Well, the cat’s out of the bag, courtesy of The Wall Street Journal. It is my favorite “go-to” resource for all things Apple. Because of their strong association with Apple Inc., their information is extremely reliable.
It looks like we will have a spiffy IWatch for sale in late Fall – just in time for gift-giving during the Christmas season. And, coincidentally, I have a birthday around the same time. (Hint! Hint!)
The IWatch is going to be a welcoming gadget in my life. I am tired of carrying around my phone when I am out for a walk and often wished I could just strap it to my wrist. Hands-free is the way to go and it is more efficient.
Here is the WSJ scoop:
“Apple Inc. is planning multiple versions of a smartwatch likely to be launched in the fall, people familiar with the matter said, as the company tries to counter wearable devices from Google Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. and others.
The new wrist device from Apple will incorporate more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness, these people said. Apple aims to address an overarching criticism of existing smartwatches that they don’t provide functions significantly different from that of a smartphone, said a person familiar with the matter.”
The IWatch will also be a health and fitness tracker so now we can stay really obsessed with our health if that strikes your fancy. As a cardiac patient, I know I will value this commodity in the IWatch.

Lots of excitement surrounds the World Wide Developers Conference set to start in San Francisco on Monday, June 2nd at 10:00 AM Pacific (1:00 PM Eastern)
Apple is slated to unveil many exciting new developments culled from behind the barricades of Apple Inc.
Seriously Microsoft. What sort of passive-aggressive, self-destructive move propelled you to release the long-awaited Microsoft Word iPad App which came encumbered with the addition of a $99.00 a year subscription?
To expect consumers to pay $99.00/year to use this App when Apple’s iPages App is absolutely free is absolutely mind-boggling.
Additionally, Apple’s iPages allows one to edit documents and then email them in a Microsoft Word format if one desires.
No wonder your stores are empty and Apple’s are filled to the brim.
I mean – the $99 price take was hefty enough for an iOS app – but on a yearly basis? Are you kidding me?
Apparently, this new App is dominating the App Store with exceptional download activity, but has anyone determined how many people, upon learning that they have to pay an exorbitant yearly fee for this App, have also deleted the App? I would love to see those numbers.
And, truth be told, I am so accustomed to using iPages that I have no compulsion to change teams. Because iPages just works – and it, along with the entire iWork suite, is free with new purchases.
What do you think everyone? Did you fork over $99.00/yearly for Microsoft Word’s iOS App? Do you prefer iPages? Share in the comments.
I am a bit of an easy target when it comes to Picture Collage Apps. At my stage in life, photo preservation, scrapbooking, photo books, framing etc. – you name it – have become a wonderful way to pass the time and to relive and permanently capture the memories of days gone by.
Events do come and go but can be easily evoked through the creative photo imaging process.
But, the saying, “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words”, becomes even more powerful when you combine a number of pictures into one beautiful collage. Or two or three or more!
