Well done, Mr. Cook.

18 08 2017

As a German I know a lot about that horrible time in Germany. This mindset is unacceptable and people all over the world – including the POTUS and his Breitbart journalist Bannon – should have learned to stand up if something happens like this.

There is no place other than the jail for people who still hate others for what reason soever.

Dr. Martin Luther King once said

$1,000 for the 8?

17 08 2017

Barclays says

Nobody wants to buy a $1,000 iPhone.

But if I go to the German Apple Store the company offers the 7 Plus with 128GB, Black for €1,009. That converts to about $1,191 (1€ = 1.18$) and it's selling fine.

Let's see.
We'll know it in January 2018 when Apple files its quarterly report (Oct-Dec) to the SEC.

To avoid any Copyright infringement I made the 8 myself in Apple's iWork app Keynote just with a picture and black frames.

Environment or ROI

Dumping prices kill both

Both should be possible with the right business philosophy. But it's not to be had for nothing.

"Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth… these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all."

(Ban Ki-moon)

Some details about the environmental initiatives of two leading tech companies, Apple and Microsoft.

You miss Samsung and Foxxconn?
Me too. Their presence is quite embryonic.

iPhone Shooting

Discover how to take stunning photos with your iPhone on an excellent website mentioned below.

But be careful when you take photos of small dragons like the Tokay Gecko. I caught him after he tried to break into our bedroom. He’s able to bite off a piece of your finger.

Apples and Batteries

10 08 2017

Watch out! Your FP-Sensor doesn't like it.

The battery of the iPhone 5S has an electric charge of 1510 mAh (1.51 Coulomb) and works on 3.8 volts. So the electrical energy stored in the battery is

1.51 A x 3,600 sec x 3.8 V = 20,656.8 J

that means approximately 21 kJ (kilo Joule).

One Joule in everyday life approximately represents the energy required to lift a small apple (with a mass of 100g) vertically through one meter or the kinetic energy released when that same apple falls one meter to the ground.

So your fully charged iPhone approximately offers the energy released when 21,000 apples fall one meter to the ground.

If you don't like s falling to the ground take chocolate bars.

Hey, for your kids …

The 7 has a 1,960 mAh battery.
How many apples?

Bon appétit!





iPhone Cameras

9 08 2017

Are you waiting for Tim Cook on stage this fall?

Well, maybe you don't wait for the next iterations of Steve's masterpiece (allegedly the 7s, 7s Plus, and the 8) but for a good price for some predecessors, the

iPhone 7/7 Plus 6s/6s Plus SE

with great cameras.

Resolution …

All these models have 12-megapixel rear cameras, but there is a meaningful difference in the front-facing camera resolution. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a sharp 7-megapixel camera; the 6S and 6S Plus have a decent 5-megapixels; the iPhone SE can only offer a grainy 1.2-megapixel selfie experience.

Aperture …

Apple followed an industry trend and made the rear-facing camera aperture larger (iPhone 7/7 Plus f/1.8 and iPhone 6s/6s Plus/SE f/2.2). The larger aperture means more light can get to the imaging sensor, for better captures in different levels of light.

Optical Image Stabilization …

OIS technology keeps your captures still even when your hands are shaky. It's fairly common in Android phones, but as far as iPhones go, it's only found in the 6S Plus and the series 7 phones.

Optical Zoom …

Only the iPhone 7 Plus has a dual-lens camera with optical zoom and improved digital zoom. It lets you take sharper pictures, from farther away. The rest of the iPhones, like most smartphones, are restricted to digital zoom only (which is really just a type of image cropping).

Flash Type …

The flash on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has been updated from a dual LED to a quad LED. The newer flash does seem to improve tonal range and decrease unwanted contrast.

My recommendation …
if you're still on a 4S, 5, or 5S

Buy a 7 Plus and take a lot of great shots.

I don't buy a new device because I disagree with

"It’s easy. Just trade in your eligible smartphone, and then use the credit to lower the full cost of a new iPhone or to reduce the monthly payments with your carrier."

(Apple on iphone/trade-up)

What's your take Lisa Jackson as the VP of Environment at Apple Inc?

My 6S Plus makes great shots, right?

No need to let the mining machines in the Democratic Republic of Congo go for Tantalite for a new device.
