Study Shows How Layovers and Airline Mergers are Connecting the World

We live in a hyperconnected world: It’s easier than ever to hop on a plane and get to the other side of the globe in a matter of hours. If we were to try and visually depict this connectivity, our planet would quickly become ensnared in a giant spiderweb of airways.

Check Out a Miniature Machine Catalog From 1961

Back before computers were ubiquitous, salespeople had a hard time showing their customers what stuff looked like, especially big stuff. Sure, there were photographs and drawings, but for a full three-dimensional effect, you needed a physical model. That’s where Topping, Inc. came in.

Apple Watch straps will be available to purchase separately at launch

Apple-Watch-Strap-01

Despite speculation to the contrary, Apple does in fact plan to sell an array of bands as separate accessories for the Apple Watch at launch, according to sources. Claims have recently circulated that Apple might solely sell the Watch in pre-assembled collections, reducing their potential for customization, but our sources say that Apple’s retail outlets will be stocked on day one with individual straps so customers can easily mix and match the looks of their Watches.

While Apple has hinted at millions of combinations of Apple Watch when considering the various watch faces and interchangeable strap combos, up until now we’ve not had confirmation that straps would be available to purchase separately alongside the Apple Watch at launch.

What we know about the Apple Watch lineup so far from Apple is that it will come in three models— Apple Watch, Sport, and Edition— with each of those models offering a selection of the 6 straps Apple created on the 38mm size, 42mm size, or both. Some of the straps Apple shows on its website, such as the Modern Buckle and Leather Loop— will be limited to either the 38mm or 42mm models in select colors for the Apple Watch and gold Apple Watch Edition. It’s unclear Apple’s exact motivation in limiting certain watch straps to either the 38mm and 42mm options in the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition lineups. The Apple Watch Sport line offers all strap options and colors for both sizes, according to Apple’s site. However, it’s possible that some of the straps Apple shows as limited to either the 38mm or 42mm sizes will become available to purchase for the other size separately. 

Some straps and bracelets might make more sense to offer as standalone accessories. Not offering straps for the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition could be something Apple does strategically to increase the exclusivity of those models that many expect to sell as high-end fashion items with matching price tags.

There’s no confirmation on what straps Apple will make available to purchase separately at launch or if the options will reflect all variations of the device currently shown on Apple’s website. It’s of course also possible, and quite likely, that Apple will offer straps beyond the designs it’s outed so far.

Video of claimed actual iPhone 6 back emerges alongside storage size rumors

Mac Otakara has posted a video it says is of the actual back of the 4.7-inch model of the iPhone 6, contrasting it with much simpler mockups.

While there’s no way to assess whether the part is genuine, it certainly looks convincing. The many mockups floating around are essentially featureless inside, but this appears to have the detail of the real thing. If it’s a hoax, it’s an extremely elaborate one … 

Here’s a cleaned-up close-up of the inside:

We’ve previously seen claimed photos of both the front and back of the iPhone 6, but this is the first time we’ve seen video.

Chinese site Feng.com is also claiming that the 4.7-inch model will come in only two options, 32GB and 64GB, while the 5.5-inch model will add the option of 128GB. The site echoes an easier report from Deutsche Telekom that Apple is finally dropping the 16GB entry-level option on the new phones.

While dropping the 16GB tier would certainly make sense, and is something I’ve previously suggested Apple might do, we’re viewing the rumor with some caution for now.

There does, though, seem to be growing evidence that the smaller and larger iPhone 6 models will differ in more than just physical size, an earlier KGI report suggesting that the 5.5-inch model will get optical image stabilization while the 4.7-inch model may not.

New, cheaper, iPod touch model rumored to launch next week

ipod-touch-deal

Multiple sources are indicating that Apple will launch a new variant of the iPod touch next week. iGen.fr is saying that the same source who leaked information about the early 2013 16 GB 5th generation iPod touch is now saying yet another model will launch in the near future. However, their report does not go into specifics about particular changes.

MacRumors believes that the new device will be a modified version of the current 16 GB iPod touch at a lower price point. According to the site, the low-end Touch will reclaim a back-facing camera and go on sale for $199. Compared to the current 16 GB Touch, this supposed new model would both be $30 cheaper and feature two cameras.

Low-end models of existing products has been the trend for Apple in the first half of this year. In March, they launched an 8 GB model of the iPhone 5c in a smattering of countries, to stimulate sales in more price-sensitive markets. Just a couple of weeks ago, the company also began selling a low-spec iMac,  lowering the entry price of that product range by $200, as well.
