I hope Apple x Bono x Beats do a Pono.   If they are serious about music.   It is all about the sound.   Blow me away Apple.
Requiem for the iPod. It is cruel to witness how Apple is killing its iPods one by one ...   2014 iPod Classic >> iPhone 6 Early 2015 iPod Nano >>  watch Early 2015 iPod Shuffle >>  watch Fall 2015 iPod Touch >> iPhone mini? 2016 The end of the iPod era. Shame, as its click wheel is still a relevant design concept.
 He's talking about the skeuomorphism trend of iOS6 to imitate real world objects to ease people into new experiences by making use of familiar references. It was advocated by Scot Forstall E.g.: a leather bound calendar, a gaming table in felt, a wooden bookcase, etc.In the end it resulted in a lot of bloatware, unnecessary slowing down simple common tasks and thus resulting in a bad user experience. The same applies to the digital crown: It adds complexity because it is...
I am a bit confused with Apple. They have this great "Continuity" technology which lets you have/make phone calls from any Apple device.I thought "Continuity" was going to shrink the size of the iPhone. The idea is that you rarely take your iPhone out of the bag and instead use a bigger (iPod/iPad) screen. It is a win win to Apple. You get the iPhone for Connectivity, iPod/iPad for productivity.Instead Apple launched the iPhone 6+ which offers Connectivity and Productivity...
[concerning the Unrumored Products]   No one seems to talk about the iPod. Yet, it still features prominently in the header of Apple's revamped website. It is very telling that the iPod is positioned in between iTunes and iPad. The iPad is actually a bigger screen iPod Touch:   Are we going to see a bigger screen for the iPod Touch? 5.5 inch does make sense here. With a much needed processor upgrade? And will it get a better camera? Last time the new iPod Touch was...
 I'd combine it with a "clickwheel": direct input = Siricontrol = "clickwheel"discrete input = iPhone The clickwheel is the (outer edge of the) watchface. It is ideal for both left and right handed use.Covering the watchface with your hand could be the home button.
 People back then (2007) were lusting for a widescreen iPod. Apple surprised them by doing the unthinkable. They offered: A phone, a widescreen iPod and an internet communicator.A phone, an iPod and an internet communicator.A phone, an iPod and ... you get it ?Its touch based interface was revolutionary as well. Just like the clickwheel was for the original iPod.What do we have now?A watch that looks like a mini tablet strapped on your wrist. Shame as its interface could...
The iPhone 6 is a thing of beauty, isn't she?   The rounded edges and glass make it very durable when you drop your phone. There are no sharp edges that can break off. The forces are evenly absorbed and distributed by the rounded corners.   The proportions of the iPhone 6 are ace. I always found the iPhone 5/5S odd looking. But the iPhone 6 nails it. This is an instant classic.   I am not too keen on the iPhone 6+. It is a fad to me. Phablets (any phone bigger than...
Good Move!   It is not about the watch. The watch is actually a gimmick.   Here are a few suggestions I have for Apple's "second generation watch":   The interface needs to be redesigned from the ground up: Photos, doodles and facebook have no place on your wrist. The bubbly homescreen is a nightmare as well. Keep the display discrete. Remember, your wrist is always in your view. You don't want to be distracted by butterflies or Mickey Mouse. Replace the digital...
Fair play to Samsung.   They pioneered the phablet.   (...)   I am not sure if that is meant to be a compliment
