iOS 8 is here
The flood gates have opened and app developers have been busy leveraging all of the new iOS 8 APIs.

Get Transmit iOS on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
I know what you are thinking. “Holy $hit!, I can get a FTP client on iOS that has also provides a full fledged file manager solution. The reckoning is upon us.”
Flexible fabric circuit boards could provide a way to build wearable technology into clothing that you wash and wear normally.
Apple’s HealthKit and partnerships with medical equipment manufacturers seems very interesting.
Aside from this being a hardware + software ecosystem advantage play, I wonder if the medical equipment companies will have to pay a “Made for iDevice” license fee.
The fact that these outages are spread evenly across the web, telcos, Apple, and even across continents tells me this is about demand, not about poor provisioning.
I am not sure that I am digging the industrial design of the supposed iPhone 6. The color matching top and bottom pieces on the back of the device really make the antenna “breaks” stick out like a sore thumb.
I prefer the two tone back of the 5 & 5S as it ties in the color from the front display bezel and makes the antenna breaks less of an eye sore.
I am not a fan of Near Field Communication executions thus far. It feels antiquated and clumsy to take an expensive piece of tech and place it/rub it/knock it against something else. We will see how Apple leverages the tech.
According to Wikipedia, Bluetooth LE has a quicker set-up time, better data throughput, and consumes the same amount of energy when compared to NFC. I do not get the logic behind the choice to include NFC unless it is to provide backwards compatibility with existing Point Of Sale installations.
A very cool concept. The remote is handy for sending the caddy to that next tee box as they show, but the necessity to be constantly putting the remote on the caddy and then taking it with you seems clumsy and annoying.
A wearable with a follow/no-follow button would sure seem like a great solution.

Twenty months ago, it was a nameless prototype at CES 2013. Now Samsung’s sloping, curved OLED phone is real: meet the Galaxy Note Edge, the highest-end phone in Samsung’s lineup.
It is an interesting concept, but it is odd to create a device that favors a person who holds their phone in the their left hand. The demo shows that the touch tracking for the side rail is a bit finicky due to the small touch target area. I was getting frustrated just watching the the device not respond properly to the reviewer’s swipes.
An interesting concept, but it seems like there will be a lot of misinterpreted swipes that will lead to user frustration.
The future of protecting an open Internet has been the subject of fierce debate, and potential changes to the rules by the Federal Communications Commission could impact your online experience.
a cool product for Android users.
