Who the gold Apple Watch is perfect for

Who the gold Apple Watch is perfect for

"It's not that you don't like the Apple Watch Edition, it's that you don't like the people who like the Apple Watch Edition. Think about that next time you make fun of the Internet."

The above paraphrases just one of the innumerable quotes I love from the West Wing. It beautifully encapsulates the danger of demonization, and I'm using it here because it's now apparently okay to refer to people who might want to buy a gold or rose gold Apple Watch Edition as — and I quote the TechCrunch headline here — "douchebags".

Jawbone and Nike fitness trackers swept out of Apple Stores by Apple Watch

Jawbone and Nike fitness trackers swept out of Apple Stores by Apple Watch

Apple Stores across the nation and online have been cleansed of fitness trackers that aren't called Apple Watch. Both Jawbone's UP24 and the Nike+ FuelBand have vanished from Apple Store shelves.

Admittedly, Apple's never been keen on stocking products that compete with their own, and the impending arrival of the Apple Watch has seen fitness trackers from the likes of Jawbone and Nike dropped from both store shelves and online listings ahead of the arrival of the Apple Watch.

An Apple engineer speaks on the design process that led to the new MacBook

With all the furor about the new MacBook, it's nice see Apple loosening up a bit and letting their engineers speak freely about the super-thin laptop. It might not be the MacBook for you, or maybe you're just waiting for an updated MacBook Pro, or maybe it's exactly what you want. Regardless of where you sit, it's always good to laugh.

Apple Pay still secure, FUD still flowing

Apple Pay still secure, FUD still flowing

There's been a curious stream of articles in major publications recently that go out of their way to misattribute bank fraud to Apple Pay. Curious, and continuing.

The articles all follow the same pattern: They put Apple Pay in the headline and then describe old-fashioned social engineering attacks against banks in the bodies, conflating Apple Pay as much as possible, but pointing out specific flaws with Apple Pay not at all. The articles themselves thus become attacks — they spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt about enabling, accessible technology to people who deserve far better, more accurate, more empowering reporting. And it just won't stop.

How secure is the Apple Watch?

How secure is the Apple Watch?

That was a question posed by MarketWatch today. It's also an important question. Unfortunately, MarketWatch didn't treat the question that way. And that's a profound disservice to its readers.

The Apple Watch is, by Apple's own admission the most personal, most intimate device the company has ever released. It tracks health, it handles communications, it can control our homes, it can pay for our purchases. Security on the Apple Watch is something that's going to matter to everyone who uses it. The response to the sensational headline used by MarketWatch, is that they don't know. And the follow up is pure fear, uncertainty, and doubt. That's not only bad journalism, it's an actively harmful attack.

The new MacBook is for a lot of people, even if it's not for you

The new MacBook is for a lot of people, even if it's not for you

"I think I might put the new MacBook on my Xmas list" — my mom during Apple's Spring forward event.

My mom has used computers before, from the Apple II to the Amiga to the Performa to the iMac. But she's never wanted one before. Since she started using the iPad in 2011, she's barely even looked at one. Now she wants the new MacBook, the same one that has some outlets denouncing it as a "betrayal" or a "bad value". What's causing the difference in reactions?

Forget Force Touch trackpads — I want a pressure-sensitive iPad Pro

Forget Force Touch trackpads — I want a pressure-sensitive iPad Pro

The new MacBook's trackpad is incredible. Now, imagine that technology in an iPad.

I got to spend just twenty minutes with the new MacBook trackpad on Monday, but it was enough to leave me feeling wowed, impressed, and a little bit disoriented.

Apple's long-in-the-making Force Touch trackpad uses haptic feedback to make your finger feel like it's depressing a button, even though the trackpad itself doesn't move. It's a sheet of glass. It doesn't have a button, it doesn't all depress at once — it does not move at all. But it feels like you're clicking. It feels like your finger is sinking into that immoveable glass and accessing deeper click levels than have ever existed on a trackpad.

Now, think about what Apple could do with that technology on a computer made entirely of glass.
