Is the Apple Watch irritating your skin? Apple says you’re wearing it wrong


There’s a good chance that Apple will never live down its late co-founder and CEO’s curt email response to a customer complaining of reception issues with the iPhone 4. “You’re holding it wrong,” Jobs wrote, suggesting that the phone was working fine and any reception issues were the user’s fault.

Then, Antennagate happened.

Apple would never issue an official response like that to a potential problem, but one explanation of the skin irritation that some users are experiencing with the new Apple Watch actually might fall along the same lines.

This accessory might fix the worst thing about the Apple Watch


The worst thing about the Apple Watch is, in my opinion, its battery life. Even though the device will comfortably last for more than a day, you’ll still have to carry a second charger with you for the Watch, and constantly take it off to recharge it.

OPINION: Should Brendan Rodgers Be Sacked?

View From the Press Box

Northern Irish manager Brendan Rodger joined Liverpool from Swansea in June 2012. He had done well with Swansea and so a lot was expected from him, maybe too much.

Rodgers has become the first Liverpool manager not to win a trophy in their first three years at the club. Not only that, the club is performing well below par.

Last season Liverpool fans were delighted as now Barcelona man Luis Suarez lit up the premier League. They were at the top of the table for a long period, but slipped up, (literally) and handed the title to Manchester City.

Rodgers was praised last season for being one of the best managers in the Premier League, but soon after Suarez left, things changed; drastically.
