with the iPhone on pole

Alan Kay is one of the key people who have shaped the way we are using computers today. He can be seen as the key scientist behind the graphical user interface and the object-oriented programming. Regarding Apple’s success the most important thing Steve Jobs overtook from Alan Kay was the belief that

People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.

Jobs made it to one of the core principles of Apple.

And here’s the result.
Again the iPhone beats its competitors.

Thanks for stopping by.

iPhone’s Camera

iPhone’s Camera …
a shining example for silent innovation

I took this shot with my iPhone 6S Plus in Ban Dong Pong, a small village near Khon Kaen, Thailand, where I retired last year. It shows an ISUZU truck for carrying rice harvesting machines (or Apple’s iCar to keep project Titan top secret?).

The problem with too much megapixels

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus came with 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras, a major improvement over the 8-megapixel cameras from recent years.

Images now pack 50% more pixels than before so you can see more details, and you also get 50% more “focus pixels” than in the previous iPhones for faster auto-focus.

Cameras with more megapixels usually sacrifice image quality in certain ways. Normally when you pack so many pixels so close together, it creates artifacts called “crosstalk”: inaccurate colors and noise in your images.

Apple’s team worked on new techniques to maintain image quality and size despite the extra megapixels, including a technology called deep-trench isolation, which separates photo diodes and helps to maintain accurate, precise colors.

Apple, can you do this?

9 04 2017

No hardware buttons just a screen.
Apple, can you do this until fall 2017?

Technically it should be possible and waterproofing isn’t a point to discuss any longer.

I’m sure it’s also Sir Jonathan’s dream.
He likes simplicity and an aesthetic clean concept.

Thanks for visiting iNotes4You.

Well Lewis

8 04 2017

again you did a great job in Shanghai.It seems to me that you’re quite happy with your iThing.

I’m a bit envious.
You are operating the best c-technology from the guys of Mercedes and the best e-technology from the guys of Apple.

Sadly there is no option for you to get both hardware pieces from just one hand. You won’t get a car from Apple nor a mobile phone from Mercedes.

Have fun.
Wish you all the best for today’s F1 GP.

An ancient design masterpiece

6 04 2017

“I’ll be back”

is a catchphrase associated with Arnold Schwarzenegger, which he first used in his role as the title character from the science fiction film The Terminator.

Now it’s time to get back an iPhone fully made of glass like the iPhone 4, a design masterpiece first launched in 2010 with the slogan “This changes everything. Again.”

Are you also excited to see an anniversary model with a glass backside which changes everything one more time in that it supports wireless charging?

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.

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.
