Today's topics include new information on the Apple Watch, additional compute capabilities from Juniper Networks, news on the availability of Intel's Compute Stick and fresh network switch offerings from Dell.

Apple announced several weeks ago that preorders would begin for the upcoming Apple Watch on April 10, but now the company is filling in the blanks with more information, such as the 3:01 a.m. EDT start time when it will accept the first customer orders.

Apple announced the additional details on its Website, while also advising customers that they can configure their Apple Watch models, colors, bands and other details ahead of time and save them in online Apple accounts to streamline the preorder process when sales start.

Juniper Networks is putting more compute capabilities into its networking hardware to help financial services institutions accelerate their business-critical applications while reducing the latency in their environments.

In the third quarter, the networking vendor will launch the QFX5100-AA switch and QFX-PFA accelerator module, which will enable users to distribute more compute capabilities across the network infrastructure and leverage Intel's x86 Xeon server processors.

Earlier this year, Intel unveiled the Compute Stick, a PC-on-a-stick device that is about the size of a normal USB drive and essentially lets people take their PC wherever they go.

Now the device reportedly is landing on a number of online shopping sites, including Amazon and Newegg. Both sites have the device listed, but both also say that they are out of stock.

Newegg is indicating that more will be available May 1. Amazon says it's unclear whether the Compute Stick will be back in stock.

Dell is offering a new family of 1 Gigabit Ethernet and 10GbE managed switches that come in a range of rack mount models that are designed to be easy to configure and troubleshoot. Dell is also adding to its N-Series of switches with the N1500, which offers 24 and 48 ports for smaller managed networks.

The new offerings give Dell a lineup of networking switches for small and midsize businesses, a market that is significant in size but still under-served, according to Arpit Joshipura, vice president of strategy and product management for Dell Networking.
