Embattled dating-for-cheaters website Ashley Madison insisted Monday that a massive hack and release of user data had not affected the site's prospects, with hundreds of thousands of new members -- including real women. Parent company Avid Life Media rejected an analysis by tech new site Gizmodo suggesting that most of the infidelity site's supposed 5.5 million female members were actually fake accounts, or created by automatic "bots". "Recent media reports predicting the imminent demise of Ashley Madison are greatly exaggerated," Avid Life Media, which is based in Toronto, said in a statement.

This of course leaves a lot of existing Android Wear owners that were hoping to pair the devices with an iPhone in the lurch, as Google is officially not supporting the Moto 360, LG G Watch, LG G Watch R, Samsung Gear Live, Asus ZenWatch, or Sony Smartwatch 3 on iOS.
