    Hands On With The Apple Watch

    Apple’s wearable strategy is out there, and the way they’re looking to distance themselves from the crowd is by introducing a smooth, highly usable interface with unique control mechanisms, and creating a device that embraces apps and features beyond notifications, but in a way that makes sense for a small-screened device. The Apple Watch also cozies up to mobile payments, with NFC… Read More

  • Apple Watch Will Drive Wearables Into The Enterprise

    Apple Watch Will Drive Wearables Into The Enterprise

    Wearables are very likely going to have a role in the enterprise, and it could be sooner than you think, especially in light of today’s Apple Watch announcement. If it takes off like previous i-devices, it could have broad implications for wearables in the enterprise. It stands to reason that just as the iPhone and iPad that came before it, the Apple Watch will begin to show up in… Read More

    If Switzerland Is Fucked, Then The iWatch Is, Too

    As we approach Peak iWatch, it’s important to consider just what the new device (if it even launches) will do to the watch market as a whole. I can assure you – and this is based on a deep and nuanced understanding of the Swiss watch industry – that the jolly watchmakers of Geneva aren’t giving the iWatch a second thought. First, let’s address where we got the… Read More

  • iWatch’s Killer Feature Could Be Two-Factor Authentication For Payments

    iWatch’s Killer Feature Could Be Two-Factor Authentication For Payments

    How will Apple make us desperate to buy its smartwatch? By taking the risk and clumsiness out of mobile payments. Imagine if your iWatch could recognize that your iPhone is within range as a pre-payment security check. The two could then connect to a retailer’s point of sale via Near Field Communication (NFC), and a “Pay $20 to Starbucks?” confirmation could pop up on… Read More

    What To Expect From Apple’s iPhone Event On September 9

    Apple is hosting an event on September 9, and by all accounts it’s going to be a real barn burner. The company is set to announce new iPhones, and this much you can take to the bank, but rumors have also arisen suggesting we’ll see a brand new wearable device of some kind – the great and powerful ‘iWatch’ of legend. Apple will also probably showcase iOS 8, along… Read More

    Apple’s NFC Payments Play Could Make Its Wearable A Computing Friction Killer

    Apple could be gearing up to make its so-called ‘iWatch’ a payment device powered by NFC, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal. But including near-field communications tech in the iWatch (and the iPhone 6, too, if the report is correct) will open the door for much more than just payments, and could make the wearable an authentication device that finally convinces… Read More

    Apple Will Live Stream The iPhone Event On September 9

    Apple has revealed (with plenty of notice for once) that it will live stream the event it’s holding next week on September 9 at 10 AM PT. That means users will be able to tune in on their devices, so long as they can run Safari 5.1.10 or later on desktop or Safari on iOS 6 or later. Apple TV owners with second- or third-generation devices will also be able to get in on the… Read More

    Analyst Expects iWatch In Two Sizes, 128GB iPhone And iPad Air 2 Reveal Next Week

    In general, the anticipations of analysts are things you can safely ignore, but a new report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac) is worth a look, especially given his track record of successfully predicting Apple’s product roadmap – and according to Kuo, there’s a lot in store for us next week at Apple’s special event, including a new iPad. So far… Read More
