Camera Shootout 6s vs 8

22 02 2018

Should I upgrade for the camera?

I own an iPhone 6s Plus and agree to a comparison of the cameras of a 6s and the 8 published in an article on businessinsider.

No need to upgrade.

See the shot I took this morning in Leverkusen, Germany. It shows bamboo and ice. Isn’t it of high quality?

Death, Taxes, iPhone Rumors

19 02 2018

are the three constants in modern life.

And there’s more we all can recognize.
So-called “News” about upcoming iThings are clickbaits. Bloggers around the world do follow all spasmodic coughs of so-called analysts. In some cases they’re right but in all cases we can realize that there intention is just getting attentionclicks money.

What are the benefits of knowing details about devices months before they are presented at Steve Jobs’ Theater or elsewhere? None. But …

Apple enjoys a cult-like following for its platforms, especially following the massive increase in popularity for the brand brought about by the huge increase in sales for all its products that started around the time the company introduced the original iPod in late 2001. The mass usage of computing devices in everyday life, mixed with Apple’s vertical integration of its products, has helped to bring about this increase in popularity, and combined with a tight-lipped corporate policy about future products, helped foster an interest in the company’s activities. So it’s not an unhappy love affair between Apple and fortune tellers.

Let me put you out of your misery. Here are the latest tokens from the rumor mill.

  • Apple to release iOS 51 on June 29, 2057, iPhones 50th birthday
  • iPad 48’s WiFi gets the Multi-Media Tech Award from North-Korean Government
  • Apple’s iPad Smart Cover now available in XXXL covering up to 4 devices with your Apple IDs, passwords, fingerprint, and face engraved
  • Ming – Chi Kuo Jr. seem to confirm that iPad 34 will sport a nuclear reactor replacing the Li-Ion Dino manufactured and assembled in North Korea
  • Craig (@HairForceOne) Federighi, Maestro of Bits and Bytes, filed a lawsuit against his coiffeur for copying and selling his hairdo to an AR app developer
  • Apple is starting the production of its most anticipated neural engine for humans; its massively criticized because of complete incompatibility with Android engines already working in 85% of all human beings
  • Apple now offers Apple Health Care to cover accidents caused by AR distraction

Oh, I nearly forgot that hackneyed saying:

Apple didn’t immediately respond to requests for comments.

See you.

In their book Psychology of Rumor, Allport and Postman (1947) formulated the basic law of rumor, in which the strength of the rumor (R) is linked to the importance (i) and to the degree of ambiguity (a) of the topic, such that: R ≈ i × a. Regarding Apple i represents the highest possible value in the tech industry and a the many features consumers like to have but Apple doesn’t deliver.

Apple @ India

17 02 2018

A relationship which should be improved.

Apple came to India in 2008. In May 2016 Tim Cook visited India for the first time as the head of Apple and met India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Why? Well, India is the 2nd largest country in the world (by population) but Apple’s footprint is near to be insectile. In April 2017 iPhone production started in India. The company has partnered with Taiwanese WISTRON to assemble iPhones in Bangalore often referred to as the Silicon Valley of India.

India is one of the fastest growing smartphone markets in the world and has become a sweet spot as the company is facing headwinds in China.

Consumers in India need affordable phones, but Apple’s iThings are all premium.

Most smartphones sold in the country are priced around or under $150, with only a fraction of the country’s billion-plus citizens able to afford an iPhone (about 3% market share as of Oct 2017 / statista com).

Additionally there are some barriers to break down.

Tim Cook’s efforts are to abide by Narendra Modi-led government’s „Make in India“ program.

Microsoft Edge for iOS

9 02 2018

Another highlight from Redmond

Microsoft’s browser EDGE made for Windows 10 is now available for iOS. And it’s fast, easy to use, and gives a continuous browsing experience from your iPhone to your Windows 10 PC (which in my opinion is still better than a Mac).

“Your stuff syncs in the background, allowing you to browse across devices, without skipping a beat.”

After opening a website on my iPhone I can easily open Edge on my Surface and display the site. That works pretty smooth. Using Google+ is also much better than with Chrome. It’s way faster and lets you return exactly to the point where you left the post stream.

If you ask me personally I would say it‘s way better than Google Chrome for iOS.

Imagination, Megapixels, and Sophisticated Image Processing

5 02 2018

I took this picture in 2010 with an iPhone 3GS (Slogan: „The fastest, smartest phone yet.” / iPhone OS 3.x / 3MP camera with video (VGA at 30 fps), photo and video geotagging) in Ban Dong Phong, a small village near Khon Kaen, Thailand.

It shows the fishnet of my spouse’s father. A great man working hard for the family during his whole life.

People might say that the quality of my image is poor but in my opinion it’s not the quality of an image but the related imagination which provokes the emotion you are looking for when viewing images. A lack in image quality will be compensated by a considerable increase in imagination.

But this all doesn’t mean that I’m unhappy with the consistent further development of the iPhone’s camera technology from my 3GS to my 6s Plus I currently own.

Don’t worry, be happy, Samsung

29 01 2018

Rumor has it that Apple may release three new iPhones in 2018. Two of them – the suspected 5.8-inch flagship and it’s 6.5-inch Plus-size counterpart – are said to feature OLED screens.

Demand for Organic Light-Emitting Diodes is so high that Samsung considered opening a new manufacturing plant to process Apple’s order, the report said, but has been able to manufacture enough of the panels to fill Apple’s order.

All that glitters is not gold.

There are lots of disadvantages coming with OLED displays (Lifespan, Color balance, Efficiency of blue OLEDs, Water damage, Outdoor performance, Power Consumption). Not to forget the horrendous price. My eyes are old but even younger eyes can live with Retina LCDs in iPhones which are about $100 cheaper.

Emojis, Animojis, Hamojis

28 01 2018

Did you know that 44 likes iPhones?

But there’s more. Since years the world was looking for these little cute images of the Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton.

“There is an app for that.”

Lewis Hamilton’s official Hamoji app gives you access to over 200+ new & exclusive emoji, stickers and expressions, all handpicked by Lewis Hamilton himself.

And yes stats tell us that Apple’s App Store offers 2.2 million apps (as of March 2017). Sadly too many of them are as useless codings as Hamoji.

Btw, I can’t recommend this app.
I mean, you have to pay for this bullshit.
Better invest in a 44-Case to protect your iThing.

One last thing …

Developers, please make the world happy with Tanimojis animating Donald Trump when explaining alternate facts to the world.

Thanks for visiting iNotes4You.
