Duh! It's "Art"!More redundantly, it's Apple!Crazies & Haters will be.
Isn't it ironic how, despite the lauding of HTML etc. based apps on crapforms ("crap"'s similar enough to "plat" - WebOS, Windows whatever, Blackberry, Firefox: basically platforms with no developers), Apple not only spear-headed web apps but have given them great support in iOS and OS X. Ha.
That won't happen any time soon.So the killer app for Apple TV is eliminating the airplay lag. Interesting.
Read dreyfus2's post. Telefonica's O2 is a European telecom company. Spain is irrelevant.I'm switching from O2 with the new iPhone. Their cynical (but arguably, spot on) tariffs where you now get pretty-much flat rate minutes and texts with differing levels of egregious data fees are ridiculous.They're kinda on-the-ball in many respects, and they're after what they think will benefit them the most. It just isn't what would benefit me as a consumer. It doesn't benefit me to...
At this point, smartphone share really becomes meaningless if people are using them as feature phones. Maybe an iPhone mini can disrupt this somewhat, but it's rather unnecessary for apple to compete in that market.
Possibles for an "iWatch": 1) iPhone functionality: Calls, clock (obv), notifications, Siri 2) Fuelband/up/nano pedometer, open to these kind of movement tracking applications 3) Biometrics: authentication, recording of pulse etc. 4) Radio comms: payments, passes (ski pass?), universal remote? The potential for cross-over with these kind of functions is amazing, if not a little scary. On form-factor, they have a choice of watch face with an included, interchangeable...
Since this is just measuring web usage, from a ux standpoint, it seems more than half of people are more comfortable using the same orientation they'd use on a traditional PC display.Whether this says most about the users, the iPad itself, or the websites they're using is conjecture and guess-work.It would be much more interesting if we could see some correlation with demographic data to present some hypotheses.
As well as the reasons Flaneur mentioned above, there's another design aspect: cellular radios.It is truly a feat of engineering that the radio-transparent glass/ceramic panels on the iPhone 5 are as small as they are. Cellular radios use a ton of energy and are very fickle when it comes to reception. Remember the first iPhone? iPod touch has a wifi and Bluetooth radio only. Their transmission distances are lower etc. If Apple could do a great curved back metal iphone to...
It's interesting to see what's different in Apple's app. The obvious ones are the positioning of the temperature and the inclusion of the status bar. The former is a matter of taste, and the latter is in the HIG. They've replaced the "Forcast" text with the much better [day] Today, and included the highs and lows of the day there, rather than crowd the main (currentish) temperature. Mostly to do with clarity, one presumes. Also of interest to me are Apple's use of an "i"...
Fingerprint auth. allows Apple to have true Triple Factor Auhentication: 1) Something you know: Passcode or Apple ID Password 2) Something you have: iPhone... 3) Something you are: Thumbprint scan This combination would be a very strong combo with the banks, Paypal, Visa/MC etc. Get these fus on board, and you've got yourself a payment platform. Getting EPOS systems compliant, now that's a giant hurdle. If the above guys are suitably impressed, they can really help...
