The Apple Watch is Here! Or Maybe it Was Here the Whole time?
- -

Apple's press conference today announced the iPhone 6 (spoilers: It has a curved bezel and more powerful technology and a better camera), the iPhone 6 Plus (spoilers: It's the same as what we just said but with the formfactor of a larger Android phone) and the Apple Watch. Details about the watch are relatively slim. We know it will interact with other Apple devices, have apps, use vibration to alert you of notifications and do nifty things like "tug" you in the direction of a pre-planned route you've mapped out.

But really, we know the killer app is just taping your existing phone to your arm.

Poor Photoshopping by the Russian Orthodox Church appears to be at the center of a cover-up gone wrong. A $30,000 Breguet timepiece, pictured on the church's website on the arm of Patriarch Kirill I, later went missing from the photograph; the watch's reflection on the table did not. Russian bloggers spotted the discrepancy and erupted over the church's flaunting its lavish wealth. The Patriarchate, who has denied wearing the watch, vowed to investigate the "technical mistake."
