Standard watch strap for Apple Watch

Standap

Apple Watch is coming this year. It’s really nice looking and has a wide selection of bands, but it uses a proprietary plug that doesn’t allow you to mount the strap you prefer.

Watch straps usually comes in standard sizes, like 20mm or 22mm, and they can fit (almost) any watch, why shouldn’t you be able to install your favorite one on an Apple Watch?

That’s what Standap is for. Standap stands for “Standard strap” and is able to connect an Apple Watch to a standard watch band.

How? Well, it’s quite simple, just look at the photos; one side of Standap plugs into the Apple Watch, and the other one offers the classic plugs where you can install your standard strap. Standap is basically an adapter between the Apple Watch and your watch band.

Standap it’s still an idea, but I’d love to be able to bring it to life when Apple Watch is out; that’s why I’m running a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo.

If you’re interested in Standap, please help me by donating or pre-ordering your Standap (included with every donation if it’s 25€ or more).

Don’t worry, you won’t loose your money: if not enough money is collected, every amount you donated is given back to you. That’s the “All or nothing” model which most crowdfunding campaign are based on.

Fusion Drive sul mio MacBook Pro 8.1 Late 2011

Due drive separati visti come uno

Due drive separati visti come uno

Fusion Drive consiste in un disco logico composto da due dischi fisici, un hard disk classico e un SSD, combinati per ottenere prestazioni molto vicine a quelle di un vero SSD ma uno spazio di archiviazione molto maggiore (ovvero la somma delle capacità di entrambi i dischi).

Mi sembrava doveroso provare questa tecnologia sul mio MacBook Pro 8.1.

Translate your Pebble menu interface

Some Pebble translated menus

Some Pebble translated menus

If you own a Pebble, you know that its interface is in English.

If you prefer it to be in your main language, you can now localize it!

I made an iOS app which enables you to install different languages to your Pebble, it supports all hardware versions and it’s really easy to setup.

Pebble Translation enables you to localize your Pebble interface in French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and more languages are coming with new releases.

Emoji support on notifications for Pebble and Pebble Steel

Pebble with EmojiWe all know that Pebble is really handy when using messages, WhatsApp and in general when comunicating with friends; it allows us to read the message without the need to take the phone, but it has one limit: it does not display emojis, the emoticons that are present on almost every phone (the ones you can find in WhatsApp, for example!).

Now, it does!

Pebble custom firmware ITA – aggiornato a 2.1

Pebble in italiano

Pebble in italiano

Pebble è un ottimo smartwatch, ma molto semplice. Questa semplicità porta, tra le altre cose, all’impossibilità di selezionare la lingua.

L’app di Pebble non controlla l’originalità dei file pbz che vengono caricati, quindi è possibile creare dei firmware modificati e installarli direttamente dall’applicazione ufficiale!

Ho realizzato quindi un custom firmware per il Pebble in italiano.
