healthbook-emergency

With most rumors pointing towards Healthbook being a headlining feature of iOS 8, I have to ask how many people will actually find the feature useful. Personally, I am waiting to see how the program is implemented to pass judgement on it. I can see certain aspects of it being very nice, while others feel more like a gimmick than what I expect from Apple on a brand new, major operating system.

What about you? Does Healthbook pique your interest?

1320292384_iPad_black_blue_coverAfter (almost exactly) 3 entire years of service, Apple has finally retired the trusty old iPad 2.

It has been reported for months that Apple is working on the so-called “iPhone 6,” which is expected to have a larger screen size and a sapphire crystal display. The company also potentially has a second new iPhone model in the works, although information remains limited at this point.
