iWatch Leak Could Signal Desperation On Apple’s Side

What do you think of news, or rather, rumors, of Apple’s supposed iWatch? I suppose if there is a company that could reinvent the wheel, most folks would place their bets on Apple, but with their recent stock price going south while rival’s Google breaks the $800 mark quietly without any fanfare, perhaps it is time to explore the possibility that Apple planted leak of the iWatch on purpose.

We reported earlier this month that Apple has lost its iPhone trademark in Brazil to a company known as Gradiente (aka IGB Eletrônica), as the latter had held the iPhone trademark in that part of the world all the way back in the year 2000, which is a good seven years before Apple first released their revolutionary iPhone.

Apple Television SDK in May 2013? [Analyst]

Analyst Peter Misek is making the news today as he has published a round of predictions (speculations) concerning Apple. This one concerns Apple’s HDTV (let’s call it iTV), and according to Mr. Mysek, Apple is going to introduce a software development kit (SDK) that would support a 42″ to 55″ iTV product.

Apple Requires Engineers To Fix iOS Maps

It is rather comforting to hear that the kind of engineers that Apple is looking for would not release a biological weapon on the rest of humanity for no apparent reason as seen in Prometheus, but rather, it will be for a far more humane and holistic purpose – to fix all that is wrong on the iOS Maps service. In fact, Apple has placed up new job postings on […]
