#Apple

it’s all about creativity. “What will your verse be?” 

parislemon:

The Mad magazine reference is great, but I wish they would have gone with picture #1 or #2.
#1 suggests that Apple executives are “just like us” — addicted users of great products (that they just happen to build).
#2 looks like the album cover for some odd jazz trio trying (too hard) to look both hip and important.

I love these different mockups. I would have to agree #1 would be by personal preference - it’s looks natural & quite normal as though they were caught off guard

Having read & watched countless reviews I have finally made up my mind to upgrade, now just have to choose a network
There are loads of reviews out there but here are a few of my favourites:
For a simple yet effect review, Walt Mossberg.
For a more visual review, The Verge
For a bit more in depth review, John Gruber.

Last question: What is Apple’s mission?

To make the very best products in the world that really deeply enrich people’s lives. That’s what we’re about. And now it’s not to make the most. It’s not to have the highest market cap, but that’s the result of doing the first one well. That’s what we’re about. And hopefully you can see that in our products and, more importantly, feel that in the experience you have using them. That’s what we’re about.

And everybody here knows that. That’s the beauty of this place. We don’t have to put posters on the wall to remind people of that. Everybody knows it.

A really great read. Cook’s passion for the company & what they are doing really comes through

The ever changing face of the iMac. Even the first design was pretty cool, find out more here
As Seth Weintraub from 9 to 5 Mac says

"It’s simple really. The iMac saved Apple. Without the iMac, you don’t have the iPhone, iPod, iPad or anything else. If the iMac flops, Apple is over. If the iMac is status quo, Apple doesn’t survive. Because the iMac was a resounding success we have the Apple we know and (sometimes) love"

The iMac was instrumental in the apple we know today.

The Sub £500 Apple Laptop

I’ve been thinking a lot lately on how people always used to call for a sub £500 Apple laptop. Well Apple basically answered this with the iPad.

Then people called for an Apple device for reading on & guess what Apple has answered this with the iPad mini (it’s awesome by the way & worth a purchase depending on your current tech situation)

It’s funny how people always claim that Apple don’t listen to their customers.

Love this app

Such an awesome little app & the update has just made it better

Refinement is the aim of the game. 

It’s now a matter of evolution not revolution.

This Is How Patent Agreements Should Work »

Teksler noted that Apple and Microsoft have a cross-license agreement that does cover the design patents at issue in this case, but said that there are also special “anti-cloning” provisions in the agreement between those two companies. “We couldn’t copy each other’s products,” Teksler said.

People Aren't Yet Believing In The Cloud »

Google have halted sales of the 16GB Nexus 7 due to supply issues.

The Guardian understands that Google’s planners had thought that buyers on the Google Play store, more than from physical or online retailers, would be more committed to the company’s “cloud” concept, and so would have more of their content stored online, rather than wanting to keep it on the device.

So normal people aren’t yet buying in to the whole cloud idea surprise surprise. This is surely understandable considering the Nexus 7 is wifi only & can’t access the internet any other way.

On another note this has to be a massive positive for Google as they make more money from the 16GB versions & people are now actually buying an Android tablet. 

Plus this will surely help to give a massive boast to the Android ecosystem which will surely lead to more tablet specific apps being developed. All of which can only help Google & other OEM’s try to catch Apple in a tablet market that the iPad pretty much controls.

The Green U-Turn »

I find this so funny

So this has made the relationship between Apple & EPEAT stronger. Really.

Apple basically realised they were likely to lose some big government contracts & therefore lose large sums of money so changed their mind & because of Apple’s size EPEAT accepted them back with open arms.

A future where you get, read & sign a contract via an iPad.
That’s a future I like the idea of.
Just awesome!
