“Watch Out Android Wear!”
One Week with the Apple Watch.
After having the Apple Watch for over a week now I have found it to be a very enjoyable experience. From being in the classroom, glancing at notifications, to being in PE or out for a run, logging my activity. Its actually been a very useful tool. This new product comes from the post Steve Jobs era with new CEO, Tim Cook at the helm, heading in the right direction for Apple’s future. The interface is of something new to iOS users. It could be a slight learning curve, at first, but to navigate the new interface Apple has made it easier by making things fluid and familiar to its bigger brother operation system, iOS. It just takes getting used to and after less than a day having it, I got the hang of it.
The heart rate tracking is quite fun actually. Its pretty cool to see your heart rate thought the week and with Apple’s new HealthKit, communication with your doctor is easier than ever. The new ability to submit and or show your weekly and daily blood pressure and heart rate to your doctor is amazing. No more high blood pressure spikes at the doctors office. Now you have a more accurate outlook on your health. Sleep tracking is kinda neat too. Its interesting to see your lowest heart rate while sleeping and an accurate time of your sleep.
The battery is as expected for a first generation device. It just depends on what you do with it in that day. If you do a lot including workouts, notifications, and checking time, you get the expected 18+ hours of use. I’ve got it to last about 2 days which is great compared to the 18 hours as told by Apple. Charging the watch is very cool. You just set it on its small puck sized charger and it wirelessly, inductively charges. It takes only 2 hours to get a full charge with the 5W adapter that comes with it and only 1 hour with Apple’s 12W adapter (sold separately).
The Watch case and materials itself a surprisingly very durable. It still feels like something Apple didn't make and thats not a bad thing. It feels very premium on the wrist which nails the whole point Jonny Ive made when designing this watch. I have the Apple Watch Sport, 42 mm space gray which has the aluminum body and iON-X glass. For example, in wood shop at school, I hit the center of the screen on a metal machine by accident and it didn't even scratch it. I was astonished at its durability. The higher end model;s have the Sapphire Crystal screen which is expected to be even better. So no worries here.
Already there are tons of apps for the watch in the app store. Surpassing Android Wear in just one day of available apps. So no problems finding any app. Android needs to step up its game if they want to compete. All in all this is a great new product that has the potential to live on. The Apple Watch is a game changer to the industry that will set new standards for other companies to follow. Whether you get the current Apple Watch, which is till on backorder after 4 million+ orders, or wait for the second generation. I assure you that you won’t be sorry with your purchase. I highly recommend the Apple Watch.
Apple's 'iWatch' has flexible sapphire screen & wireless charging, 'iPhone 6' to offer one-handed mode, NYT says
As hype builds for Apple's Sept. 9 announcement, yet another report chimes in with alleged details, saying the company's wearable "iWatch" will sport a flexible screen and wireless charging, while the company's larger iPhone models will apparently offer a one-handed mode for ease of use.
Concept by Martin Hajek.
The details were attributed to unnamed "people knowledgeable about the product" in a Thursday report from The New York Times. Most interestingly, the report said the device will boast a flexible display panel protected by a cover made of sapphire.
In addition, Thursday's report claimed that the so-called "iWatch" will rely on a wireless charging method. It added that Apple tested solar charging for the device but couldn't get it to work.
Like other recent reports, it claimed that the so-called "iWatch" isn't likely to launch until next year, while pricing remains unknown.
Sources who spoke with the publication said Apple's wearable device is one of the company's "most ambitious projects to date." It's said to include advanced sensors that will track movements and vital signs, including heart rate, more accurately than any product currently on the market.

As for the so-called "iPhone 6," the report claims that the two new models sized 4.7 and 5.5 inches will come with updated software to accommodate for the larger displays. Specifically, it was said that an optional "one-handed mode" will be included to make it easier to type and control.
Both the new iPhone and "iWatch" are expected to be tightly integrated with one another, utilizing the new "Handoff" functionality of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. And both devices are also rumored to feature near-field communications technology for e-wallet mobile payment services.
The report from the Times comes on the heels of a separate story from The Wall Street Journal, published earlier Thursday, claiming that both Apple's "iPhone 6" and "iWatch" will include NFC functionality for mobile payments. That report also reaffirmed that the "iWatch" will apparently boast a curved OLED display.
It's been claimed that the wrist-worn device will come in two-different sizes, potentially intended for both men and women. Multiple recent reports have suggested the "iWatch" will miss the lucrative holiday shopping season, and will become available to customers in early 2015.
Customers likely won't have to wait that long for the new iPhones, though, as Apple is expected to make them available soon after the Sept. 9 event. If the company sticks to its usual release pattern, the "iPhone 6" will hit store shelves on Sept. 19, though there have been rumors that the 5.5-inch model could launch after the 4.7-inch variant due to alleged production issues.
All is expected to be revealed at Apple's media event next Tuesday, which kicks off at the Flint Center in Cupertino, Calif., at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern. AppleInsider will be there live, and readers can get up-to-the-minute alerts with the official AppleInsider app for iPhone and iPad.
Apple's 2014 iPhone will be introduced at a September 9 media event. It will include a larger, redesigned form factor with 4.7" and 5.5" diagonal screens.
Apple's new iPhone 6 will be introduced at a September 9 media event at the Flint Center, the same location where Apple debuted the original Mac 30 years ago. An overwhelming number of iPhone 6 rumors and part leaks have given us a near-complete look at the device ahead of its launch.
With the iPhone 5, Apple increased the screen size of the device from 3.5 inches to 4 inches, and with the iPhone 6, the phone's display is going to grow even larger. Though Apple experimented with a range of screen sizes, the company settled on 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches for its two devices, which will bring the next iPhone in line with competing Android and Windows phones that have adopted larger displays.
Over the course of the last several years, consumer preference has shifted towards bigger screens, and Apple is now prepared to meet consumer demand for larger devices.
Rumored sizes of the new iPhone 6 compared to iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPad air
Along with a larger screen, both models of the iPhone 6 are expected to adopt design elements from the iPad and the iPod touch. Alleged iPhone 6 schematicsand part leaks have suggested the iPhone 6 will be considerably thinner than the current iPhone 5s, which is 7.6 mm. The final version of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is said to be 6.9 mm thick, 138 mm long, and 66 mm wide. The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is said to be 7.1 mm thick, 158 mm long, and 78 mm wide.
The phones will also include rounded iPad-style corners, pill-shaped volume buttons, thick antenna bands, a rounded True Tone dual-LED flash, an embedded Apple logo, and a power button located on the right side of the device.
Rumors have suggested at least some models of the iPhone 6 might feature a durable sapphire display and both the 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 are expected to see camera improvements. The larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 might incorporate Optical Image Stabilization as a differentiating feature from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and it is also possible that the larger iPhone 6 will be the only model with a 128GB storage capacity, which has been mentioned in rumors and seen in leaked schematics. As a result, the larger phone might have a higher price tag.
Images of a completed logic board have suggested the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will continue to offer 16GB of storage space at the low end, along with 1GB of RAM, support for NFC, and a Qualcomm MDM9625M LTE Modem that supports speeds of up to 150 Mbps. Specifications for the larger 5.5-inch iPhone remain unknown, but the device will likely include many of the same components.

Due to production issues that may or may not be resolved, the larger 5.5-inch iPhone could launch alongside the 4.7-inch version, or at a somewhat later date.
Apple plans to announce the iPhone 6 on Sept. 9 as well as the new operating system that it will come with. The iOS 8 has been most likely scheduled on Sept. 10, following the trend Apple follows with its Tuesday iPhone releases and its Wednesday iOS updates.
Youtube/fileThe iOS 8: To be released on the same date as the iPhone 6?
Before the Cupertino company puts out the new iOS 8, there usually precedes a time where the company would release a near-final developer state of the OS. This version has been called the "Gold Master version" and is usually released a week before the operating system's actual release.
With the iOS 8 speculated to come out on Sept. 10, the Gold Master Version is then supposed to come out on Sept. 3. However, there have been no news from various developers about them being notified of an iOS 8 GM version yet.
With the GM version still unavailable, further speculations place it's release sometime after Apple's keynote presentation for the iPhone 6 on Sept. 9.
Apple had only recently given out invitations for journalists and other people of interest to its Sept. 9 event. The invitation came with the phrase, "Wish we could say more," along with the date 9.9.2014.
The phrase could have meant anything – the announcement of Apple's wearable, the iWatch for instance – but it could also point to the possibility of the Gold Master versions release.
If the release would happen sometime after the Sept. 9 keynote, the iOS 8's release to the public could be pushed back since the Gold Master version would be up for at least a week.
With still a few days to go until Apple's media event where it will undoubtedly announce its launch plans for iOS 8, the company is already preparing to seed its carrier partners with an iOS 8.0.1 update for testing, according to BGR. Details on the update are unknown, as is a release timeframe, although last year Apple released a launch-day iOS 7.0.1 update for the iPhone 5s and 5c to fix a few bugs on those devices.
Visits to MacRumors from devices running iOS 8.0.1 on Apple's networks
MacRumors has seen a significant increase in iOS 8.0.1 web log activity coming from Apple's networks over the past couple of weeks, although the first signs of the version appeared as long ago as mid-July.
The last developer release of iOS 8 came one month ago in the form of iOS 8 beta 5, with the company likely holding back further seeds as it finalizes the software for its upcoming hardware. A sixth beta was reportedly seeded to carrier partners a couple of weeks ago, but with much more limited distribution for that release, developers have not had access to dig into it to look for new hints about the next-generation iOS devices.
1: RAM Density Definition
RAM Density is the
capacity or size of a DIMM module or the capacity or size of each DRAM unit on
a DIMM or RIMM. Density is normally referred to in megabits (Mb) when referring
to DRAM units and in megabytes (MB) when referring to an entire DIMM
2: Density vs. Speed
When trying to
determine what kind of RAM you need, the density of each DRAM unit on a DIMM is
probably more important than the speed of the DIMM. For example, PC133 DIMMs
are backward compatible to PC100 and PC66. On the other hand, 256 and 512
megabit technology DIMMs will not work in many motherboards.
How To Determine RAM Density
It's hard to figure
out the density of a DIMM because there are multiple industry "standards" on
how describe a DIMM, many of which are contradictory. Some retailers list the
capacity of each DRAM unit in MB and the number of DRAM units on the DIMM. For
example, a 256 MB 16X16 PC133 Non-ECC Unbuffered DIMM has 16 DRAM chips, and
each chip is 16 MB in size. The density of each DRAM unit is found by
multiplying 16 MB by 8 to get the value in bits rather than bytes (one byte is
8 bits). In this case, the density is 128 Mb.
4: What Your Motherboard Will Take
You may know that
the maximum size RAM module your computer will accept is 256 MB and that it
needs to meet a specific specification, such as PC133. Assuming the naming
scheme of the last step, if you were to purchase a 256 MB 32X8 Non-ECC PC133
Unbuffered DIMM, the density is 256 Mb. This was determined by multiplying the
number 32 by 8 bits. But because compatibility is based on the density of EACH
DRAM unit on a memory module instead of the capacity of the DIMM as a whole,
this DIMM probably won't work in your machine.
A motherboard that
only accepts 256 MB and smaller sized DIMMS will work only with memory that is
based on 128 Mb technology or lower. The DIMM in this example has 8 DRAM units,
each with a capacity of 32 MB. If 16 DRAM units were used, the capacity of this
DIMM would be 512 MB, and it would only work in motherboards that accept 512 MB
DIMMs or higher, even though it is just 256 MB in size. This is due to the
density of each DRAM unit on the DIMM.
What Will Happen?
maximum capacity is based on the density of each DRAM unit on the DIMM and
assumes the maximum number of DRAM units are on the DIMM. If you try to install
a higher density DIMM than your computer can handle, one of two things will
happen: 1) Your computer will not boot, and you will receive memory POST beeps,
letting you know there is a problem. 2) The motherboard will only recognize
half of the memory.
