  • U.S. Cord Cutters Watch More Netflix Than Amazon Video, Hulu and YouTube Combined

    Netflix is continuing to dominate streaming services in the U.S., not only in terms of penetration in cord cutters’ homes, as reported in April, but also in time spent watching. According to data from comScore, cord cutters are watching more Netflix each month than YouTube, Hulu and Amazon Video combined. But Hulu users are more engaged with the service on a daily basis, the study indicates. The data from comScore was cited by MarketingCharts in its own report released this morning, and follows on earlier findings that the user base for subscription video services has now topped the cable TV...
  • The watch that tells boring people when it’s time to shut up (Oh this has great possibilities)

    It could be a robotic guardian angel for anyone on a first date who fears they may be boring. Scientists have created a gadget that is worn like a wristwatch and uses artificial intelligence to assess a conversation’s tone. It can differentiate between happy, sad and neutral, but some versions could also tell whether your delivery is boring or awkward. It could be installed in smartphones or watches that would vibrate if the conversation went downhill during a date or interview, researchers said. Please click on link for full article)
  • Paramedic stole James Gandolfini’s Rolex as he lay dying

    A paramedic has been accused of swiping James Gandolfini‘s $3,000 Rolex as he laid dying from a massive heart attack. Claudio Bevilacqua, 43, allegedly stole the Submariner watch from “The Sopranos” star after he collapsed in the Boscolo Luxury Hotel Exedra in Rome during a family trip in June 2013, according to NBC News. He was rushing Gandolfini to the hospital that night when the timepiece disappeared, though it is unclear if it vanished from his hotel room or while the actor was wearing it
  • Banning Gun Sales to People on No-Fly List May Not Be Constitutional, Experts Say (Capt Obvious)

    12/11/2015 6:46:15 PM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 22 replies
    On Thursday, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy announced plans to issue an executive order barring anyone listed on federal terrorist watch lists from purchasing a gun in the state. But while the idea of “no fly, no gun” has found growing support following the mass shooting in San Bernardino last week, including that of President Obama, experts say such a policy may be unconstitutional. The problem lies with the terrorist watch lists themselves, which are both secret and routinely updated without the typical due process given to those who are accused of breaking the law, such as court proceedings. Without a...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force revealing that Barack Obama’s February and March 2015 travel for golf vacations and fundraisers totaled $4,436,245.50 in taxpayer-funded transportation expenses. The documents regarding the Obama travel expenses came in response to two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests filed by Judicial Watch. To date, the Secret Service has not provided requested information, as required by FOIA, regarding security costs.

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding the resignation of House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-OH): John Boehner’s willingness to fund rather than oppose Barack Obama’s lawlessness is a chief reason for his forced resignation from his position as speaker of the House. It is no small issue that, during Boehner’s tenure, Judicial Watch is widely acknowledged to have been performing the oversight that is the job of Congress. We’ve heard from many members of the House who are embarrassed that its committees and oversight have become a joke under Speaker Boehner. Judicial Watch...

    I’ve put off writing about the Apple Watch until today because, quite frankly, I didn’t know what I wanted to say. But last night it came to me… The Apple Watch is the coolest gadget in the world that you don’t need (and I say that with all due respect). I’ll spare you the product details (visit www.apple.com/watch) so I can spend the rest of our brief time together explaining why I love Apple Watch, but don’t think you (or anyone) really needs one (at least not yet). First, some background: I have collected and worn reasonably priced wristwatches for...

    Market Watch ^ | 07/07/15 | Brett Arends
    Sales of the new Apple Watch have plunged by 90% since the opening week, according to a new market research report. Apple AAPL, -1.27% has been selling fewer than 20,000 watches a day in the U.S. since the initial surge in April, and on some days fewer than 10,000, according to data from Slice Intelligence, a Palo Alto, Calif.-based market research company. That is a sharp decline from week of the April 10 launch, when Apple sold about 1.5 million watches, or an average of about 200,000 a day, Slice estimates. Furthermore, two-thirds of the watches sold so far have...
  • Apple Watch interest sinks as iPhone demand stays strong

    Investors Business Daily ^ | 07/01/15 | ATRICK SEITZ
    While iPhone sales remain strong, Apple Watch sales look limp. Pacific Crest Securities analyst Andy Hargreaves on Wednesday raised his Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone sales estimates, but trimmed his targets for the Apple Watch. Hargreaves has a sector weight rating on Apple stock, with a 12-month fair value of 139. Apple stock was up a fraction, near 126, in afternoon trading on the stock market today. Apple stock touched its all-time high above 134 on April 28. "Anecdotal evidence suggests Apple Watch demand is slowing quickly," Hargreaves said in a research note. "This dovetails with recent supply checks, which suggested a...

    On the back of the new Apple Watch, there are two sets of lights and sensors. One sends out and receives visible light, while the other works in the infrared part of the spectrum. Together, they form the technical core of the watch’s coolest feature—a heart rate monitor. This kind of design—using optical sensors to measure pulse—is not unprecedented, but Apple, of course, claims to have improved the system over competitors like the Basis Peak, Samsung Gear Fit, or Mio’s line of activity monitors. Which would be a good thing, because these systems have struggled with their accuracy. “Everyone has...

    SYDNEY - Early adopters of the Apple Watch are complaining that a number of its key functions are disrupted by their tattoos. Users of the watch, which went on sale last week, took to social media on Thursday under the hashtag #tattoogate to air their frustration with the flaw from Apple's renowned design house. One anonymous user on Reddit, an entertainment, social networking, and user-generated news website, said the device's locking mechanism, which should disengage when the watch detects it is being worn, failed to work on decorated skin. "My hand isn't tattooed and the Watch stayed unlocked. Once I...

    PEOPLE have been raving about the Apple Watch, so it is probably time for a rant from a devil’s advocate. For starters, Apple’s smartwatch is neat, but that might be the only thing it has going for it. If the product’s intended function is providing you with around-the-clock health information, then there are a lot of roadblocks that need to be addressed. Here are five: (...) 1. Battery life is as terrible as you would expect. 2. Too little screen for too much information. 3. It is too big. 4. Even the positive reviews are negative. 5. The Apple Watch...

He spoke to The Telegraph about the company’s first smart wearable, and in that interview he talked about what will motivate a purchase decision for the Apple Watch now, and why it’ll only get more attractive as time goes on. Cook told the Telegraph that he suspects an initial driver for...

    With President Obama determined to leave his mark through regulations, administration officials are trying to finalize as many health and consumer safety protections as possible before his term runs out. Agencies such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration have a host of final rules on deck for what could be a burst of rulemaking in Obama’s final two years in office. Rules that agencies are expected to finalize in the next year include safety standards for ATVs and electronic reporting of workplace injuries. Here's a look at what the...

    To pay tribute to its 175th anniversary, Patek Philippe created a collection of limited-edition commemorative timepieces, and one of them stands out in particular. It is the so far most complicated wristwatch of the eminent family-owned watchmaking company and decidedly one of the world's most elaborate wristwatches. This is due not only to the number of complications involved but also to the horological degrees of complexity, two of which have been added to the annals of watchmaking for the first time. Moreover, the Grandmaster Chime is the first double-face wristwatch presented by Patek Philippe that can be worn with either...
