It's good to know that the original LG G Watch R will eventually get Wi-Fi support but I can't help but think that the only reason it isn't getting it straight away is to entice people new to the market to buy the newer LG Urbane watch instead of the now lower cost G Watch R.

It's all about business I'm afraid (imo)

Lower cost? On Amazon they're only £15 apart!

My Sony Smartwatch 3 is so ready for Android Wear 5.1.1

This morning I couldn't find my watch, and I actually missed it. It felt like my left hand had been cut off (OK, it wasn't quite that bad).

In all seriousness, this was only the second day that I haven't worn it to work since buying it, and it was surprising how much I missed it. I couldn't say to you that the watch is useful in any shape or form, because it doesn't really do anything. But without it, I felt lost. Each time I stepped away form my desk, I felt the need to take my phone with me, where as normally I'd happily leave it on my desk knowing I'd get notifications via my wrist.

So the next step is being able to leave my phone anywhere (more than 10 meters away) knowing the watch is still synced via WiFi. That for me is the single reason I chose the Sony version over all other manufactures. I know it is ready for this, just give me the update somebody ... pretty please...

If you are tempted by the smartwatch market, but aren't quite sure if it is for you yet. Well this here is an absolute steal at this price. £131

A great device and not a bad price if you want to test the waters. But once you have it, I don't think you'll be replacing with any other model anytime soon. I still love mine, and I haven't got the latest 5.1.1 firmware update yet.

I like my SW3. Saw a Moto 360 for the first time the other day and realised they're pretty bulky :)

This was an interesting read about the dangers faced by drivers everyday, and how autonomous cars are learning to avoid those dangers the best they can.
After 1.7 million miles we’ve learned a lot — not just about our system but how humans drive, too.

Sauber Fans, this may be of great interest to you :)
Mike Crumpler originally shared to Formula 1:
 
+Sauber F1 Team​​ has decided to create themselves a couple of +Google+​​ Collections. Head over to their profile now and check them out. Always at the forefront of social media :)

But what this post is really about is something much more exciting, and I'm not sure even Sauber realise this yet. I certainly didn't until just now, but... when you follow a collection, you can also choose to get notified when new content is added.

That's right, if you want instant breaking news from Sauber's "Racing News" collection, head to it now and turn notifications on. This way you can always stay up to date with lap times and other info from all the sessions as soon as it is shared by Sauber, never missing another post again. Just be careful if you are trying to avoid spoilers ever.

Let's hope more teams follow suit!

(Hopefully Sauber don't mind that I used one of their photos as the main image for my own Formula 1 collection)

If you own a Motorola (android) phone. Be sure to check out the latest update to the camera app. With manual exposure now available as a slider around the focus ring, you will always get the right lighting level for every photo.

Fantastic update +Motorola Mobility​!

I don't have a Motorola phone but that does sound like a great feature. My One+1 has manual camera controls, too, but they're buried in the menu and hard to get to, for the most part.

I can't wait for these to be available for public purchase. Would I buy one. Hell yes, but it wouldn't be for its looks.

For the record, mine would be kitted out with a pillow and a duvet. I assume sleeping at the wheel hasn't be banned in autonomous vehicles???

Has anybody used +Truecaller​​ ? This sounds like something I'd like on my phone (even if I'm lucky and don't get many nuisance calls).

Certainly has a lot of +1s (over half a million), just not from anybody I know yet! It actually strikes me as the sort of company Google would go and buy.

France bans wifi at Nursery' and Primary Schools

This isn't the first time I've heard about this sort of thing. In fact I actually carried out an electrical installation for a product testing facility where they provide SAR ratings for devices. The procedure included strapping a device to a mannequins head and taken measurements from within. So even 15 years ago I knew radiation was being leaked in to our brains. It's no secret.

With more and more devices about, and more and more WiFi access points popping up everywhere, are we slowly poisoning ourselves and our children? And if we are, how can you escape it? WiFi is everywhere, Homes, schools, offices, hotels, trains, planes, retailers, restaurants, high streets, and even beaches. Just about anywhere and everywhere you go you could be putting yourself at risk.

Any now we have wearables so things can only get worse. We are voluntarily strapping emf emitting devices to our bodies. Are we crazy? Are we naive? Does this bother you? Or do you think France is just overreacting? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

thanks to +Helen Craig​ for sharing this article with me,
As France bans Wi-Fi in nursery and primary schools, a British expert who has given up using wireless gadgets says we should do the same

It could all be just scare tactics, they say using a mobile gives you brain tumour yet people are hardly dropping like flies.

The things that Google invest in never ceases to amaze me.

How I'd love to know what other things Google is coming up with behind closed doors. This is why I'm happy to use their services. Sure they make money out of knowing my every movement on the internet, and probably in real life too. But look what they do with it. Just fantastic.

A Wristband that Destroys Cancer Cells

Google has now secured a patent for a potentially cancer cell-destroying wrist-worn device. In combination with the magnetic nanoparticles in Google’s cancer-detecting pill, the device could generate its own magnetic field, allowing it to corral the particles, with targeted cells not far behind. The device will presumably offer a readout of just how cancer cell-saturated your blood is. Think of it like a wearable glucose monitor - only instead of sugar, it’s counting tumor cells.

If you are looking at my profile you better know me already :-)

And for those that don't, then follow me on Google+ and you'll soon understand my love for Formula 1 (F1) and everything Google (See links below)

My number one passion has to be my wife who, for anyone that knows her, is an inspiration. And lets not forget our gorgeous son.

Be sure to engage on my posts, and you never know, I may even circle you back. I do ask however, if you get to be part of my limited posts, anything I discuss about my private life, is to be kept private. Feel free to bring up anything about my life on other limited posts, but on public posts, please keep anything you have learned about me out of the comments. Many thanks, and I look forward to engaging with you all.
