Apple redid its executive profiles using the upcoming Memoji feature in iOS 12 for iPhone X (and new iPhone models to be announced this fall), all as part of its World Emoji Day celebration/blitz.
Apple Senior Vice President Angela Ahrendts is going to be interviewed at Cannes Lions, but the person interviewing her is an Apple employee. Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet think that’s a little weird. In hindsight, they also think it’s weird that Andy Rubin thought he could make money making Android hardware, an Essential(ly) bad idea. In the third segment, Jeff helps Bryan spend money when picking between a 2nd HomePod and a soundbar now that AirPlay 2 is here.
Starting in January, Apple will start surveying people who participate in Today at Apple events. These are free events in Apple retail stores where people can learn about something from an expert.
The stunning location features 32-foot glass panels, a carbon-fiber roof, and a series of events developed specifically for Chicago.
Angela Ahrendts long coat got a lot of attention during Apple’s iPhone media event on Tuesday. TMO reader Alan Adams and his wife recognized it from a recent trip to Paris, and sent me a link to it. It’s called the Macramé Lace Trench Coat, and it’s priced at a mere US$2,895. Not surprisingly, it’s from Burberry, where Ms. Ahrendts used to be CEO. Today, she is Apple’s senior vice president in charge of retail.
Apple has quietly rewritten the rules for media events and presentation yet again, and this photograph demonstrates that.
Bryan and Jeff go on an epic rant about Facebook and its attitude about humanity and our very lives. They also talk about problems they’ve been seeing with CAPTCHA systems, and ask whether or not Apple can make its retail locations places where people hang out.
