The Fit watch face only gives one display, which is a shame. If you could swipe through or pick one it would be much better.

Some pics from +Forde Abbey and Gardens taken with the +Mi Yi Camera!
I did take some 1080p videos at 60fps which are impressive but I need some software to edit them! recommendations please!

Overall I'm impressed! the android app connecting to the camera is a bit buggy And for that reason having Bluetooth support for a remote is quite important!

I dunno I struggled with justifying a use case but then I decided I was a geek and didn't care!
Although I do have a dog harness coming ;-)

this seems like a really cool idea! now if someone could make this work with an android wear device with a HRM then that would be awesome!
 
Nymi finally released a new companion app for Android. Would be great to test if I had my Nymi band that I ordered a loooong time ago. Hopefully it comes soon.
Nymi Band is a wristband that acts as a secure authentication device to acc...

The Xiaomi Yi waterproof case arrived today from the magical people in China!
Awesome case which also attaches nicely to handheld monopod (I prefer that to selfie stick)

Its on securely but I'll have to be careful if I have to take it off!

I must be being stupid but I can't see a way to disconnect from a WiFi network in lollipop (cm12.1/blisspop) unless I "forget" the network!
Anyone else know? :-)

Which is really annoying. My phone frequently connects to BT public wifi which I get at home instead of my main router.

Here it is, in all its Rear Key glory. LG's 2015 flagship continues to evolve the hardware design language seen with the Optimus G, and promises to offer some healthy competition for the other big names this year. The G4 keeps the rear button layout that has become a staple in LG devices, adding three ceramic and six leather options for the backplate — which you'll be glad to hear is...
