Whether you are an active stock broker or just a dabbler in stock investments, you might find the Apple Watch even more useful now. The folks at E*Trade just officially announced their new app made specifically for the Apple Watch. The app promises to help you "get the pulse of the market on you wrist." While that might be a bold statement, here's a brief description of what it will do for you:
Get stock & account notifications
Spot market trends
Check account balances
Track your investments
Of course, it makes sense that this functionality would be baked into the app, but it's great to see that you can check on your investments on the Apple Watch even if your iPhone isn't handy. For more info, be sure to check out the E*Trade App in the iTunes store:...
Apple Watch Endures Extreme Torture Tests: Dropped, Scratched, Boiled, Grated & Dipped in CondimentsA few days ago we shared a video of some brave/crazy souls attempting to drown their brand new Apple Watch, and coming out quite happy with the water-resistant results. Today we found a series of three videos that take the Apple Watch torture to the extreme.
Each one ups the ante on just what you can/should do when testing the Apple Watch for "durability." We can't help but be entertained by these videos, so we are sharing them with you. If you have a weak stomach to watching technology being maimed then you may want to avoid these videos as the Apple Watch is Dropped, Scratched, Boiled, Grated, Dipped in Condiments and more. The first of the three videos is above and the rest are in the thread below.
After Apple officially launched the Apple Watch this past Friday, the company has now updated its website with details on the battery life of the device.
Apple has updated the Service and Recycling section of the Batteries page, where it now states that the Watch should hold 80 percent of its original capacity at 1,000 "complete" charge cycles (charging from empty to full).
Apple also informs that a defective Apple Watch battery can be replaced for free under warranty coverage, including AppleCare+. However, if you need a swap, then this will cost $99 in the U.S., plus $7 in shipping. Apple also reassures that it will recycle batteries responsibly:
"Putting any battery directly in the trash is dangerous for the environment and for those who live in it. By servicing your Apple...
Apple will report its earnings for the quarter that ended in March after the market closes today. And as we're getting closer to that moment, analysts are throwing in their own estimates. And, by the looks of it, the company could be all set for another record-breaking quarter.
Apple's revenue growth is expected to be driven by strong iPhone sales as Apple is expected to sell 58.1 million units, which would represent a massive 33% increase over the same period a year ago. If Apple will manage to sell that many units, it will be the second-biggest quarter for iPhone sales in Apple's history. In the previous quarter, Apple managed to sell an impressive amount of 74.5 million iPhones.
As for iPad sales, analysts estimate that Apple will sell around 13.6 million iPads, which would be...
AppleInsider reports that today’s launch of the Apple Watch has also seen the launch of a new power adapter for the UK, which has been bundled with the watch, and which will, presumably, be bundled with other Apple devices from now on.
The previous adapter was typically chunky, like all UK plugs, but the new adaptor is actually ingeniously foldable, with pins that fold into the body of the plug, which has generally a more rounded appearance.
The folding operation is designed to be as smooth as possible for ease of use, with all three pins either folding or unfolding together when just one is pressed.
News of the new plug was actually leaked last Friday by a famous ex-rugby player in the UK, Will Carling, when he posted photos of the folding charger on Twitter, saying that it had...
The folks at FoneFox decided to put the Apple Watch's IPX7 water resistance to the test. When Tim Cook first announce the device, they indicated it would be resistant to splashes and moisture, but based upon the above video, it's actually better than that.
The videographers started out pushing the envelope by taking the 38mm Apple Watch Sport in the shower with them. The watch passed with flying colors, so they took it to the next level and submerged in in a bucket of water for 5 minutes. Even that wasn't enough to satisfy them, so they actually took the watch for a 15 minute swim in the pool, and it still worked fine afterward!
It's just proof positive that Apple does their best to under-promise, but over-deliver!
*Despite these tests, we still wouldn't recommend folks do what...
Most folks who pre-ordered the Apple Watch during the first 5 minutes will be getting their order delivered sometime today. Even though there are a few stores where you can see the Apple Watch demoed, they are still ridiculously hard to get, and only folks who pre-ordered or order them now will be able to get one in the near future.
Of course, Apple will continue to ramp up production as demand increases and manufacturing because easier. To get us even more excited about the new super-device, Apple released three new teaser videos for the Apple Watch. You can see one of them above and the other two in the thread below.
AppleInsider reports that the Apple Watch is apparently running “most” of iOS 8.2, using a new subsystem, Carousel, instead of the Springboard home screen that features on iPhone and iPad.
The news comes via developer Steve Troughton-Smith, who also said that the Apple Watch’s S1 processor is roughly the equivalent of the Apple A5 chip.
In a tweet, Troughton-Smith said that the Watch firmware features a PowerVR SGX543 driver. The A5, which first appeared in 2011 in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4s, also boasts an SGX543 driver.
The S1 is, as you would expect, much more compressed, and is encased in resin in order to give it extra protection.
AppleInsider says that the AppleWatch firmware is not considered as an actual iOS release, as it requires a paired iPhone in order to operate, but...
The video above is a bit cheesy, but what it represents could be pretty exciting news if you happen to live in Silicon Valley and enjoy comic books (and/or comic book movies). The incomparable Steve Wozniak (former co-founder of Apple) and the comic book master himself, Stan Lee, are teaming up to bring a brand new Comic Con to Silicon Valley!
The event will be held on March 19 and 20, 2016 at the San Jose Convention Center. The SVCC plans to invite a number of Hollywood celebrities and tech leaders across multiple media, including movies, TV, music, gaming, electronics, apps and emerging technologies. Now I wish I lived in Silicon Valley!
Thanks for the tip, @cr6!
Here's something fun and interesting you might get a kick out of... it turns out that what you are doing right this moment (engaging with the community of this internet forum) is actually quite good for you. At least, that's what a recent study concluded which was published in the Computers In Human Behavior.
Specifically, the study concluded that "Internet forums have a positive impact on life satisfaction and lead to increased involvement in communities outside the confines of the online world." Here's a quote with more of the details,
The study approached users on a range of interest, lifestyle and hobby forums. The study split users into two groups: stigmatized subjects (like mental health discussion), and non-stigma related forums (sports, cooking and the rest). They were then...
