Moving the controls down is an option - the URL bar in Safari doesn't have to go down (moving it down wouldn't be good as you scroll down a page) but perhaps there can be a corner icon or something that when tapped enters the text in the bar. Perhaps the notification panel can come in from the right. There's still settings to deal with, 3rd party apps and the top icon row.
That video with Ive looked very odd. Every time the interviewer asked about the design, Jony seemed like he was talking on behalf of the design team behind it and not in a way like it was a team effort. Tim has mentioned in the past that Jony is not involved with the day-to-day running of Apple. That video actually gave me the impression he wasn't heavily involved with the watch.The video even fades out towards the end where Jony is saying that not many people wear watches...
First and foremost, people buy a watch because it looks good, people are going to see it on your wrist frequently. People spend thousands of dollars on watches that do nothing more than tell the time so doing a lot of things is not critical. It needs to look good as a watch, be customisable enough and perform a few important functions well.The Moto 360 isn't perfect - the battery life should be longer, it would be better with no cutout in the display and it could do with...
It could have even been capacitive. If they had a circular chamfered edge, they could have a wire round it internally or some other sensor and you'd just swivel your fingers round the edge of the face. The LG G Watch has a physical dial round the edge though it's probably static. They could have gone that route but the physical dial is seen more on men's watches so it limits the appeal.They could even have just put a capacitive strip on the larger button at the bottom and...
This one hurts my ears. Please don't do that again new Apple ad team.
One of the conditions for getting the free album was signing up to iTunes before October 13th. They already have 500m users but say they sign up 50m more users and monetize them by $1 each, that could cover what they paid to U2. As people said, even their best album sales are no more than 25m copies and they won't need to cover anywhere near that. Most likely the sum wasn't above $100m. Like Tim said, he's a good negotiator. He's not good at improvised stage shows though -...
That's true and that's going to affect sales of this watch too. Say that 10% of compatible iPhone owners buy one, that's ~30m sales for the entire year = 6% extra revenue. Not worth bothering about. I also doubt that 10% will get one.http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2335363/moto-360-smartwatch-will-pair-with-all-devices-running-android-43-and-above"Wicks went on to talk about the Moto 360's circular design, and said that the design team decided to give people what...
The slide over the button wouldn't mirror the screen movement exactly, it would be a ratio of the movement and doesn't need to be precise but I don't like the idea of moving the finger to the home button every time anyway. I'd rather it was a gesture up where you wanted to reach. They use slide in from the left to go back. If they aren't using slide in from the right (maybe in a downward arc), perhaps that can be used to pull the top down and the amount would be how much...
If protecting against leaks was the reason, it's understandable but these kind of products are good as gifts. Now people have seen Apple's offering, seen that it's not great and competing watches are cheaper so by the time this gets round to launching, people looking for a smartwatch will already have one.
The iPods will likely be refreshed in October along with the iPads.
