Aereo getting Chromecast support on May 29

The best in streaming entertainment, from the experts.

Aereo

People lucky enough to have Aereo might say the service couldn’t get much better. But it’s about to, as Aereo announced Thursday that it’s adding Chromecast support to its Android app starting May 29.

Aereo, if you’re unfamiliar, is a cloud-based antenna and DVR technology. Users lease a tiny antenna from Aereo, which lets them access live over-the-air TV and record shows to Aereo’s cloud-based DVR. That live and recorded content is then streamed to the users’ Internet-connected devices, including computers and iOS and Android phones and tablets.

Aereo’s array of tiny antennas—each one smaller than a dime and used by only one customer. 

Getting those streams to your TV is then your problem. You can send Aereo streams from Mobile Safari on an iPhone or iPad to your Apple TV over AirPlay, or use Aereo’s private Roku channel. Or you could return to caveman days and connect your computer or mobile device to your TV with an unsightly cord.

The Chromecast is an HDMI stick you control with a number of apps, including Aereo for Android as of May 29.

Chromecast support will let Aereo users cast their live and recorded shows to a Chromecast-equipped TV, using an updated version of the Aereo app for Android. The $35 Chromecast streaming HDMI stick is the lowest-priced option for wirelessly streaming Aereo content to a TV, which should make it attractive to Aereo’s customers, who pay only $8 a month for access to the company’s cloud-based antenna and 20 hours of DVR storage.

Aereo currently serves 11 U.S. cities, with plans to expand to others this year. But the company is also fighting lawsuits from broadcasters who argue the service should count as a public performance of their content, which would violate copyright law. Aereo counters that because each user leases a separate antenna, each stream is really a private performance. Most courts have so far sided with Aereo—but not all. Aereo recently had to suspend service in Denver and Salt Lake City after a court order from the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. The Superme Court has agreed to hear one case against Aereo, with arguments scheduled for April 22.

Why Japanese watchmakers have no time for smartwatches

If the Rufus Cuff smartwatch is anything to go by, some people want a lot of hardware on their wrists.

The crowdfunded watch is truly massive: 8 centimeters wide, with a 3-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi, GPS and other features that make it seem like a smartphone strapped to your arm. The $279 behemoth might look unwieldy to some, but backers love it. They’ve pledged over $230,000 to Rufus Cuff’s Indiegogo fundraising campaign, more than meeting its goal of $200,000.

From grassroots campaigns to big manufacturers like Samsung, Sony and possibly Apple, smartwatches are starting to compete with traditional timepieces for wrist real-estate. The smartwatch industry was worth about $700 million in 2013 and is expected to reach $2.5 billion this year, according to Zurich-based research firm Smartwatch Group.

It seems like everyone’s getting in on the game—everyone, that is, except major watchmakers in Japan who have prided themselves on innovation, revolutionizing the industry in the 1970s and 1980s with quartz wristwatches.

It’s certainly not for lack of high-tech chops. At the Baselworld watch trade show in Switzerland earlier this month, Casio showed off its latest designs for its super-rugged G-Shock brand.

The G-Shock Gravitymaster ensures it’s showing the right time by picking up terrestrial radio signals as well as satellite GPS signals. Other G-Shocks are also connected, but to mobile devices. The DJ turntable-inspired G’Mix uses Bluetooth links to control music playback on a smartphone or to receive the correct time from a phone.

G-Shocks are evolving, and can still take the hard knocks they were designed to withstand when the brand was inaugurated 31 years ago. But while some Casio watches have smartwatch-like features, Casio sees a clear divide between its timepieces and wearable computers.

“As long as a watch can provide a new convenience to customers, we’ll aggressively pursue new technology to be incorporated into the watch,” said Shinji Saito, a product planner at Casio’s Hamura R&D Center in Tokyo where G-Shocks are put through punishing tests.

“But the bottom line is, a watch is a watch and we think it should be able to display time whenever customers glance at their wrists.”

The idea of having to recharge a smartwatch’s battery for it to tell the time doesn’t sit well with Casio, which launched its first wristwatch, the digital Casiotron, 40 years ago.

Swiss watchmakers have also scoffed at power-hungry wrist computers, with TAG Heuer CEO Stéphane Linder telling The Financial Times, “The idea of having to charge luxury watches kills the dream a bit.”

Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek has his own reservations about the smartwatch craze, recently commenting that he doesn’t think fans of wristwatches would enjoy having to do frequent software updates that smartwatches can require.

Meanwhile, there were virtually no smartwatches on display at the Baselworld trade fair.

Current smartwatches on the market are smartphone wannabes and are trying to copy their functions, Casio’s Saito said. He believes their ultimate goal is to become a smartphone for the wrist—not unlike the Rufus Cuff.

Japan’s other major watchmakers also produce dazzlingly cutting-edge timepieces, but smartwatches are a non-starter for them.

Seiko has evolved its Astron, which debuted in 1969 as world’s first quartz watch, into a GPS-linked, solar-powered device that supposedly loses only one second every 100,000 years.

The manufacturer, which brought Japan’s first wristwatch to market a century ago, has promoted accuracy and advanced features across its mechanical, quartz, kinetic and solar movements. But it has no plans for a smartwatch, and wants to focus on watches that impart passion, reliability and beauty, a Seiko spokeswoman said.

Citizen’s latest flagship, the Satellite Wave F100, also synchronizes with orbiting timekeepers. The company said it spent two years developing a new movement to shorten the satellite signal reception time, claimed to be the fastest in the world, by one second.

Citizen is a diversified manufacturer that also makes digital blood pressure monitors, thermometers and pedometers. But it has no time for the smartwatch fad.

“Rather than being a watchmaking process, smartwatches are like making iPhones or computers,” a Citizen spokeswoman said. “Our basic stance is that we want to produce watches, and that’s why we don’t make smartwatches.”

PushBullet sends your phone’s notifications to a computer.

PushBullet is a rather useful app. It displays the notifications from your Android phone or tablet on your desktop, and lets you “push” links or messages from one to the other. The newest update is especially helpful for those with a Windows PC, as text copied on the desktop can be pasted to your Android device.

The new feature is available with the version 14.7 update to those who have installed the PushBullet software on Windows. The team says it is working to bring this same functionality to the Mac. There are also Chrome and Firefox extensions, but neither of those support the feature.

PushBullet’s Ryan Oldenburg demos the feature in a video, copying a web link and pasting it into WhatsApp. 

This could be a pretty powerful feature, especially for anyone who frequently uses two-step authentication codes when logging into accounts or want to share content they find online with others through their phone. 

The full PushBullet changelog lists the following:

Copy text on one of your devices (or computers) and paste it on a different one.Copy links on your PC and paste them into WhatsApp or text messagesCopy two-factor auth codes on your phone and paste them on your computerAnd so many more usesCurrently works with Android devices and Windows computers via the Pushbullet Windows app (our browser extensions aren’t able to offer this feature).More supported platforms coming ASAP!

Thank XP: Desktop PC sales take off again in Western Europe

PC sales in Western Europe have risen after 13 consecutive quarters of decline, according to market research company Gartner. The market research company said government spending and the replacement of machines running Windows XP contributed to the growth.

Across the whole of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, PC sales grew by 0.3 percent after eight quarters of decline.

PC shipments in the region totaled 22.9 million units during the first quarter, compared to 22.8 million in the first quarter of 2013. The impending end of support for Windows XP boosted commercial sales, while delayed government buying in large western European countries also helped, according to Gartner.

“Funnily enough the growth was driven by desktops. The main reason is that a lot of enterprises and smaller and mid-sized companies in Europe are lagging behind with the migration from Windows XP,” said Meike Escherich, principal analyst at Gartner.

Manufacturers and resellers won’t be able to live off the migration from Windows XP in the long term, but in a PC market that has been struggling for two years as a result of the growing interest in smartphones and tablets, it will provide a welcome boost for a few of quarters to come, according to Escherich.

The economic situation in Europe is also improving, and business and governments are adjusting their spending to match. However, not all segments looked as good as commercial sales of desktops. The notebook market was stagnant, and sales to consumers were sluggish, Escherich said.

Hewlett-Packard held on to the largest share of the market: Its shipments grew by 15.3 percent year-on-year. Lenovo cemented its number-two spot as sales increased by 35.6 percent. The company has now had seven consecutive quarters of strong growth, Gartner said. Acer retained the third place even though its sales dropped by 2.7 percent.

“Companies who specialize in the business segment like HP and Fujitsu, for example, did much better than the pure consumer vendors like Acer,” Escherich said.

Worldwide PC shipments fell by 1.7 percent to 76.6 million units. Lenovo, HP and Dell were the three largest vendors, Gartner said.
