i’mWatch is Like an iPhone For Your Wrist – Easily the Coolest Watch Ever



The new Italian i’mWatch describes itself as a “technological jewel” – it is currently the closest you’ll get to having an iPhone on your wrist, and it’s by far the coolest wristwatch I’ve ever seen. Featuring a high-resolution touchscreen, the i’mWatch lets you receive calls, text messages, notifications from Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, and so much more.

Browsing through the list of its plethora of features makes you wonder whether you would ever need to take your iPhone out of your pocket:

  • Receive calls and see you caller’s name and number
  • Make calls using the keypad or your iPhone’s address book
  • Receive text messages and emails
  • See the weather forecast for your city
  • See your Facebook news feed
  • Receive notifications from Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare
  • Download music from the i’music store
  • Listen to the radio
  • Download apps from the i’m store
  • View your iPhone’s photo collection, arranged by album
  • View stock market data
  • Receive notifications for Calendar appointments and reminders

Adium 1.4 for Mac Adds Twitter Support and More



The best multi-IM client on the Mac got a meaty update over the weekend and now at version 1.4, Adium is quacking louder and prouder than ever before.

The biggest new feature in Adium 1.4 is Twitter support. I have to say, having played around with it, it’s not about to replace YoruFokurou as my go-to Twitter client. Like IRC support for it before it, Adium’s trying to shoehorn functionality in that doesn’t really fit. Adium’s Twitter implementation simply crams your timeline of Tweets into an always-open IM window, like a big group chat. That might work for some with more manageable Twitter contact lists, but for me, I quickly turned off Adium’s Twitter support.

There’s more to the new Adium than Twitter support too. It also gains full IRC support, improved group chat, bookmarks for persistent chats and many other tweaks and fixes. You’ll need OS X 10.5.8 or greater, and the new version is roughly a 25MB download.
