Apple tops movie product placement list of 2014

We all know what it is as soon as we see it. The logos of beverage companies, clothing brands, and technology manufacturers popping up in our favorite movies and TV shows. It's product placement. Sometimes it's subtler than others and we don't notice as much, but it's still there. BrandChannel takes it upon themselves to name the brands that appear the most in the previous year's biggest Hollywood films, calling it the Brandcameo Product Placement Awards. The winner for 2014 should come as no surprise; it's Apple.

Reserve Strap charges your Apple Watch as you wear it

As Apple's "Spring Forward" media event draws even closer, and with it new details about the Apple Watch, headlines are being dominated by talk about how long the new smartwatch's battery will last, and how the device minimizes power usage when not being worn. While the Apple Watch's release is still a few weeks away, some accessory makers are getting an early start on debuting their items, including one that aims to address concerns about battery life. The Reverse Strap is a watchband that doubles as a charger for the Apple Watch, providing additional power while being worn.

Apple Watch might last the day (but not two days)

Apple Watch might last the day (but not two days)

Not long ago, the Apple Watch was rumored to have as little as 2.5 hours of on-time under heavy use. If you were relying on your watch for a lot of navigation notifications, that might keep you charging multiple times daily, in theory. Though ‘heavy use’ is a subjective term, the short battery span had some concerned. The Apple Watch was still a beta product at that point, though, so we didn’t put too much stock into that being the final word on battery life.

Apple Watch Edition contains new “Apple gold”

Apple Watch Edition contains new “Apple gold”

Apple is the sort of company to be so obsessive about the devices they create that they'd make their own type of metal to perfect them. That's what they do. They've already done it. Apple uses cold-forged steel in one iteration of their new Apple Watch. According to Jony Ive, they're also bringing their own specially-prepared gold to the smartwatch as well. Not that this new gold is anything you'd need a new magical alchemy to concoct - this is just a matter of preparation and process.

Apple reportedly aiming for paid iTunes streaming — no free option

Apple reportedly aiming for paid iTunes streaming — no free option

Remember the Taylor Swift/Spotify slap-fight? She yanked her music because the streaming service wasn’t paying enough, and they retorted she was making a ton of cash. It drug on for a bit, but she was ultimately right — streaming doesn’t pay artists enough, especially when it’s free for consumers. In discussing their new iTunes music streaming option, Apple execs are reportedly telling record labels to “get behind a paywall”. As such, their new service is not believed to offer any type of free tier.

Apple patent suggests next device lineup might be waterproof

Apple patent suggests next device lineup might be waterproof

There are lots of things that can go wrong with your phone. Drop it, and the screen might crack. Load too many apps, or too much media, and it might be sluggish. Both those scenarios often leave a phone usable, but dropping it in water typically sidelines the phone. With so many iPhones in the wild — and the clumsiness we as humans seem prone to — it seems reasonable that waterproofing them is a really good idea. A new Apple patent suggests that’s exactly what’s going to happen, too.

Apple to join ‘The Dow’ on March 18, replacing AT&T

In a move everyone saw coming, Apple has joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average, supplanting AT&T on the list.

Facebook and others tweak Apple Watch apps ahead of device launch

Facebook and others tweak Apple Watch apps ahead of device launch

Everyone knows how secretive Apple is. They usually do a very good job of keeping new products under wraps until launch, this side of drunken employees leaving prototype products in a bar. Apple is gearing up for the launch of its smartwatch (we will be bringing all the details of the watch when it launches) and ahead of that launch word is that Apple is letting some major companies tweak their apps before the watch launches.

Apple Watch has hidden diagnostics port (for now)

Apple Watch has hidden diagnostics port (for now)

Some interesting news about the Apple Watch has surfaced today, all of it revolving around a hidden diagnostic port available on the Apple smartwatch. This diagnostic port is said to contain a 6-dot brass contact array, which is inside of the bottom strap's connector slot groove. Sources have confirmed this port exists, but that's where the agreement among sources seems to end: one source has said that the port is used for diagnostic tasks (as you'd expect), but that it could theoretically be used for accessories after the watch launches. This has spurred speculation about so-called smart watch straps, but a different source has surfaced saying not to get your hopes up.
