Apple didn't mention it during the company's "It's Been Too Long" media event, but the company has taken a bold step in giving consumers power over their wireless service for iPad Air 2. Apple's iPad Air 2 website shows that the device ships with the "Apple SIM," a new SIM that allows you to switch between AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile in the U.S.
I’ve written about Macworld Expo often over the years and it’s been part of my life for as long as I’ve been a geek. I’ll miss attending more than I can put into words. Rather than try, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and relive some of the words I’ve written about Macworld Expo over the years.
GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT) said in filings that its agreements with Apple were "oppressive and burdensome." The company told the bankruptcy court that the only way to stop the bleeding was by terminating its deal.
Apple said it was surprised by GT Advanced Technologies's (GTAT) decision to file for bankruptcy protection. GTAT makes furnaces used in the production of synthetic sapphire, and the two companies had partnered on a massive sapphire manufacturing facility outside Mesa, Arizona. The firm filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday, October 8th, and Apple's statement characterized the move as "surprising."
GT Advanced Technologies CEO Tom Gutierrez has already been dealing with the headaches that go along with his company filing for bankruptcy protection, and now those headaches may be growing following the news that he sold more than 9,000 shares of company stock the day before Apple announced the iPhone 6. Apple didn't use GTAT's sapphire glass for the new iPhone models as had been expected, which drove the glass maker's stock down 13 percent.
GT Advanced Technologies (GT) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday, a move that would give the sapphire producer and Apple supplier a chance to reorganize its finances and debt. GT's move may be surprising to some, considering the US$578 million deal the company inked with Apple, and it's proof that being an Apple supplier isn't an easy job.
Apple will hold its next major media event on October 16th, according to unnamed sources cited by Re/code's John Paczkowski. The event will be held in Apple's Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, CA, and it will be centered around new iPads and iMac models.
Microsoft unveiled its grand plan for moving past the Windows 8 legacy, which is to skip a number and go straight to Windows 10. Hey, wow. It's just like OS X 10.10 Yosemite! Imagine that?
The FBI and other law enforcement folk are tense about Apple's gleeful proclamationt that the company can't unencrypt our data. FBI Director James Comey told reporters that he is "very concerned" about tech companies like Apple and Google stepping up their privacy game and protecting customer data. Bryan Chaffin argues law enforcement has only itself to blame.
Back in the early days of the iPhone, it was a fairly small device that easily fit in a shirt pocket or jeans pocket.
Today, the power of the iPhone and the demands we make of it virtually require a larger display. So how do we carry it?
