Fitbit Eyeing to Buy Troubled Smartwatch Maker Pebble

Fitness wearables manufacturer Fibit looks to be in a serious mood of buying troubled smartwatch maker Pebble, according to The Information. Not only this, the source even says that a deal would officially allow Fitbit to take on Pebble’s technologies and intellectual property, such as its operating system.

Although the amount of buying Pebble is not yet disclosed, but speculations are that Fitbit is buying it for just $40 million. However, the truth is, this particular amount is barely enough to cover up Pebble’s debts amounting to at least $25 million.

And, if we go a little back, Pebble dismissed 25 percent of its workspace in March because of tight financial condition of the company. So, keeping the fact and current scenario in mind, Fitbit is eyeing to make the most out of this deal.

Reddit’s CEO on the Move – Edited Comments that Criticized Him

Just like all other forums and communities, moderators at Reddit have the rights to ban or edit any post that doesn’t suit or fulfill the criteria. However, the CEO of Reddit, Steve Huffman did something beyond the expectations.

Recently, Huffman edited the comments that were critical of him. Instead of using his Reddit username Spez, he edited it so that everything he would do gets directed at the moderators of The_Donald, a subreddit of Trump supporters.

Huffman says, “I messed with the “fuck u/spez” comments, replacing “spez” with r/the_donald mods for about an hour.”

It’s been a long week here trying to unwind the r/pizzagate stuff,” Huffman said. With this, he technically refers to the ongoing conspiracy theory that links Hillary Clinton, her campaign chairman John Podesta, a Washington DC pizza parlor, and clandestine pedophile ring.

If you think that doing edits with people’s comments or posts is injustice and disrespectful to them, then Huffman now thinks the same. He said, “Our community team is pretty pissed at me, so I most assuredly won’t do this again.”

McDonald’s Drive-Thru Gets Digital Makeover

When it comes to fast food industry, then we all know that McDonald’s wears the leadership cap. But, during the last couple of years, the most dynamic fast food chain has fallen behind its competitors quite drastically. It’s may be that customers haven’t been provided with an order-and-pay method via smartphones. And, keeping this particular aspect in mind McDonald’s gives digital makeover to its drive-thru by rolling out mobile order-and-pay technology.

According to Business Insider, McDonald’s will be launching its mobile order-and-pay app next year to facilitate its valued-customers with the easiest way of ordering their happy meals.

Initially, the technology will roll out to selected locations in the US. Moreover, it will also hit the international market such as Canada, France, UK and Australia to cater a wide range of audience across the world.

It’s not the first time McDonald’s is experimenting to be more customer-centric. The reputed fast food chain has made a couple of technological tests before including “Create Your Own Taste” menus at selected locations in 2014. But, this move will turn out to be reasonably impactful in terms of customer convenience.

Samsung’s Ultra-Modern Gear S3 will hit the Market on November 18th

Can’t wait to wear your new Gear S3 smartwatch?

Well, you no longer have to wait because Samsung Gear S3 will hit the US market on November 18th. And, the happiest news of all is that you can preorder it from the 6th of this month.

To make your order, you can go to Samsung’s official website straightaway. Also, you will be able to buy it from Amazon, Best Buy, T-Mobile, Verizon and Macy’s AT&T.

The news is not something new as Samsung has already made an official announcement of its Gear S3 smartwatch at IFA presentation two months ago. But, there is a lot more you should know about its features.

Gear S3 comes in two flavors, a Classic and a Frontier, but the truth is they both look similar. Both of the models visualize a stainless steel chassis which is water resistant of course and coated in scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass SR+.

However, apart from similarities, Samsung Pay is the only feature which makes Gear S3 a real BIG THING for sure, which also makes it the first smartwatch to support the MST tech. It means you can pay for goods quite easily wherever credit cards are accepted. Sounds good?

A Modern Twist to Samsung’s Mobile Accessories is displaying a Good Sense of Style

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has now become a past because the company keeps customers’ satisfaction on top of the chart. And, Samsung’s latest range of stylish mobile accessories is bringing the curiosity back once again.

Each accessory is meant to be connected with a smartphone or tablet to double the dose of entertainment and enhance functionality at the same time. However, the products are only available in South Korea, but in the initial days of November they will be available in multiple markets across the world.

In total, there are only six products including a battery pack, a wireless charging tray, two wireless speakers and in-ear headphones. But, the only thing that makes these accessories different and entirely unique is their sleek and stylish design.

On the other hand, we still have to wait for prices because Samsung has not revealed any pricing information officially. It seems like value for each accessory will vary depending on the country you’re in.

Apple Goes with 16GB of RAM for Macbook Pro to Save Battery Life

Apple is always known for designing quality products and this is what the company has tried to incorporate on its new laptop edition, Macbook pro. However, despite of attributing super power Skylake processors, incredible GPUs, efficient SSDs and new thermal architecture, Apple limited its RAM capacity to 16GB.

On the other hand, a huge number of Mac users were expecting the company to bump up the maximum RAM to 32GB, but all their wishes were spoiled and left them with so many questions.

Such a chaos couldn’t stop one user who dropped an email to a general apple line about a 32GB RAM option and got surprised after hearing an instant response from marketing chief Phil Schiller himself.

Below mentioned are the details of an exchange between both of them;

Q: The lack of a 32GB BTO option for the new MBPs raised some eyebrows and caused some concerns (me included). Does ~3GBps bandwidth to the SSD make this a moot issue? I.e. memory paging on a 16GB system is so fast that 32GB is not a significant improvement?

Schiller: Thank you for the email. It is a good question. To put more than 16GB of fast RAM into a notebook design at this time would require a memory system that consumes much more power and wouldn’t be efficient enough for a notebook. I hope you check out this new generation MacBook Pro, it really is an incredible system.

Although the response from Phil Schiller was immediate, but will it be enough to satisfy the needs of tech savvies, especially those who prefer Macbook over other laptops?

Instagram is Looking Serious to Add Live Video Option

Facebook launched its ‘live video feature’ back in January, which is considered to be an effective way to connect with the loved ones on the spot. Moreover, this incredible live video feature is playing an integral role for entrepreneurs and brands to indulge with their fans and customers more effectively.

But, it seems like Facebook owned social network Instagram is curiously looking to launch its live video option too.

As reported by Russian website tjournal.ru, it seems like Instagram is testing out a live video feature.  The screenshot used as a feature image here suggests that live videos on Instagram will appear the same way as stories.

However, unfortunately there is not much news gathered regarding its usability, as clicking on it takes users to a “popular live broadcasts” page which isn’t loading.
