Now Apple has standard game controllers for iOS devices, it begs for games and other apps to be playable on the AppleTV. I am hoping this comes sooner rather than later.
Consider all the high quality leaks for the iPhone 5s and 5c. We know what they look like, we have seen their components, the boxes they come it. There is video of a 5c running with the screen on. Here is a detailed photo of the 5s fingerprint sensor. OK now ask yourself why there has not been one single leaked photo of the iWatch? Does it not really exist or is Apple building it in a super secret assembly like using robots?
The real fire sale is the Surface RT tablet and touch cover for $199 now on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/32GB-Microsoft-Surface-RT-Tablet-bundle-with-Black-Touch-Cover/181164214746
Cool things Apple could do with an iWatch: When you hold it up to look at it, the screen turns. It could generate energy for itself as you move your arm while walking. It would know when you go for a walk or jog and activate tracking and other feature automatically. When you are at rest near an AppleTV, it could show you a remote control app. The pod cast app would gather shows you are interested in when connected to WiFi. Apple could automatically generate news and...
Meanwhile, Siri can now change the screen brightness which is a feature I asked for myself: "dim the screen" Siri: OK I made it a bit darker. "full brigthness" Siri: This is as bright as it gets. I find this much better than Glass jokes.
I disagree completely with the DOJ's take on Steve Jobs' e-mail. Apple was clearly going ahead with its in-app purchase with its new payment system. Steve was saying that forcing Amazon to adopt it in their Kindle app would be a good thing for consumers since Apple's payment system is "far superior". Steve's other e-mail was interesting as well. It was in response to an angry e-mail from the developer of the iFlow reader app over the changes to the in-app purchase...
The best thing to do with Microsoft is to break it up into several smaller companies. This would raise shareholder value while avoiding the internal conflicts that have held this company back for so many years.
The cable companies will get to keep exclusive rights to channels like HBO but no one wants channels any more they want content. NetFlix and Amazon already have access to some of the content such as Breaking Bsd and now Apple will as well. In the end the cable companies will become ISPs and the obsolete concepts of channels, scheduled programming and inserted ads will vanish into history.
It would be great if the new version of Parallels remembered the position of icons on the Windows desktop. It often jumbles the positions of the icons when the screen changes sizes which it likes to do for no reason when you re-open the Parallels window after it has been minimized. I use IconRestorer to work around this issue.
At least Android has Google Drive accessible to all apps that want it. The only way to share documents between apps via a common storage location on iOS is to use Google Drive or Drop Box third party SDKs. Apple has no way to do this. It is a huge miss and one I expect will hurt the platform over the next year.
