Friday Monday Tech Update
Quick rundown of the Tech news of the day:
For some reason my Friday post did not publish, sorry about that, but here it is in its entirety with some updates that came in over the weekend:
- The new Ear Pods introduced at Apple’s iPhone 5 unveiling are better… but still sound like crap.
- Speaking of the iPhone 5, Apple’s press release this morning gives the new gadget credit for being the most “Successful iPhone Launch Ever” as pre-orders surpassed 2 Million over the first 24 hours!
-We already know that Apple is unrolling its new Maps app when IO6 officially drops on the 19th, but Amazon is apparently moving away from Google Maps as well with their Amazon Maps API moving to Beta.
- Tech and Fitness company Fitbit already has a devoted following with its fitness trackers and scales, but their newest products the Fitbit Zip and Fitbit One add bluetooth connectivity with a handful of mobile divices, something sorely missing in early models of the gadget. With this addition Fitbit, you have officially made it to my wish list, congratulations.
What a great way to start the week, a post that should have gone up the week previous. I promise a full slate of post this week as I try to get back to my regular schedule. Questions and comments are always appreciated, as always you can catch me on twitter @JoshArtrip, or @Misguidedgeek, or comment here in one of the post, I check them every 5-15 seconds. As always, thanks for reading, and stay geeky!
