Poll: Should Apple give its other products the rose gold/gold/space gray treatment?

Yesterday Apple updated its 12-inch MacBook with some refreshed internal components and new a rose gold color. We already heard you loud and clear when we asked if Apple should bring new color options with the iPhone 7, but should it also give its other products and accessories the rose gold, gold, space gray treatment?

Apple’s recycling program recovered 89 million pounds of materials – including $40M worth of gold

Apple’s ninth annual Environmental Responsibility Report summarises the company’s work on its three environmental priorities of renewable energy, safer materials & processes and conserving resources. As part of the third of those, the company revealed that its recycling program last year recovered 89 million pounds of materials – Business Insider noting that this included a cool $40M worth of gold.

Gold is commonly used in circuit boards because it has low electrical resistance and, unlike copper, doesn’t corrode. In most applications, a thin layer of gold covers a thicker layer of copper – which was a second valuable material recovered by Apple …

$5000 Console Is Covered In 24k Gold

The very fancy Analogue NT, a replica NES for wealthy adults , is expensive enough at the best of times. Never mind when it literally ships covered in gold.

MesoGlue Is A Metallic Glue That Replaces Hot Solder

SMDlong If you’ve ever soldered or welded, you’ll know that things get pretty hot. MesoGlue intends to fix that. It’s a room-temperature metallic glue that lets you stick parts together with reckless abandon and electrical control. The most interesting part of the entire system is that it allows us to solder parts onto boards without heat which will lead to press-fit electronics… Read More

LG’s Watch Urbane Luxe Is 23-Karat Gold Bonkers

Android Wear watches are cool and all, but none of them are especially fancy. (Even the new Moto 360 , with its flat tire screen.) Until now, at least. An alligator leather wristband, 23-karat gold plating, and a $1000-plus price tag mean the LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a particularly niche geek accessory.

Volcano zone reservoirs could hold huge amounts of gold and silver


The heat is on for prospectors in what could be the next gold rush. According to a recent study in the journal Geothermics, a team of geologists has discovered a mother lode of gold and silver inside super-heated reservoirs within New Zealand’s Taupo Volcanic Zone. Extreme heat from the volcanoes’ magma plumes is heating water, producing acidic underground reservoirs and springs that in turn dissolve the surrounding rock. This then allows the embedded gold and silver to come loose and collect in the water. If successfully drilled, one well could yield as much as $2.7 million in gold a year.

Visualizing a modern Apple Wireless Keyboard [Gallery]

2-1iPadOver the weekend, we learned some preliminary details about Apple’s planned updates for two of their most popular Mac accessories, the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse, in the form of FCC filings. Aside from new and improved connectivity thanks to Bluetooth 4.2, both accessories appear to have design deviations from their existing models, as detailed by the rough sketches accompanying the FCC filings. Based on these sketches, I decided to more fully visualize the changes Apple could be planning for an all new and more modern wireless keyboard based on other modern Apple product designs.

Long Time Coming

Screen Shot 2015-08-17 at 9.51.27 PM

The Apple Wireless Keyboard as we know it today is a dinosaur in terms of technology products. It was first introduced alongside its larger, wired counterpart way back in 2007, not long after the first iPhone debuted, and the iPod, now removed, still reigned supreme in the navigation on Apple.com. In 2009, the wireless model was updated slightly to use one less battery, and a smaller wired keyboard was introduced. In 2011, two function keys received updated graphics to coincide with UI changes in the then new Mac OS X Lion. Aside from those tweaks, everything about the keyboard has remained the same for 8 long years. It’s safe to say that a refreshed design is in order. Let’s take a look at what’s changed since then.

Keyboard Back White DisplayMacs no longer ship with optical disc drives. Yet every wireless keyboard still ships with an eject button in the upper right corner of the keyboard. This is no longer useful on newer Macs as software can control occasional uses with external SuperDrives, and makes absolutely no sense when paired with an iPad, another popular use of the keyboard.

With the Apple Watch, Apple introduced the font San Francisco, an all new, custom typeface that has been making its way across the product lines, most recently as the keycap font for the new MacBook and coming soon Mac and iOS devices with iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. The Apple Wireless Keyboard and MacBook Pro still use the older VAG Rounded font.OldNewFinally, along with the 12″ MacBook came the butterfly mechanism, an improvement to both the stability and space efficiency of individual key caps. This allows each individual key to be 40% thinner and 17% larger than on previous Apple keyboards. Naturally, this change should trickle down to the wireless keyboard.

Keyboard Angle White Display

The FCC filing sketch for the new Apple keyboard appears to show a design that ditches the cylindrical AA battery compartment on the rear of the device, in favor of a flat, low profile design with four rubber feet, and a small power button on the top edge. While the final design could deviate from the drawing, this change would make sense. The flat profile would imply improved typing ergonomics similar to MacBooks, reducing upward bending of the wrist. Ditching the AA battery power source in favor of a rechargeable, internal battery could also play into Apple’s continued efforts towards environmental conservation, reducing the need for disposable batteries, and perhaps finally allowing the abandoned Apple Battery Charger to retire.



Apple’s new found love for the Silver, Space Gray, and Gold trifecta of colors has permeated to almost all of their products, from the new MacBook, to Beats headphones, to the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, all the way down to Apple gift cards. This new, colorful world would only be truly complete with keyboards to match. With an increased number of wireless keyboards being used with iOS devices, it would be fantastic to have matching finishes available across the line. Both white keys like are currently found on Apple’s keyboard and black caps like the ones found on MacBooks would work well, but Apple would likely choose one or the other. iOS devices in both silver and gold typically use white as their accent color.

‘This is Ludacris’: Rapper shows off his diamond-encrusted Apple Watch

Screenshot 2015-08-16 20.45.15

Rapper Ludacris tonight has showed off a unique twist on the Apple Watch: a model encrusted with diamonds around the face’s bezel. Ludacris wore the gear to tonight’s Teen Choice Awards on Fox, and he posted a couple of pictures of the device on Instagram. It appears that taking the custom route allowed Ludacris to one-up his colleagues who were able to secure all-gold Apple Watch Editions with gold Link Bracelets from Apple in the run-up to the Apple Music launch. A close up shot of Ludacris’s Apple Watch is below.

Tim Cook: Apple Watch attracting more developer interest than early iPhones and iPads


In an interview with the Chinese language edition of Bloomberg Businessweek, Tim Cook noted that developers are showing more interest in the Apple Watch than they had in the iPhone and iPad at a similar early stage.

Developers are working on more than 3,500 apps for the gadgets, he said. That’s well ahead of the 500 apps available for the 2008 edition of the iPhone and the 1,000 for the first iPad in 2010, he added.

Cook also confirmed what most had assumed: the gold color introduced for the iPhone, iPad and now MacBook (and presumably real gold for the Watch) was “in part” driven by the popularity of the color in China. Greater China now accounts for a whopping 29% of Apple’s revenue … 

Cook also noted that Apple is supporting a tech education program in Chinese schools. More than 180 schools have trialled a program which covers everything from composing music in GarageBand to teaching hearing-impaired children to use smartphones. Apple hopes to expand the program by 50% by the end of the year.

IDC recently predicted that total wearable sales – covering everything from basic fitness bands up – would hit 72M units this year, noting that smartwatches are closing the gap on entry-level devices.
