A Classier Smartwatch: LG Watch Urbane


The following article is brought to you by The Tech Info Group. -Ed.

Introducing the LG Watch Urbane

A smartwatch that’s designed to appeal to timepiece connoisseurs.


Instead of a screen filled with computer-generated graphics, the elegant Urbane adopts a rounded, classic aesthetic. Vintage allure radiates from this detailed face as simulated hands turn with meticulous smoothness against the sheen of the stainless steel housing. The dial may indeed look classic, but powerful computerized innards dwell within. The LG Urbane is a popular technology wearable, specially here, in the west coast.

Must Have or Pass? LG Smart Light Bulb

LG Smart Light Bulb

There seems to be no shortage of “smart” gadgets and accessories, with the latest one being LG’s smart light bulb. Called the Smart Lamp, the 10W-LED bulb gives regular bulbs a run for their money. It connects via Bluetooth and WiFi to both Android and iOS devices so the user can tweak illumination without having to fiddle with the switch. It also comes with a light-based alarm clock and a security mode which lights it up to make it seem like someone’s home.

The Smart Lamp can also be programmed to flash whenever you get a phone call or set to pulse with the beat of the songs you’re listening to, if you’re on Android. The smart bulb is available in Korea 35,000 won ($32). No word yet on its release in the US.

Sponsored Video: LG Experiments With 3D Facebook Feed

The following article is sponsored by LG. – Ed.

Whether you like it or not, it looks like 3D display technology is here to stay. When well implemented, it actually adds to the experience, and more movies and TV shows are now coming out in 3D. I actually enjoyed Avatar in 3D, more so than in traditional flat mode. And while it’s also pretty obvious that some games benefit from the added dimension, one has to wonder what else can be done? LG has decided to start some experiments to answer that question. They created LG 3D Studios and in their debut project, they tackled the Facebook feed.

It took the form of an application which converts all the posts on your feed into three-dimensional stacks of varying heights. Each stack’s height and width is determined by the number of likes and comments, visually drawing your attention to the items that may warrant it most. If you select a particular stack, you can navigate the post using your hands and participate in the conversation with a connected keyboard.

Wondering what it looks like but don’t have a 3D TV? That’s alright, LG has made the app available for you to try out either in 3D or not. I just gave it a go, and it works just as it’s supposed to. If you like it and have ideas of your own on how and what LG could be doing with this particular app, just let them know: there’s a form for that on the app.

Deal Of The Day: $400 Off On 55 Inch LG LED TV

By David Ponce

It’s a little depressing to me personally to see prices like these, since I own a 55 inch TV but paid nowhere near the $999 this LG set is after the $400 in rebates. Granted this was over 2 years ago, but suffice it to say I’m still making monthly payments on it. But that’s the reality of the market and today you can have the 55LV3700, a 55 inch, 60Hz LED LCD HDTV that features full HD 1920 x 1080p LED LCD display, LED backlighting, NetCast Entertainment Access, 3,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and more.

Deal Of The Day: $540 Off 60 In LG Plasma TV

By David Ponce

This is where deals get interesting. Think about this for a minute. You’re staring at a 60 inch HDTV priced under $1k. Of course that’s after a generous $540 in rebates, but it’s still a gigantic sea of viewing pleasure for less than four figures. Of course it’s plasma and some people will tell you that’s aging technology. Be that as it may, it still produces awesome images and the only reason it’s losing ground to its LED counterparts is because of its relative bulk and power consumption. If you don’t mind either, you’ll get the LG 60PV250 60″ 1080p 600Hz Plasma HDTV that features 1920 x 1080 Resolution, 600Hz refresh rate, 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio and more.

For $959.

OhGizmo! Quick Review – The LG Flatron E2290, World’s Thinnest Monitor

By David Ponce

For the last couple weeks I’ve been reviewing the LG Flatron E2290, billed as the world’s thinnest monitor. Let me tell you, it’s really, really thin. And unlike overly skinny fashion models, thin is in for monitors. At just a hair over 0.25 inches, the thing nearly disappears when viewed sideways. It’s covered in a chrome finish and has mostly rounded edges. The base is wide and solid, and covered in touch sensitive buttons to access the OnScreen Display (OSD). The OSD is comprehensive and one of the best I’ve seen in a monitor.

As you can see in the pictures, the E2290 simply looks great. But how does it perform? We don’t have the equipment to perform accurate color and brightness measurements, but I can attest to the fact that it makes the image on my previous monitor look as bad as monochrome CRTs. Blacks are deep and uniform and whites are very bright. The horizontal viewing angle is very wide and there is very little color distortion as you move from side to side. The distortion is a little more pronounced on the vertical but still very acceptable. It features a native resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 and has DVI, VGA and HDMI connectors which are in the base rather than on the monitor itself. The are recessed by about 2 inches, making accessing them a little difficult. But this has to be done only once so it isn’t a huge issue. The response time is a very good 2ms.

It’s a 21.5 inch display and costs about $350. This is a premium over similarly sized models, but given the device’s aesthetics and performance, we feel it’s not unreasonable. If you have a living/working space that is already sleek and modern and are looking for a monitor that will fit right in, this is your choice.

LG Optimus 7, A Windows Phone 7 Dissected

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG. All opinions are 100% mine.

By David Ponce

There’s been a lot of talk lately about Windows Phone 7, though we haven’t ourselves really pointed out any one handset in particular.  It’s time we did, and the LG Optimus 7 is a prime example. In this short article we’re going to go over a few of the salient features and specs on this phone, mindful that it’s running the newest kid on the block operating system, Windows Phone 7.

The LG Optimus 7 has some impressive hardware. Aside from its 720p video recording, it boasts a 5MP digital camera with “Intelligent Shot, which lets users take the perfect photo without having to adjust camera settings, and Panoramic Mode for stitching together a full 360-degree landscape scene.” There’s 16GB internal memory, along with a generous 1500mAh battery and a 3.8inch WVGA LCD display with an 800X480 pixel resolution.

But hardware isn’t everything.  On the software front, you have to remember that if Microsoft does everything right, it will be able to integrate its many services and create a seamless experience.  This means Xbox Live and Zune integration.  As the press release says: “Consumers will have direct access to their favorite games and music, bringing all entertainment devices together for more convenient enjoyment.”

We could go on for a bit about the LG Optimus 7, but we’ll stop here. Suffice it to say, the new kid on the block comes with lots of shining features and LG does a great job of taking advantage of everything available.  Whether this will translate into solid sales and catch up to Android, Blackberry and iOS remains to be seen, and here’s hoping we don’t see another “Kin” story…
