Microsoft Band vs Apple Watch comparison: Microsoft Band's great value fitness band offers more flexibility than Apple's expensive Watch. But will you wait for Apple?

1 comments, most recent: rednibkram said on : "

I love my Microsoft Band! I don't like that some people try to imply that the Band is a mere "fitness" device. It’s a lot more than that. It is also a kind of "smart band” similar to the Apple “smart-watch”. I can use my Band to call and text people. I can read text messages and reply to them verbally or, in noisy environments, using the "on-board" keyboard (something Apple
Watch can't do). I can take pictures with my Windows Phone with the band, access Cortana (like Siri) for personal assistance tasks, add calendar appointments (verbally), read Twitter and Facebook Messenger messages, monitor my sleep patterns at night, set alarms, stop-watch and timer, and all of this before I even get to the "fitness" capabilities which far out perform Apple Watch’s fitness capabilities. It may not be as "pretty" as the Apple Watch, but it sure can do a lot of the same things and more, and it costs
a lot less. Also my Microsoft Band battery has lasted up to 3 days before needing a charge, not 18 hours or even 24 hours. If you wear your Apple Watch all day, how are you going to monitor your sleep at night if it's sitting on the night stand charging? One last important difference is Apple Watch will ONLY work on iPhones (5 through 6 Plus) while the Microsoft Band will work with ALL iPhones, ALL Android Phones and All Windows Phones.

Apple Watch preview: Is Apple's smartwatch worth buying?

11 comments, most recent: robwin18 said on : "

So all in all a waste of lots of money eh though I expect all the sheep will love it despite it's faults.
Sounds as though you have bought one or am I reading too much into it.?
Think it's silly really that it's not much good without an iPhone.

Apple Watch preview: Is Apple's smartwatch worth buying?

11 comments, most recent: Dan Smith said on : "

An awful piece of kit - no camera, sluggish apps, bad battery life, no GPS tracking even on sport version, reliance on Siri's awful voice recognition and too dependant on your iPhone. Not being able to operate it one-handed was the real killer for me - not Apple's fault, it's a flaw with the whole concept of smart-watches.

Acer Aspire R11 review: Hands-on with the 360 laptop and tablet convertible

1 comments, most recent: dourscot said on : "

a Hard drive? Gah. Their understanding of the low-cost laptop is broken. That'll eat battery, boost heat, expense and weight and reduce reliability. And who honestly needs loads of on-board storage anyway?

IPVanish has top-notch encryption for smartphones when you use their android/iphone app. https://blog.ipvanish.com/use-... The app is snazzy and runs smoothly on my phone. I'm actually browsing faster with the VPN connection on my phone than without the VPN.

Compro C200 Plus review

7 comments, most recent: Mr Techy said on 19 January 2011: "Although it was easy to set up, recording from decent quality VHS produced mediocre results. Any slight glitches in analogue tapes were much more pronounced rendering some clips unwatchable. Analogue tape owners should look elsewhere."

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) 2.66GHz Core i7 review

5 comments, most recent: fubar1977 said on 17 January 2011: "Overall experience has been fantastic, this machine just does all I ask it to and has given me no problems at all. Buying a Macbook Pro has been a "leap of faith" that has paid off in every respect, only complaints have been minor OS peculiarities that disappear with familiarity. Totally Recommended."

PhotoBox review

1 comments, most recent: zeromarks said on 11 January 2011: "Spoiled a gift for a birthday celebration, and has made me incredibly angry. The customer service was atrocious in my opinion, I found the staff rude and unprofessional. My card still hasn’t arrived, and isn’t expected to arrive for “another 4 – 6 days”. This is in total 12 days for the printing of a simple card!"
