Woz says iWatch could make wearables “finally viable”

Sometimes, Woz just nails it. Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, is a pretty down-to-earth guy, and not shy about sharing his opinion when asked.

Apple stock reaches all-time closing high

Apple stock reaches all-time closing high

Earlier today Apple was granted a patent which fairly obviously suggested they would be creating a smartwatch in the near future. This patent number 8,808,483 does include "iPhone" in its description, but its claims do not assign it to a specific device, leaving it open to any similar device within reason - small enough for a smartwatch.

Apple’s Sapphire glass facility nearly ready for mass production

The Sapphire glass Apple uses — and is rumored to use much more of with new handsets — is partly thanks to GT Advanced Technologies. They’ve recently announced their financial results for the second quarter, noting an $86 million loss as they pivot operations to align themselves with Apple.
