No-wires Beats, Dark Knight, Watch emergency services


Apple’s Beats debuts celebrity-laden ad promoting new wireless headphones — Apple-owned Beats has premiered a new video ad on Twitter, promoting the brand’s latest wireless headphones: the BeatsX, Solo3 Wireless, and Powerbeats3 Wireless. Set to the Pinocchio song I’ve Got No Strings by Disney —a major Apple business partner — the ad otherwise features a montage of celebrities wearing the products, including musicians DJ Khaled, Pharrell Williams, and Nicki Minaj, and actors Rebel Wilson and Steve Buscemi.

Decide the Dark Knight’s fate in the compelling Batman: The Telltale Series — Telltale’s choose-your-own-adventure game approach has become a formula, but it’s a reliably strong one that seems to work with nearly any kind of story. It really soared with The Walking Dead, which has spanned two core seasons (with a third starting next month) and a spinoff mini-series, but has since been applied to everything from Game of Thrones to Minecraft: Story Mode. Now The Dark Knight is the star of his own Telltale series: a five-part affair that lets you play as both Batman and Bruce Wayne as you navigate an original storyline that deviates sharply from the classic comic narratives.

Fox ’toon characters in game — The Quest for Cards uses some truly surprising source material: the characters and jokes from five different Fox cartoon series. [Isn’t Trump a Fox cartoon character?]

How to get help in an emergency with your Apple Watch — Apple Watch has SOS feature in watchOS 3. Unfortunately, this only works if your iPhone is nearby. If it is, you can call emergency services this way: press and hold the side button on your watch until the Emergency SOS slider appears.
Continue to hold down the side button. Wait for a countdown to begin and an alert to sound. You can also drag the Emergency SOS slider.
When the countdown ends, your watch automatically calls emergency services. [Does anyone know if this works in New Zealand? I don’t have an Apple Watch.]
