    If you werenít happy to hear you couldnít pop into your local Apple Store tomorrow and grab a shiny new Apple Watch, you will likely be less impressed with the 9to5Mac report that in fact you will be able to buy them from select boutique fashion locations. Sadly none of them appear to be in Australia.

    However on the good news front various reports are suggesting ...

    As someone that normally holds out from new Apple product launches, even Iíll admit that Appleís recent introduction of the Apple Watch left me somewhat intrigued. I hadnít even considered wearing a watch until recently, having become accustomed to the idea of occasionally checking my phone for the time or new notifications, something that throws back to when I first started using the iPhone.

    Watching Tim Cook introduce the watch in September 2014 raised even more questions in my mind. What does this device do that my phone doesnít already? I remember watching the iPhone introduction in 2007 and knowing immediately how it would improve my life and workflow. I watched the iPad introduction in 2010 and knew several instances in which it would be useful. This time, I wasnít so sure.

    It became apparent early on that I was clearly not in the intended audience for this one. Iíd never needed my technology to be this personal, never considered checking my phone to be an inconvenience and never considered having a digital device to monitor my health. Iíve finished off a block of dark chocolate while writing this article alone, so frankly Iím not sure I actually want to know what my heart rate or health stats are.

    Still, curiosity prevailed. I decided that who better to review an Apple Watch than someone that has absolutely no reason to own one?

    That, and someone here had to do it.

    Somewhat hazy after a sleepless night, charged on considerable ...

    If you are thinking all the various Apple Watch bands are just not meeting your needs, then we have good news for you.

    Reports are starting to surface that some Apple Watch pre-order customers are seeing their credit cards charged and shipping status updating to preparing for shipment. If you pre-ordered be sure to let everyone know if you have been charged over in our Apple Watch thread.

    One feature of the Apple Watch that many are interested in is the heart rate monitor. Apple has now put up a new support page that goes into greater detail about the feature ...

    Apple continues its push the Apple Watch with non other than Jony Ive showing the watch off at Milanís Design week. As 9to5Mac noted what made it all the more interesting was that Jony appeared to have an exclusive collection of Sports band colours. Earlier the showcase had been launched by Phil Schiller and designer Marc Newson.

    If you have had a play with the Apple Watch ...

    If you were planning on heading to your local Apple store on 24 April to try and score yourself an Apple Watch, sadly you wonít be doing that. Macrumors report that Apple has removed the reference to the 24th from its website and in a memo to staff Retail head Angela Ahrendts has told staff that due to the high demand ...

    We still donít have any official word on how the launch on the Apple Watch has gone but people are stepping up to have a guess. The latest is KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who 9to5Mac report has estimated that pre-orders will be in excess of 2.3 million through May. He sees production running around 2.5 million a month and in part back solves the current production rate based on the delivery ...

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.

    Occupation?

    Full-time secondary student (final year). Not quite university, but soon enough.

    Location?

    The fantastical Adelaide.

    What's your poison?

    I take it that this ...

    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 ...

    3 more employees resigned over the past 2 weeks... and by chance, all 3 are going to the same new employer! (in an unrelated industry, but similar roles).
