Emerging Technology (Apple Watch):
The latest and greatest technology in the Apple industry is the all new Apple Watch. This
watch is Apples most personal device ever and claims to be the pioneer (gateway) for user
interface that lets you scroll, zoom, and navigate. With this watch and the addition of the Big
Crown; you can practically communicate from your wrist to send and receive messages, answer
calls to your iPhone, and even keep up with your heartbeat. This technology joins the likes of the
Mac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod as Apple hopes this product will have as much success as those
aforementioned have.

Scholarly Articles:
Smartphone Apps. Gray,Doug (Business Source Premier)
-Apple Smartphone
Advanced Search, scholarly only
Apple Scores win in Smartphone Wars Gobble, Mary Anne (Business Source Premier)
-Apple Smartphone
Advanced search.
Comparison (Internet vs Journal):
Ease of access- The internet is way easier; the CCBC database wasnt collaborating with the
searches.
Timeliness- The internet has the advantage in timeliness since some of the scholarly journals
dont even get published in time, sometimes 8 months after. The Apple Watch is newer
so the journals werent updated to it.
Authority- I feel those for the internet have more authority as they get paid to write these
established articles.
