Where the Apple Watch could go from here

Macworld - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 06:00

Apple seems to have finally figured out exactly what the Apple Watch is for, and built just the right hardware to do it. Apple Watch isn't a little smartphone-lite on your wrist, but is now more narrowly focused on being a heath and fitness accessory that provides lots of quick, glanceable information.

The Series 4 hardware is the first true “generational” update since the original Apple Watch, and it’s a great expression of that new focus. The much faster processor makes interactions instantaneous, smooth, and precise. The upgraded sensors have the kind of fidelity and range to enable all kinds of new health and fitness tracking. The larger, higher-res display can show more complications and makes text and icons easier to read. And the upgraded mic and speakers make voice interaction truly useful.

In a letter to Weinstein's attorney dated Tuesday, prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon acknowledged that the lead detective had made the recommendation to one of two women accusing Weinstein in the case, in which he faces charges of rape and a forced oral sex act. "This new development even further undermines the integrity of an already deeply flawed indictment of Mr Weinstein," his lawyer Ben Brafman was quoted by a spokeswoman as saying.
