    Meet the MacTalkers

    Welcome MacTalkers to our mid weekly edition of 'Meet the MacTalkers'. The first MacTalker that we got an insight into was iMic on Saturday, so today we bring you his 'interview' request, Lawrencium. Similarly to iMic, Lawrencium is a MacTalk 'Writer' who is working behind the scenes to revitalise MacTalk. Well thats enough from me, so sit back and enjoy getting aquatinted with Lawrencium and his green owl.


    What does your username and avatar mean?

    I thought it was kind of great that an element shared its naming origin with myself (Lawrence), so of course I adopted it. It's probably not the best element, either, but it exists (103, Lr).

    I do have a particular fondness for owls, and my favourite colour is green, so what is better than a green owl? Exactly.

    By all accounts the launch of the Apple Watch has been a pretty good success. To back that claim up 9to5Mac have run some numbers posted by Slice Intelligence. According to Slice, Apple posted 957,000 pre-orders in the US alone on Friday. Their data suggests that the Sport Watch made up 62% of the orders. You might be wondering how Slice gets its data, so in that case you will be interested ...

    Meet the MacTalkers

    "Get excited MacTalkers, hot on the heels of the definitive "what we would like to see on MacTalk in 2015 thread" we are bringing back an old MacTalk favourite. Some of you who have been around long enough may remember a fun little thing that MacTalk used to do called 'Meet the MacTalkers. Essentially various MacTalk members are going to introduce themselves to you through various interesting questions, that will give an interesting insight into the forum members you chat with daily.

    One of the points highlighted in the "what we would like to see on MacTalk in 2015" was that the community wanted to know who the hard working MacTalk Moderators are, so the first couple of MacTalkers who you will get to know are our Moderators and Writers who are currently working to reinvigorate MacTalk, then after, we'll get the community to nominate who they want 'interviewed' each week.

    This weeks member will be iMic, one of our writers and member currently working on MacTalk renewal.

    We are now live with the pre-orders for the various models of the Apple Watch.

    After a, for some heart stopping, late return of the online store (still down well past 5.01 p.m.) pre-orders are now up and running. In fact the way to go at 5.01 was the App Store app on your iDevice. So far it seems to be going well with most people seeming to get through and get the watch combination they wanted, and the online store is now back up and running. Waiting times on delivery are varying across the range but they do appear to slipping out pretty fast.

    Despite ...

    With pre-orders opening this Friday for the Apple Watch, the next question is when will the latest piece of tech goodness be delivered to you. Macrumors reports that it seems the German and UK Apple online stores may have revealed the answer to that question, and it seems to be 4-6 weeks for most of the collection if correct. They both have taken the information down now and neither the Australian or US stores have yet indicated any delivery times.

    In the ...

    Apple Store, Louvre by Dale Gillard, on Flickr

    Old time Apple fans, and even some new ones, fondly remember lining up for various iPhone and iPad launches. Apple it seems is less fond of those memories, with Macrumors reporting Retail head Angela Ahrendts telling staff in a memo that ”the days of waiting in line” at an Apple store are over. As result she is encouraging staff to direct customers to the online store to order their chosen Apple Watch.

    They also report in a separate story that watch reservation orders ...

    I trust you all have had a happy Easter, or which ever particular event you observe at this time of year.

    As you might expect over an extended break, there is not a huge amount of news around but there a few things worth bringing to your attention.

    We kick off with a report from BuzzFeed that the next Apple TV is unlikely to support 4K video streaming. It seems that whilst ...

    We start the news today with the observation, I have tried to keep an eye out for any April fool stories out there (it being the 1st April in the US) but I might still have missed one, so sorry in advance if I have and link it!

    It is not the thing that sends most Apple fans running into the streets screaming for joy, but the Apple and IBM partnership continues to build. They have now released 8 new enterprise apps including the first for industrial products and health care.
