A couple of weeks ago, we featured a story on a new watch, the QlockTwo, which spells you the time instead of showing the typical hands or digital layout. We loved the futuristic but classy display, and the fact that it took a new approach at time-telling which could always become a conversation starter.
If you can’t afford the almost $300 price-tag, then there is an alternative for iPad and iPhone users, in the form of a new application which mimics the watch’s abilities perfectly.
It costs a pretty reasonable $0.99, or 69p for us in the UK, and for that price it’s certainly worth giving a go, to see if you can get a grip of the way it works before you consider emptying your life savings on the fancy QlockTwo watch or clock.
The perfection and minimal design that Steve Jobs loved is truly shown in his notes, used to prepare him for the 2007 Keynote, which saw him reveal to the world for the first time, the Apple iPhone.
The image surfaced on Reddit linking to a Flickr account. It shows a beautifully minimal agenda decorated with different iOS icons to guide him through the iconic event.
Apple’s Tim Cook has openly admitted that he, and Apple has no plans to produce a touchscreen computer, but that doesn’t mean people can’t dream.
This iMac concept almost perfectly blends the line between iPad and Mac. The monitor, which can be folded down to use for drawings, features a slide-to-unlock log in screen, and uses a slightly edited version of the current OSX’s Launchpad user interface.
The long-awaited Siri for OSX is also a feature which would be very welcome if it were to be real.
All in all it’s a very good concept, even if it is a long shot.
