Apple will always do what It will. Beyond that things like the Square and PayPal reader need access to the earphone port. Other specialty products do too. We need longer battery life not thinner instruments. Why, every two years, must we not only change our phone but a host of accessories as well? Yes, I know I am not "forced" to make such changes but the OS will make it Neccessary anyway. Thinner isn't better!
Humor in the drawing aside, what the illustration seems to tell us is there is no advances in the overall design format of the phone itself. The Bell System, aka AT&T, made telephone out of brass in the early days. Later on the moldable substances like Bakelite were employed to make heavy and breakable instruments. Finally, in the 1950's we saw phones of different colors thanks to Monsanto and a very durable plastic they developed for Bell Labs. The phone from a technical...
And they wanna do the same with gun control. The police let one of the terrorists go! They were told of an impending attack. They and others knew a serious event would take place. They didn't need back doors to our phones to know that. They let a key fugitive get away. They didn't need a back door to our phones for that. Haven't we learned from facts and those in the know. Government does not need more control over our lives.
Wonderful. A feat of daring do. I'm waiting until someone writes an app for Apple Watch simulating the Eight Ball fortune teller.
Apple could easily give the music industry 80% of the royalties and at ill make out just fine. The real rip is to the consumer who is only "renting" the music. There is no exchange of goods! Personally I despise subscription services because they chip away at one's monthly income. And when one counts up all the time not used its usually greater than used.
True to form: the first release of ANY new Apple product is in beta test....that is, it's being field tested by first adopters at their expense. In just a few " tech minutes" we all will learn the watch needs a larger battery in order to get more power to the transceiver, or more memory in order to store the larger apps or information to be exchanged in the communications chain...as now most is stored in the iPhone and not the watch itself. So, I predict the watch band...
All of the changes and "add-one" ( I called them innoventions) obviously cost more money than the flat price of the car. The software, in the video, didn't seem to show how much more all those fancy additions cost!
Quite cool indeed. The buyer of fellow operating the iPad didn't get the price tag for his innoventions!
Not too well thought out like the Apple Watch. Beautiful design. But, totally unnecessary $40 expenditure to charge the phone. Thing is I began limiting the accessories I buy for the iPhone because the design spec changes on a yearly basis and I'm left with the "junk" from iPhones past. Don't we all have patch plugs and cords from the larger connector to the smaller, longer, shorter, etc? I get tired of tossing tech.
We used to have a word for all this; snafu!
