I love the idea of this, but can Apple execute it in an Apply way? A large, curved Retina screen on a watch-style wearable would be amazing, but maybe not practical enough.  So many unknowns.....there would need to be an accelerometer and gyroscope tied to the UI such that each app and the home screen are always facing the user when the watch is pointed to the face. If they used those sensors, wouldn't there be an unnecessary battery tax? Will a combination of kinetic,...
I stand corrected, but I'm not sure how long this will last. I really can't see how this was approved by Apple. From Cult of Mac: Just like the App Store on your iPhone or Google Play on your Android, the Pebble appstore is a “one-stop-shop” for kitting out your device with new content. You’ll find new new watchfaces and new apps across numerous categories, including Daily, Tools & Utilities, Notifications, Remotes, Fitness, and even Games.Until now, Pebble apps and...
I don't agree. The Pebble is ugly and clunky; the interface is inelegant; and the display tech is very early 1990's. Nonetheless, I think there's a place for it somewhere in the market. Tim Cook was right when he said that many wearables do one thing pretty well, whereas none do may things very well. This is an example of such a thing, IMO. Having said that, without an application store web presence that I am aware of, it is hard to tell how good their third party app...
My understanding is that Pebbles app store is nowhere inside or even associated with Apple's Appstore.  It is its own separate entity that is accessed inside the pebble app store app only accessible through the watch itself. In other words, on your Pebble watch, there is an icon to access the Pebble app store. The Pebble app store, as far as I can tell from perusing the Pebble website, is only accessible through the watch itself, not online. I'm fairly certain that Apple...
So what sanctions, exactly, will Quinn Emmanuel face?
I hope this is for the "iPhone 6". I skipped the 5 series, but will be lined up to be among the first to get my hands on the new phone. I think it's going to wow!
Let's see what this really means. Will the entirety of the GOOG purchase be unloaded, or just parts like the handset, set-top box, or patent portfolio assets, etc.? If it's all being sold for an outright $9.5 billion loss, shareholders should (but won't) demand heads roll.
I said it before and I'll say it again, Eddy Cue has way too much on his plate. Apple needs to reorg Internet Software and Services and/or find a new SVP.   From Apple Press from apple.com/pr/bios:    "Eddy oversees Apple's industry-leading content stores including the iTunes Store, the revolutionary App Store and the iBookstore, as well as Siri, Maps, iAd and Apple's innovative iCloud services."   And this gem:   "Eddy's team has an excellent track record of...
I continue to find the Apple Remote App woeful. The UI is uninviting, it's laggy, glitchy, etc. And it's not just my Wifi router. It really needs some love. I can only hope that it hasn't been updated because something much better in the works. This seems like a familiar Apple move-having the current "just good enough" product (Remote app) as a placeholder for a product still in development.
One problem is that I think consumers were confused-even those familiar with iPhone.There appeared to be significant uncertainty about what it was among those who do not follow tech blogs. Apple did not define the 5C as "last years phone", but many others in the press and casual conversation did. However, on the other hand the case was new....then the 4S was still hanging around, and some people new that China had the 4, or something like that. A real marketing and...
