Sure, flip phones haven't been popular since the days of Motorola's RAZR and similar handsets, but that doesn't mean they can't make a comeback. Martin Hajek gives us a look at what an Apple Watch meets iPhone version would look like, complete with a mini secondary display used for notifications. "In Japan these huge flip-phones are called 'garakei' and they are still very popular, despite the iPhone also gaining marketshare in the land of the rising sun. What if Apple ever decided to make an iPhone especially for the Japanese market? Introducing the...garakeiPhone! It comes complete with the obligatory lanyard detail and of course it comes in gold, space grey and rose gold," said Hajeck.

Siri, both in its original version and as an iOS feature, adapts to the user's individual language usage and individual searches (preferences) with continuing use, and returns results that are individualized. The name Siri is Scandinavian, a short form of the Norse name Sigrid meaning "beauty" and "victory", and comes from the intended name for the original developer's first child. It's a great feature for getting information, but sometimes the responses you get are unexpected to say the least, including when asking it to divide by 0. Continue reading for more.
There's the Star Trek Phaser Remote, and then this iPhaser, designed by Martin Hajek. Apparently, Apple's Jony Ive gave JJ Abrams design tips on how some of the Star Wars props should look, and we all know how big of a Trekkie the director is also, so it would only make sense to show what a modern phaser would look like. Hajek says that it "comes with [a] changeable leather strap, touch-screen control to fine-tune your stun-settings and more." Unfortunately (or fortunately), it may be a while, if ever, until we see this being sold in stores. Continue reading for more pictures.

Andreessen Horowitz analyst Benedict Evans states that the $10,000-$17,000 Apple Watch exists because it's a form of marketing for Apple. It creates an air of luxury around the rest of the Apple Watch line, setting it apart from the others on the market. He says: "Apple retail is a self-funding marketing operation. So too, perhaps, is the gold watch. Apple might only sell a few tens of thousands, but what impression does it create around the $1,000 watch, or the $350 watch? After all, the luxury goods market is full of companies whose most visible products are extremely expensive, but whose revenue really comes from makeup, perfume and accessories."
