    watchOS 5.1.2 adds Control Center toggle for Walkie-Talkie availability

    These ‘bug fix’ versioned Apple software betas keep delivering with all sorts of little additions. New in watchOS 5.1.2 is a Control Center toggle for Walkie-Talkie. Up to now, Walkie-Talkie availability had to be changed in the Walkie-Talkie app itself. There’s a switch at the top of the friends list in the Walkie-Talkie app to toggle availability. With watchOS 5.1.2, you can now do this from anywhere in watchOS thanks to a new Control Center toggle.

    A first look at Spotify on the Apple Watch

    Spotify is currently testing an Apple Watch app that’s expected to debut soon. We’ve been able to get access to Spotify’s Apple Watch app ahead of its release to try it out and find out what’s in store. The app itself appears to be an initial release with very basic features. There’s no offline support for playing Spotify songs on the Apple Watch away from your iPhone, and you can’t stream songs to an Apple Watch over LTE.

    Apple adds heart monitoring to Apple Watch

    Apple just announced a new Watch called Apple Watch Series 4. The new Apple Watch comes with a larger, edge-to-edge screen, giving it the biggest facelift since its launch in 2014. The screen is 30 percent larger than the previous version, while the device itself has become thinner.

    Apple Watch Series 4 Reviews are a Sad Reminder of How Lost Wear OS Is

    Apple announced its Apple Watch Series 4 a week ago and the early reviews that dropped this week are about as glowing as is possible. I’m not shocked by that either, because it was pretty obvious as Apple revealed their new watch that it was the most impressive hardware from their fall event. The reason it’s sad is the fact that it shows how badly Google and its partners screwed up wearables on Android and just how far behind Apple they are.

    Apple Watch Series 4's processing power will blow you away

    The new S4 chip in the Apple Watch Series 4 is an absolute beast when it comes to processing power. Apple didn’t brag too much about the S4 during its September keynote other than saying the chip is two times faster than last year’s model. There aren’t any benchmark scores for it. However, a developer recently put the S4 through some serious tests — and the results are insanely impressive

    You Guys Realize The Apple Watch Is Going To Flop, Right?

    Few analysts or writers will outright say it, but I will: the Apple Watch is going to flop. And I bet a lot of other people are thinking the same thing for many good reasons. Apple has become a perennial hit maker, the company other companies copy. Apple really gets design. In the past 14 years, it has given us the iPod (the prototypical MP3 player), the iPhone (the prototypical smartphone), the Macbook Air (the prototypical laptop), and the iPad (the prototypical tablet).

    The Apple Watch's Insanely Great Economics

    The most compelling case you can make for the Apple Watch is that it frees us from our phones: the ones Apple sold us. No longer will we have to pull them out to hail Ubers, check Instagram, or send texts. As TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino elegantly points out, “There are very few products that allow you to hand someone cash and be given back time. This will be the Apple Watch metric to track: time saved.”

    Apple Helps Push U.S. Watch Sales to Biggest Drop in Seven Years

    U.S. watch sales fell the most in seven years in June, one of the first signs Apple Inc.’s watch is eroding demand for traditional timepieces. Retailers sold $375 million of watches during the month, 11 percent less than in June 2014, according to data from NPD Group. The 14 percent decline in unit sales was the largest since 2008, according to Fred Levin, head of the market researcher’s luxury division.

    Apple suffers a blow in its patent war against Samsung

    The United States Patent and Trademark Office is reexamining one of the key patents in the battle between Apple and Samsung. Specifically, it is claiming that design patent D618677 — essentially the front of the iPhone 3G — was not sufficiently described by Apple. The decision could affect the size of the damages that Samsung is supposed to pay Apple, but a final number won't be determined for a while as the case is still with the courts awaiting a third trial.

In a past work-life, I was working with TouchCo’s developer kit at around the same time that Roger Linn was experimenting with the ideas that would become the Linnstrument. TouchCo got bought, my project morphed from hardware to software as the company turned into Zya, and I moved onto other things, putting the interest and ambition in gesture control on the backburner.

    So I installed Windows 95 on my Apple Watch

    With a 520 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, the Apple Watch packs a lot of computing horsepower into a very small package. On paper, its processor alone is about twenty-five times faster than the average 386, and 512 MB was the size of a hard drive in the mid nineties, not memory. As a result, I was feeling confident that the Apple Watch had the ability to run one of the most revered desktop operating systems Redmond has ever produced.

    It took me nine months to realise it, but the only useful thing about Apple’s £479 smartwatch was the weather notifications. Towards the end of May, I took off the Apple Watch I’d been wearing for nine months. I’ll never put it on again. I’d been wearing the £479 38mm Apple Watch with a sapphire screen, stainless steel shell and white sport band – something I genuinely appreciated as an article of jewellery – since we bought it at the launch in April last year.

    Apple Watch sales are down 55%

    A new report from market intelligence firm IDC shows Apple Watch sales have dropped 55% since the product was launched in early 2015. The watch debuted to a backlog of orders and 3.6 million units were shipped in its first three months on the market. But sales plummeted to just 1.6 million in the latest quarter, according to IDC. That's in spite of a price discount. Apple it set to deliver an updated operating system for its smartwatch this fall -- called watchOS 3 -- which promises new features and improved performance. It's widely expected to also introduce a redesigned "Apple Watch 2" in the autumn.

Sleep apnea affects one in 15 Americans, or about 18 million people in the U.S. alone. Sleep apnea can cause a wide range of unwanted health problems including headaches, depression, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, or or even heart attacks or heart failure.
