Age of Ultron Experience 


  

So yesterday I went a saw Age of Ultron at the new VIP theatre at Landsdown. It was a really good experience overall. 
I used mobike Cineplex app to purchase and hold my ticket. Then put my ticket into passbook.

 

The VIP theatre has great seats that you reserve when you purchase your tickets so your guaranteed seats and seats together if your going with someone or a group. The seats are fantastic and can recline and also have a table for your food and drink that can be put in front of you and also the arm rest can go up to be closer to your date. And they also offer a real menus for food and drink which means no little kids in this theatre.  

       

Overall this is a great way to see a good movie.

Apple Watch Try On Session 


So today I had my try on session. Overall I love the look and feel of the 42inch size for myself. 

Apple Watch black sport

So this is the watch I will be getting with the black sports band. The band feels really nice and the watch even at the larger size feels great on my wrist. The scree is amazing bright and sharp for text and pictures. Also the watchface customization is great. You can also really feel the tactic feedback for notifications and text. 

Apple Watch With Milanese Loop

This is a really sharp look with the stainless steel watch and loop it looks and feels amazing to the point that I really considering upgrading to the Apple Watch instead of just the Sport. It still feels light and looks good. The loop works great it can be set to any fit sense it secures with magnets. 

Leather Bands 

I like the look of the leather bands but they don’t feel as good as I thought they would. The default sports band looks and feels much better to me.

So here is a great review by The Verge. I can’t wait to get my hands on this device and try it out for myself.

Here is a overview chart of all the reviews of the Apple Watch so far:

Reviewer Watch model Verdict Thumbs up / Thumbs down
Mashable Lance Ulanoff 42mm “The Apple Watch is an excellent, elegant, stylish, smart and fundamentally sound device.”
New York Times Farhad Manjoo 42mm “Indeed, to a degree unusual for a new Apple device, the Watch is not suited for tech novices…It takes some time getting used to, but once it clicks, this is a power you can’t live without.”
The Verge Nilay Patel 42mm “For all of its technological marvel, the Apple Watch is still a smartwatch, and it’s not clear that anyone’s yet figured out what smartwatches are actually for.”
Wall Street Journal Geoffrey Fowler 42mm “I’ve found the Apple Watch isn’t a replacement for the iPhone, but it’s the right screen for many important things.”
Wall Street Journal Joanna Stern 38mm “Apple’s new watch wants to be your all-day helper. But the promise doesn’t always match reality.”
Bloomberg Business Joshua Topolsky 42mm “The Apple Watch is cool, it’s beautiful, it’s powerful, and it’s easy to use. But it’s not essential. Not yet.”
Re/code Lauren Goode 42mm “It is a well-designed piece of technology that will go through a series of software updates…”
Yahoo Tech David Pogue 42mm “The Apple Watch is light-years better than any of the feeble, clunky efforts that have come before it.”
CNET Scott Stein 42mm “You don’t need an Apple Watch. In many ways, it’s a toy: an amazing little do-it-all, a clever invention, a possibly time-saving companion, a wrist-worn assistant.”
USA Today Ed Baig 42mm “Apple Watch is an elegant combination of style and purpose, even if it indeed often serves as a stand-in for the iPhone tucked away in your pocket or purse.”
The Telegraph Matt Warman 42mm “It’s beautifully designed and frequently rather useful – but history suggests version two or three will be even better.”
Daring Fireball John Gruber 42mm “Time telling is where Apple Watch fares worst compared to traditional watches. That was inevitable. “
Techpinions Ben Bajarin ?? “Apple’s implementation delivers on the promise of notifications done right.”
Men’s Health Marissa Stephenson 38mm “I can say that the Watch is useful, fun, inspiring — but it can also be a little frustrating, needy, and redundant with my ever-present iPhone. It certainly demands attention.”
Style.com Nicole Phelps ?? “Our wrists simply can’t support a device big enough for everything we do on screens these days. I came to think of it as a filter instead, bringing what’s essential or pleasurable to me closer to me and editing out the rest.”
Daily Mail Mark Prigg 42mm “Apple undoubtedly has another hit on its hands – but like the iPad, it isn’t really obvious why you would want the product, until you try it.”
The Independent David Phelan ?? “If you’re tempted by a smartwatch, Apple’s is easily the best, with the most enjoyable interface, the most intriguing range of apps, immaculate build quality and a highly attractive design.”
SELF Liz Plosser ?? “After one week with the Watch, what amazes me even more is how it’s managed to untether me from my iPhone. It looks so cool, I’m more apt to wear it—and use it—all the time.”
TODAY Money Katie Linendoll 38mm “I think it does live up to the hype in the sense that it’s both fashion and function. I think Apple nailed it in the sense that it’s a statement piece as much as it is a timepiece.”

Apple Spring Forward Event


Apple Watch

So Apple on Monday, March 9, 2015 just had their Spring Forward Event where they launched their Apple Watch, the new Retina Macbook, the cheaper Apple TV with HBO Now, and Apple Research Kit.

But to me I’m really only want the Apple Watch. I’m looking to hopefully getting the Space Grey 42mm Sport model which is $519. But it still has all the same functions as the other Apple Watches and can still use all the 42mm bands of the other watches. I really like the functions of getting notifations on the watch from my phone and being able to use the watch to respond to notifications and media. As well as using all the fitness things that this watch has it should be great.

You can pre-order the Apple Watch on April 10 2015 as well as go into stores and look and try on the watches. But the $10000+ Apple Edition will only be in certain stores and limited supplies. The watch will ship on April 24 2015.

Pebble Steel Review


Pebble Steel
Pebble Steel

Well I decided two months ago to buy a Pebble Steel and have been using it daily ever since. I really like this watch since it can work with both iOS and Android phones that use Bluetooth 4.0 and LE. Plus the hardware for this watch is very nice and you can use two different custom bands either a leather one or a steel link one ( does not allow normal watch bands as it uses a custom link.) This watch especially when you use the leather band is pretty lightweight and non obtrusive.

This watch uses a app on both iOS and Android to pair it with your phone and manage your watch apps and faces as well as various other settings.  You can keep up to 8 watch faces and or apps on your watch at a time. You can still use more apps and watch faces but you would have to rotate the others into the locker. For notifications on iOS it sends every kind over that you have enabled on your phone for notifications but on Android you can configure your notifications more.  The great thing with this watch is you know when you get a notification it has a very strong vibration motor that buzzes every time your phone gets a notification that you want to be notified with. Plus you can accept or decline calls with your watch and control your music or media playback that is happening on your phone with your watch.

Battery life on this watch lasts between 5 to 7 days depending on your watch face and how many notifications you receive on a daily.

Overall I would recommend this watch especially if you are looking for a cross platform smartwatch.
