This may be an indication that Google and Apple are negotiating a deal on patents! tv

Jeez, if you listen to all the dopey commentary out there you would think Apple had a problem on their hands, Let’s step back a minute #1 Apple walks a fine line when it comes to software, for the most part Apple places apps on their devices to set a bar for third parties to emulate. From day one, Apple’s has not made it their mission to produce the best software product, rather they will offer a product to fill a needed application gap. Apple believes that great software sells great hardware the Apple 2 made history because of a spreadsheet called Visicalc. Mac needed MacWrite before MSFT produced Word & Office. It is what has always set them apart from Microsoft, they wish to encourage third-party companies to produce great software, Apple wants a diverse echo system. #2 The new Map App has been fine for me so far but if I don’t like it, which is the case with the new podcast app I will look to a third-party. There must be one hundred navigation apps out there, priced from $.99 to $79.99. Right now the competition is exploiting an issue (they need something) and the Wall Street boys like to play the ups and downs so they add fuel to the fire.
No Big Deal!

Apple released iOS 6 today. Apple’s servers are functioning nicely. You can plug your iPhone into iTunes and click “Check for Update” or go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iPhone. Along with a slew of apps updated for the new iPhone and IOS 6 . Also released Mac Os 10.8.2 and 10.7.5 for those not on Mountain Lion
With Apple changing the design of the iPod Nano and what looks to be a modified version of IOS could it be that Apple will be introducing an iWatch with capabilities to interface with the iPhone and iPad? I think there exists a very strong possibility.
Apple may see a market to populate these devices with custom apps like weather, exercise pedometers, email, twitter and text monitors, health apps, remote controls and Siri interface to control it all. This is a market Apple could really get into especially design wise. I can see Jony Ive having a lot of fun designing a “Fashion Accessory ” combined with a separate SDK allowing third parties to develop apps for it, this could be very interesting.
The technology of Star Trek and Dick Tracy may finally be upon us.
Today Apple introduced a slew of products to kick off its first fiscal quarter for 2013. Jim Dalrymple of The Loop Insight provides a quick hands on review of the new products from San Francisco
During Samsung’s confusing closing arguments many of the points made by their Attorneys in one area actually strengthened Apple’s cause in others.
I am sure that the jury picked up on this.
this is not the result of competition, this is the result of a corporate culture that has been weaned on copyism (my new word), their lack of innovation and their addiction to copyism has served these companies fine when stealing industries from the innovators using low labor costs and toxic manufacturing to compete. tv Continue reading “Did Samsung’s Attorneys actually help Apple win their fight?

Apple Inc. has been sitting or the fence when it comes entering our living rooms with a television solution. The problems involved have been huge hurdles to get over. Yesterday we were informed that Apple had been granted a patent for a television channel guide UI software. This got me thinking about which way Apple may be heading and the more I think about it the more I see Apple’s fingerprints all over the place. Follow me here , this could be the Game Changer we have all been looking for! Continue reading “Can Apple untie this Gordian Knot we call Television ? I think I see the answer!” »
As a company Apple Inc. can be seen as sporting a Cheshire smile from ear to ear , Why you might ask , because they have been able to pull off their greatest product deception since , well, The original iPhone introduction. Read below to see I how believe Apple will surprise everyone with its new product.
During Intel’s annual investor day on Thursday, CEO Paul Otellini outlined the company’s plan to leverage its multi-billion-dollar chip fabrication plants, thousands of developers and industry sway to catch up in the lucrative mobile device sector, reports Forbes.
“Our job is to ensure our silicon is so compelling, in terms of running the Mac better or being a better iPad device, that as they make those decisions they can’t ignore us,” Otellini said.
The problem for Intel is two fold, First; this happens only if Apple is able to customize Intel’s chip to their specifications in order to maintain its dominance over competitors. Many reviewers neglect to credit Apple’s customized chips for the smooth user experience Apple can create by this process. Android like the Windows platform suffers from lowest common denominator approach to satisfy the many hardware accommodations needed to support their system. Second: Currently Apple’s ARM processors are produce by its untrustworthy manufacturer Samsung. Apple knows enough not to put all it’s eggs in one basket the beauty of ARM is that Apple can choose from many manufacturers, their problem encounter with Samsung is one of huge supply, Apple is working boldly to help other producers come up to speed, see related post below Maybe Intel can be trusted but they would have to supply a very compelling product, which I think is what Otellini is referring to. tv
