Here’s The First Hands-On Video Of Android Wear In Action (Spoiler: Lower Your Expectations)

The video above is a hands-on report with a beta unit of LG’s upcoming Android Wear smartwatch. Not a lot is shown. Hopefully that’s because it’s in beta and not the true depth of Android Wear. Google Now’s card-based UI is prominently featured. Apparently, like earlier shots also show, users scroll through a list of cards. However, even if this is just a beta unit, the user interface leaves a lot to be desired. Of course this is par for the course with Android. Historically it takes several software incarnations to properly translate Android into different form factors. Google TV and Android’s venture onto tablets took several significant updates before it was worthwhile. Android’s open nature also allows each OEM a bit of wiggle room. There’s a good chance that Motorola’s Android Wear watch could be significantly different (and better) than LG’s. As early product shots have shown, the hardware seems polished enough. It looks a touch thick, but that’s to be expected from a first-generation device. Charging appears to be done through a proprietary connector instead of microUSB, allowing the device to be dust proof, as LG previously announced. Article source:...

Foursquare Loses Biz Dev Head To Postmates, COO Also Departing

Foursquare’s COO Evan Cohen and VP of Biz Dev Holger Luedorf are leaving the company, reports Re/Code’s Mike Isaac. The departures come amidst major changes for the company. The Foursquare app split in two and spun out with new app Swarm earlier this month. Foursquare’s CEO Dennis Crowley told Isaac the two departures were merely coincidental. He maintained that Foursquare was doing “just fine.” Cohen, who has been with the company for 4.5 years now, says he’s leaving for personal reasons. As he told Isaac: “I was running low on gas, frankly, and it made sense for me to hand the baton off to a fresh new executive.” Foursquare confirmed to TechCrunch in an email that they’ve appointed Jeff Glueck, a former Travelocity CMO and former CEO at Skyfire to replace Cohen. Mike Harkay, a current Foursquare biz dev team member, will be stepping in for Leudorf. “We couldn’t be more excited about Jeff and Mike’s new roles, and the continued momentum of Foursquare,” said a spokesperson. “Evan and Holger have been instrumental in growing Foursquare from a small shop to a company employing more than 170 people worldwide – without them we wouldn’t be where we are today. Luedorf, meanwhile, will be joining the still young food delivery startup Postmates.  Foursquare says they are excited for Glueck and Harkey’s new roles. According to the company, they conducted an extensive, six month search process before deciding on...
