A new LCD display technology for 4K UHD is called Quantum Dots. On the other hand, Organic LEDs are often mentioned as a next generation technology for iPhone displays. John Martellaro interviewed Paul Gagnon, Director of TV Research at IHS Technology to find out more about these two technologies and possible use in Apple's future iPhone.
Erica Sadun is an expert in all things related to iOS. She holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Georgia Tech's Graphics, Visualization and Usability Center, did early development work in Objective-C, has written many books about iOS development, and has recently embraced Apple's Swift language, culminating in her latest book: the "Swift Developer's Cookbook." I've had the pleasure of meeting Erica many times, back when she had time to manage the Denver Apple Geek lunches. Erica presented me with some intriguing ideas about the state of Apple, iOS, and Apple's product line imagination. Your Apple thinking will be challenged in this candid interview.
Soon our cars will be semi- or fully autonomous. That will require the best minds on the planet, engineers and A.I. experts, to write highly error proof and secure code. Current computer languages are close, but earn no cigar and weren't designed for Apple's needs. What better than for Apple to invent its own language, Swift, and get the whole world to test it first?
Back when Steve Jobs was very ill, the subject of a corporate succession plan came up. Nowadays, with a vigorous and healthy Tim Cook, there are no worries. However, a CEO succession plan is still necessary. Who's on it?
The iPad Pro, the iPad Mini 4 and the iPad Air 2 do not have an orientation lock/mute slider button on the side. Here's how to control these functions in iOS 9 for these latest iPads.
Kirk McElhearn is an expert technical journalist for all things Apple. He's known as "The iTunes Guy" and has a regular column at Macworld. His career started in France as a translator of technical material, and that led to his career as a writer. Kirk has written many books about the Mac as well as several "Take Control Books," including tutorials on iTunes, Audio Hijack and Scrivener. Kirk lives in the UK, and he loves Shakespearean plays and classical music. Clearly this is a man after my own heart. We've followed each other for years, and so I was eager to interview him. In the second half of the show, we both have some rather sharp observations about iTunes that you won't want to miss.
This week's news debris articles tell a story. After three years of research, Apple could come up with nothing better than a 1080p Apple TV. But while Apple has been denied leadership in 4K UHD, it can win another really big game if it can solve the biggest problem we have with electric cars.
Accessory makers have kept their USB-C powder dry until CES and have announced a flurry of new devices. Here's a visual roundup of many of the notable USB-C devices seen this week. The spectrum ranges from simple cable adapters to hubs, displays and storage.
LAS VEGAS - CES 2016. A decade ago, who would have thought that car companies would be leaders and big spenders in artificial intelligence and robotics? But here we are in 2016, and Toyota is announcing its all-star leadership team for its massive artificial intelligence and robotics research.
