The USA have had Apple Music support on their Amazon Alexa / Echo devices since 17th December 2018. In the UK (& Ireland) we had to wait, but that wait is now over and the good news is Amazon Alexa / Echo is now supporting Apple Music in the UK and Ireland!
The ECG App has been available in the US since December 2018, and today Apple have pushed out the App to the UK and Europe – woop woop!
Now, as a result of Apple gaining a CE mark for the ECG app and irregular rhythm notifications, a certificate applied to products intended for sale in the European Economic Area, UK users should be able to do the same. It also marks the latest move in the technology company’s increasing interest in health apps and data. As you can now find quality heart rate sensors in a vast array of wearables, the inclusion of a proper ECG is a key differentiator for Apple’s smartwatch, though even here others are offering now similar tech (most recently Withings’s Move entered the ECG space, for example).
This really is amazing news for UK Apple Watch wearers and leaves me in a horrible position! I was just about to pull the plug on a pair of AirPods – but now I totally want to upgrade from my Series 2 Apple Watch.
It’ll probably have to be the latter! Cue a trip to the Apple Store tomorrow!
The good news for early adopters of the wearable is that the watchOS update will also allow those with older generation Apple Watches not sporting the new sensors to identify signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib), a condition identified by a rapid or irregular heartbeat that can lead to heart complications. The feature is available in 19 European countries, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain, as well as here in the UK.
Go to the Watch App on your iPhone to get the update now. Like right now!
As if by magic, mere hours after I mentioned it right here on tbni.blog the official announcement has come…
The Classic SNES is coming on 29th September 2017 and will be priced at $79.99 / £79.99 (although Smyths Toys currently have preorders listed at £69.99.)
You are going to have to be quick though Amazon have stopped preorders, ShopTo have it marked as ‘Sold Out’ and Game is just crashing. This is going to be another Mini NES scenario and the popularity of it is fuelling this SNES even more! eBay already has listings for £180 and eBay.com has preorders listed at $299! Keep an eye on places like Tesco, Asda etc who will probably start their preorders over the next day or so so in the quick so you won’t have to rely on eBay and Gumtree scalpels!
Preorders have already started for the new iPad Pro, and lead times for some combinations are already touching 10 days for dispatch – but when can you go into an actual store, have a look at the new devices and walk out (hopefully) with one?
That is a much harder question to find the answer to, no where seems to have that date in black and white.
Well I do.
It is today – Tuesday 13th June 2017.
So get yourself down to the Apple Store and have a go. (Pickup at this moment 00:00 hrs is not currently available).
The reviews have already started coming in and they are very positive, however one thing shines through in every review I have seen… iOS11 is when we will truly know the true potential for the new iPad Pro and it won’t be with us until the Autumn (Fall for all you guys and girls stateside).
The Colt by Breitling expresses its youthful, dynamic and winning spirit in a brand-new model dedicated to thrill-seekers, with an avant-garde case in Breitlight® and an ultra-technical black look. Code name: Skyracer, like that of the plane flying under Breitling colors in the fabulous Red Bull Air Race.
On January 27 & 28th 2017 the ArenaCross UK Tour graced Belfast’s Odyssey Arena for two rounds of the UK Competition. With everyone from 7 year old kids to Europe’s finest indoor Motorcross Racers and a ridiculously skilled Freestyle Team this really is a high octane, completely flat out show from start to finish – and it’s a format that works and this is its fifth year on the bounce in Belfast – and my second.
Anyone who knows the One Plan knows that it was an amazing deal offered by Three that basically meant you gave them £15 hard earned pound coins and they gave you unlimited calls, texts and data, truly unlimited that even allowed tethering.
If you didn’t know about it, unlucky, you missed out.
One problem though, as with everything good it was abused. People cancelled their broadband and such, streaming and downloading TBs of data every month. Of course this then made such a plan unsustainable and caused Three to bin it. I understand that. It is what happens next that I do not understand.
