Apple released a bunch of solid commercials Tuesday, but iPhone X is my favorite. It uses some gorgeous colors splashing around as a lure for the devices OLED screen. The colors grabbed my attention during the keynote when it was first shown. They reminded me a lot of the 70s’ kid’s toy, the Magic Window, but with a lot more colors. It’s compelling, bold, striking, and sexy. Interestingly, text at the end of the spot indicates that it hasn’t been approved by the FCC, and specifies that it can’t be sold until it is.
Apple posted a short spot called iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in 8 seconds. It’s a rapid fire look at some of the new features in the company’s new iPhone 8 line.
Apple has a new commercial called Surf that promotes Apple Watch Series 3’s ability to make and receive phone calls. It’s a powerful spot with strong imagery and a nice shot or two of the new Apple Watch.
Apple published a new commercial called Dear Apple. it promotes Apple Watch Series 3 by looking at letters that have been written to Apple and CEO Tim Cook. There will probably be shorter versions aired on TV, but the full version below is two minutes and 38 seconds. The testimonials range from health uses, sports cases, diabetes, car crashes, and a Russian cyborg (for real). I think it’s a great video.
Not so long ago the phrase “simple personal cloud storage” was an oxymoron. Setup and use weren’t simple and prices were more premium than personal. Then, My Cloud Home, a new personal storage device from Western Digital priced from $149.99, came along and changed everything. It’s reasonably-priced, simple to set up and use, and yet, surprisingly full-featured.
Apple’s surprise products at its “Let’s meet at our place” event were a large wireless charging plate for its new products, and an AirPods wireless charging case.
The new 5.8-inch model sports an OLED screen, Face ID instead of Touch ID, and inductive charging support.
You’ll be able to make phone calls from your wrist, but the new wearable device doesn’t feature much else in the way of new features other than additional color options for the case and bands.
Apple TV finally got 4K video support on Tuesday when Apple showed off a new model during its “Let’s meet at our place” media event.
It will ship with 64GB and 256GB models, starting at $699 for iPhone 8 and $799 for iPhone 8 Plus.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said Tuesday that Apple Watch is not just the number one smartwatch on the planet, it’s now the number one watch. It would represent a huge accomplishment for Apple, and one that should scare the pants off the watch world. In the screenshot I included, Apple Watch is about to overcome Rolex to be the top brand in terms of sales.

Apple’s iPhone X will reportedly support wireless charging, but the company’s own charger pad won’t be ready when the new smartphone ships.

Apple’s online store was replaced with the familiar “We’ve got something special in store for you” sign early Tuesday morning ahead of today’s “Let’s meet at our place” media event.
Jeff Butts isn’t real happy with all of the changes in the app, but finds some aspects of Podcasts in iOS 11 easier to use.
Great strides are being made in artificial intelligence, so how far will governments go to seize that technology to gain an edge for themselves?
Dr. Alan Stern is a planetary scientist with the Southwest Research Institute. He’s also the co-founder and chief scientist of World View, working with high altitude balloon research. He is perhaps most famous as the principle investigator for NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto. Way back in grade school, Alan was interested in space exploration and wanted to be a part of the Star Trek future. He received his Ph.D. in planetary science from the University of Colorado, and that launched his life-long interest in Kuiper Belt Objects and the Oort Cloud. He’s a licensed pilot, was selected by NASA as a Payload Specialist, and has flown research missions in high performance jet aircraft. We talked about his career, the New Horizons mission design, Pluto discoveries (and planetary classification) and his latest research.
