Like something out of a classic George A. Romero zombie movie, rumors of Apple's so-called "iWatch" keep lumbering forward in search of human flesh. (Okay, maybe not that last part, but they are in search of deep profit margins.)
Apple recently applied for patent protection for new iOS camera features, according to Patently Apple. The features, which "are to correct or compensate for tilt and/or perspective distortion generally associated with iOS device cameras", could be employed not only in current iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad, but also in future electronic devices that employ cameras, like wristwatches.
Who doesn’t love flashing a shiny piece of impeccably designed gear to the oohs and aahs of your geekiest friends? The sixth-gen iPod nano’s clip makes it easy to attach to your clothing, but since its touchscreen also has a neat analog-looking clock feature, everyone seems to want to strap it to their wrists. Show-offs.
Y'know, when we first laid eyes on the new iPod nano in clock mode, we definitely thought that it resembled a twentieth century pocket watch. Well, apparently it doesn't have to stay in your pocket. The new iLoveHandles "Rock Band" turns your iPod nano into a wrist watch, so you can use your nano to check the time or keep it clipped onto your wrist for easy playlist access. Also, we got some sweet email from a reader who fashioned his own iPod nano wristwatch.
