Apple grabs YSL exec for “special projects”: Making iWatch fashionable?

Apple has hired former Yves St Laurent Group CEO Paul Deneve as vice president of "special projects", though no indication of what those project might entail has been given. The fashion industry stalwart - who before YSL was chief exec at Lanvin and Nina Ricci - is in fact making his return to Apple, having worked for the company in Europe in the 1990s, Bloomberg reports. Unsurprisingly, the fashion house hire has prompted speculation that Deneve's expertise in luxury goods will help shape future Apple wearables, like the much-rumored iWatch.

Apple dynamic display-bezel tech could liberate iWatch and iPad mini

Apple dynamic display-bezel tech could liberate iWatch and iPad mini

Apple is exploring active phone and tablet bezels that would be able to dynamically change between giving a place to grip and extending the interface, maximizing the potential display space for small-screen devices that possibly includes the iWatch. The research, detailed in a new Apple patent for "Electronic device, display and touch-sensitive user interface", centers around a layered stack of displays and touch sensors around one or more edges of a device, which could selectively be activated for input use, or deactivated - and optically-blanked, obscuring any controls underneath - when not needed.

Apple continues to quietly hunt down trademarks for iWatch in multiple markets, with the Japanese filing spotted this weekend followed by similar applications in Russia, Taiwan, Mexico, and Turkey.

Apple patents curved battery: space saving for iWatch

Apple patents curved battery: space saving for iWatch

Now that Tim Cook has effectively paved the way - without saying so - for Apple to create wearable devices in the near or distant future, the appearance of a so-called "curved battery" in the US Patent office isn't all that much of a surprise. While it's not a guarantee of any bit or piece of technology using this battery any time soon - Apple often patents technology without using it, ever - it does open some rather interesting miniature doors of possibility.

iWatch concept is what the iWatch should be

iWatch concept is what the iWatch should be

A new concept has been released for Apple's pending iWatch accessory, and we've got to say, it looks pretty acceptable. The concept was created by MacUser Magazine, and it shows a mini iPad mini plastered onto a leather band. The design is supposed to emphasize a conventional iWatch that's also stylish. While I do like the look of the iPad mini-esque display, I would much prefer a black band to a brown band.
