Nintendo to develop games for smartphones

It’s so frustrating watching Nintendo’s reluctance to remove their heads from their rears. Do they not realize the KILLING they would make if they were to realease at least SOME of the classic games for smartphones? Do they not hear the collective cries of gamers worldwide chanting “We want Mario on our phones…!”

Twelve South announces HiRise stand for Apple Watch

This is nice, if you want to use your watch as a clock to wake up to.

Twelve South announces HiRise stand for Apple Watch

Well, considering the Apple Watch is going to need to be charged on a daily basis, and will likely be more cumbersome than an iPhone to charge simply on a bedside table, it will likely make sense for people to have a charging stand to put it on at night.
Besides, for somebody who may already be paying up to $1,000 for the Apple Watch itself, dropping an extra $50 on a stand you’d probably use every night doesn’t really seem all that unreasonable… In for a penny, in for a pound, as they say.

Or you could just hold it in your hand for free.

Apple publishes official Watch battery life estimates; Power Reserve mode to last 72 hours

The watch senses when you raise your wrist and turns on automatically. There is no need to do push any buttons.

Apple publishes official Watch battery life estimates; Power Reserve mode to last 72 hours

I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what they mean…. The screen won’t be ‘on’ all the time in order to conserve battery life. Looks like it may be a return to the original LED digital watches of the eighties, where you had to press a button to see the time. LEDs gave way to lower-power LCDs which used a side-light and then eventually a backlight, both of which still required you to push a button.
I doubt the Apple Watch will offer a continuous time display, but I’m hoping that maybe at least they’ll do something with the accelerometer that can detect when you’re trying to check it, as opposed to requiring some other interaction.

Apple increases iPhone prices in Canada

this was a vicious move by apple’s marketing/sales department. The dollar will climb back up just the same as oil prices. the new macbook is ridiculously overpriced in Canada now. I don’t even want to see the watch.

Apple publishes official Watch battery life estimates; Power Reserve mode to last 72 hours

What do they mean by “Time Check”? Will the Apple Watch be normally with a screen in “OFF” mode in order to save battery? This is ridiculous. When I wear a watch on my wrist I don’t want to tap on screens or push buttons in order to see the time, and I am certainly not worried about “Time Checking” so that the battery doesn’t run out. WTF!

Apple publishes official Watch battery life estimates; Power Reserve mode to last 72 hours

I’d tend to agree, considering what the device is capable of. I know people who don’t want to have to “plug their watch in” every night, but one could have said the same thing about cellular phone users in the days before the iPhone.
Besides, with 72 hours on the “Power Reserve” mode, this thing will still function as a watch for a much more reasonable length of time.

Apple nixed health features from Apple Watch

Not really. If you read in more detail, it says that Apple had more serious ambitions for the health features of the Apple Watch, such as measuring “blood pressure and blood oxygen levels.”
While the Apple Watch as it exists today measures heart rate, it falls short of those more lofty goals. As it notes, Apple had to “settle for the more basic pulse-rate monitoring feature” that we see in the Apple Watch today.

18 hours is reasonable.

Jony Ive: Apple Watch was a 'design challenge'

He’s right with that ‘prison’ statement.  While I think the functionality of the new Microsoft Band is good, it does rather look like an institutional ID bracelet from some futuristic SciFi movie ;-)

Some U.S. retailers disabling Apple Pay in favor of other services?

Well I barely shop at any of these stores as it is, I suppose I will just never shop there now.  One, they are basically telling consumers how the consumer can or can not use their credit/debit cards.  Two, I dont want them tracking things I purchase.  Three, this systems sound less secure than what apple has in place.  Best Buy has been on the decline as it is, and I loathe Walmart anyways.  CVS is the one that truly irks me, but I barely shop there any ways.  The only advantage I see is for the retailer in avoiding the merchant fees of cards.  That wont last long I can almost guarantee it.  Any move that limits how a customer can pay will effectively reduce customer base.

Apple sends out invites for Oct. 16 event

Given the amount of whining I have seen about the Apple TV and the Mac Mini not being updated, I think that is what Apple is talking about.

I’m sure a million Apple Users asking for updated Mac Minis would agree with the line!

Personally, I am looking forward to a new iMac. My 27” 2009 one is grown very long in the tooth. I have my money ready. Am just waiting for something new to come out.

Apple sends out invites for Oct. 16 event

It’s been way too long?  It’s been a year.  How often do you think you should be coming out with new iPads?  Every half year?  (like when you introduced iPad 4 in the fall after you introduced the ironically titled “New iPad” the previous spring?)
