Despite the reports, some refuse to believe Apple is giving up on TVs

After years of speculation, a report from The Wall Street Journal seemingly confirmed that any potential plans Apple ever put together regarding a dedicated television set have been scrapped. Even analyst Gene Munster, one of the biggest proponents of the Apple TV’s existence, was ready to admit defeat. But there are others who aren’t so sure. More →

Apple Watch Orders

Tim Cook finally reveals when the Apple Watch will go on sale in Apple Stores

Tim Cook finally reveals when the Apple Watch will go on sale in Apple Stores

The Apple Watch rollout was unique, to say the least. In stark contrast to typical Apple product launches which often involve long lines of eager buyers, the Apple Watch launch was much more muted.

Individuals interested in purchasing an Apple Watch could only do so by placing an order online and having it delivered to their home or workplace. Buyers interested in casually walking in and out of an Apple retail store with an Apple Watch in hand were out of luck.

But that may be changing soon enough.

Why Apple decided to axe its mythical HDTV

Why Apple decided to axe its mythical HDTV

After nearly a decade worth of research and prototyping, Apple last year finally put to bed any designs it may have had on releasing a branded HDTV set, this according to a recently published report in The Wall Street Journal.

According to the Journal, Apple seriously investigated the development of an HDTV but was ultimately unable to come up with a set of differentiating features that would position its own offering apart from the competition.

Steve Jobs Movie Trailer

Watch: First trailer from Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs movie

Watch: First trailer from Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs movie

Late on Sunday, the hotly anticipated trailer from the Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic premiered online. While the trailer itself is somewhat subdued, it provides our first glimpse at Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogan who assume the roles of Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, respectively.

Due to Sorkin’s penchant for delivering incredible stories with memorable dialogue (his past works include A Few Good Men, The Social Network, and The West Wing), there’s been a tremendous amount of interest in the second attempt at a Jobs biopic, the first, of course, being the largely panned Ashton Kutcher movie titled Jobs.

Apple Watch Vs Mechanical Watches

Confessions of a watch collector who fell in love with the Apple Watch

Confessions of a watch collector who fell in love with the Apple Watch

By now you’ve read and listened to plenty of commentary covering the Apple Watch from watch lovers young and old. There’s no question that Apple’s first wearable device is making waves in Switzerland, where longtime leaders are now struggling to figure out exactly how to respond to Apple’s new gadget. Sadly, most of the responses we’ve seen so far are just awful.

There is no question that Swiss watchmakers need to respond to the Apple Watch. As younger generations get older and connected devices proliferate, Switzerland’s customer base will continue to shrink unless it can begin to not just compete, but also innovate.

But it’s not just younger generations Swiss watchmakers need to worry about — even lifelong mechanical watch collectors are abandoning the devices they love in favor of the Apple Watch. More →

Samsung’s iPhone nightmare is far from over, and now it’s affecting Google

One of the factors that contributed to Samsung’s weak quarters last year is the iPhone 6 family of smartphones. Apple sold a record-breaking number of handsets in 2014 at the expense of rivals, with a staggering 74.4 million iPhones having been sold during the Christmas quarter. Now, it looks like the iPhone 6 buying frenzy is far from over. More →
