Check out this stunning iWatch concept! 
Check out this stunning iWatch concept video from Set Solution. Apple is reportedly producing a smartwatch device that will run a version of iOS 8 and features several biometric sensors. A recent report from the Wall Street Journal states that Apple is planning multiple versions of the “iWatch” later this year. The devices will include more than 10 sensors to track and monitor health and fitness data. Taiwanese manufacturer Quanta Computer Inc. i...

Google can't define sh*t! What are you talking about. Like the way they were trying to define the smartphone with a Blackberry clone. Every review is saying that if this is how the smartwatch will operate, they don't want it. One reviewer said the thing is annoying and don't stop buzzing and lighting up with alerts. This surely is not the only thing a smartwatch should do.

What Reviews are you talking about because I have been reading differently. Most reviews for the most part is hardware based. Which I agree with, but from the interface perspective. Most people have said this is what a smart watch should be. I will be curious to see what Apps come out on July 7.

Even Woz said the Galaxy wear is crap.  Hence, in my view - Google, Sony and Samsung haven't define the smartwatch market!  The whole world (Samsung and Google included) is waiting on Apple to ignite the wearable market. Amateur hour is over.

Sony and Samsung decided to make their Smart watch themselves and the Galaxy Gear and Sony Smart Watch are not Android Wear products.

You have your opinions and that is fine. But Apple has not always gotten everything right the first time. Siri, Mobile.Me, Ping, Maps, iOS 7 etc all are all examples of products it took Apple sone iterations to define after release.

That said, we can just agree to disagree, and if and when Apple releases something we shall see what interface the decide to adopt or reinvent.

 "Apple isn’t trying to sell stuff for the sake of commercial success. Apple sells things that allow us to be more human, more empowered and have more dignity."
Despite competing in the same markets, John Martellaro believes Amazon could never be like Apple. According to Martellaro, one company is trying to get people to spend as much money as they can while the other is trying to empower the human race and is being handsomely rewarded for it.

Ok, if someone stole your car and add

1) New tires (Google add customised keyboard)

2) A nice multimedia system (Google add widgets)

3) A nice set of rims (Google add notification)

4) Sat Nav ( Google add turn by turn)

Does this makes your car any less stolen? Why can't you understand this?

My analogy of the Blackberry/Apple scenario is also relevant here. Apple could have easily copied the Blackberry interface and add more features to it. You are arguing that this is acceptable because companies build on the technology of others. But this still would have made the iPhone a copy/ rip off of iP Blackberry.

In the same way, Android is and will always be a stolen product.

This is boring now, time to move on!!!

+Neeraj M I think with the new iphone and a more open os apple will have a winner in their hands . Your post would have been relevant 6 months back but we are nearing the release of iPhone 6 which is pretty much expected to have larger display , design changes and the most open ios to date( even if android had those features for a long time it is still a massive update for iPhone lovers and general technology lovers ).

Security made by Apple

There are many bad as well as innovative guys often behaving like terrorists and always on the way to compromise digital identities. So it's an ongoing fight for companies to keep the secrets and to obtain the confidence of customers.

Status Report July 2014

Beside some iOS and OSX updates Apple also released a couple of human updates and it's widely expected that there is also an update of the product line-up later this year.

The Executives

Responsibilities of Peter Oppenheimer, Chief Financial Officer, moved over to Luca Maestri.
New to the board is Angela Ahrendts.
Sadly, Lisa P. Jackson, Vice President for Environmental Initiatives, still isn't part of the Executive board.

The Beatles

CUPERTINO, California, May 28, 2014
Apple today announced it has agreed to acquire the critically acclaimed subscription streaming music service Beats Music, and Beats Electronics, which makes the popular Beats headphones, speakers and audio software. As part of the acquisition, Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre will join Apple. Apple is acquiring the two companies for a total of $3 billion, consisting of a purchase price of approximately $2.6 billion and approximately $400 million that will vest over time.

Eddy Cue ...
“Music is such an important part of Apple’s DNA and always will be.
The addition of Beats will make our music lineup even better, from free streaming with iTunes Radio to a world-class subscription service in Beats, and of course buying music from the iTunes Store as customers have loved to do for years.”

As announced Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine will join Apple but nobody knows what their duties will be.

The Products

An open question is which new devices will join Apple's kernel this year.
A warm welcome in advance from all ecosystem dwellers.
Commissioners for Migration, Refugees and Integration, aka software developers, will take care of you and cure all childhood illnesses.

About an admired German car and the invention of intelligent parking

Software engineer Randy Adams worked at NeXT before heading to Adobe, where he co-created Acrobat, and the PDF. At that time, he and Jobs both ran Porsche 911s. To avoid car-door dings, they parked near each other, taking up three parking spaces between them. One day, Steve rushed over to Randy's cubicle and told him they had to move the cars.

"Randy, we have to hide the Porsches. Ross Perot is coming by and thinking of investing in the company, and we don’t want him to think we have a lot of money.”

They moved the cars around to the back of NeXT’s offices in Palo Alto. Perot invested $20 million in the company in 1987 and took a seat on the board.

Thanks for reading.

This has to be one of the most irrelevant chart of useless data I have ever seen. 
Like it has already been stated: IF there is an iwatch, then some of this might apply (even though it is speculation at best with nothing to back it up). Until then, why oh why do people post this nonsense?

Why are android folks obsessed with pointing Apple copied their features?
Writing for Tech Opinion John Kirk answered several critics lamenting that the company did not announce anything new at WWDC14 and most of the features in iOS 8 were inspired by Android: “What is it with our fetish for first? Where did we ever get the notion being first was all that mattered and — perversely — that nothing that comes after “first” matters at all? Tech is not a race. It’s not some Olympic event, where you run 100 meters, cross the...
