As Apple Watch lands, Samsung teases round smartwatch

Culture
Thousands of Apple watch apps have landed but not all of them make sense. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNet update The very first Apples Watches are now being delivered to customers, landing on the doorsteps of the Apply faithful that preordered online two weeks ago. They were up at the wee hours of the morning to be among the very first with a new iPhone accessory. But even some of the first to preorder may still be waiting a few more weeks for it to arrive. Many customers are facing long wait times. And if you go online to buy one today you could be waiting until July. The Apple Watch App store is now live with more than 3,000 apps. Keep in mind, most of these apps have been created by developers who have not owned or lived with an Apple Watch. Now, anyone with an updated iPhone can browse the store. It's located inside the Apple Watch app. These watch apps are in categories, such as healthy living, games, news, work Yes, you can do work on the Watch. Like, keep a to-do list, or control your power point slides from the Watch screen. There are also apps for cooking or ordering food and going shopping. You know, in case you wanted to Shop on Amazon or Etsy on your wrist. Yeah, obviously, not everything makes sense as a watch app, but all the big app makers are experimenting while the hype is hot. Samsung is also working the Apple hype. It just announced a new Smart Watch. Well, we don't know much beyond this teaser of a round screen. This would be the first round screen Smart Watch from Samsung Which already has sold six other smartwatches. And in other news relating to gadgets you can wear on your body, a new version of the Google Glass will be out soon. That's right, Glass isn't going away. The chief executive of eyewear maker, Luxottica, said so during a company meeting in Italy. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the CEO confirmed that Luxottica is working with Google to build the next version of Glass. You see, the first version of glass is no longer sold. Google announced it was putting it under new management, moving the head gear out of the research lab. Switching gears to cable news, Comcast has officially cancelled it's 45 billion dollar merger plan for Time Warner Cable Comcast was facing opposition from U.S. regulators. The company said in a statement that the deal was structured so if the government did not agree, Comcast could walk away. The merger may be dead, but the cable market is still in a state of flux trying to keep up with changing consumer demands. Cablevision just announced it's offering a Cord cutter package for Optimum. It's internet service that comes with a digital antennae to watch broadcast channels over a tuner. But you can still stream content online from sources like Netflix. Now when will we get a cable package for watching tv on a smart watch? That's your tech news update. You can head over to CNet.com for more. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
