Apple Watch, Apple Watch Series 2, Apple Watch Series 3. The naming convention suits Apple's approach to its watch updates. They've felt like gradual iterations, not huge leaps.

A convincing image published by 9to5mac appears to be a leaked Apple marketing shot of the presumed Series 4, which is widely expected to be unveiled at Apple's big Sept. 12 event alongside rumored new iPhones. Apple didn't respond to CNET's request for comment on the image. But assuming it's the real deal, it shows a brand-new, improved and information-heavy watch face. It also appears to have a bigger edge-to-edge screen, as rumored. (It's a bit hard to tell without an older model in the shot for direct comparison.)If you're wondering what Apple's … [Read more...] about Apple Watch 4 wish list: These key changes could put it over the top

Editorial By Daniel Eran Dilger Sunday, May 06, 2018, 12:58 pm PT (03:58 pm ET) Twenty years ago today Steve Jobs introduced iMac, an ambitious new Mac aimed specifically at easy Internet access. It not only redefined the design and styling of tech products but charted a strategic course that would take Apple from being a minority PC maker to the world's most valuable tech company. Most importantly, iMac had an impact because it courageously made bold decisions that conventional thinking assumed to be wrong.Back on Track with iMac Just ten months prior to the iMac introduction (at the May 1998 event the company named "Back on Track"), Jobs and his hand-selected management team had taken over control of Apple and killed a series of projects and products to focus the company on two simple product lines: the 1997 white desktop Power Mac and a curvey black notebook PowerBook, both powered by a G3 processor. iMac was a unique opportunity for Apple to show off its core competency in … [Read more...] about 20 Years of iMac: Steve Jobs iconic internet machine that courageously reinvented Apple

Any hill will do. And it is not just for distance runners, either. Hill repeats are an integral part of many athletes’ conditioning programs. Football players, for example, can use hill sprints to improve their … [Read more...] about Apple Watch hill running: Series 3 altimeter takes running to new heights
