Whilst I agree with you and everybody else's comments on the idiocy of this 7.5 million dollar a year CEO, I don't agree that the RBC mobile app is all that bad. At least not in practical usage. In fact, I use it frequently and like it. I don't have anything to compare it with but it fulfills all the functions I need, and it is speedy. The fact that it doesn't used touch ID is a shame, however.
Meanwhile in Canada the 7.5 million a year CEO of RBC sees his bank as being in a collision course with Apple (and Google). "Dave McKay, the chief executive of Royal Bank of Canada, says the bank is on a “collision course” with the likes of Apple Inc. and Google Inc. as customers begin to fully embrace mobile banking. Apple Pay, the smartphone giant’s mobile payment platform, is taking off in the United States, but such systems threaten to get in between banks and their...
The demographic that pays to avoid ads would be the most desirable to the advertisers. Very clever but I sincerely hope Apple will never be tempted 'work' it's client base like that.
I agree. Its unbelievable to have someone like Tim Cook at the helm. Very reassuring. But things are good for Apple now. A couple of CEO's down the road, a few disastrous product launches, Apple out of favour with the public, a few nips and tucks, a greater need to apiece shareholders, disillusioned talent deserting en masse... that's when the Apple the behemoth becomes a worrisome beast. I hope I will never see such a day. May the spirit of Tim Cook be as deeply embedded...
Hmm... any haptic feedback for those of us who only ever tap? No clicking.
I think Apple is very cognizant of the implications any such move might its customers perception of Apple, and also of the fact that this would be blown out of all proportion. I think there is much we don't know and if Apple decides to share it's customers' viewing habits they will come right out and explain. The slippery slope you are talking about is probably the biggest danger to Apple over time imo. Apple is an amazing company on so many levels but a slide down any...
Nothing about cutting the chord will lead to lower prices to the end consumer for content. Of that I am pretty certain. If al a cart program selection is implemented then perhaps, for some, but on the whole I can't see it. Personally I'd rather have more granular content control and no adverts in drama and documentary genres than lower prices. Apple giving up customers' viewing habits shows that this is a 'land grab' situation.More interesting is why. Apple probably isn't...
I think my option for using a backdrop would only have been a choice if location shooting was overly problematic (and I can easily imagine that being the case). I also don't know what the design studio space is like. If it is large with plenty ceiling height, and with plenty space to step back and use a fairly long lens and avoid too much spill light on the glass, then it is a fairly simple shoot. Lighting behind the glass would pretty simple - just small accent lights for...
And its not a very complex set-up. Its well done, as in highly professional, but it is much like all other Apple 'people' shots. The only way it could be done in the studio, and this would have made the set-up simpler because it is formulaic, would have been to hang a backdrop photograph of the design studio in the photographic studio. The very even-ness of the background soft focus supports this idea. It would also be the simplest and least invasive way of getting the...
Sure are!
