Is Apple helping or hindering the 'forgotten century' of data?

Vint Cerf is sometimes called one of the "fathers of the Internet" for his role in developing the TCP/IP protocol suite that's in use on every Internet-connected device. So when he warns of a forgotten century of data, it's worth paying attention to. What's more, we've seen some of these dangers already, as Mac users — dangers we must stay vigilant for.

In a recent profile of Ive, the designer sharply criticized an unnamed competitor that allowed customers to "make it whatever you want," saying that that "I believe that's abdicating your responsibility as a designer." Osterloh wasn't about to take that sitting down.

Apple's new West Lake store in China is simply stunning

Apple's new West Lake store in China is simply stunning

Apple's retail stores have always been attractive places, but their newest store in at the West Lake shopping center in Hangzhou, China, is more than attractive: it's gorgeous. Nearly nine years after the opening of the iconic Fifth Avenue cube, the West Lake Store continues Apple's traditions of glass, steel,and light, but in a striking cantilevered design by Foster + Partners architects (the same firm behind the design of the enormous ring-shaped Apple Campus 2). The store is the largest Apple Store in China and opened late last month.

Apple anticipation is wilder than Apple itself

Apple anticipation is wilder than Apple itself

Over the last couple of weeks, rumors of an Apple Car project have gained a lot of attention. Reaction to the rumors has covered the gamut: We have "Apple will absolutely make a car" on one end, "Apple would never make a car" on the other, and lots of jokes in-between. Often these reactions come from people who at one time famously — or infamously — also said "Apple will absolutely make a television" or "Apple will never make a watch". Both miss the most urgent lesson history has been trying to teach us all — with Apple and future product categories, it's best not to speak in absolutes.

Astropad brings the Cintiq experience to your iPad

Astropad brings the Cintiq experience to your iPad

The iPad's made great progress in the sketching world, but it's still been hampered by imprecise screen mapping and styluses that can't perfectly replicate pressure. The solution from Astro HQ's Astropad is to map the iPad to a different screen entirely — that of your Mac.

Astropad does for creative pros what Duet Display did for second-screen enthusiasts: Not only does it provide a high-quality, high-framerate mirrored display on your iPad that you can draw on, but Astropad goes a step further and integrates with three of the iPad's top-selling pressure-sensitive styluses to offer you full pressure support in your Mac app of choice.

It may not be a true Wacom Cintiq experience, but it sure comes close to fooling me.

Don't hate me because I want the gold Apple Watch Edition to cost $10,000

Don't hate me because I want the gold Apple Watch Edition to cost $10,000

One of these days I need to learn to keep my thoughts to myself. I'd get into less trouble and would have way more money in the bank.

Kevin Michaluk is Chief Media Officer of Mobile Nations and an expert in buying expensive consumer electronics. He's been known to spend over $1000 on Porsche Design BlackBerry handsets and upwards of $500 on clock apps. A watch enthusiast for most of his adult life, he's also pledged to buy an Apple Watch Edition as soon as it becomes available, and regardless of the price. This is his story.

Case in point, the prescient editorial I published nearly a year ago on iMore arguing Apple should release an expensive version of the then-rumored "iWatch". After stating my reasons why a high-priced Apple watch would make perfect sense, I finished the article with a flourish, saying "if Apple did release an expensive iWatch I'd be standing in line to buy one the day it goes on sale." Little did I know at the time that I was committing to spending thousands of dollars, sight unseen.
