No, wearables aren’t dead, although Fitbit could use a boost

TwitterFacebook

With the downfall of Pebble late last year, it looked like the wearables market could be in trouble. 

Nope. It hit an all-time high with 33.9 million units shipped in the fourth quarter of 2016, growing 16.9 percent year over year, according to the latest data from analytics firm IDC. 

The report revealed the diverging paths of two of the most recognizable names in the game: Fitbit and Apple. 

Fitbit held onto its perch atop the wearables food chain, but it’s slipping. Meanwhile, the Apple Watch had its most successful showing since entering the space in April 2015. It’s a big reversal from Apple’s decline in Q3 2016 — and it shows the wearables market could be in the midst of another shift.     Read more…

‘Jessica Jones’ season 2 reaches Netflix on March 8th

To say that the second season of Jessica Jones has been a long time in coming would be an understatement. Netflix premiered the first season of the investigator-turned-superhero show in November 2015, and it committed to a second season at the start of 2016. At last, though, it's nearly here: Netflix has posted a trailer confirming that season 2 will premiere on March 8th, 2018. The preview hints that the new season will dive deeper into Jessica's nebulous past, and that she continues to take no crap -- there's a not-so-subtle dig at Spider-Man, for one thing.

The return helps flesh out Netflix's Marvel catalog, which still includes a number of single-season shows (although they almost all have commitments for more episodes). Also, it's arguably one of the more anticipated Marvel releases to date. In addition to starring an unconventional superhero, the first Jessica Jones season tackled serious topics like gaslighting and sexual assault with an intelligence you wouldn't necessarily expect. If that keeps up in the second season, it could be worth watching even if you don't normally care for comic-inspired programming.
