  • Apple Rumored to be Experimenting with the Possibility of an iWatch


    According to a report from The New York Times, Apple may possibly be experimenting with wristwatch-like devices made of curved glass in its research and developmental labs. Two people who were familiar with the project reportedly told Nick Bilton (of NYT) that the watch would operate on Apple’s iOS platform and stand apart from its competitors based on the research it is doing on how glass can curve around the human body.

    The report goes on to question several things such as whether or not said device will come equipped with Siri, tie into Maps, serve as a wireless payment device, etc. At the same time, it offers a recap on many of Apple’s moves over the years, placing it in a prime position to lead charge for wearable computing devices. Rumors on an Apple-produced smartwatch have surfaced repeatedly over the last few years but the past three months have seen additional speculation on the topic.

    The creator of Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines, Bruce Tognazzini, predicted on his blog that Apple would release an iWatch. Calling it “The iWatch,” Tognazzini said the device would be filling a “gaping hole in the Apple ecosystem… [facilitating and coordinating] not only the activities of all the other computers and devices we use, but a wide array of devices to come.” He did give a caveat to his prediction, saying that it was not based on insider information but rather a “solid understanding of Apple, its products, the problem, and the opportunity.”

      Just saw this on channel 3 news. This is stupid. Wasting time on a watch and the iphone5 still feels like a beta phone when its not jailbroken. Fix the operating system cause nobody wants a watch ipod if u have a great phone.
