Toshiba is ready to sell its memory chip business to Bain Capital, the consortium that includes financial support from Apple, Dell, Hoya, and Hynix.
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.
Unless a significant issue is found, macOS High Sierra 10.13 GM candidate (17A362a) will likely be the last release before the September 25th launch.
Allow me to state up front that I don’t agree with the sentiment of this parody video, but it’s very well done and very funny. It’s a snarky look at the “$1,000 Emoji Machine,” aimed at the Animoji feature unique to iPhone X. Also, it’s not safe for work.
Apple’s new Steve Jobs Theater had its debut, and Bryan and Jeff talk about some of the amazing things we saw. They also spew some vitriol all over Apple’s decision to pull the App Store from iTunes, and discuss their favorite aspects of Apple Watch Series 3 and iPhone X.
Launching a modest iPhone 8 upgrade on time and delaying the very attractive iPhone X must be a cause of concern for Apple.
Taking away the ability to browse iOS apps on Macs and PCs is a step backward for users, and those backward steps are annoying as @&#%!
Apple has quietly rewritten the rules for media events and presentation yet again, and this photograph demonstrates that.
Former Apple Senior Director Michael Gartenberg and I got together to discuss Apple’s September 12 event, “Let’s Meet at Our Place.” We traded thoughts on the new Apple Watch Series 3, the Apple TV 4K, the iPhone 8 series and the iPhone X. Michael’s insights are, as always, amazing. Don’t miss this special edition coverage.
macOS High Sierra will ship on September 25th, according to information added to the High Sierra website.
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.
The new 5.8-inch model sports an OLED screen, Face ID instead of Touch ID, and inductive charging support.
It will ship with 64GB and 256GB models, starting at $699 for iPhone 8 and $799 for iPhone 8 Plus.
