Talk Back To The Web With Flock

Filed under
Software

If you are an early adopter, one of those like me who likes to try and experiment as early as possible with these fascinating new media technologies, you are already probably familiar with Flock, the social browser built on top of the FireFox engine.

But if the early news of Flock have passed by you too fast to really have a go at it, I think that I have seen enough "good" from Flock to suggest to the ones of you who make the web work for them, to definitely give a good whirl to this elegant new browser.

What is so good about Flock is that this is the first browser that does not consider anymore the browser user a mere passive consumer of content. If you are an independent publisher, a news reporter, a blogger, Flock enables you to talk back to the Web without having to fire up other tools.

Full Story.

Why I prefer Samsung Gear’s Tizen to Android Wear

A few months ago our US Senior Editor Andrew Grush offered his praise of the Moto 360, having spent a month with it. Despite the quality of the writing itself, I took issue with the core of the content: that Android Wear is a suitable platform for wearables. I have to disagree, at least as things now stand. Android Wear seems fundamentally broken due to its being chained to Google Now and a smartphone, something not so true of Samsung’s Gear products, which run on Tizen. After a discussion with Andrew however, a larger issue surfaced: the divergent opinion is largely based on the individual’s needs and expectations. To this end, I felt it an interesting experiment to delve into the functionality of both, and try and give readers a bit more insight into the very different paths that Google and Samsung are taking with their wearables.
