Few announcements summon as much attention as a brand new iPhone, and this year, for the second time in as many years, Apple gave us two models of its smartphone to pore over. I got my mitts on the newest mobile devices in the hands-on area after Tuesday's event, and here are a few first impressions about the latest entries in Apple's mobile-handset line.
Roll them bones, strain the tea leaves, and consult your crystal balls. With Apple's September 9 event now a matter of public record, the only sensible way to while away the hours over the next week and a half is to speculate about what precisely the company might have hidden up its sleeves strange temporary building.
Historically, enterprise computing hasn't been one of Apple's strong spots. But ever since the introduction of the iPhone and iPad, the company's presence in the business market has seemed to be almost continuously expanding. On Tuesday, that presence expanded even further as Apple and IBM announced a joint venture of mobile business apps and services.
Apple's annual shareholder meeting is one of its most un-Apple-like gatherings. Attendance is limited to company shareholders and press, CEO Tim Cook and other executives often take questions, and attendees are asked to not take their electronic devices into the meeting. All of that adds up to an interesting trickle of information from a variety of sources around the Web, which we've collected for you in one easy-to-digest package.
For 30 years now, we've lived with the Mac, through the good, the bad, and even the ugly. But as we celebrate this momentous anniversary, I found myself wondering just how much longer the Mac we know and love will continue to be an integral part of our lives.
Buying Apple products from your iPad just got a whole lot easier. More than three years after Cupertino released an Apple Store app for the iPhone, the company has finally followed it up with an Apple Store app for iPad.
What's better than one Apple event? Two Apple events, naturally. The folks from Cupertino evidently agree, as they have dispatched invitations to the media for a gathering next Tuesday, October 22, in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater.
Watching Apple through the lens of public perception, it would be easy to buy into the idea that the company has been under siege of late. But even if that were the case, it's clear that Apple isn't buying the hype.
Fans of money, hold on to your hats. Apple has announced that its next quarterly financial conference call will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 2pm Pacific, 5pm Eastern (US time). In all likelihood, CEO Tim Cook will be joined by CFO Peter Oppenheimer, and the inscrutably terse company treasure, Gary Wipfler, to discuss Apple's performance in its second fiscal quarter of 2013.
While technological progress and the environment often seem to be at odds, many tech companies are working hard to lessen the impact their businesses have on the planet. Over the last several years, Apple has released an annual progress report about its environmental status, and this year is no different.
Every time Apple enters—or seems to even think about entering—another market, we’re barraged with noise about how the company should, or must, or can’t reinvent this industry. Why all the attention? Because Apple has a remarkable track record of having reinvented industries before, and the reward for a job well done is - surprise - another job.
