So this week was very interesting in Tech. Here is a roundup of events this week.
So we start with the big News from Apple. The company held a product launch event on 9th of September, 2014 at Cupertino, California where the company announced the launch of three major products and services. The Apple watch, iPhone (6 and 6 plus) and the Apple pay service. This was obviously a welcome News as Apple share jumped the net day with investors expressing satisfaction with the announcements. This did not come without a glitch as the live stream facility of the company went off and on frequently.
