The Case For a Shatterproof iPhone

· John Martellaro · TMO Linked Teasers

iPhone 6s

The iPhone’s display is made of Corning’s gorilla glass. It’s durable, but not indestructible. As a result, most iPhone customers (try to) protect their investment with a case. Should Apple try to make the iPhone shatterproof?  Is it possible? Will a case be, someday, unnecessary? Or is an iPhone that can be damaged preferable in some respects?  Page two of Friday’s Particle Debris explores.

Apple Customers Seeking 'iPhone Stress Relief'

· John Martellaro · TMO Linked Teasers

Stressed woman

Despite the evolution of the iPhone, with its ever increasing sophistication, the replacement rate by customers is systematically stretching out. Why is this happening? It’s likely based more on economics, technical maturity and customer stress analysis than a waning appetite for technology. A research chart shows the reality.

Apple Needs Supercomputer Expertise to Compete

· John Martellaro · TMO Linked Teasers

NASA supercomputer

just over a decade ago, Apple was very much into supercomputers. Organizations were building large supercomputers and small clusters with Apple’s Xserves. But Apple got out of that business and then discontinued the Xserve. One can only wonder what the impact would have been if Apple had decided to maintain its in-house expertise with supercomputers. Today, companies with the best supercomputer power will have a competitive edge. Page 2 of Particle Debris discusses.
