The Apple Watch (née iWatch) was finally announced during Tuesday's September 9th media event. The company's first foray into wearables demonstrates what makes Apple different from its competitors, its ability to engineer a device from the ground up to work in ways no one else has imagined.
Apple announced (among other things) Tuesday that the latest album from U2 would be available on iTunes exclusively until October 13, and that it was free to all iTunes customers. Kelly explains how to get the new album from iTunes on a computer or a mobile device.
Apple has announced the Apple Watch, but at the event two details were skipped over: Battery life and usability for left-handed people. We got the low-down, as noted in the title.
Not only did Apple introduce two fabulous iPhones the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but also started the process of changing the world with Apple Pay and Apple Watch. Again. John Martellaro ponders the significance.
Apple's big media event just wrapped up and there was plenty to see. Kelly Guimont and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to offer up their first impressions on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Apple Watch, Apple Pay, U2's album launch, and more.
U2 fans that also happen to be iTunes Store customers got a special treat at the end of Apple's special media event on Tuesday when the band closed out the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch introduction, and then announced that its new album will be available exclusively through iTunes as a free download. The album will be available exclusively through the iTunes Store through October 13.
Apple announced the Apple Watch at its live media event on Tuesday, bringing and end to rumors that the company has been working on a smart watch device. Not only does it interact with iOS 8 devices, but it also tracks health information, and will be available in two sizes and several colors.
Apple's iOS 8 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will be available on September 17, two days ahead of the brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ship date. iOS 8 includes several new features such as HealthKit and HomeKit.
Apple announced ApplePay, its mobile payment system, at a live event Tuesday. The system requires the just announced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, both of which include NFC support.
Apple is experiencing a rare bit of massive FAIL with the live streaming for Tuesday's media event. From having two audio feeds during the pre-show to a live Chinese translation that makes it hard to hear Apple's executives to the stream itself dropping out to intermittent outages of Apple's site itself, this has so far been a catastrophe for a company that normally gets everything right. And Twitter is in full meltdown over it.
Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Tuesday during its special media event. True to the rumors, the new models are available with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, plus Apple is keeping the 4-inch iPhone 5S in its lineup, too.
The iPod wasn't just another MP3 player, the iPhone wasn't just another smartphone and the iPad wasn't a tablet computer. So then, the 'iWatch' won't be yet another a smart watch -- even if it wraps around your wrist and tells you the time. Contributing Editor Chuck La Tournous throws in his two cents about today's Apple announcement just in time for you to tell him just how wrong he was.
Apple's motion for for judgement as a matter of law or a retrial in its second patent infringement case against Samsung was denied on Monday. The iPhone and iPad maker had hoped to find a way to get a ruling more in its favor in the case, but it appears the U.S. Federal Court wasn't swayed by the company's arguments.

Apple's series of wins in its ongoing patent infringement fight with Samsung have all been slowly eroding away. Samsung's drag-it-out strategy seems to be paying off because the longer the legal fight continues the less Apple looks like a winner.
Apple's September 9 media event is only hours away and The Mac Observer is on location to bring you the latest news and announcements. The company is expected to show off the iPhone 6 as well as the iWatch, and may very well have more surprises in store, too.
