AppleInsider reports that Tim Cook has been revealing some interesting snippets about the forthcoming Apple Watch during a stopover in London on his way back from visiting Germany and Israel.
Talking to Britain’s Telegraph, Cook said that the Apple Watch has been designed to replace your electronic car key and key fob, being part of Apple’s wider plan to do away with the need to carry a wallet.
Cook did not reveal exactly how this would be achieved, and whether or not Apple will be working together with automakers to create an Apple Watch car key, but maybe we’ll hear more details when the watch is launched by Apple on March 9.
During a visit to London’s Covent Garden Apple Store today, Cook also talked about how Apple will “tweak” its retail strategy in order to accommodate the...
It looks like the forthcoming Apple Watch is about to become a genuine fashion icon with an extraordinary marketing spread in the fashion bible Vogue.
Following on from the exciting news that Apple is to hold an event to launch the Apple Watch on March 9, Fortune reports that the 12-page spread appears in the March issue of Vogue, which is, apparently, for the fashion-challenge among us, one of the most prestigious issues of the year, as it’s the month when the fashion houses launch their spring collections.
The glossy spread shows three versions of the watch—a leather-bound standard version, the rubber-banded Sport, and the gold luxury edition. There are no exact details about price, other than that it starts at $349. The luxury edition is rumoured to cost in the region of five...
It seems that Apple has added several new companies to its Apple Maps Acknowledgements page, which could hint to the fact that the company plans to improve its mapping app. The Acknowledgements page lists all of the sources that provide information to Apple for the Maps app and now new listings include GasBuddy/OpenStore and GreatSchools.
AppleMapsMarketing publication speculates that this could lead to Maps upgrades like gas prices on gas station locations and school data for school locations. As you probably know, GasBuddy.com delivers information regarding local gas prices. On the other hand, GreatSchools.org is a community-based site that aggregates information about schools, such as students enrolled, available programs, ratings, and academic test scores.

A fresh report coming from research company Smartwatch Group is estimating that just 6.8 million smartwatches were sold last year. The average price was at around $189, which is down by 16 percent from the selling price of $225 seen in 2013.
The total market volume in 2014 was $1.29 billion, up from $711 million in 2013. Overall unit sales have seen a big 82 percent year over year increase. While these are big numbers, it's something pretty normal for a nascent industry.
Pascal Koenig, managing partner of Smartwatch Group, said the following:
"The early announcement of the Apple Watch in September hurt sales of competitive products, and there was no available product offering from Apple. While offerings in the wellness and sports market from companies like Garmin, Fitbit, Withings...
JP Morgan Chase is the largest bank in the United States, thus having millions of iOS users. The company was among the first ones to announce support for Apple Pay. During a recent conference call, JPMorgan Chase executives announced that Chase Bank has activated over one million Apple Pay accounts since the service launched last year.

Bloomberg reports that a Texas jury has ordered Apple to pay out $532.9 million in a patent infringement case brought by Smartflash LLC. The company says Apple has used its technology in iTunes without their consent.
Smartflash was initially seeking $852 million, but the court decided that Apple needs to pay slightly more than half a billion dollars. According to Bloomberg, it sees that the patents in question were related to “data storage and managing access through payment systems.”
Susan Decker and Dennis Robertson with the publication reported the following:
Closely held Smartflash LLC, which claimed that Apple infringed three patents, was seeking $852 million in damages, while Apple said it was worth $4.5 million at most. A federal jury in Tyler, Texas, where Smartflash is...
Adonit has been founded in 2010 with a Kickstarter campaign, a company which is focused on providing consumer electronics and software, including capacitive styluses and related SDKs mainly for the iPad. Now the company is releasing its first fiapp for iPad - Forge.
Described as a 'digital workspace for visual thinking', the free app can be viewed as a visual brainstorming tool that can help designers in their projects. Albeit it's specifically designed to work with Adonit's pressure-sensitive Jot Touch stylus, it will work with any generic stylus and even your fingers, as a matter of fact.
Speaking to TNW, Peiter Buick, Adonit’s chief design officer, said the following:
"Forge is a space to work like visual thinkers do. t’s a place where you can pull an inspiration, push an idea...
iDownload Blog features a really cool new app for the artistically inclined. Called Astropad, it was created by two ex-Apple engineers, Matt Ronge and Giovanni Donelli.
The app works by interfacing with the Mac client via Wi-Fi or USB, so that the strokes that you make on your iPad are reproduced in the corresponding Mac app, whether it be Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Pixelmator, and so on.
iDownload Blog says that pretty much any pressure-sensitive stylus on the market will work with the app, with stylus strokes being transferred to the Mac with smooth, 60-frames-per-second movement. This fluidity is apparently due to the proprietary Liquid technology, which is said to be almost three times more fluid in its responsiveness than Apple’s AirPlay.
