“Wrist-Gate II”: Apple Watch Activation On Wrist Raise Not Working In Vertical Turn

Apple Watch Sport Space Gray Aluminium Case 42 mm Black Sport BandApple Watch activation on wrist raise is not working in the vertical turn, demonstrated with an Apple Watch Sport with 42 mm Space Gray Aluminium Case and Black Sport Band (product number MJ3T2LL). Apple is describing the activation on wrist raise with “From the moment you wake the display with a simple raise of the wrist, you’ll be comfortable using Apple Watch”. That’s not entirely true: The activation on wrist raise is solely working the horizontal turn. However, it completely fails in any other direction.

AirPlay: AirServer 1.1.8 And 1.9 Beta Running Better On Windows 8 (But Still Not Perfectly)

AirServer IconSome months ago I tested Airserver 1.1.2 on Windows 8 with less success. AirServer 1.1.2 has been running unsteadily on Windows 8 Pro with too many connection breakdowns. Now there are two new versions released: Airserver 1.1.8 and Airserver 1.9 beta. Here are my findings, tested with my iPhone 4S and iPad 4th generation: The stability is improved, but from time to time you got still some connection breakdowns again. However, the number in total is less. The transfer speed of AirPlay mirroring is still good. It seems to me that AirServer needs less memory and CPU power of my Windows 8 PC as AirServer version 1.1.2.
