Recent versions of Apple's Mail.app email client haven't been well received, leading to the release of a slew of alternatives. AppleInsider takes a look at how the company is trying to win back its users in OS X Yosemite.

The layout remains largely the same as it has in the past, though many areas have been given...
SteelSeries will expand its Made for iPhone gaming controller lineup with a new, larger second model dubbed the Stratus XL, offering wireless connectivity to both Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. While the first SteelSeries Stratus, released earlier this year, was designed for portability, the new full-size controller is more akin to the dedicated console controllers found on systems like Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4. It's set to launch later this...
If Apple does launch a so-called "iWatch" later this year, investment firm UBS believes the ramp up in sales could be similar to the company's wildly successful iPad, hitting 21 million units in fiscal 2015 and 36 million units the following year. iWatch concept by Todd Hamilton With a projected average selling price of $300, the iWatch could add one to two points of earnings per share growth, analyst Steven Milunovich said in a note to investors on Monday, a copy of...

For years, IK Multimedia has been making tools for musicians with popular products like T-Racks and the iRig guitar adapter. Now the firm is dipping its toes into computer vision with a gesture-based music creation tool called iRing. AppleInsider first covered iRing earlier this year at CES and with the units shipping now, we set out to see if the kit is as much fun as we remembered from the show floor.
