Apple Watch hits Vogue cover with Liu Wen

Apple Watch hits Vogue cover with Liu Wen

It’s become clear that at least one of the publicity directions the Apple Watch will be going in is fashionable. The "editorial debut" of the Apple Watch in China will be with Vogue China, complete with a cover story and modeling by supermodel Liu Wen. We previously caught Liu Wen and the watch last month, finding her credentials powerful then as well - one of the top-paid models in the world, having worked with Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Victoria’s Secret in the relatively recent past - and likely the future as well.

Hydrophobic shirt confirmed: hands-on with Threadsmiths first tee

At first it seems like magic - but it's very real. And really quite awesome, as well.

One for the "Enlightened" side of the game, the other from the "Resistance."

What possible reason would Apple have for making an iPad with a display larger than the standard iPad/iPad Air size they’ve got today? Surely they can’t be serious?

ZTE may buy Pantech: product designs revealed

Surprise - one company may buy another in the near future. Bet you didn’t see that coming. In a set of papers that detail the possible purchase of Pantech by the company ZTE, they’ve also revealed what their future products might look like together. Pantech may very well be making these products one way or another, but would that they were purchased by a larger company, we’d go ahead and guess that they’d have the cash they need to move forward a lot easier.
