    New battery gobbles up carbon dioxide

    Apple Watch Series 4 Reviews are a Sad Reminder of How Lost Wear OS Is

    Apple announced its Apple Watch Series 4 a week ago and the early reviews that dropped this week are about as glowing as is possible. I’m not shocked by that either, because it was pretty obvious as Apple revealed their new watch that it was the most impressive hardware from their fall event.

    For the seventh time, the death penalty trial for a Louisville man charged with killing 15-year-old Gregory Holt in 2012 has been postponed – this time because a judge decided his attorneys have a conflict of interest.

The app, somewhat absurdly, launched without proper Android Auto or Cast support — and offered little else to recommend it, including no option for creating podcast playlists. Now, after addressing the Android Auto issue, the app is beginning to roll out support for Cast.
