How to sync podcasts with Apple Watch

podcast on watch

While you can sync music from your iPhone library to your Apple Watch, there is currently no way to sync podcasts, which is something Apple will likely address in a future update. In the meanwhile, podcast listeners must still be tethered to their iPhones to enjoy podcasts on the go with the help of Overcast, which apparently is the only podcast app with support for Apple Watch at this time. But again, it’s not really a solution as you have to have your iPhone nearby to listen to podcasts via Overcast on Apple Watch.

However, there is a workaround that allows you to sync podcasts with Apple Watch. Like all workarounds, it’s not very straightforward, and to be honest, a bit cumbersome, but if you want to listen to podcasts on your Apple Watch without an iPhone, this is currently your only option. In this post, we’ll show you how to sync podcasts with your Apple Watch…. Read the rest of this post here

The American Adaptation of Death Note Has its Director

Adam Wingard, the director best known for The Guest and You’re Next, has signed on to direct the American remake of Death Note.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wingard will start work on Death Note once he’s finished with his current project, The Woods. Both Shane Black and Gus Van Sant were previously rumoured to be connected to the flick.

The most recent draft of the script was written by Jeremy Slater, who’s also penned the screenplay for the Fantastic Four reboot. Whether this is the one Wingard chooses to go with remains to be seen.

Diamond-testing Apple Watch sapphire screen

Apple Watch sapphire diamond testing 001

After quite literally subjecting the Apple Watch Sport’s Ion-X glass to the knife in a  recent scratch test video, YouTuber ‘Unbox Therapy’ is back with another cool test.

This time around, he’s evaluating the Apple Watch’s sapphire-coated screen with a diamond tester and comparing it to the Apple Watch Sport, LG’s G Watch R, the iPhone 6 and a high-end analog watch by Tissot, which uses sapphire for protection.

He came away fairly impressed with Apple’s sapphire, concluding it does match those of classic sapphire watches. Sapphire, for those wondering, is the second-hardest transparent substance after diamond. Have a look at the video and tell us what you think in the comment section….

We Unbox The Talking Diablo Treasure Goblin Bank

There’s no creature that inspires both feelings of love and hate like the Treasure Goblin from Diablo. We love him when we manage to beat the living gold out of him, we hate him when he summons a portal and makes off with our loot. This Treasure Goblin from ThinkGeek, however, will never escape your grasp, or your desk, for that matter. Why? Well, he’s plastic, and he’s a bank, which giggles with demonic glee whenever you deposit your loose change. So weigh him down with your own personal gold (or copper, or nickel, he’s not that picky) so he can’t get away. That way you’ll always have some vending machine money on hand!

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Graphic Novel Review

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past holds up as one of the greatest video games ever made by Nintendo. But how does the comic adaptation, which originally ran in 1992 through the pages of Nintendo Power, fare compared to its video game counterpart? The republished graphic novel of Manga legend Shotaro Ishinomori’s work is a fantastic nostalgia trip, one that pays tribute to Zelda’s core themes of adventure and good versus evil. And, much like how the game is a stunning look back at ‘90s game design, the comic is a refreshing reminder of Japan’s manga scene during the same period.

From the stormy intro sequence to the inevitable discovery of Princess Zelda, the comic book adaptation of Zelda: A Link to the Past closely follows the game’s iconic introduction scene-for-scene. This is the case with the overall arc of the story, as well. As expected, Link has to rescue a princess, fight the evil sorcerer Agahim, collect three Pendants of Virtue, and jump headfirst into a greater conflict to save the mythical land of Hyrule.
