    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.

    Apple Delays Release Of watchOS 2 Due To Bug

    Apple has delayed the release of watchOS 2, which was expected to be available today to owners of the Apple Watch. “We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected,” an Apple spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly.” Given that watchOS 2 is a high profile release for Apple, a relatively important system must have been affected.

    Google Maps now works on the Apple Watch

    If you're someone who opens Google Maps on your iPhone every day, you'll be glad to hear that getting directions on Apple Watch no longer requires using Apple's own app. Today Google rolled out an update for its iOS Maps app that adds a companion app for your wrist. And while choice is always good, Google seems to have put in a pretty minimal amount of effort for this first release. Driving directions require you to...

    Exploring Apple’s 3D Touch

    I was pretty giddy when Apple revealed 3D Touch at their September event. 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.

    Not Even Silicon Valley Insiders Have Bought Apple Watches

    More than a year ago now, Apple Inc., the world’s most valuable company, announced the Apple Watch—the biggest addition to its product line since the iPhone nearly a decade earlier. In our poll of 101 tech-industry leaders, we asked: So, uh, do you have one? Nearly everyone responded to this question, and for such a tech-savvy audience, their reply does not look good for Apple. Exactly 70 percent of respondents said they did not own a Watch.

    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.

    Why I have finally taken off the Apple Watch for the last time

    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.

    The Apple Watch can detect diabetes with an 85% accuracy, Cardiogram study says

    According to Cardiogram founder Brandon Ballinger’s latest clinical study, the Apple Watch can detect diabetes in those previously diagnosed with the disease with an 85 percent accuracy. The study is part of the larger DeepHeart study with Cardiogram and UCSF. This particular study used data from 14,000 Apple Watch users and was able to detect that 462 of them had diabetes by using the Watch’s heart rate sensor, the same type of sensor other fitness bands using Android Wear also integrate into their systems.
