We’ve been hearing the rumors that Apple has plans for a wearable computing device known as the iWatch. Whether or not the device is merely a patent that will never see the light of day, or if it is an actual product in the making remains to be seen, but thanks to a report from the Financial Times, their sources have indicated to them that Apple is currently on a hiring spree for iWatch designers and people who will be able to help Apple address “hard engineering problems that they’ve not been able to solve.” The report goes on to state that Apple could also be considering the acquisition of smaller outside firms who might be able to help them resolve of their issues, and at the same time keep “key personnel” on the project. No word on when the rumored iWatch will be released, but multiple sources have pointed at 2014 to be a likely timeframe, with this rumor backed up by KGI analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been pretty spot on with his predictions in the past.
