First Impressions: 5K iMac (Spoiler: Wow!)

I got my 5K iMac early this morning, and immediately migrated my data from my Mac Pro. My first impressions of this Mac are simply this: Wow! I haven’t done much yet; nothing that taxes the processors to be able to see how fast it is. I did get the faster processor and better video […]

How Will Apple Implement Touch ID on Macs?

Last year, after I had had my iPhone 5s for a while, I wrote about how I want Touch ID everywhere. I have a new iPad Air 2, which has Touch ID, so the two mobile devices I use most let me unlock them with my fingerprints. It’s not as big a deal on the […]

Apple’s Weird Math, or the Weight of the iPad

I was looking at the specs for the new iPad Air 2, comparing its weight with last year’s original iPad Air. I’m unimpressed by the difference in thickness between the devices, but wanted to see how much difference the thinner iPad meant in terms of weight.

“It’s unclear exactly why Apple will no longer sell the devices, which track steps and other health metrics, in its retail stores. But the move comes a week after Fitbit issued a statement saying it was still “evaluating integration with HealthKit,” Apple’s new software application that acts as a central repository for health and fitness data on iPhones.”

This is a bit mean-sprited on the part of Apple, but it’s important to remember that, if Apple does stop selling Fitbit’s products, there may be more to the story that we don’t know. I don’t know how well Fitbit’s products perform in Apple’s stores, but I’ve found the Fitbit One to be the most accurate of the four fitness trackers I tried.
