Leaked Companion App Spills Details On The Apple Watch

The Apple Watch was already one of the most anticipated gadgets of 2015 before the year even started. And though current rumours indicate we still have two months worth of waiting, a new leak of the watch’s companion app, posted by the ever-reliable Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac, give us even more details on what this watch will be able to do.


Apple Pay May Launch Internationally By March

Since November, the rest of the world has been forced look on with mild annoyance and jealousy as Americans have paid for stuff with fingerprints (and a $US600 phone). But according to a report from 9to5Mac, the days of having to key in a PIN — ugh — are numbered.


Idiot Thieves Stole PINs With An iPod Nano Covered In Duct Tape

Despite the repeated cries of tech bloggers everywhere, it would seem that the iPod isn’t actually dead; it’s just gone rogue. The newest ATM skimming scheme relies almost entirely on a MacGyver-ed version of your former, clickwheeled friend. How could you, iPod?


That Rumoured 12-Inch MacBook Air Could Be A Stunner

Ah, the wonders of photorealistic 3D modelling software. Although it’s only been two days since 9to5Mac leaked that Apple is planning the biggest overhaul to its laptops in years — in the form of a new 12-inch MacBook Air — we’ve already got gauzy, hyper-real renderings of this sucker. If this is what Apple is planning, count us in.


You Can Download North Korea's OS X Knockoff For Desktops (But Don't)

An anonymous Dogecoin lover recently uploaded a torrent that appears to contain the delightful Mac OS X knockoff built by North Korea. While it’s not news that the DPRK created its own a Linux-based operating system that looks just like OS X, it’s pretty funny that you can now play with what looks like a copy of it.


Why Apple Could Leave Ports Behind

While rumours of a 12-inch MacBook Air have been merrily percolating these last few months, the most interesting aspect of Apple’s upcoming redesign turns out not to be the size after all. It’s the apparent abandonment of ports.


Report: Apple Radically Redesigning The MacBook Air

Everyone’s been waiting years and years for a meaningful update to the MacBook line. According to a report from 9to5 Mac, this will be the year that a new design will arrive. The blog just published a few renderings based on details from unnamed Apple employees. And if they’re correct, this new MacBook looks awesome.


4K Drone Footage Captures Apple's New Spaceship HQ, And It's Massive

After looking at rendered images for years, seeing real footage of Apple’s new spaceship of a headquarters is a little bit surreal. We got a peek at the building’s footprint last year, but a new clip shot with a drone in 4K really shows the building taking shape. Boy, is it huge.


Apple, Please Make This iPod Classic Cover A Reality

Apple unceremoniously killed off the iPod Classic a few months ago, and the internet, as it is wont to do, basically exploded with consumerist anger. Although the iPod Classic probably won’t be coming back any time soon, this concept, if it were to become real, would make it all ok.


Apple Offers 14 Day iTunes App Refunds (But Not In Australia)

Apple’s quietly adjusted the Terms and Conditions for iTunes sales, allowing for a fourteen day refund window… but only in Europe. Don’t hold your breath for the same kind of deal down under.
