Apple Watch may have already beaten Android Wear

Apple Watch may have already beaten Android Wear

Canalys says about 720,000 Android Wear devices have been shipped. Of those watches, the Moto 360 is ‘the clear leader’ in the clubhouse, with the G Watch R from LG also making an impact versus its squared sister device. Their findings are interesting, but the caveat is ‘shipped’ versus ‘sold’. We know the two don’t directly correlate (we saw that with Samsung tablets). Now I'm starting to wonder if the Apple Watch has already beaten Android Wear, without ever having seen the inside of an Apple Store.

Apple looks for partnerships to thwart leaks

Apple looks for partnerships to thwart leaks

People get really, really excited about Apple products. So much so, that rumors sometimes dominate the discussion ahead of the actual launch of the device. As awesome as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are, their launch was a touch anticlimactic, since we’d already seen the two devices leaked to death. According to a new report, we may not get to see as much info ahead of time, as Apple may have asked accessory makers to get their info directly from Apple ahead of making cases or other accessories.

Apple’s new California solar farm will turn their stores, campus green

In an attempt to go completely green with their operations in California, Apple is building a solar farm in Monterrey County. The $850 million project will span 1,300 acres, and feed enough power to the grid to offset everything Apple does in California. Their 50-plus retail stores, new campus, existing offices, and data center in Newark — all offset by this solar farm. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the new solar farm today as he spoke at Goldman Sachs Technology conference, and called it Apple’s ‘most ambitious project ever’.

Affinity Photo takes on Photoshop, currently in beta for OS X

Affinity Photo takes on Photoshop, currently in beta for OS X

If you want to edit photos like a pro, the term ‘Photoshop’ has become as synonymous with doing so as ‘Google’ is to searching the Internet for stuff. A new editor is on the horizon, though, and it’s pretty special. Affinity Photo is currently in beta, but packs a ton of Photoshop-y tools that pros and amateurs alike will find useful. It’s the same team behind another very useful Photoshop tool, Affinity Designer, and packs just as much punch for photo editing as Designer did for things like vector art.

comScore: Apple, Samsung, LG gain as HTC sputters

Of the estimated 182 million smartphone users in the United States, just over half use Android, according to comScore. The analytics firm just released their year-end report, and it shows just over 53% of us are using Android, while 41.6% are using iOS. Microsoft still holds a 3.4% market share with Windows, and BlackBerry fell hard, dropping half a point to capture just 1.8% of the overall smartphone market. In the OEM market share race, things are getting interesting, but are still dominated by Samsung and Apple.

iOS 8.3 has wireless CarPlay, and 8.4 may have iTunes streaming

iOS 8.3 has wireless CarPlay, and 8.4 may have iTunes streaming

Earlier today, we heard an interesting rumor about iOS 9, which is said to offer up stability solutions rather than more features for us to play with. We’re a long way off from iOS 9, though, which leaves plenty of time to actually get us more features built into iOS for our iPhones and iPads. With iOS 8.3 already in testing and packing in some CarPlay functionality, it seems iOS 8.4 just might bring us that iTunes streaming service we've long been looking forward to.

iPhone 6S might stick with 8MP camera hardware

iPhone 6S might stick with 8MP camera hardware

After the launch of Apple’s impressive new iPhone 6, a lot of attention was paid to the refresh. Many assume the iPhone 6S (if Apple sticks to their existing naming scheme, which isn’t a foregone conclusion) would have a camera that packed in more magapixels, and an updated chipset. The megapixel rumor was bolstered when Sony announced a new DSLR-ish sensor for mobile devices, which many believed would find its way to the iPhone 6S. A new report says that might have to wait, because Apple is keeping their 8 megapixel shooter for one more year.

iOS 9 said to focus on bug fixes and performance

iOS 9 said to focus on bug fixes and performance

Apple’s release of iOS 7 laid the groundwork for a new aesthetic across handheld devices. With iOS 8, there were a lot of new tricks Apple let loose, with Continuity, Handoff, and other satellite offerings like Family Share giving us reason to make our iPads and iPhones go-to devices. Now, a new rumor suggests iOS 9 will get some under-the-hood improvements, and become a lot less fussy. Now that we’ve got a pretty, useful operating system, it seems Apple wants to make it more reliable.
