Apple resisted the idea of a phablet for a long time and so did its customers. But times have changed, and we've moved on. Nowadays an Apple phablet is just what many need. Just don't call it a phablet. Call it a Plus.
Apple was a hungry, underappreciated company for many years both before and after the return of Steve Jobs. Now that Apple has achieved unconstrained, unabashed, tumultuous success—that often treads on customers—what exactly is Apple going to do about it?
The iWatch could radically change our personal security in ways that haven't been discussed. John Martellaro takes to flights of technical fantasy and finally reveals what he hopes the iWatch will do that would completely catch the competition off guard.
Apple's September 9 event won't be about techy things that bloggers want. It won't even be about what the best minds of the Mac Web think Apple needs to deliver. Rather, it'll be about delivering a remarkable, convincing vision that captures our imagination and enthusiasm for a better future.

In another duo of stories, John Martellaro looks at how denying change (by advertisers) can be a modern weapon against consumers. It all seems to fit together in TV land.
