Well, Apple still doesn't make a lot of key components for existing products (LCD displays for example) If their effort (or one of the their efforts) is to marry a high tech digital display with a quality analog watch, they would need to partner. If the watch crystal could be invisible to show a traditional, real watch face, and then turn opaque with a full color screen overlay, it would be incredibly interesting...
This ad is borderline embarrassing for Samsung, not to mention horribly mis-timed. If you wanted to point our your one differentiating feature, size, why would this ad have run over a year ago? With the new iPhone rumors rampant, you're just reminding people to wait.   This does nothing to keep existing customers; it gets them pumped to jump.
I'm sure if it benefitted them to pay directly from offshore money, they would.
So built (purchased) in Germany? Perhaps this is a way to spend some of that overseas cash, presuming the import duties are less than US income tax if Apple were to move the money here.
At first glance, it appears to be a wall mounted device. But with a USB port on the bottom, it wouldn't set flush against a wall, or desk, for that matter...perhaps there is a wall mount with integrated power connector as well.
It doesn't matter if you're a donkey or an elephant, if you're pro or anti Obama. A corporation should minimize any public impression of political leaning. Carney is way too close to the Obama administration and the baggage that carries Currently, much more of the country thinks poorly of Obama than admires him. Why bring that tarnish to your jewels, especially when an unknown with strong skills would be perfectly fine for that position.
This would not be a great hire...they should avoid even the inference of political affiliation (yeah, I get Gore is on the Board, but the board members are essentially invisible)
Staggering the release of the 4.7 and 5.5, if all this is true, makes sense to gauge market demand better...if the 4.7 sells faster of slower than they've estimated, in can reveal a greater or lesser demand for a 5.5, and production can be ramped accordingly.
Apple's upcoming Spotlight rebirth is a huge salvo toward Google. It is the front end for the eventual launch of their own search engine   It is essential for them do to this, as its the backbone for so many other technologies. And all the extra capacity they have been building out in the new data centers is not just for streaming media and iCloud storage. Its likely to run silent and internal for years, like the five years of secret OS X Intel development during the PPC...
I happen to think BMW's iDrive works very well, so hopefully the adoption of CarPlay doesn't tread on good features for the sake of other benefits. Specifically, touch control in a (moving) car is a horrible idea. I had it with Lexus, and some other car rentals that used the Sync system... Horrible...Beyond the instability of reaching for a touch screen, Lexus (lawyers) simply turned off several features while the car was moving (because they knew it was a daft idea to...
