Kehadiran Mobile LTE di Apple Watch Series 3

Adanya dukungan modem LTE akan menurunkan tingkat ketergantungan generasi ketiga Apple Watch terbaru terhadap keberadaan iPhone. Adanya dukungan modem LTE membuat Apple Watch terbaru bisa terhubung langsung ke jaringan seluler dengan kecepatan tinggi tanpa harus melalui iPhone terlebih dahulu. Sedangkan sebelumnya juga telah ada penambahan fungsi GPS ke generasi kedua Apple Watch.

Ini merupakan suatu terobosan besar buat keberadaan Apple Watch mengingat sebelumnya belum ada satupun generasi smartwatch dari Apple ini memiliki dukungan tersebut. Bahkan untuk mengirimkan pesan teks, streaming musik, membuat panggilan telepon dan sebagainya sekalipun.

Dukungan chip LTE built-in pada generasi ketiga Apple Watch atau yang dikenal sebagai Apple Watch Series 3 membuat Apple bakal bersiap menghadirkan model seluler dan non-seluler dengan banyak fungsi sama yang dapat dilakukan tanpa bergantung pada iPhone. Selain tidak hanya akan bagus untuk Apple dan pelanggannya, namun juga menguntungkan pihak Intel, yang kabarnya telah menandatangani kesepakatan untuk memasok modem LTE ke Apple.

Nama Intel sendiri pada dasarnya bukanlah pihak baru yang menjalin kesepakatan bersama Apple mengingat telah banyak produk desktop dan laptop besutan Apple yang memilki dukungan produk Intel. Meskipun begitu, Intel tampaknya juga harus mengakui keunggulan Qualcomm yang telah lama didapuk menjadi salah satu pemasok utama modem buat produk gadget mobile besutan Apple.

Pihak Apple saat ini telah membahas bersama operator nirkabel di Amerika Serikat dan Eropa tentang mendukung Apple Watch baru dengan konektivitas LTE. Sebagian besar operator terkemuka di Amerika Serikat akan mendukung perangkat tersebut, termasuk AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, dan Verizon.

Microsoft Edge got a decent update in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update -- the browser now supports extensions (though only a handful are available at launch), tab-pinning, drag-and-drop, swipe navigation and click-to-play Flash video. But is Edge ready to take on browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox? Not exactly. Edge does have a few tricks up its sleeve -- it's the only Windows browser that supports 1080p Netflix streaming and native Windows Hello integration -- but it still lacks.....

Next-generation gaming PCs put to the test

The rise of virtual-reality headsets, including the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, has led to a surprising arms race in gaming desktops, a category that's languished in the past few years. Adding fuel to the fire is a new generation of graphics cards, the most important component in a gaming or VR-ready PC. Nvidia has new desktops cards, led by the GeForce GTX 1080 (replacing the previous-generation 900-series cards). At around $600 in the US (which works out to £560, AU$815) it's reasonably...

Apple insists that iPad Pro is now a computer

There was a time when Apple CEO Tim Cook wasn't uplifted by tablet/laptop hybrids. Why, he even called the Microsoft Surface Book "diluted." Perhaps he's coming around to the idea that a computer is whatever you decide a computer is. I only mutter about this because Apple has just released an ad that suggests the iPad Pro is, indeed, a computer. Here we see it going through various transformations with the help of various, not entirely cheap, add-ons. The keyboard, for example, which can cost...
