This week saw news of two different Apple Watches on the market, but one isn't available yet, and one was released and was all bought up before most of you even had a chance. Intrigued? You should be. This week also saw what might be the final parting of Apple and Google Maps, and Cupertino partnering with, of all companies, IBM. And Mac continues to heat up as a gaming platform. That and more below the fold.
Even if you’ve never experienced a full-on, mortifying “Damn you, autocorrect” moment of the kind we’ve all seen shared online to much hilarity, you’ve probably still had your irritations with the system on iOS. Autocorrect might have taken a backseat to predictive text recently, but we still happen to think that autocorrect is largely quite a good thing, and it's useful to know how to manage it effectively.
If you've got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question, we've got the answer. In this week's Ask, we let you know how to turn off autocorrect so it stops putting the wrong words in your mouth. Or at least in your docs and email.
Looks like Apple picked the right time to launch its iTunes Radio based on the streaming-music numbers (and to think how everyone said Cupertino should have done it sooner).

That and more, just step right this way.
