Apple’s Watch is, at the end of the day, a product that will suffer damages including standard wear and tear. So don’t expect it to be any differently than regular watches from that point of view — and that goes double for the watch’s bands, including the Sport fluoroelastomer and Leather bands, according to pictures posted by 9to5Mac.

App developers are Apple’s secret MVPs. Without applications, the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch would be immensely boring devices. Apple knows this, and that’s why it always tries to outshine the competition when it comes to app availability for its products, including the newly launched Apple Watch. More →
So your Apple Watch just arrived in the mail. Now what? The first thing you’ll need to do with the device is to run through its initial setup with help of a compatible iPhone (at least iPhone 5 or later).
Sure, the Apple Watch has amazing build quality, and any version seems to be sturdy enough to withstand plenty of accidents including drops, scratches and dunks in water to name just a few. But the device is not indestructible, and some people have already started putting it through various torture tests to gauge its resistance. In other words, any Apple Watch model is susceptible to accidental damage, and Apple already knows what it will and won’t cover under the standard and extended warranty programs. More →
After spending a good amount of time with my new Apple Watch, I have not been able to find the one defining feature that would make it a must-have device for everyone. In fact, I couldn’t even explain to some of my friends why it made sense for me to buy the device. All that said, I am starting to see what this tiny device could bring me: More free time.
Buyers eager to get their hands on an Apple Watch today who haven’t been able to secure an April 24th ship date for their preorders had only a few options at their disposal, none of them being Apple retail stores. The smartwatch was available in limited quantities in certain fashion boutiques around the world in Tokyo, London, Paris, Milan, Berlin and Los Angeles. But at the moment, the Apple Watch is available in just one store on the planet. More →
Paris is a gorgeous city by day or by night, though you’re not likely to focus on its genuine beauty if you’re rushing down a familiar street for reasons that have nothing to do with sightseeing. But that’s what I did last night. Ignoring the dimly lit Opera building and the avoiding the massive Louvre, I headed straight for the iconic French fashion boutique you may have heard of recently in reports covering the Apple Watch release.
The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are Samsung’s best phones to date, and they’re also the company’s most expensive phones to date. In fact, they’re priced even higher than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you thought LG’s upcoming flagship device would beat the Galaxy S6 on price, then you might be surprised. At least that’s what a new report from South Korean publication ETNews claims. More →
Samsung: Galaxy S6 design was inspired by ‘water… and its purity and malleability in color and depth’
Yes, Samsung said that about the Galaxy S6 design. After all, that’s what the company does whenever it launches a new product – it tells the design story with such complexity that’s hard to keep up with all its fabricated nonsense. However, this time around Samsung is trying to sell us something we’re already sold on: the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge have amazing designs, and they’re the best phones Samsung has ever made.

Anyone who’s getting their Apple Watch on Friday will surely be on the lookout for more apps for the device. There are plenty of ways to find updated iOS apps that include their respective Watch components, but the easiest one by far is going to the actual source of iOS apps: Apple’s official App Store.

Every once in a while you see a phone that’s so impressive you can’t ignore it, even if you know it’s not going to be your next phone. Such is the case with the Turing Phone, a Lollipop-powered Android handset that’s not only supposed to be more durable than any other smartphone on the planet, it’s also seemingly far more secure than rival handsets.

What do you do when your country isn’t part of the initial Apple Watch launch wave? Naturally, you try to order one online from one of the first nine markets, hoping to somehow be able to have it delivered to a friend. Or at least, that’s what I tried, but sadly it didn’t work. So now what do you do when you’ve missed the chance to preorder the Apple Watch with a confirmed April 24th ship date? Naturally, you hope that you’ll be able to score one in stores on launch day rather than waiting for it to ship in May – no, make that June or later – and you book a flight to one of the countries Apple has lined up for this launch.
Well, that’s what I did. More →
