How Apple has to teach people to love the watch

One of the challenges the Apple faces is a generation of people who, in part because of the advent of cellphones, simply don't wear watches.

To get people to start wearing an Apple Watch, the company is going to have to present them with either a compelling feature or, more likely, a set of features that, when combined together, become compelling.

The 'inside story' of Apple's ResearchKit

ResearchKit seemed to come out of nowhere, but it only seemed that way...

Medical research needed a way to reach more people more effectively. Tear-tag flyers on bulletin boards just weren't cutting it. The future was clearly in mobile devices — the personal technology more and more people had with them every day — and in the cloud — the servers that could bring it all together — but how could that future be brought into the present?

Why I'm optimistic about gender equality in tech

"But most women aren't really interested in programming."

When someone says that, I can relate. That's exactly how I felt about girls playing sports when I was 15. Title IX, the landmark 1972 U.S. civil rights law that mandated equal funding for both genders in educational programs — including athletics — was a hot topic during my high school years.

Apple Watch will make you use your iPhone less

Many people who haven't yet had the chance to try an Apple Watch are still wondering whether or not it will have a place in their lives and workflows.

Some don't think it will, at least not any time soon. Those who've been using it for a while, including Apple's CEO Tim Cook, say it's already become invaluable to them — That it saves them from having to pull their iPhone from their pockets or purses, that it helps them live better healthier lives, and that it helps them hook into all the digital things around them.

'Mobile audio has to improve'

While screen display densities and technologies are approaching ludicrous levels, many phones and tablets still provide lackluster audio at best.

It's like trying to enjoy a movie with half your senses tied behind your head. But is home theater quality sound possible on mobile?

The iOS 8 animation curve

Following the introduction of iOS 7 back in June of 2013, a common complaint from developers and designers was that the system animations took to long to complete, making the interface feel slow.

Apple sped up the animations before release, but for some they still felt too slow. Since iOS 8 didn't fundamentally change the animations curves, that perception has lingered.
