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.

Verizon Wireless swaps CEOs, John Stratton now in charge

Big Red has a new chief, with John Stratton replacing Dan Mead as CEO of Verizon Wireless. Stratton comes from within Verizon, having previously served as the company's President of Global Enterprise and Consumer Wireline. Mead will stay with Verizon to oversee the sale of the company's wireline assets, and then plans to retire. Verizon Wireless is still a subsidiary of Verizon Communications, so Stratton will report to the parent company's CEO Lowell McAdam.

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.

Mac adventure game bonanza: Avernum 2, Icewind Dale Enhanced, and more!

This week I'd like to highlight half a dozen recently-released adventure games you can play on your Mac. Whether it's solo play exploring the surface of an alien world or team-based play in a classic dungeon crawl that's more your speed, I've got something that might appeal to you here.

Some of these games are available via Steam and GOG.com too, so if you're comfortable getting apps from places beside the Mac App Store, it can pay to shop around if you'd like to save a few bucks. In fact, one of them — Grim Fandango — is only available from Steam.
