HBO NOW heads to Apple TV with no cable required

This week during an event centered on Apple Watch, Apple also revealed that new content would be coming to Apple TV - one of these bits being HBO NOW. HBO would be bringing content, primarily - "we're offering content from all the leading content providers," said Tim Cook, and that includes ESPN, Showtime, Disney, ABC, PBS, and more, now. Also present at the event was Richard Plepler, CEO of HBO. "This is a transformative moment for HBO," said Plepler, showing Game of Thrones, Band of Brothers, True Detective, and Angry Boys onscreen.

We’re on the ground for the Apple Watch event!

Today’s the day! We’re here in San Francisco, ready to get inside the Yerba Buena Center on this blustery winter morning. What will we find in there? We’re not entirely certain, to be honest. The Apple Watch is all but a foregone conclusion, where Apple is expected to announce more details ahead of the April release timeframe CEO Tim Cook already hinted at. Could we see something else? Multiple other things? We’ll know in a few hours, but we have our suspicions.

Analysts: Apple Watch could top 19 million in 2015

Apple will "spring forward" at its event on March 9th, where it will likely launch its first generation of Apple's wearable technology, the Apple Watch.

Professional market analysts have been reporting their bullish views on Apple's possible success in the market place.

The Apple Watch event site has us intrigued (pics & video)

Apple’s latest event is just days away. At this soiree, we’re expecting the Apple Watch to be the star of the show, which was heavily hinted at with Apple’ invitation to the event, which made a tongue-in-cheek reference to setting the time correctly. Not content to simply house the event at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, Apple is also building an outside area right next to the events hall. We’re in San Francisco for GDC, so we took a peek at what Apple has going on.

Apple’s March 9 event — more than just a watch?

Apple’s March 9 event — more than just a watch?

Now that we’ve got our invites for the Apple event on March 9 — which is almost assuredly for the Apple Watch — what else might we find at that time? Though it’s entirely possible Apple will do nothing more than discuss the Apple Watch (and all the behind-the-scenes changes they’ve made to go along with it), the company always seem to have ‘one more thing’ up their sleeve. So what could that be? Anyone’s guess is good enough, but we’re wondering when that MacBook Air refresh might pop up.

This event will likely reveal final pricing and release information for the Apple wearable device.

iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 — should you upgrade?

With two new iPad models being announced today, there’s one overriding question: should I upgrade? If you’re reading this on an iPad, you might be wondering if it’s worth plopping down some cash at the Apple Store for a new iPad Air or iPad mini. There’s a lot of cool stuff, but the top-end 128GB iPad Air 2 with cellular connectivity starts creeping into the Macbook Air price range. That’s a lot of cash, especially if you’ve got an iPad you’re happy with.

iPad Air 2 hands-on: Witness the waif

iPad Air 2 hands-on: Witness the waif

Did the iPad Air need to be any slimmer? Apple certainly thinks so, and so the iPad Air 2 was born, just 6.1mm thick and now blessed with a Touch ID sensor that was previously limited to its iPhone cousins. At first glance it's hard to spot the difference, at least until you pick the Air 2 up, when its waifish build suddenly becomes more obvious.

Retina 5K iMac display has insane pixel count

If you were thinking the iMac display was lacking, you might not be alone. Apple has taken the next step forward with their desktop machine, bringing in the “world’s highest resolution display”. Not only Retina, the new iMac is going to be Retina 5K. What does that mean, exactly? It’s got seven times more pixels than your awesome HD TV. It’s also only 5mm thin at the edge, and uses a lot less energy than the existing iMac. Less power and more pixels? Yes, please.

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

This afternoon Apple has suggested that they’ve sold more iPads in the product’s first four years of availability than any other product. Even the iPhone, Apple’s best-selling product, didn’t reach the sales numbers the iPad did in its first four years in its own first four years. Adoption of the iPad was a lot easier to accomplish than the iPhone - no data costs, after all. Now Apple's quest must be how to replace those iPads - what's a new iPad when you already have one, after all?
