They tried getting other more suitable actors to play this part - Bale, DiCaprio but they didn't want it.
Its a nice trailer. But I still find it very odd even a bit funny that this guy, who doesn't look or sound like Jobs at all, they're calling here - Steve Jobs! Its going to take all my abilities at suspending disbelief to watch this movie, but I'm going to try anyway because it just might be good!
A 4" iPhone 6C with metal body and Touch ID sounds ideal for a base model, and for those who want a more compact device. The plastic iPhone 5C was a good design, but still didn't feel premium enough for an Apple device, after all there are plenty of cheap plastic Androids to choose from. With last years iPhone 6 as the new mid-tier device and the 6S/6S Plus topping up the range, you've got a good lineup going into the holiday season.
Its nice to see that Apple hasn't forgotten about the product line that helped prevent it from going belly up nearly 15 years ago. I hope these rumours are correct and the venerable iPod line gets a decent (but probably final) upgrade.
Nice if it included accelerometers and a gyroscope (a la iPhone) for native gesture support. Without the problem of the iPhone switching itself off after a few minutes.
I ike Pharrell, he's a very nice guy.
Yes screen flexibility is good to help reduce damage in an accident and help support functions like force touch, but a curved smartphone body is not necessary.
I believe Tidal streams using AAC like Apple only at the higher bitrate of 320k, then there's the even higher quality lossless CD quality tier. I still think it's a shame Tidal are having such problems, the're a good service with great sound quality.
Why is RF pass through a problem? I would of thought it an advantage, as you can potentially construct casings for devices like smartphones without leaving a 'window' for the internal radios to function, like you have to do today with casings constructed from metals like aluminium. And any potential harmful radiation emanating from a device you can take care of internally using metal foils or cages over the offending areas. Like you also do today with electronic products...
This continuing saga with Apple and Liquidmetal reminds me a bit of Graphene. Another exotic material with 'amazing' properties that you keep on sporadically reading about in the science/technology media over many years, but nothing actually comes of it...no products using the stuff ever come to market in a significant way. I do think Liquidmetal has actually got more production potential than Graphene, but its still taking too long.
