Apple Watch could be your Smart Home helper

Could home automation integration be the most useful feature of the Apple Watch? Showing off the new smartwatch during Apple's keynote in San Francisco today, the Cupertino firm put on a demo of how third-party apps - in this case from home security firm Alarm.com - could integrate with the wearable, and give easier access to things like lighting, doors, and garages.

It seems that Apple has been listening and a leaked email to its iPad for education customers reveal that the storms of change are coming.

Ive’s Logic: larger iPhone battery will make you use it less

Ive’s Logic: larger iPhone battery will make you use it less

There's a growing trend when it comes to our smartphones and battery life. As our devices get more sophisticated, their uptimes get conversely smaller. There are two immediate ways to get around this hunger for power. You either start bringing along power banks or power cases, or you hope that your OEM starts putting in larger batteries, in which case the smartphone itself gets larger. Apple, however, isn't giving in to the trend and is keeping its smaller, non-removable batteries. Why? Because you wouldn't want to a larger battery. Or so says Apple's Jonathan Ive.

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.

But there is still a class of people that want to get the best of both worlds, like this latest hack that puts Apple's latest operating system inside a Cintiq Companion 2 tablet, though not everything is fine and dandy just yet.
