Even though Apple’s popular mobile devices, computers and accessories are manufactured in China, one CEO of a leading consumer electronics firm there thinks that Cupertino is “missing a huge opportunity” in the country -- but is thankful for it.
Ruh-roh! If you closely follow the saga of Apple CEO Steve Jobs responding to customers’ e-mail inquiries, you might want to pay attention to this one. It turns out that at least one such exchange on Thursday is a complete fake, according to Apple’s own PR department.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has become the tech equivalent of a magic eight-ball: Instead of shaking it up for the answer you seek, simply fire off an e-mail to the right address and get wisdom thrown down from the mountain. This week the subject is HD video -- specifically uploading it via the iPhone 4 as well as playing it on a Mac.
In the latest Stevemail, Jobs wants iPhone users to be less concerned about the multitasking features and just learn to love them. MacDaily is reporting that in a latest email to a MacDailyNews reader inquiry, Jobs simply replied, "People shouldn't have to understand multitasking. Just use is [sic] as designed, and you'll be happy. No need to ever quit apps."
Of all the people you'd compare Steve Jobs to, surely Leonardo DaVinci is not the first to come to mind. However, that's not a bad comparison because, after all, Jobs is as much of an innovator for the world of technology--especially mobile technology--as DaVinci was during the Renaissance Era.
Softbank CEO, Masayoshi Son, actually made this comparison after becoming entirely smitten with the Apple co-founder's achievements.
"Hundreds of years from now, Leonardo DaVinci and Steve Jobs will be held in the same high regard," he said. "[Jobs] doesn't see his products as just a product. It's as if they are his artwork or something that embodies his very own life."
You’d think after the biggest product launch in Apple’s history, CEO Steve Jobs would take a day or two off, but it appears he’s taken to his keyboard yet again to respond to some e-mail inquiries involving the lack of Wi-Fi sync in iTunes and the missing hold button on the iPhone 4.
Seems hard to believe that the iPhone 3G, the belle of the ball only two short years ago, is getting a half-hearted iOS 4 update this time around. Among the missing features are multitasking (and the screen lock that goes with the menu for same) and Bluetooth keyboard support, along with one that’s baffled many: Wallpaper for your home screen.
We recap yesterday's WWDC keynote announcements. Susie and Robbie talk about the pretty Retina Display screen and FaceTime. We even discuss the many face-related names they mistakenly referred to the feature as.
We get excited about the rebranding of the iPhone OS to iOS. Finally we'll be able to talk about the iPod touch without name dropping the iPhone every five seconds.
No doubt about it, being an iOS developer is sometimes tough. Take for instance the tale of two Sanford University grad students who created a popular, up-and-coming news reader which even caught the eye of Steve Jobs, only to have their app removed later that day.
