    Apple's iWatch project direction continues to leave a lot of question marks. Apple is famous for "figuring things out" on existing markets, and we keep wondering how the company plans to differentiate the smart watch in its currently emerging ecosystem. What's different about Apple is that it keeps hiring specialists focused in medical technology, and the latest one is rather interesting. The company has just hired Marcelo Lamego for a position that is yet unknown. Lamego is the former chief technology officer of non-invasive patient monitoring company Cercacor. This company specializes ...

    Even though we've heard of Apple's significant investment in its Sapphire plant based in Mesa, Arizona, its still hard to predict what the company plans to do with all the supply its secured. We've heard rumors of Apple's plans to fit the next-generation iPhone with Sapphire, but it seems that it won't be the company's first product to be fitted with the feature. Taiwanese sources are hinting that building an iPhone with Sapphire is still too expensive for Apple at the moment, but not as expensive for the iWatch. We do know that Apple is already testing as many as 100 iPhone prototypes ...

    Sometimes it's not the promise of saving money, nor the allure of a shiny device that drives you from the warm arms of your current wireless carrier - sometimes it's just a matter of standing up for what you believe in. That's the case with today's podcast guest, friend of the show and longtime Verizon Wireless customer Chris Larson, who's leaving Big Red for the much smaller T-Mobile USA due to Verizon's stance on net neutrality. On this episode of the Weekly, we'll talk to Chris and find out just what he's prepared to sacrifice, and why. Before that, though, there's an avalanche of news ...

    Even though Apple was born as a computer company, that didn't stop it from evolving into the iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, and iPad that we see today. We've heard intense rumors, we've seen lots of patents, and we've noticed recent hires that all point to the company working on something new in the wearable category, and the company's boss just shed some additional light. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Apple's CEO Tim Cook confirmed that "“there will be new categories this year,” and in his usual tone, the fact that Apple is “working on some really great stuff.” As ...

    One of the biggest challenges that wearable-tech manufacturers face is how to power such a small device for a decent period of time. Google Glass isn't the best when it comes to battery life, and so is the Galaxy Gear. Now if there's one device that we've generally praised for its battery life, even though not a wearable is the LG G2, and rumors have it that its technology will power the iWatch. Lots of reports had Apple using solar batteries to power the iWatch, but it turns out that these batteries can only provide one tenth of the battery life that a regular lithium-ion battery can ...

    Apple was once one of the most secretive companies in the industry, and even though it keeps doing a lot to keep its future projects under wraps, the Internet proves it can't be beaten. So far we've seen a ton of new hires, and lots of patents that are focused on its future iWatch, and even though we still don't know when the product will land, we keep getting hints on what it'll be about. The company has just hired Roy J.E.M Raymann from Phillips Research, and as it turns out, his main expertise is sleep research, aside from his documented experience in wearables, sensors, and even ...

    Apple's been a company with eyes on health, fitness, and wearable gadgets for a while now – heck, there's been that Nike+iPod tracker going back the better part of a decade, launching in 2006, and that relationship with Nike has only led to more advanced accessories, like the Fuelband. But as we look to the future, with Apple rumored to launch its own smartwatch, that interest in health-related tech may become a much larger focal point, and rumors claim that iOS 8 could reflect this in a big way. Rather than messing with the platform's look and feel, as iOS 7 did, iOS 8 may concentrate ...

    When will Apple finally get around to releasing its smartwatch? Rumors argue quite convincingly that such a product is in development, but they've been in disagreement (or just fully in the dark) when it comes to precisely when the so-called iWatch might become available. In recent months, the narrative seems to be one dominated by talk of delays, and rumors have suggested that it won't be until well within the second half of the year before we see any iWatch launch. Now some new sources are weighing-in on the matter, describing some particular setbacks Apple has supposedly been enduring. ...

    It's been a couple weeks since we've had reason to discuss Apple's smartwatch ambitions, when we got an update about a possible timetable. Rather than seeing an iWatch launch sometime in the spring, this source indicated that Apple might not get around to mass production of the phone until the second half of 2014, pushing retail availability out even further. Today we hear some new rumors about this hardware, reinforcing that idea of a later launch, and offering some details about the watch itself. Supposedly, Apple is looking to introduce the iWatch sometime in October of next year. That ...
