Apple Watch Executive Kevin Lynch Discusses New Sleep Tracking and Hand Washing Features

Following WWDC last week, Apple's VP of Technology Kevin Lynch has taken time to discuss the Apple Watch's new sleep tracking and hand washing features in watchOS 7 with publications like The Independent, CNET, and TechCrunch. While some third-party apps provide very detailed sleep analysis, Apple's implementation of sleep tracking is fairly basic, focusing only on duration of sleep, movement disturbances, and heart rate. Lynch told CNET that this simplicity was an intentional decision, notin...

Apple began work on the Watch’s hand washing feature years before COVID-19

Handwashing for the Apple Watch happily slotted alongside face masks for Memojis in the list of COVID-19-related features the company introduced at last week’s WWDC keynote. It’s a pedestrian action, something we take entirely for granted the several times a day we do it. Over the past five months, however, handwashing has taken on a kind of central importance to our daily lives — something to focus on and obsess over. We all read the WHO and CDC guidelines and shared (and perhaps even creat...

The city will survive coronavirus

In a recent essay, New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman asked “Can City Life Survive Coronavirus?” It seems an apt question in this extraordinary time of mandated retreat from public life.  City streets and spaces normally teeming with people are nearly deserted now, evoking scenes from a Terry Gilliam film.  In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 we have shut down the sites where the rituals of daily urban life unfold, “third places” like cafes and bars and community center...

A Look at Street Network Orientation in Major US Cities

Geoff Boeing, a postdoc in the Urban Analytics Lab at the University California, Berkeley, has published a blog post that offers a fascinating look at the street orientation of major cities in the USA and around the world. What is interesting in his findings is how cities from different historical periods form different patterns, and also just how uniformly grid-structured most American cities are. From his post: In 1960, Kevin Lynch published The Image of the City, his treatise on the legibilit...

Apple introduces watchOS 5

Kevin Lynch from the watchOS team introduced the next version of watchOS at Apple’s WWDC keynote. It’s been a slow and steady rise for the Apple Watch. It’s by far the most popular smart watch, and it’s becoming slightly more useful every year. This year is no different. There’s a new workout type for yoga, another one for hiking. You can now challenge your friends for a 7-day competition. But I’m even more excited about automatic workout detection. If you grab your bike and your heart start ...

Of Grand Rapids Griffins-related note this morning: 1. The Grand Rapids Press's Peter J.

How I Became A Leader Without Any Formal Training

I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Apple’s Chief Technology Officer, Kevin Lynch. He is a guy who is clearly more of a techie than he is a public speaker, yet whenever he takes to the stage during the Cupertino company’s huge product launches, Kevin never fails to impress. It took Lynch twenty-four years to reach the position of CTO for the world’s largest company. That’s a colossal amount of time, but what impresses me the most is the way in which he appears to have developed strong lead...

How Much Can You Save on Auto Insurance by Raising Your Deductible?

  It's safe to say that most U.S. drivers are probably interested in reducing their auto insurance bill, and a new study finds that one of the easiest and most substantial ways to do that is by increasing the policy's deductible. The Quadrant Information Services study, commissioned by insuranceQuotes, examined the average economic impact of increasing an auto insurance deductible (i.e. how much you pay out of pocket for a claim before your insurance coverage kicks in). Using a hypothetical ...
