What are HomeKit vendors waiting for?

One of the things I was most interested in for CES 2015 was seeing how far home automation vendors had come in integrating Apple's HomeKit frameworks. HomeKit is supposed to take us from tediously tapping our way through dozens of disparate apps to elegantly controlling everything in our house with Siri. For all the announcements, however, there were no shipping products. So, what's taking so long?

NSFW: 'Dad, I want a PC...'

My 14 year old son is defecting for the Dark Side. About two weeks ago he told me that he wants a Windows PC for his birthday. As a near-lifetime Mac user, I have to say that I was disappointed. Sad even. But I knew this day was coming.

Regarding ARM-based Macs...again

An analyst report making the rounds today suggests that Apple will get ARM-based Macs into production sometime next year. Forgive me if I yawn a bit, but this is nothing new. Last year, Rene wrote an editorial about a previous ARM Mac rumor too. According the new rumor, propagated by KGI Research, Apple will get into production a Mac using a future version of the same ARM CPU hardware it already manufactures for the iPhone and iPad. The report suggests that Apple would build a low-end machine based on this hardware, leaving Intel to provide faster chips for the rest of the Mac line, at least for now.

NSFW: The enduring impact of the iPhone, eight years later

Time flies. This past week (Friday, more specifically) marked the eighth anniversary of the iPhone, which Steve Jobs unveiled during a Macworld Expo keynote in San Francisco. It's hard to imagine a time before the iPhone and iOS, but it really wasn't that long ago.

8 years ago today, Steve Jobs introduced Apple's iPhone

8 years ago today Steve Jobs put sneaker to Macworld stage in what was arguably the greatest keynote in his and Apple's history of great keynotes. Following the industry-changing Mac and the iPod, Jobs claimed Apple was going to introduce 3 more revolutionary products — a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and revolutionary phone, and a breakthrough internet communicator. He asked if we got it. We did. We got the hell out of it. Not 3 products but 1. The iPhone.

iMore presents CESongs

Seeing amazing products is cool and all, but the best part of CES is getting to hang out with Rene, Georgia, and Anthony on a daily basis. We've been making silly videos for the cool booths we've seen on the show floor, but Tuesday night we took it a step further, recapping our activities with a ukulele song.

NSFW: CES is dead? Not so fast

Despite a flurry of product announcements since the weekend, it's worth noting that the Consumer Electronics Show — CES 2015 — officially opens its doors today and runs through the rest of the week. So far I've read a lot of "CES is dead" style articles over the past few days, some from journalists who aren't going, some from those who are there and are just miserable about it.

I don't put much stock in any of that naysaying, and I don't think you should, either. Having said that, I think some perspective on CES is important.

How I pack for a tech conference

If you follow tech news at all, you might be aware of a teensy little event coming up in Las Vegas, requiring the talents of most of the iMore and Mobile Nations staff.
