iWatch сoncept by Belm Designs





A new concept of iWatch was presented by Mark Bell of Belm Designs for a contest featuring future products from some of today’s tech-giants.

We toyed with different shapes and even based a few on current offerings on the market today. We found that when it comes to a watch or in this case a “Smart Watch”, a traditional circular shape was most favorable. Most people are quite comfortable with the shape and it still exudes class and style.

Apple will use iOS 8 for iWatch and implement some sensors to monitor fitness and health signs  for  'Healthbook' app. An expert on sleep research and a 'User Studies Exercise Physiologist' have been hired to work on the project.

According to Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, Apple may gain $17.5 billion from iWatch sales over the first year.

You can enjoy the concept below.

iPhone 5s and rumored iPhone 6 concept comparison



A concept presented by Ciccarese Design compares the 4-inch iPhone 5s and the rumored 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6.

If the rumors about  a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 right, we should wonder what their screen resolution will be.  KDB Daewoo Securities believes it will be of 1920x1080 and 2272x1280. Display Search, on the other hand, predicts the screen resolutions of 1600x900 and 1920x1080.

You can enjoy the concept comparison below.

San Francisco Apple Store boasts sliding glass doors



According to SocketSite, the new Apple Store in San Francisco will boast two gigantic glass sliding doors. They will be over 44 feet tall and 23 feet wide.

Another set of renderings of the redesigned Post Street façade for Apple's proposed flagship store on Union Square which now features two full-height sliding glass doors, each measuring 23 feet wide and 44.5 feet tall, allowing the store to be opened to the street: Note the regular sized all-glass doors in the non-sliding bays which would act as the primary access points for the store when the full-height doors are closed.

The proposed retail store has already been redesigned for several times. At first, Apple was planning to destroy a historic fountain. However, due to growing complaints the designers developed a project of the fountain relocation. Another addition is an 8-foot wide glass window located on the side wall.

You can find the render below.

Creative Hitz MA2600 review



After purchasing a music player, smartphone or tablet many users think of buying new headphones to replace original ones. Indeed some people just want a better sound quality and user experience, others search for a replacement of already broken ones. We have been able to take a look at Hitz MA2600 headphones from Creative.

First impression always starts from the process of unpackaging the box. Hitz MA2600 looks great, at first sight one can tell that these headphones are very well made. The design is bright and modern. These on ear type headphones have professionally-tuned 40mm neodymium drivers that must deliver excellent sound. There is also a microphone, so Hitz MA2600 can be used to make calls as well. Two options for color - black and white. Official web page positions Hitz MA2600 as a premium headset for music and calls. We are sure it is also good for movies and games.
