While Apple has made it clear that its first foray into fashion accessories will follow a "seasonal" cycle, with certain styles leaving its store forever once sold out, the array of bands unavailable on the store paints an erratic picture of shortages from all three of the Apple Watch's seasonal collections: Spring 2015, Fall 2015, and Spring 2016.
The app can now intelligently categorize users' notes by topic, such as food, books, and travel, and entries can be searched by keyword using topic shortcuts which appear in the search bar.
Fusion lacks Parallels' speed, some of its fancy trappings, and its appeal to less technical users, but it surpasses Parallels in its overall solidity.
"There is potential for Apple's search ads to perform better than those advertisers can place across the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. because the intent to search for, buy and download within the app store is much higher in this kind of environment," said Valerie Davis, svp of paid digital media at PMX Agency.

Meanwhile, tech giants such as Google and Facebook have made a free lunch an expectation for many workers. Lunch is no longer for wimps – it’s good business andgood for business.
Finke insists he isn’t passing judgement, but he doesn’t have to. The images do so on their own.
On a hot day, why drink water, when you can let ice cold water melt in your mouth?
I have imposed a rule for myself: I should see the sky during my lunch hour. And it doesn't matter if it is sunny or raining outside. I think this helps in making me just a little happier.
