AirWatch takes mobile device management to the next level Print E-mail
Monday, 08 February 2016
AirWatch 8.1 is a sophisticated control plane for mobile devices that meets the needs of large enterprises. It stacks up well against other MDM apps we’ve tested, and features container demarcation plus elements of data loss prevention. AirWatch controls end user access to applications and other resources like email, and works across a wide variety of phone, tablet, and notebook/desktop devices. For some device platforms, containerization can be managed by policy, down to the level of permitting or denying things like built-in camera activation. A VMware unit, AirWatch has the advantage of being completely autonomous from the big sellers of phones and their carriers, and it also boasts third-party...

AfterShokz Bone Conduction Headphones Capsule Review Print E-mail
Monday, 08 February 2016
Headphones are not a category we usually cover at AnandTech, and even when we do, it is restricted to gaming headsets. In my CES visits over the last several years, I have been fortunate to have a bit of spare time to go around the show floor and look at the various interesting gadgets about to make an appearance in the market. Many of these gadgets are, like headphones, only tangentially related to our core coverage areas. AfterShokz is one of the companies that has managed to grab my attention several times on the CES show floor. Their product is quite unique - bone conduction headphones that do not require something placed right over the ears to experience sound. Right since the introduction of the...

The Pirate Bay now lets you stream torrents from your browser Print E-mail
Monday, 08 February 2016
The best-known torrent site in the world now streams pirated content too. The Pirate Bay has added support for Torrents Time, a plugin that lets users stream torrents directly inside their browser. There's no need to download the torrent itself, or a BitTorrent client, or even the actual content — then lets the whole process run inside Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Chrome, on either Windows or OS X. The system is currently in beta at the moment, and has all the usual problems of pirated torrents (namely bad image quality and the need to wait for peers to seed the content), but it's still an extremely simple system. Torrents Time can be added to any site Torrents Time itself was only released at...

Sunday, 07 February 2016
The Super Bowl isn’t meant to be streamed, but there are a lot of people who want to stream the Super Bowl, anyway.

Watch the X-Men: Apocalypse Super Bowl trailer Print E-mail
Sunday, 07 February 2016
The first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer served to introduce the titular new baddie (played by Oscar Isaac). In contrast, the Super Bowl spot is way more focused on teasing the summer blockbuster's big action moments: a bevy of surface-to-air missiles launching from a field. A city being destroyed by unclear forces. Olivia Munn (as Psylocke) cutting a car in half. And in the tradition of environmental destruction films, the soundtrack is an old Coldplay song (Don't Panic) slowed down and sung by Clarity. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters May 27th.
