    We're just a few weeks away from Apple's WWDC 2014, and the amount of rumors as to what to expect for iOS 8 are just going to get stronger. We've heard the company making significant improvements to services like Maps, but we've also heard that it'll also create a new Health Book service, as a key feature to integrate with its future wearable. What we hadn't heard yet is to what degree of depth Apple planned to invest on this new Health Book service, and new rumors point to it being big. Reuters has apparently been interviewing some of the new execs that Apple has hired from the ...

    Pebble and other small companies are already major players in the wearables niche. Google is prepping for an imminent launch of watches powered by Android Wear. Even Samsung has its Gear lineup. Through all this, Apple has been conspicuously absent. We've suspected for some time now that Apple is getting ready to enter the smartwatch game. Now, thanks to some leaked information, we're starting to piece together a timeline for availability, but more importantly, we could be seeing a shift away from Printed Circuit Boards to a System in Package approach. PCBs and SoCs Printed circuit boards ...

    Rumors continue to point to Apple releasing its iWatch by the end of this year. We've also heard that the company has struggled to find manufacturing processes that are possible to comply with by its partners. Today we learn that there is progress in the future of this device for this year, but that also includes some new tricks up its sleeve. According to The China Times, Apple and its partners have begun manufacturing the different variations of the iWatch for a fall 2014 launch, and though a specific month wasn't provided, things sound most possible around the third quarter. An ...

    The "flagship killer" that demands that you "NEVER SETTLE" breaks cover. The pioneer of the modern mobile browser shares his story. And at long last, Microsoft and Nokia finally consummate their love. We could have a feature segment, but with news this hot, do we really need one? Not with a guest like Stefan Constantinescu of TabDump to bring some flavor (and profanity) to the proceedings, that's for sure. A word on the language of this episode: we've recently ditched the "Clean" content rating that's been with us from the start of the Weekly, trading it in for Apple's ominous "Explicit" ...

    Even though Apple is quite famous for its secrecy, a lot has gone wrong in that department lately, and we wonder if this is intentionally driven in order to lower the buzz from competing devices. We've heard tons of rumors regarding the future of the iPhone, iPad and even the iWatch, and most of this will apparently see the light of day in 2014. If you're wondering why Apple has taken so long while competitors like Samsung have all the market to themselves, Apple's CEO has an answer for that. Tim Cook was recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal after the company's quarter results, ...

    Even though Apple's consumer appeal was born with the iPod more than a decade ago, we have seen how the company has taken different steps into cannibalizing the line-up through the iPhone in a way to avoid having competition do it for them. Apple's Tim Cook stated in the past quarter results call that the iPod line-up is a declining business as it's currently nailing less than $5 billion in 2013 compared to much better results in previous years. If you're wondering what will happen to the iPod in the future, financial analysts have already begun to do the same. Financial analysts are ...

    The amount of rumors surrounding the iWatch have grown dramatically in the last couple of weeks, but the fact that we've decided to call it iWatch doesn't necessarily mean this will be the name for the product. Many speculated over the final name of the iPad for years, and we heard names like iSlate, iTab, and in the end, Apple surprised us with iPad. We could be surprised with the iWatch as well, but new official documentation reveals that we probably won't. Apple's secrecy is not as legendary as it was years ago, but it seems that the Cupertino is using a fake company by the name ...

    Nike has shocked the world lately as it decided to ditch its FuelBand line-up, along with also killing its whole wearable division. We've seen tremendous growth in fitness trackers, and also in the concept of making your smartwatch help you track your fitness as well, so many are wondering why would Nike ever consider killing one of the products that started it all. New rumors point to the reasons why this is happening, and these have all to do with Apple. Recent rumors have emerged that Apple and Nike are teaming up to bring these services to the iWatch. We've seen how Nike has made it's ...

    Apple's launch of the iWatch is imminent, though still hard to predict when it comes to specific timing. We've heard tons of rumors regarding what to expect from the products, and we do know that Apple has been hard at work to trademark names like "iWatch" under its portfolio over the last couple of months. Just like Apple dropped the "Apple Computer" name a couple of years ago in order to reflect the fact that it didn't only build computers, the company is also making some changes to what the name "Apple" can provide in the US and abroad. Cupertino is now extending the "Apple" trademark ...

    The amount of rumors surrounding the iWatch have gotten more intense lately. We've heard of Apple betting significantly on both health and fitness in ways that could revolutionize the already existing industry. Instead of just providing you with a fitness tracker, Apple is rumored to provide you with an actual health tool, which is also fashionable as well, and more rumors continue to point to that. New rumors point to LG being the only supplier that'll build Apple's iWatch displays, all based on OLED technology. The rumors are consistent with previous reports that we'll see a 1.3-inch and ...
