March 9 Apple Announcement: Apple Makes a Fashion Statement with the Apple Watch

image

Would you take fashion advice from Apple's Tim Cook, Eddie Cue, Jimmy Iovine, Phil Schiller or even Dr. Dre or Jony Ive? If so, you would probably wear an untucked dress shirt with a button undone or a slim fitting dark t-shirt all the time (except when getting knighted by the Queen.) Thankfully, their fashion sense didn't dictate our options for the Apple Watch.

"It's not just with you, it's on you." That's how Tim Cook explains Apple's new Apple Watch. It's everything we hoped it to be, and more! 



March 9 Apple Announcement: How Will ResearchKit Change Our Lives?

image

Wow, evidently Apple is not satisfied at having nearly a billion iPhones out there in the world, they are preparing to use them to battle breast cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and Parkinsons just for a start! During today's announcement, Apple rolled out an applications framework, called ResearchKit, which will be openly available for the developing of custom apps to aid in monitoring and surveying potential participants. This new framework, available today, comes with five applications that will enable the use of Apple iPhone sensors. The data gathered can be analysed for symptoms and used to track progress while also helping to minimize the impacts of these grave health issues.



March 9 Apple Announcement: Surprise! Apple News We Didn't Expect

image

Apple normally tries to be super secretive before an announcement, but the Apple Watch was an anomaly. Apple took the rare step of introducing it months before it was shipping or even finalized. As Apple did not have a smartwatch product line to protect, they could afford to do so. Plus, it froze consumer purchases of competing gadgets. Still, we didn't know everything about the Apple Watch, until today. And we still have more to learn, once it reaches consumers' hands (and wrists!)



March 9 Apple Announcement: Apple TV-Same Device, Lower Price. Featuring HBO NOW.

The Apple TV hasn't had a product refresh in about three years. So when Tim Cook brought up the Apple TV at today's event, I was so excited to see what Apple was about to reveal. At long last I thought, a new Apple TV! Something fresh and refined to compete with the likes of the Chromecast and Roku streaming devices!



March 9 Apple Announcement: Medical Research Apps Will Help Researchers Cure Diseases

Small sample sizes, frequency of data, subjective data, and one-way communication have always been issues in the Medical Research field. Research Kit is a software kit built in to iPhone that allows researchers to collect data about certain diseases right from iPhone users who have these diseases.



Apple Will Join Dow Jones on March 18

Apple, the world's largest publicly traded company according to market capitalization, will join the Dow Jones Industrial Average after the market closes on March 18, according to a report by Reuters on Friday. In a bit of irony, Apple will replace AT&T among the 30 stocks included in the Dow. Originally primarily a telegraph and telephone company, AT&T has been eclipsed by Apple. The goal of the change is to maintain the weighting of the technology sector in the Dow following a stock split by Visa, according to the press release on Mac Daily News. Ever since Apple's seven-for-one stock split, market analysts had been expecting that Apple would be added to the Dow.

Tomorrow, during Apple’s “Spring Forward” event, Tim Cook is expected to officially launch the Apple Watch, five months after first announcing the device last September. This will be the first time Apple has released a new product category since Cook became CEO.



Website Lets You See How Your Customized Apple Watch Will Look

Mix Your Watch is a new website that lets you try different combinations of Apple Watch cases and bands to see which you like best. Of course, you likely won't be able to decide for sure until you see it in person, but this site can give you an idea of the combinations you might prefer. 



Apple iPad Pro Pushed to September

image

As users migrate to tablets, in particular iPads, to replace their laptops, there has been speculation that Apple might bridge the gap between the iPad Air and the MacBook Air. An iPad Pro, at just over 12 inches, with some kind of a keyboard case or cover, like Microsoft's Surface has, could be just what the doctor ordered. There are also suggestions that a Pro version of the iPad might support USB 3.0 for faster data transfer and charging and even support for a wired keyboard. I had a Microsoft Surface with the magnetically-attached keyboard cover and that was a nice touch (no pun intended) that I'd like to see Apple mimic.
