“W” that came in our life last decade

Here we reach to explore what letter W has given us in our daily lives-

 

Woke

While it’s sometimes used in a sarcastic sense, getting called “woke” is usually a compliment. It means you’re knowledgeable, sympathetic, and aware, especially when it comes to contentious debates around race and gender.

Woke‘ is increasingly used as a byword for social awareness.

Worstest

Definition: worst in emphatic use.

 

Alphabet, 3D Albhabet, Letters, Color

The gadgets that just started ruling our lives from W are-

Smart Watches

Till then we knew only watches, ya gadget kinda watches were there but they were like stylish with lots of functions, the smartwatches came as a revolution.

Apple’s smartwatch is a significant upgrade from watches that once adorned the wrists of James Bond. The rise of smartwatches during the 2010s added one more screen to our oeuvre of gadgets, we’re probably better for it.

After all, it’s a ton of fun to speak into your wrist like you’re a spy.

Apple Watch, launched in 2015, played a crucial role in the re-emergence of watches as a mainstream accessory.

PEBBLE SMARTWATCH (2013)\

No device captured the post-smartphone boom of the early 2010s quite like the Pebble smartwatch. A Kickstarter gadget wholly dependent on a world increasingly filling up with Bluetooth-equipped iPhone owners, the Pebble promised to deliver the wrist computer we so often saw in science fiction. And for a while, it did. The device was beloved by early adopters, even while the company’s operations were marred by production delays and the other harsh realities of manufacturing hardware. Pebble eventually fell victim to a more consolidated and powerful tech industry intent on owning the smartwatch space. By the time the Apple Watch arrived in 2015, Pebble was on its last legs. A year later, Fitbit acquired the company and, in 2018, it discontinued all support for the platform. Pour one out for the original. —Nick Statt
