

Check out LG’s promo video below and let us know if you think you are ready to leave home armed only with your smartwatch.

Outlook for Web gets Facebook-style ‘likes’ and Twitter-style ‘@mentions’

September 30, 2015 Leave a comment

Microsoft has announced that it has added a couple of new features to its Outlook for Web service. These include Facebook-style Likes and Twitter-style Mentions.

Now you can endorse a specific email by liking it, something which you can do by clicking the thumbs-up icon in the reading pane, similar to the way you do it on Facebook.

“This turns the icon from gray to blue, notes within the email that you liked the message and adds a thumbs-up icon in the email list view,” the company said in a blog post. You’ll also get a notification when somebody likes your email.

Moving on, the Mentions feature lets you grab someone’s attention as well as automatically include them in an existing email thread. To use the feature, just add the @ symbol (see image above) in the email body, followed by the contact name.

“Their name will be highlighted in the message in blue and they will receive an @ flag in their inbox view next to the message,” the software giant said.

Although the Likes feature will begin rolling out today, it’ll currently only be available to Office 365 First Release customers whose Office 365 plan includes Exchange Online. Office 365 commercial customers will start getting it towards the end of the month.

Similarly, the Mentions feature – which will begin rolling out in the mid of the month – will also be initially available to First Release customers only. Office 365 commercial customers will get it next…
