A month to go to WWDC 2015 and Dermot Daly the CEO of Tapadoo will be packing his bags again for the iOS developer pilgrimage of the year, but what are we likely to see revealed this year?
CUPERTINO, California—September 9, 1984—Apple Computer Inc.® today unveiled Apple // watch™—its most personal device ever. Apple // watch introduces a revolutionary design and A BASIC USER INTERFACE created specifically for a smaller device. Apple // watch features A KNOB, an innovative way to SCROLL, without obstructing the display. The KNOB also serves as the RETURN button and a convenient way to PRESS RETURN.

In a video shortcut from Episode 15 of the Redcert Podcast, I asked Dermot Daly the founder & CEO of leading app development company Tapadoo about WatchKit and his initial thoughts on working on apps for Apple's first wearable device.
Is this how the news will look tomorrow? It’s (h)iTime.
So summer is officially over and it's a new season of the Redcert Podcast: did you unplug for the summer? Dermot Daly and Andy O'Donoghue discuss getting your 'Digital Detox' on the Brecon Beacons with UK company Unplugged Weekend, Apple's iTime patent, Wearable Experiments's Alert Shirt for Aussie Rules fans, parachute journalism in technology, the Skully AR helmet and that's for starters.
Andy O'Donoghue joined Bobby Kerr on Newstalk's Down To Business to discuss the patent recently granted to Apple for a device they termed iTime. Andy though thinks Apple have done a good job convincing the market that they're building a Smart Watch with lovely interchangeable (lulti-coloured!) straps, whereas, could iTime in fact be an interface for your entire life?
iTime will likely be the gong that silences the the nay-sayers who mumbled 'there's no innovation at Apple anymore' - despite new frameworks like HealthKit and HomeKit that could kick-start entire industries, new iPhones this September and incidentals like a whole new programming language Swift, the market wanted Apple to spring something so huge it could change the world. In yesterday's quarterly results we noticed a 36% increase in Apple's R&D spending. At a company where much work is done and cost already accounted for in a type of modular innovation process before a new product is created a surge in R&D is a good clue that there is plenty going on.
