The Apple Watch starts shipping from April 27, but it will actually be available inside stores from April 10. So, if you are curious to see how the device looks like and see it in action, you will be able to do so at Apple's retail stores, just to make sure that this is a product that you'd be interested in acquiring.

Earlier today Facebook held their F8 Developer Conference. There were quite a few things shared during the event, but we broke down the three largest changes which Facebook is making/adding to their service. Here's the summary:
"On This Day" Feature - This is a new way to look at old stuff. It basically gives you a page every day to bring up photos which were on that same day in your past. In order to get to this "special page," you will need to "click on the On This Day bookmark, and search for “On This Day.” Alternatively, you can just head to facebook.com/onthisday.”
Third-party developers support in FB Messenger - This was the biggest change/upgrade that Facebook shared today. The company will be opening up FB Messenger to third-party developers so that they can make their own...
AppleInsider reports that the mayor of Yokohama in Japan has officially confirmed that his city will be getting the much-rumoured new Apple R&D facility in Japan, with work due to be completed next year.
According to the original source of the story, Japanese broadcaster NHK, Apple is to take over a section of an old Panasonic factory in the area of Tsunashima-higashi. The space that Apple will be using is over 269,000 square feet and takes up four stories.
Apple is said to be currently “greening” the facility so that it lives up to the company’s strict environmentally friendly standards. For example, recycled water will be used in the facility, and trees will be planted on the roof.
This is just the latest in a number of overseas R&D facilities either opened or currently in the...
The Apple Watch goes on sale this April, and Apple is using a lot of resources to make sure that its retail employees know how to sell it. According to 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman, in order to showcase and sell the Apple Watch, retail employees will be trained to provide personal fashion and styling advice to customers.
Until now, workers's task in Apple Retail consisted in recommending iPads, iPhones and Macs with just a few few styling options. Now, it seems that they will have to become more knowledgeable regarding fashion tips.
Apple's retail employees will have to build trust with customers and offer them "personal fashion and styling advice." Here are some more details from Gurman:
"Apple is pushing for retail employees to initiate conversations that build trust, enabling the...
According to a new report coming from UK publication Express, Apple iPad Air 2 devices as well as laptops will be given out to the 650 members of the U.K’s House of Commons. This project will cost taxpayers from the United Kingdom almost $1.49 million.
However, not everybody in the Parliament agreed with this, such as Chi Onwurah and Shadow Cabinet Office minister who said the following:
"As we saw with Nigel Mills and Candy Crush, MPs will be using the games, and the iTunes and other features on the iPad. Locking some of the most powerful people in the country into a platform that most of my constituents can't afford seems like a mistake. And that's without mentioning the tax avoidance issue. I'm pushing for a device independent digital platform for Parliament."

Tim Peterson from the publication is adding some more details:
"This autoplay video test will apply to Promoted Video ads, videos that users upload through Twitter's mobile app and clips that are part...

It looks like the fashion magazines are starting to pay their undivided attention to the new Apple Watch. The latest page-turner is the Australian version of Elle magazine. In the April edition of this publication, the editors devoted an entire multi-page style guide to making the Apple Watch work for you. Here's a quote from the article, and the image above shows a model discreetly displaying the device.
"For a cocktail party: Wear with a tuxedo suit and sexy heels (think Le Smoking Saint Laurent style with Alexander Wang black heels), or if you have the legs for it, a killer cocktail dress.

It's a known fact that music streaming services are becoming more popular, and now we have a new report with fresh data to back this up. According to intel coming from the Recording Industry Association of America, sales in the US from streaming music were $1.87 billion in 2014, while CD sales were $1.85 billion.
Thus, US streaming music revenues have eclipsed CD sales for first time. This is great news for Apple, as it looks to rebrand the Beats streaming service and probably to integrate its technology into iTunes. The report mentions that digital downloads still represented the biggest part of the recording industry's revenue with $2.58 billion. However, the amount represents a decline of 8.7 percent from 2013.
As for streaming revenues, these accounted for 27 percent of the...
