Casio announces iPhone-compatible Bluetooth smart watches Casio announces iPhone-compatible Bluetooth smart watches Back in June when we reviewed Casio’s Japan-only G-Shock Bluetooth GB–6900 watch it was only compatible with a handful of Japanese Android phones, preventing it from ever having a chance in the overseas market. Now, Casio is announcing two new Bluetooth G-Shocks, the GB–6900AA (above) and GB-5600AA (below), that work with the iPhone 4S; bringing its smart watch functionality to Apple’s platform for the first time. Just like the original GB–6900, the new watches sync with your phone over Bluetooth 4.0, notifying you of incoming phone calls, new emails, and alarms. A warning function will let you know if you walk away from your phone, and a Find My Phone-like audio alert is available with a single button press.

Why An iPad Mini With Retina Display Would Have Cost $379 [Feature Why An iPad Mini With Retina Display Would Have Cost $379 [Feature This could have cost $379. Image via CNET. Although the iPad mini is well-reviewed, a constant complaint that has been leveled against Apple’s smallest tablet is that the display isn’t Retina. In fact, in my review of the iPad mini, I could barely see past the terrible fuziness of the on-screen text, and considered it an otherwise perfect device’s Achilles’ Heel.
Update (Jul-25-2011): I fixed the “clear launchpad” command to properly remove any empty folders and reset the page count, since some users reported that it was leaving some folders lying around.

Yes, Apple Can Kill Microsoft Office NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shortly after I published Office Will Determine Whether Microsoft Can Beat Apple Monday on TheStreet, the comments and emails rolled in. People think I'm nuts. That I'm "drinking the Apple (AAPL_) Kool-Aid." Yes, Apple Can Kill Microsoft Office
If Steve Jobs Were Alive, He Would Fire Tim Cook If Steve Jobs Were Alive, He Would Fire Tim Cook NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The level of delusion among Apple (AAPL_) bulls reached unprecedented levels Friday morning. Of course, Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized for MappleGate, just days after the company referred to the application as possibly "the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever." (Apple has since changed the language on its Website to read: All in a beautiful vector-based interface that scales and zooms with ease). I have been using Apple's Maps app on my iPhone 5. While it was certainly a mistake to release an unrefined product to replace the solid Google (GOOG_) Maps, it's not that bad.
Daring Fireball Thursday, 27 March 2014 Pando continues its thorough coverage of the Apple/Google-led no-poaching wage-fixing cartel case. You have to laugh at this, from Sergey Brin, after being shown an email from Steve Jobs: Wow, Steve used a smiley. God, I never got one of those.
