Will.i.am reveals Puls, a monstrous smart-cuff with a focus on fashion

pulls

Will.i.am has been talking about launching a smartwatch for a long time now, and finally unveiled the device at Dreamforce. The Puls is a device that wraps around your wrist, allows you to access popular social networking and has a built-in virtual assistant. But don’t call it a watch, Bill prefers you call it a cuff. “Watches don’t have SIM cards”, the multi-platinum artist proclaims, clearly clueless about the Samsung Galaxy Gear S.

Verizon to launch Motorola Droid Turbo at an event on October 28th

Verizon_DROID_Turbo_Event_2014

Just a few days ago, Verizon “accidentally” tweeted an image of the upcoming Motorola Droid Turbo, and then quickly pulled that image. It wasn’t the first time the Turbo had leaked, with a user manual making the rounds earlier in the week. Today we have the final piece of the puzzle as Verizon has put a countdown clock on their site, redirected from DroidDoes.com. The countdown shows a phone identical to what we’ve already seen and ends on October 28th, the same day as an upcoming Verizon event (the flyer for which features the same image as the countdown clock), so it is safe to assume that the Turbo will launch that day.
