  1. Apple Watch continues to perform extremely well for Apple: Quote During Apple’s Q2 2019 earnings call, both Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri touted the success of Apple Watch during the quarter, revealing that three-quarters of Apple Watch sales are to first-time buyers. With almost all Apple Watch customers being first time buyers, it's obvious that Apple has managed to get the marketing behind Apple Watch done right. Providing useful, practical, and desirable features in a hardware package that looks great. Quote Apple says that the second quarter of 2019 marks the best non-holiday quarter ever for Apple Watch. In total, Apple’s wearables, home, and accessories category set a new March quarter record with $5.1 billion in revenue. That’s up from $3.94 billion in the year-ago quarter. Because Apple Watch is bundled up along with home and accessories it's not that clear how much of the revenue bump is just from Apple Watch, but it is safe to say that AirPods, which is bundled under accessories (don't quote me on that) also played a role. Keep in mind through, that Apple Watch is the best selling watch. Period. Quote Tim Cook said during the call that this makes Apple’s wearables business the size of a Fortune 200 company on its own. Meanwhile, Luca Maestri touted that wearables sales were up 50 percent year-over-year. Apple does not release exact sales figures for Apple Watch, like most of their other products. But if Luca is to be believed, Apple Watch sales significantly increased. Most likely thanks to the release of the Series 4 Apple Watch and the price reduction to the previous Series 3 model. I am the owner of a Series 2 and I love the thing. Even for the second generation of Apple Watch I can get 2 days of battery life. I love the water resistance down to 50m of water, fitness tracking, and proximity authentication features integrated with the Mac. I also appreciate that Apple Watch is also a glorified iPod (w/ optional cellular now) when paired with wireless headphones. Newer models have even more attractive health features like fall detection (extremely important and helpful for the elderly community), the ability to perform an ECG, as well as monitor your heart rate for irregularities. Apple Watch was conceived as a health wearable first, and it has fallen into that roll extremely well in its 4th iteration. What do you think about the Apple Watch? Is it just a gimmick that nobody needs? Or is it a device that has saved lives and has merit?
  2. MicroLED, the technological successor to the popular OLED display technology, is looking to finally come to market after years of R&D at the big players in the technology space. New reports from Digitimes are out claiming that major iPhone manufacturer Foxconn, is working on securing orders of MicroLED panels from Apple. Potentially for an upcoming iPhone. Quote MicroLED offers big potential advantages over OLED screens, such as the Super Retina displays Apple features in the iPhone XS and XS Max. These include higher levels of brightness and more stability. They can also offer the same high contrast, extreme blacks, and fast response time as OLED. Most importantly though, MicroLED is not susceptible to burn in. Making MicroLED effectively a much superior display technology which should replace OLED entirely as it has none of the drawbacks and all the benefits. Apple has, for some time now, been interested in the application of MicroLED: Quote Potential applications have been singled out as everything from Apple Watches to Macs. As far as I’m aware, this is one of the first times the iPhone has been mentioned as a possible recipient. Quote Foxconn currently has three subsidiaries working to build equipment for MicroLED technology. These include Advanced Optoelectronic Technology, Epileds Technologies, and Marketech International. Between them, they are developing the necessary chips and production equipment for MicroLED displays. Personally I thought Apple would try MicroLED out first on the Apple Watch. Given that it’s a particularly small display, however much like traditional LCD displays, MicroLED displays might be cheaper in larger cuts. So that’s why they may decide to go with an iPhone, or potentially an iPad over a smaller device. It will be some time before we see a MicroLED iPhone though, so wouldn’t expect one until at least 2020. Source: https://www.cultofmac.com/622506/future-iphones-could-boast-microled-displays/

  4. vs The fight for survival goes head to head with the hunt for the title as Huddersfield welcome Manchester City to Kirklees Stadium. The home side are bottom of the league and eight points adrift of safety, and earlier this week parted ways with manager David Wagner in an attempt to better a points return of just 0.5 per match. Last season, a heroic draw against City in May was part of Huddersfield's remarkable late escape from relegation. This season’s match against the ‘Citizens’ ended in a 6-1 thumping defeat however, and they enter this match with eight defeats in their last nine matches (D1). At home, ‘Terriers’ fans have had little to cheer for this season with just a single Premier League (PL) win so far (W1, D2, L8), and a measly five home goals in eleven matches. Huddersfield have so far met three of the current ‘Top six’ teams here, all ended in defeats to nil. City, meanwhile, have recovered from their Christmas woes, and have turned two straight defeats into five straight wins in all competitions. Goals have again been flowing, with Pep Guardiola's men scoring 24 goals in the last five matches (in all competitions). In the PL, City have been markedly worse playing away than home this season (W6, D2, L2). Home and away, they’ve won all six of their matches against teams currently in the bottom five, with a combined goal score of 25-4. Players to watch: Mathias Jorgensen, Philip Billing and Christopher Schindler all have five yellow cards or more for Huddersfield this season. Focusing on other things, Sergio Agüero has ten PL goals so far - and scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture. Stat attack: Huddersfield have been losing at half-time in nine of their 15 defeats this season. The three PL H2Hs between these teams average over three yellow cards (3.33). In City’s last five away PL matches, 69% of the goals have come in the first half. LINKS WILL BE UP ONE HOUR BEFORE MATCH STARTS

  6. Former Hearthstone director Ben Brode has revealed what he and a handful of other former Hearthstone developers are getting up to at Second Dinner, the studio they founded last year after departing Blizzard. [Drumroll] It's a Marvel game, and it's backed by a cool $30 million investment from Chinese technology company NetEase, who just happen to also be Blizzard's main partner in that region. "In all likelihood, this will be the best game ever made," CEO Hamilton Chu said. "I made a spreadsheet so I’m pretty sure." What sort of Marvel game it will be? For now, that—and virtually everything else, including platforms—remains a mystery. Some sort of Marvel-based card game is a reasonable bet, as everyone on the founding team—Brode, Chu, Mike Schweitzer, Yong Woo, and Jomaro Kindred—were all senior Hearthstone developers prior to teaming up for Second Dinner. But equally it could be a different genre entirely. The Second Dinner website also suggests that the project will take a very broad, all-encompassing approach to the Marvel cast, saying that it will have Hellcow the vampiric cow (a real character) and Throg, the Mighty Frog of Thunder (also real), and "also Spider-Man and the Avengers and the X-Men." That kind of big, gang's-all-here cast would be ideal for a CCG. There is one way to find out ahead of everyone else, however. Second Dinner is now looking to hire a client engineer and a technical artist, and if you apply and get hired then they'll show you what's going on. There's no time frame given for a full announcement or release, but the NetEase investment "should take us all the way through shipping our first game," the studio said, "with no need to sing and dance for milestone payments or desperately try to find new investors along the way." NetEase is also the company that's partnered with Blizzard on Diablo Immortal, the mobile game that was announced to something less than acclaim at last year's BlizzCon.
