This morning Apple revealed the Apple Watch. This is a device that opens up a new door for Apple - wearables. And it’s not just a tiny iPhone - on the contrary. This is a whole new machine, complete with accessories that’ll make it unique to the user.
Intercommunication - Apple Watch to Apple Watch - is something Apple seems to have been adamant about when they first started designing the devices. Making communication between the devices central to their being, these devices not only open a new device category for the brand - they also make them an exclusive club membership card, so to speak.
Apple may not be first into the smartwatch space, but the Apple Watch does bring with it a new way of interacting. Whereas other platforms, like Android Wear, have focused on touch, Apple has looked instead to physical controls, borrowing the physical dial from traditional timepieces, and throwing in a newly perceptive touchscreen.
Long rumored, highly anticipated, and wildly rumored — the Apple Watch is here. Today, Apple made official their first device meant to be worn. Not only their first wearable, Apple is taking smartwatches to a whole new level. Here’s what you can expect, and what it really is.
This morning it was confirmed - believe it or not - that Marie Claire is at the Apple Event expected to reveal the iPhone 6 and iWatch. This brand is almost certainly not alone in its origin and aim - attending the event, essentially confirming the idea that Apple will be revealing the iWatch today. Or at least something very fashion oriented. Perhaps Beats-related.
If you expected to find a whole lot more inside the Moto 360 this week than you’d seen in our Motorola Chicago tour last week, you’re in for a shock. As iFixit shows us this week, with a score of 3 out of 10 on the repairability gauge, this isn’t the sort of device you want to take apart.
Google has started rolling out a new firmware update to Google Glass that improves on one of the most common use cases for the smart eyewear: travel. XE20.0 (amusingly no fractional part to the version number this time) gives faster updates for time-critical, and sometimes not so time-critical, information and better integrates with Waze "smart" commuting.
This afternoon shipping notifications have begun arriving for those that'd been signed up to receive a Moto 360 earliest. Not those that'd purchased them this past week. Not those that'd pre-ordered them (somehow, with fairy magic), but those that attended Google I/O 2014. You lucky ducks, you.
