Apple Watch shipments have reportedly been cut in half

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Last we heard, Apple had placed a large Apple Watch order ahead of its April release. That showed confidence in its new product, and meant if you wanted to partake in Apple’s smartwatch future, you’d have no problem finding a unit. A fresh report out of Taiwan, however, claims Apple has actually cut shipments in half, suggesting the company’s upcoming wearable will be harder to find than we initially thought.


But it’s not because Apple isn’t confident its wearable will be popular. Instead, sources within Apple’s supply chain claim that the Watch’s display is to blame. Apple originally planned on manufacturing between 2.5 and 3 million units every month, but due to manufacturing issues with its display, Apple has instead lowered expectations to 1.25-1.5 million units.


Out of the whole of last year, only 750,000 Android Wear devices shipped, while Pebble just recently celebrated its 1 millionth smartwatch sold. Apple is forecasting its device beyond both of those figures, and believes its fans will be quick to adopt the wearable. With a starting price of $349, Apple is already pricing itself above the competition, so I’ll be very curious to see how the device performs over its first weekend of availability.


Will there be lines? Will they sell out? Apple is giving customers every opportunity to try the Apple Watch out ahead of the April 24 release, giving consumers plenty of time to make up their minds before it goes on sale.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
