Apple watch, Apple Pay and iPhone 6 devices officially announced

Apple has unveiled its latest gadgets, which include new smartphones and a smartwatch.

The innovative electronics giant finally put rumors of it possibly announcing its very first smartwatch to rest on Tuesday, September 9 when it officially revealed its Apple Watch to an eager audience that filled the Flint Center in California and to millions of digital viewers around the world.

The new watch from Apple will be available in three styles.

There will be the standard Apple Watch, the 18k gold Watch Edition and the Watch Sport, which has been designed to be extra durable and light. The device will also have two different face sizes (1.5 inches and 1.65 inches). The two different sizes make Apple’s smartwatch unique from what is currently available on the market, as it allows consumers to choose a watch face that will be better suited to their wrist size.

In addition, consumers can choose from a variety of watch straps that differ in color and texture, which helps to make the watch even more customizable. However, beyond its aesthetic aspects and appeal, the wearable device features what the company calls a “digital crown”. This is a small dial on the side of the watch through which much of the interaction with the smartwatch occurs.

The digital crown enables the user to control certain functions on the screen so that they are not blocking their view of the display as they interact with the watch. For instance, users can use this feature to zoom in and out of a map.

Among other features, the watch also has fitness and health tracking capabilities.Apple Watch announced

In addition to the Apple Watch, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were unveiled.

The two new iPhones are larger (iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch screen and iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5 inch screen) and faster than Apple’s previous models and will have longer battery life. The camera has been improved, and users will be able to enjoy a horizontal view of the home screen. The iPhone 6 Plus screen resolution will be the sharpest of any iPhone previously released with 401 pixels per inch instead of 326.

Other features of the phones include the barometer, a new sensor that approximates not only how far a user has run or walked, but also how many stairs they’ve climbed. In addition, both phones will be equipped with Apple Pay, the company’s new mobile payments system.

The new iPhones are set to begin shipping in the U.S. on September 19. The starting price for the iPhone 6 is $199 (for 16 GB with a two year contract). Prices go up from there with the iPhone 6 Plus costing $100 extra on top of the iPhone 6 prices.

The Apple Watch is compatible with the new iPhones, as well as the iPhone 5, 5s and 5c. The starting price for the watch is $349.00 and will be made available for purchase in early 2015.

Technology Today ; Apple giving us another reason to Give the Finger

Ajay Gupta interviews Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID (OTCQB: NXTD)

Intro –

Apple’s new OS, iOS 7, and two new phones, the iPhone 5c and 5s, have received a lot of attention. And they’ve sold 9 million phones in the first weekend of sales.

One feature that hasn’t received as much discussion as may be deserved is the fingerprint biometric feature.  That’s the kind of tech we like to discuss at Technology Today and we’ll do that this Wednesday at 6pm EST.

Security is an ever growing concern and the 4-digit pass code is often more of an annoyance than a deterrent. Perhaps a finger tap approach, which we are used to anyway from opening apps, will do better? 

Some say this is a slippery slope that once we are accustomed to using our fingers, retina scanners, voice print and other more intrusive biometric approaches will become the norm.

The show  discuses the pros and cons and takes a deeper look at the biometric teck.  Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, is a recognized expert in the technology space having built start-ups across the world.  His current business, NXT-ID, is active in biometrics with special application in mobile payment security.
