Apple iWatch heading for October launch?

Apple iWatch heading for October launch?Unless something frankly unbelievable happens in the next three weeks, there’s a good chance we’ll put the first half of 2014 behind us with no new hardware from Apple. Not a thing. Nada. Zip. Nuthin'.

Of course, the Californians are tipped to have a multitude of goodies up their sleeves, and one of those is the much-discussed Apple iWatch. Here, two separate sources are saying it’ll be launched in October.

Publication the first is re/code, which says – with credit to “People familiar with Apple’s plans” – October is the “tentative launch date” for the iWatch, and while nothing’s set in stone just yet, that’s certainly the “target date” as things stand right now.

Meanwhile, over on Nikkei Asian Review, “industry sources” say the iWatch is “expected to hit the market in October”.

Nothing too shocking there, admittedly. The Apple iWatch will inevitably tie in closely with iOS 8, which was announced last Monday at the WWDC 2014 keynote. It’s currently pencilled in for a “fall” release.

In terms of functionality, the Apple iWatch will likely boast a number of health-related features, Healthkit having been announced last week as one of iOS 8’s key features. Apple is also thought to be working closely with Nike, which has scaled down its own wearable antics.

Now we just need to pin down the iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad Pro, new Apple TV…

Frankly: GOOD!

I need at least another 3 months to get over the idiocy that Apple created with iOS 7.1/7.1.1....
Add the fact that Mavericks f*cked up one private and 2 work Macs, while also killing numerous
favourite 3rd party apps in the process, and Apple really won't see any of my money for a while.

As to these new smart devices?
It's funny: While NOBODY can with any real certainty say what all the EMR
smog is doing to us and/or to other species, the new big EMR driven thing is ta taaaaaa: Health apps.
12 million times the electromagnetic radiation compared to what our grandparents experienced, but a collective, "nah... that can't be relevant" LOL Have a cigarette.

But hey, we evolved with a grey blob in our heads that is constantly frustrated because as smart as it is, it's too dumb to understand itself. Of course it wants to party to blow off steam, right?

PS:
I just crawled 1 mile from the pub in just 93 minutes. Thanks for telling me, Nike. I feel much better.
