Adstoppi Blog | Apple Watch Studio lets you make the Apple Watch of your dreams

Published by:


Today, coinciding with the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 5, Apple has launched Apple Watch Studio, a way to mix and match Watch casings and Watch straps to order the exact Apple Watch Series 5 that you want. It’s available right now on Apple’s website and in the Apple Store App, and will be coming to Apple’s retail stores in the future.

Previously, Apple only let you customize your Watch by picking from Apple-selected sets of casings and straps, and by buying individual straps to add afterwards. Apple did offer a lot of different casing/strap combos, but if you wanted, say, the stainless steel watch with a link bracelet, you would have had to buy them separately. With Apple Watch Studio, you don’t have to buy anything extra.

After making your selections, you click or tap the “I’m done” button on your screen, and then you’ll be able to confirm your case size, pick if you want a model with cellular connectivity, and check out. And if you don’t want to use Apple Watch Studio, you don’t have to — Apple still sells its Apple-designed casing/strap sets as well as individual straps.

What is the Arecibo message

Published by:

Today's Google Doodle marks 44 years since the Arecibo message was beamed into outer space. The Arecibo message was a signal sent in 1974 from the Arecibo Observatory's radio telescope. Designed as a celebration of the facility's remodeling it communicated a message about humanity to a distant cluster of stars. Sent from Arecibo's megawatt transmitter and 305-meter antenna it was possible to concentrate a signal on a very small point in the sky. The power of the signal was the equivalent of a 20 trillion watt broadcast, according to SETI. The message was tiny by modern standards. It contained only 210 bytes made up of 1,679 binary digits. Essentially zeros and ones being beamed into space using frequency modulation. The transmission lasted less than three minutes in total. At the power...

Last week, a report from the CSIS Security Group pointed ZDNet (and the rest of us) to a very shady app on the Google Play Store called “Updates for Samsung.” It offered to provide system-level Android updates to phones — and, in fact, it did redistribute Samsung’s software, though it was essentially a scam to get you to pay money for said updates. Today, after we inquired, Google told The Verge that the app violated its policies and has been “suspended.” It is unclear what specific policy Google cited and when it became aware of the app. Last week, the developer of the app, Updato, claimed to BleepingComputer that it was pulling the app to “remove the firmware service portion and non Google payments,” though it defended the app as a “convenience to our audience.” In a...

7-Eleven Japan shut down its mobile payment app

Published by:

On Thursday, 7-Eleven Japan suspended a recently-launched mobile payments feature on its 7Pay app after a flaw allowed a third party to make bogus charges on hundreds of customer accounts. The company released the feature on Monday, July 1st: it allowed customers to scan a barcode with the app and charge a linked credit or debit card. However, the company received a complaint the next day: a customer noticed a charge that they didn’t make. The app had a flaw, according to Yahoo News Japan (via ZDnet). A hacker would only need to know a user’s date of birth, their email, and phone number, and could send a password reset request to another email address. The app also defaulted people’s birthdates to January 1st, 2019 in instances where they didn’t fill out the field, making it even...

Twitter is banning all political ads globally, starting November 22nd, according to tweets by the company's CEO Jack Dorsey on Wednesday. The changes will affect both candidate ads and issue ads, although ads encouraging voter registration will still be allowed, along with other exceptions. Dorsey said a full policy will be made available to the public on November 15th. "Some might argue our actions today could favor incumbents," Dorsey said. "But we have witnessed many social movements reach massive scale without any political advertising." The company's decision comes after weeks of Facebook stumbling over the same issue. Earlier this month, Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign penned letters to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube asking that they refuse to run false or misleading...

On November 19th, Google will officially become a game company, one with its very own console, controller, and distribution platform for the latest triple-A games. If all goes well, it may stand shoulder to shoulder with Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo and Steam, or even surpass them someday. That's because Google is the biggest, best-positioned company to ever throw its weight behind cloud gaming — a technology that lets you play a game without discs or downloads, by streaming them from remote servers, just like you'd stream a YouTube video to your TV, laptop, or even the phone in your pocket. But it also means this may be a make-or-break moment for cloud gaming if its champion fails to impress — and it's not looking good. On the eve of launch, it feels like the deck is...

Ehang, a Chinese company that builds drones large enough to carry human passengers, filed paperwork with the US Securities and Exchange Commission to go public on Nasdaq with a $100 million offering of depository shares. The company, which has flown thousands of test flights over the years, is preparing to launch what it hopes is the world’s first autonomous air taxi service in the coming months. The company's primary vehicle is the two-seater, 16-rotor Ehang 216, which is based on the previous generation Ehang 184, but with eight arms instead of four. This allows the vehicle to seat two passengers instead of just one. The 216 was first announced in February 2018, after which time the company demonstrated both piloted and autonomous test flights. A piloted flight test with Dutch Prince...

Amazon is still working on a mobile home robot, according to a report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. It’s also planning to add a high-end Echo to its lineup of Alexa devices. We first heard about Amazon’s plans to build a wheeled home robot in April last year. The project is reportedly codenamed “Vesta” (after the Roman goddess of the hearth), and rumors suggest it’s a sort of “mobile Alexa” that’s able to follow users around their homes. Today’s report doesn’t add significantly to this picture, but it seems Amazon is still keen to build the mobile device. It was apparently slated to launch this year but wasn’t ready for mass-production. Engineers have reportedly been pulled from other projects to work on Vesta, and Gurman reports that prototypes are “waist-high...
