Jimmy Kimmel pranks strangers with a fake Apple iTime smartwatch

Jimmy Kimmel is the best in the business when it comes to making unsuspecting passersby look like complete morons. On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel’s crew took to Hollywood Blvd. with Apple’s unreleased iTime smartwatch, first revealed in a patent application earlier this week, to gauge the public reaction. The only problem was that the watch in question was actually a $20 Casio watch with an Apple logo stuck to the back. As you can probably guess, a lot of people didn’t catch on, and the resulting video is pretty hysterical. More →

Apple is building stores in India just for iPhones and iPads

Apple is planning to open stores in India which will only sell iOS devices following significant growth in sales of the iPhone and iPad over the past several years.

Apple will also take on 50% of the cost for the 10-15 demo units required to appear at each location. More →

iPhone 6 makes Apple the biggest client of the world’s top chip supplier

WTF of the week: Apple could be ‘obsolete’ in 2-3 years

WTF of the week: Apple could be ‘obsolete’ in 2-3 years

At some point in the future, Apple will no longer be the consumer technology giant it is today. It will become obsolete. Its products will no longer be trendy. Other companies will innovate and drive Apple out of markets it had once dominated. It’s inevitable. It might happen in 10 years or it might happen in 100 years, but it will happen. One of the few things we can safely assume, however is that it will not happen in the next 2-3 years — unless you’re Pedro de Noronha, managing partner at Noster Capital. More →

iPhone 6 vs Metal Samsung Galaxy

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Samsung has already started making fun in a TV commercial of the unreleased iPhone 6, telling potential buyers that its Android handsets had bigger displays for quite a while in an obvious attempt to kill the iPhone 6 buzz and divert attention to its own 2014 flagship handset. But the company appears to actually have a real iPhone 6-related problem, Digitimes reports, which may affect its own smartphone launch plans. Apple’s massive metal chassis orders with suppliers are apparently preventing Samsung from placing its own metal chassis orders for a future iPhone 6 killer that would ditch plastic in favor of metal.

Here’s why you won’t be able to buy a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 in September

Many iPhone 6 reports have claimed the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model is delayed, as Apple has been experiencing various production issues related to battery size, new display with in-cell touch sensors, or the sapphire front panel. But according to a new report, it appears that’s not why Apple may want to delay the phablet. Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter that yield rates have not been an issue for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and the company instead has a completely different reason to hold the handset back.
