Apple + Telsa sounds lovely.

Staggeringly prescient, just months from being fired.

Great Use Of the New iPhone 5s Slow-Mo Video

So much creative greatness forthcoming from this feature.

Everyone seems to be overlooking just how amazing popular and cool this is going to be.

In which Paul Krugman reveals he knows little about Apple, Microsoft, Android, YouTube, PCs, Macs, iOS, iTunes, file formats, digital copyright laws, and technology in general. 

Exactly what I thought.

“When you’re young, you look at television and think, There’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth.”

Puts it in perspective – an improvement across the board, IMHO.

The design of iOS 7: simply confusing

Apple is showing that can adapt, borrow, and tweak ideas from the competition. That it can expand what iOS feels and looks like, as well as what it can do. The problem now is that it seems to be buckling a bit under the weight of an end-to-end redesign.

Whilst I think there are elements of iOS 7 that are jarring (and I hope are ironed out before full release in Autumn), I can’t help but feel that Topolsky is trying to justify his own personal aesthetic preference (and subsequent dislike) of iOS 7’s appearance with absolute bollocks.

The Verge’s Apple trolling continues.

Apple unveils iOS 7.

At first, I was bewildered and didn’t like it. In fact, I hated the homescreen.

A few hours later and I absolutely love it. My iPhone looks hideous now. Piece of junk.

Some of the home screen icons are a bit iffy, and the “Control Centre” is arguably uglyAcross the board, though, it’s a pretty amazing unification of iOS’ design and a huge improvement on the skeuomorphic, broadly design-chaotic iOS 6.

Bring on the future.

The new Mac Pro is insane, in many different senses of the word. The new Mac Pro is insane, in many different senses of the word.

A great piece.

Really nice until the icon is revealed. 

However, credit where it’s due – it’s an incredibly well thought-out concept that shows up some glaring minor annoyances with the Music app. Apple should take note.

With iOS 7, Apple will drop the shiny, transparent time bar on the top of the Lock screen in exchange for a shine-free, black interface. Additionally, the square-grid for entering a pin code has been replaced with round, black buttons with white text and white borders. Additionally, sources say that notifications on the Lock screen may see improved manipulability with gestures.

Sounds nice.

Quite. It seems ridiculous that now they are being chased for doing what every company does – maximising value for shareholders. Is this not an American principle?

And does anyone really think this money is better spent in government hands?
