  • Fitbit's Apple Watch competitor will offer third-party apps & 'app gallery' at launch - CE...

    I've been using FitBit for about 3 years or so now, but in that time I have had to purchase about 4 FitBit Ones, the Aria scales and just this last December decided to upgrade to the FitBit Charge.  In the last 6 months I found that the almost-week-long battery has deteriorated to the point where I was charging it once every two days and physically, the point where the rubber strap meets the watch face had split away from the base, creating an 'open lip' that I would catch on almost everything.

    I'd been attracted to the Apple Watch since launch, but was unable to justify the price to myself, but after tallying up the cost of my FitBit habit, and knowing the build quality that Apple seems to maintain, I decided to treat myself to the Nike AW2 in June and (so far) am as happy as Larry!

    FitBit... kiss my arse!

  • Apple TV won't get Amazon Prime Video until Apple agrees to 'acceptable business terms'

    I get Amazon Video as part of my Prime membership, which I get half price as a student.  AV is hopelessly difficult to discover film or TV, and they discreetly hide inclusive paid content with the free so you could end up paying to watch something.  Turning off the paid content only lasts for that session (on my TV), so the next time you turn on the TV it reappears again.

    Netflix has Amazon beat on this so I'm not missing the app for my apple TV and the sooner Apple buys Netflix the better!

    ... though I am looking forward to TopGear II on Amazon, but I assume they will promote that within the app, so I'll not have to go searching! :)
