Gotcha.Yeah I just watched the keynote again. I like how he said "by default, it runs in the most restricted sandbox"At least Apple is thinking about it! Plus... any 3rd-party keyboard would have to pass Apple's app approval process. That's good.Just curious though... what sort of stuff would you gain by letting a keyboard have network access?
I thought that's what they said in the keynote?
True... but that keynote was the start of Apple's developer conference and the room was full of developers.We all love Apple and know they are doing just fine... but the fact still remains that 8 out of 10 smartphones sold today are running Android.Tim Cook was just reinforcing the point that Apple has a wonderful platform and he backed it up with the numbers from their next competitor.It's not like the entire keynote was devoted to trash talking. There was plenty of time...
The phone number in the demo was 408-974-1010 Apple's main switchboard is 408-996-1010 Kinda curious about those last 4 digits... coincidence? Anyway... someone actually did call that number. It is indeed an Apple number... with a pissed off operator. http://mashable.com/2014/06/02/apple-dr-dre-phone-number-wwdc-2014/
I had a buddy in college who had one of these. (ah the 90's... a time when cell phones were still kinda rare)He pretty much carried it in his hand most of the time. It didn't really fit in a pocket.And the thing ONLY made phone calls... such a primitive time!
I like that.... quiet time.Reminds me of:
Exactly.And there were probably many iOS developers in the audience who are also Android developers (or they have Android developers on their team)I'm bet after hearing the announcements yesterday that they will begin to question the viability of developing for Android.iOS may not have the most market share or installed base.... but it's a proven platform that gets results.WWDC 2014 enforced that even further.
What's weird is... Samsung launches a flagship and their market share goes up a tiny bit in the US.But HTC launches a flagship and their market share goes down a tiny bit in the US.It's been pretty bad times for HTC over the past few years... it would be a shame for them to disappear.
Thanks for the info! The way people have been talking since the deal was rumored... it sounded like Apple was hiring two random people off the street. I'm glad to hear the full story. (someone should have posted the Dr Dre iChat video weeks ago... I never saw it until today... and I've read every tech story about this acquisition)As for crappy headphones... I'd like to see Apple get serious about audio devices. Apple bought a well-recognized brand name so they'll have...
Wow... thanks! Why hasn't anyone mentioned this video before?It looks like Apple has some kind of rapport with Dr. Dre already.And I've heard that Jimmy Iovine has been talking to Tim Cook for many years.This deal doesn't sound that out-of-whack after all.
