If you happen to known an Android user who's been wanting to trade in his or her Apple device for an iPhone, you should tell them that they might have the chance to do so soon. In other news, Apple's not too happy about a damning new documentary about Steve Jobs.
Apple's done a lot (particularly under the tenure of CEO Tim Cook) to bolster its reputation as a "force for good," but an upcoming documentary for BBC One aims to show that it hasn't been enough. The program, entitled "Apple's Broken Promises," features Richard Bilton's Panorama team going undercover in China and Indonesia to learn how workers are treated by Apple's suppliers.
Decades of fascinating and enlightening documentary work by filmmaker Ken Burns form the core of his self-titled app, which draws on close to four hours of footage compiled from documentaries covering a huge breadth of material relating to American history. While we’d have liked to have some longer clips included, careful, almost meticulous design and curation underpins everything. Only the 13-scene, 31-minute innovation playlist is available free, though; the rest of the videos and the other five playlists are locked behind a $9.99 in-app purchase.
