Living With: Apple Pay on London Underground

09/14, 7:04am

From ooooh to oh, come on

It's been available for a few weeks now, but today we used Apple Pay on the Tube, London's Underground train network. We did it using our Apple Watches, and we will never do it any other way again. Well, not until the next previously-unimaginable technology comes along. For now, though, that's it: try it once, and never go back. It is as simple and as obvious as that.


The Tube 2.6 gets new EPG engine

04/10, 3:55pm

The Tube

equinux has released The Tube 2.6 with a completely reengineered EPG engine. Users can now choose between different electronic program guide (EPG) plug-ins and automatically update TV information even when they're imported from alternative EPGs in the XMLTV format. The Tube 2.6 automatically updates the electronic program guide (EPG) twice a day and therefore always provides users with the latest TV listings. To open the application to third-party providers of TV listings, The Tube now has a new plug-in structure to allow users to choose between different television guides. The Tube was the first Mac application to add support for the open XMLTV standard for TV listings. The Tube 2.6 can also handle automatic XMLTV-updates in the same way as it automatically updates TV listings via DTT (DVB-T).

Nokia Tube Spotted

Nokia's vaunted Tube cellphone may not be the company's flagship phone and will have a limited touchscreen, according to leaked info at Symbian Freak. The device, now said to fall outside of the expected Nseries line, is claimed to lack support for any controls similar to multi-touch on its roughly 3.2-inch display and is shown with a matching stylus, suggesting the device may need help from a pen rather than operating solely from fingers, as with its target at Apple.
