Tag Heuer decides it wants to make a smartwatch, too

Just days after Apple's new smartwatch debut -- and subsequently panning the device in a way only a too-expensive-for-you luxury brand can -- TAG Heuer has decided it wants to make a smartwatch as well. "We want to launch a smartwatch at TAG Heuer," Jean-Claude Biver, who oversees watchmaking...

Sir, I don't think we service that device any longer

In the age of Retina displays and App Stores, Apple's MessagePad -- lovingly referred to as the "Newton," after its OS -- isn't a terribly capable device. It was axed from the company's lineup shortly after Steve Jobs returned to the company, but Apple would return to the...

If you don't like the Apple Watch, don't buy one

Since yesterday's Apple announcement of the Apple Watch (or Watch or just Watch) I have seen a cavalcade of arguments against the device. This is to be expected. I'll grant you, Apple isn't fighting against a bunch of crappy smartphones. This isn't some huge problem to solve, it's more like a...

Band accuses Apple of ripping off their music video concept

There was a lot to see during yesterday's epic Apple event, and it all started with a very cool video called "Perspective."

If Apple announces a wearable that's not available until next year...

It'll be genius*. In no small part because, as of right now, no one has reported seeing a single millimeter of the device. If Apple shows off what it has been cooking but delays manufacture until later this year, it will also be one of the bigger tactical shifts for Apple during Tim Cook's tenure....

An edge-case perspective of Apple

Throughout the last decade, reading rumors about Apple products gave me an edge-case perspective of Apple. With each new rumor, I have an internal discussion that determines the validity with a "yes" or a "no." In the past couple years, the dialogue changed from "yeah, that would be cool" to...
