I am a bit confused with Apple. They have this great "Continuity" technology which lets you have/make phone calls from any Apple device.I thought "Continuity" was going to shrink the size of the iPhone. The idea is that you rarely take your iPhone out of the bag and instead use a bigger (iPod/iPad) screen. It is a win win to Apple. You get the iPhone for Connectivity, iPod/iPad for productivity.Instead Apple launched the iPhone 6+ which offers Connectivity and Productivity...
[concerning the Unrumored Products]   No one seems to talk about the iPod. Yet, it still features prominently in the header of Apple's revamped website. It is very telling that the iPod is positioned in between iTunes and iPad. The iPad is actually a bigger screen iPod Touch:   Are we going to see a bigger screen for the iPod Touch? 5.5 inch does make sense here. With a much needed processor upgrade? And will it get a better camera? Last time the new iPod Touch was...
 I'd combine it with a "clickwheel": direct input = Siricontrol = "clickwheel"discrete input = iPhone The clickwheel is the (outer edge of the) watchface. It is ideal for both left and right handed use.Covering the watchface with your hand could be the home button.
 People back then (2007) were lusting for a widescreen iPod. Apple surprised them by doing the unthinkable. They offered: A phone, a widescreen iPod and an internet communicator.A phone, an iPod and an internet communicator.A phone, an iPod and ... you get it ?Its touch based interface was revolutionary as well. Just like the clickwheel was for the original iPod.What do we have now?A watch that looks like a mini tablet strapped on your wrist. Shame as its interface could...
The iPhone 6 is a thing of beauty, isn't she?   The rounded edges and glass make it very durable when you drop your phone. There are no sharp edges that can break off. The forces are evenly absorbed and distributed by the rounded corners.   The proportions of the iPhone 6 are ace. I always found the iPhone 5/5S odd looking. But the iPhone 6 nails it. This is an instant classic.   I am not too keen on the iPhone 6+. It is a fad to me. Phablets (any phone bigger than...
Good Move!   It is not about the watch. The watch is actually a gimmick.   Here are a few suggestions I have for Apple's "second generation watch":   The interface needs to be redesigned from the ground up: Photos, doodles and facebook have no place on your wrist. The bubbly homescreen is a nightmare as well. Keep the display discrete. Remember, your wrist is always in your view. You don't want to be distracted by butterflies or Mickey Mouse. Replace the digital...
Fair play to Samsung.   They pioneered the phablet.   (...)   I am not sure if that is meant to be a compliment  
I am also mystified why they didn't make use of the iconic clickwheel concept for their watch. It is a proven concept, both ergonomically & technologically. One final note: I am not too happy with the  watch name either. The "watch" name is creating the wrong expectations. The watch is only a gimmick. This thing is doing so much more. It is recording things. Keeping track of things.  They should have called it, iO. Plain and simple. iO is a simple round iDevice. You wear...
 I am back from my self imposed sabbatical. Is that you Craig? If so, could you pass on this message to Jony Ive?: My first impressions from the  watch: Why not having a round circular body instead of a rounded rectangle? This way you could incorporate the digital crown on top of the watch? Like BMW's iDrive.  It'd be much easier to manipulate. You could take this concept even further. Like the iPod clickwheel you could make the digital crown tactile. Slide your finger...
Looks like Dr Dre donated money instead of doing the Ice water bucket challenge? We're well over the 24hour mark …   Ah, shame Cook didn't nominate Craig Federighi! How awesome would that have been!?
