First Apple Watch update may have seriously crippled one of its most important features

The heart rate sensor on the back of the Apple Watch is very accurate, a recent report has shown, on par with some of the most accurate heart rate monitors that are currently available. Unfortunately, it looks like Apple may have inadvertently crippled the heart rate functionality with its most recent software update. More →

Deal alert: Get an iPhone 6 for $450, or 10% off anything else at Gazelle

Earlier this week we told you about two great deals for smartphone shoppers who were more interested in saving money than having the latest and greatest gear. For these consumers, the prospect of a modern phone for $250 off contract or even an older handset for just $20 may be too good to pass up.

But there is another group of consumers that wasn’t addressed by these deals. These shoppers want the latest and greatest smartphones, but they don’t want to pay top dollar to get them.

Well, gadget fans, look no further. More →

Apple fans on a forum wonder if Apple Watch will help them pick up girls

Apple fans on a forum wonder if Apple Watch will help them pick up girls

The Apple Watch really is an impressive device that hits so many notes earlier smartwatch offerings were unable to manage. The design is sleek, the build is solid and premium, the display is gorgeous, and the interface is smooth and beautiful. It’s certainly not perfect — in fact, some things about the Apple Watch are positively infuriating — but there’s no question that Apple has done an impressive job when it comes to bridging the gap between fashion and wearables.

One thing Apple likely hasn’t done, however, is create a device that will go a long way in helping single men attract members of the opposite sex. More →

iPhone 6 Vs Android

Former Android diehard ‘never looking back’ after switch to iPhone 6 – find out why

Former Android diehard ‘never looking back’ after switch to iPhone 6 – find out why

By on May 22, 2015 at 11:08 AM.

Earlier this week, we told you about an Android fan who went running back to Google after spending just two weeks with an iPhone. Both platforms are very mature and capable at this point, but sometimes it’s hard to give up an operating system you’ve grown accustomed to in favor of something new and different.

Of course, there are also plenty of times when a user jumps from one platform to the other and loves the new software so much, he wonders how he ever went so long without switching. More →

Sorry, Tidal: Kanye West’s new album may be an Apple Music exclusive

Sorry, Tidal: Kanye West’s new album may be an Apple Music exclusive

An intriguing rumor from the music industry publication HITS Daily Double claims that the release date for Kanye West’s upcoming album, titled Swish, might be timed to coincide in some way with the upcoming launch of Apple Music. If this is indeed the case, it stands to reason that Kanye’s new album may very well be an Apple Music exclusive at launch.

“Kanye West is making changes, distancing himself from Tidal, firing Roc Nation and managing himself, with an unofficial assist from the Jenner-Kardashian clan,” the report claims. “As for Kanye’s long-delayed album, there’s some chatter that the release will be connected to Apple Music’s launch.”

Apple Car Rumors

What Apple’s failed HDTV plans tell us about an Apple Car

What Apple’s failed HDTV plans tell us about an Apple Car

For anyone who thinks that Apple releasing a car is all but a sure thing, the lessons from Apple’s now-abandoned efforts at developing an HDTV should not be ignored. The Wall Street Journal this week detailed how Apple spent nearly a decade researching and prototyping HDTV sets before opting to abandon the idea altogether. While Apple could have undoubtedly released a branded HDTV if it wanted to, it decided not to after struggling to come up with compelling features that would have differentiated its own HDTV from rival sets.

The arc of this story is not wholly surprising or even unique; Apple spent a few years and a whole lot of money researching a product before realizing it wasn’t worth pursuing. As Steve Jobs once said, ” I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

And yet, people still seem to be looking at the mythical Apple Car as all but a sure thing, all the while ignoring the fact that Apple constantly researches new technologies and products that, more often than not, never see the light of day.

iOS 9 to give Apple Maps a badly needed feature that Google’s had for years

iOS 9 to give Apple Maps a badly needed feature that Google’s had for years

Apple Maps has had its fair share of issues over the years, but one of the most disappointing aspects of the service is its lack of directions for those of us who regularly use transit systems to get around. As a resident of New York City, Apple Maps just isn’t a feasible option for me at the moment (even if it did function properly), but according to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, transit support is finally coming to Apple Maps alongside the iOS 9 update next month.
