Editors’ Choice

28 03 2017

What a misleading cachet in many cases.

Here’s a short note to Phil Schiller @Apple.com:

Dear Phil,
you should choose your editors carefully.

The app I’m talking about is just one of many examples and let me think that “Editors’ Choice” is a sign you can acquire by purchase.

F1 is expensive, full of bugs, useless on the Apple Watch, promised great features which are definitely embryonic and it’s without any helpful support.

Thanks for reading and
be careful when you see “Editors’ Choice”.

Good bye, Formula One Digital Media Ltd.

I’m a German, a F1 fan and I love Italy so I have to post this image with my comment.

If you don’t finish first
you should better leave Italy.

Thankfully Seb did it.





Well done

The iPhone is a shining example for the success of consistent further development. As we can see, people like GOOD devices not semi-innovative eye catchers.

The first iPhone and iPad were shining examples of high level innovation, an ocean boiling new kind of device whereas follow-ups could be described with the words of Apple’s leader Tim Cook:

Some people see innovation as change, but we have never really seen it like that. It’s making things better.

People who think Apple lost its ability to innovate should anticipate that innovation takes time. It’s a PROCESS not a BANG (literally speaking when thinking about Samsung’s Note 7 disaster).

Oh, I forgot to say that your works are not only good but eye catchers as well. Sorry, Sir Jonathan.

Thanks.

He wasn’t the CEO Microsoft needed in the transition phase from desktops to mobiles.

But he was a good entertainer and one of the most colorful figures of the Silicon Valley.

Thanks Steve for some great moments.
Check out the video “… laughing at iPhone”.

Well, Steve, hindsight is always 20/20.





There is an app for that

There are three constants in modern life:

Death, Taxes, and iPhone Rumors

Rumors are often exciting news for people following the Cupertino-based tech titan. But at the end of the day only facts count.

As the leading industrial nation the USA developed rules for financial reports which are basically overtaken by other countries (even Germany, the country which is well-known for it’s very special and complex legislation not really understood by normal people). The responsible commission in the USA is the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission). 
The laws and rules that govern the securities industry not only in the United States but also in all other industrialized countries derive from a simple and straightforward concept:

All investors, whether large institutions or private individuals, should have access to certain basic facts about an investment prior to buying it, and so long as they hold it.

To achieve this, the SEC requires public companies to disclose meaningful financial and other information to the public.

You aren’t an investor?

That doesn’t matter. Apple’s SEC filings are most often a good reading. Many filings are quite long, others without interesting information. So it’s good to know about some nomenclature for your personal information filter.

iPhoneography

19 03 2017

It was 42C / 108F when I took this photo with my iPhone 6S Plus.

Well done iPhone. Shortly before I took the photo my device stopped working but came back to life after removing Apple’s Silicon Case which seems to hamper heat dissipation.

About the image
Wat Phra That Phanom is the sacred precinct of the Phra That Phanom chedi, located in the Nakhon Phanom Province, Thailand. According to legend, this structure contains The Buddha’s breast bone, and as such, it is one of the most important Theravada Buddhist structures in the region.

Thanks for 🏄 by.





A home-made ruler

18 03 2017

If you need the measurements of a small object but your only companion is your smartphone you might remember Apple’s slogan “There’s an app for that. That’s the iPhone. Solving life’s dilemma one app at a time.“. With millions of more or less powerful little helpers replete with useless ad you’ll always find for free what you are looking for.

But wait a second.
You can do it yourself.

1 In the Internet look for an image of a ruler which at least shows up to 122 mm.

2 Open the app PHOTOS and rotate the ruler in a vertical position. Crop the image so that the ruler shows 0 mm to 122 mm for a Plus model or 0 mm to 104 mm for the 4.7″ model.

3 Zoom it so that it exactly fits into your screen.

4 Take a screenshot. It’s your ruler and you didn’t write any line of code to make it work.

Ta-da.

If you are the proud mother or father of children facebooking the whole day, ask them how to measure objects without a specialized app. I hope they’ll find a solution otherwise it could become difficult for you to raise interest for being creative instead of consuming facebooks.

Note
Well Steve, not all dilemmas can be solved with an app.

Thanks for reading.
