Pebble Time

Untitled

Pebble Time arrived today, over two years after I got the original Pebble watch. During this time the software for the original Pebble matured significantly. With the new Pebble Time, the company behind the watch introduced a new "timeline" concept that is very intuitive. They also focused more on the essential services such as the watchfaces and notifications - paying less attention to apps. Experience with the previous model has shown that people don't run a large number of different apps on their watches.

4G LTE

4G

I am probably the last kid on the block to get 4G/LTE but the speed still impresses me. Even with a not so good 3 out of 5 bars connection I get speeds way beyond "full rate ADSL" (8 Mbps downstream, 1 Mpbs upstream) and that was an impressive wired connection not that long ago. And I get it wirelessly. On a cell phone network. At a reasonable price.
