    Remember last year when Scot Wilson debut his take on the iPod Nano wristwatch?

    Remember when Wilson couldn't secure a manufacturer for the design, leaving the concept in limbo?

    Remember how he then decided to post his creation on Kickstarter.com to raise funding, and in a month raised nearly $1,000,000 from 13,500 backers?

    Yea, neither do I, but Wilson's beautiful creations will be sold in Apple Retail Stores across the country this week. ...

As lawmakers continue to poke and prod around anything and everything that appears to threaten or outright violate the mobile privacy of smartphone users, there's a strong possibility that Apple will remain in - or at least close to - the center of attention on Capitol ...

    The developer prerelease of Widge, a framework designed by Peter Hajas, has opened up the avenue to develop and design widgets for iOS devices.

However, there are some valid concerns about the effect of widgets on iOS devices:

    • Battery life
