Apple Watch in-store stock a no-go until at least June

Apple Watch in-store stock a no-go until at least June

On launch day (early morning?), we saw Apple Watch’s shipment timeframe slip from April 24 to a few weeks later. Then, it was four to six weeks out; later, Apple would only promise your Apple Watch would ship sometime in June. That leaves many impulse shoppers with no avenue for getting their Apple Watch unless they pay exorbitant amounts on eBay. If you can hold out until June (at the earliest), Apple retail boss Angela Ahrendts says they’ll have the Apple Watch in-store and ready for purchase.

IFTTT Do apps coming to empower the Apple Watch

IFTTT Do apps coming to empower the Apple Watch

At their very core, smartwatches are supposedly meant to simply be notification extensions of our smartphones, relaying important events or reminders during times we can't pull out our devices. They can also be useful for quick, single action processes, like checking off a todo or even replying by voice. But that's not all that a smartwatch can do, and IFTTT is coming along to prove that. With its upcoming Apple Watch integration, one of the most popular web services around will allow you to use your smartwatch to turn off lights and maybe even make you coffee someday.

Pope’s used iPad sold to anon bidder for $30,500

Pope’s used iPad sold to anon bidder for $30,500

The pope is an iPad user, and like any gadget user, he has parted ways with his outdated slate. Unlike most used gadgets, however, this one attracted the attention of people the world over — for obvious reasons — ultimately selling for a pretty penny: $30,500 USD, to be exact. It was sold at an auction earlier this week, and the money that was made in the sale went to a school in Uruguay for disadvantaged kids. The person who bought the tablet is from Argentina, but who he is isn’t known, with the successful bidder asking to be anonymous.

Apple Watch with gold Link Bracelet bestowed upon designer

The Apple Watch is coveted by many and a fashion choice for some, and designer Karl Lagerfeld is counted among them. One of Apple’s smartwatches can be found on his wrist, but it isn’t like the rest of them: Apple gifted him with one that was specially made for him as a gift, and it features a gold Link Bracelet. The image surfaced on Instagram, where the designer’s assistant Sebastian Jondeau posted a picture of it (available after the jump). Whether this band indicates a gold Link Bracelet could eventually become an option for others isn’t known at this point.

App Store, Google Play again differ on revenue, downloads

App Store, Google Play again differ on revenue, downloads

In just over one month, both Google and Apple will hold their respective annual conferences. At both events, the companies will make applause-inducing comments regarding the strength of their respective app portals. A new report is shedding some light on both, suggesting there are (still) issues with Google Play and revenue. While the iOS App Store moves at a steady pace, Google Play spiked when it came to downloads. Google Play also brought in almost half the revenue of the App Store, suggesting — once again — Android users just don’t want to buy apps.

Goldman forecasts Apple Watch domination

Goldman forecasts Apple Watch domination

Goldman analyst Lindsay Drucker Mann and her team of analysts have conducted a survey of 1,000 US consumers over the two days after Apple opened preorders for the Apple Watch. In their study, they found that while most respondents didn't plan on purchasing any smartwatch at all in the future, 11% of all iPhone users suggested it was "very likely" that they'd be buying an Apple Watch. Because of this, Goldman forecasts 13.5 million Apple Watch units will be sold inside the year 2015.

Huawei P8 vs iPhone 6: not the real war

Huawei P8 vs iPhone 6: not the real war

Welcome to the battle Huawei would love for you to be placing under consideration: Huawei P8 vs iPhone 6. Of course that's not a set of phones you'll be considering battling one another, not least of all because the Huawei P8 won't be doing its initial launch in the United States. Instead - if you're really in the market for a new phone, you'll be considering your ecosystem and the one element in a smartphone that you'll probably use more than any other - the camera. ...or the display, of course - the thing you actually use more than anything else.

MacBook teardown — Apple packed a lot in that tiny frame

MacBook teardown — Apple packed a lot in that tiny frame

A feat of engineering on many levels, Apple’s new MacBook is also a computer you won’t be repairing yourself. According to iFixit, there might be no hope if something goes south on your new MacBook. In running the MacBook through their teardown process, the team at iFixit was befuddled by MacBook’s solid construction. Sounds counterintuitive, but when you’re using a bunch of adhesive and proprietary screws, that’s bound to be the case. Also, that tiny logic board has no hope for swapping components.

Mophie hops on the Apple Watch train with watch dock

Mophie hops on the Apple Watch train with watch dock

When smartphone users hear the name "mophie", they immediately think of battery cases and charging accessories for smartphones. With the arrival of the Apple Watch, however, it might be high time to change that perception. Sure, mophie isn't making a case for the smartwatch, unlike this rather odd accessory, but it's still probably the closest you'll get to the intersection of mophie and Apple Watch. As the name says, the mophie watch dock is simply that, a charging dock, or rather stand, for your smartwatch, just done in style.

Apple buys LinX for DSLR-quality iPhone & iPad pics

Apple’s iSight camera is already some of (if not the) best camera hardware on a smartphone or tablet. It’s one thing Apple routinely pays attention to, and improves at just about every hardware turn. Now, it seems Apple has purchased an Israeli startup named LinX to further enhance their stock camera hardware, and it could mean big things for your favorite camera or photo editing app. The deal is worth a reported $20 million, though Apple hasn’t exactly announced the deal.
