  • iOS On Your Dashboard With Apple CarPlay

    This morning at the Geneva International Motor Show, Apple announced its rebranded its iOS in the Car as CarPlay. Along with the new name, Apple revealed that the first cars to feature CarPlay will debut at the show from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo. So what exactly will CarPlay allow you to do? With the help of Apple’s voice-activated Siri, drivers will be able to keep their eyes on the road while making calls, sending messages, selecting music, and getting navigation help. Don’t worry if you’re not an iTunes user. Apple will allow connectivity to third-party music apps like Spotify and iHeartRadio for your cruising soundtrack. The system will also be predictive, using information from your texts, emails, and searches to figure out where you plan on going without telling it anything. In addition to the aforementioned automakers, Nissan, Peugeot, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, and General Motors will all feature CarPlay in future vehicles. Even Ford, who has been using Microsoft’s Sync voice-command system for years, is said to be a future partner. Soon the CarPlay steering wheel button may be as ubiquitous as seat warmers in autos. Wait, you don’t have seat warmers? Yikes.

  • Celebrate The iPhone’s 7th Birthday With These Early Concept Designs

    The iPhone was unveiled January 7, 2007, but for years before that, the Internet was abuzz with rumors and early design concepts. Some even doubted if Apple would ever actually release a phone. The New York Times’ very own technology columnist David Pope wrote in 2006 that Apple would come out with a cellphone “Probably never.” Looks like he was wrong, as were the folks who came up with these designs. They serve as a harsh reminder of the slide phone obsession of the early 2000s. What were we thinking?

  • Apple Calls Upon Bryan Cranston to be the New Voice of the iPad Air

    It’s been about four weeks since the last episode of Breaking Bad aired and the dust is starting to settle. You’re watching one of your many mundane programs that’s attempting to compensate for the show that hooked you in so bad, you’re withdrawals are nearly as bad as if you’d actually induced the blue stuff. A commercial comes on. You’re not paying attention. Until a recognizable voice begins talking to you overlaid with a background piano. The voice is soothing and familiar. It’s authoritative yet compassionate. It beckons you to listen. You do, because you miss it. It tell’s you some mumbo jumbo about how the iPad is so revolutionary its comparable to the pencil. You go out and buy an iPad Air and don’t ask questions. We miss you Walter. We miss you so much.  

  • A Look At Apple’s New $5 Billion Spaceship Inspired Headquarters [10 Photos]

    What do you do when you are ranked as the wealthiest company in the nation? How about spend $5 billion on a new headquarters. Apple is spending some of its $144 billion on a 175-acre site formerly occupied by HP to build a new HQ that looks like a polished glass spaceship. The new compound will hold 14,000 employees, five times the capacity of their current HQ. The plan is up for a final vote today by the Cupertino City Council. Let’s hope it passes just to see how spectacularly hip this place will be. Until then, we’ll have to be satisfied with this model.
