Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave… even if the new iPhone Maps was the most terrible maps app ever, Steve would have pooh-poohed it and declared it the best map app ever.

re: A Letter from Tim Cook…



…today the iPhone brings in more revenue than the entirety of Microsoft.

No, really.

One Apple product, something that didn’t exist five years ago, has higher sales than everything Microsoft has to offer. More than Windows, Office, Xbox, Bing, Windows Phone, and every other product that Microsoft has created since 1975.

Apple is a cool company, and in line with their user interaction focus (re. innovation) they unveiled the latest edition of SIRI, earlier today.

Here are serious questions I have for SIRI:
Who am I, and where to I live?
What do I like?
How do you know all of this?
Where is that information stored? :-)

Nice to see Microsoft learning from (… and gasp… improving on???) Apple sometimes.  This looks like a fine trinket to own.

Apple’s New Fifth-Avenue Cube Uses Just 15 Giant Sheets of Glass

"Apple, famous for pushing materials to their limits in order to make ridiculously thin and strong gadgets, is doing the same for its flagship Fifth Avenue store in New York City. A remodel of the already perfectly good design will see the amount of glass panels of the iconic cube reduced from 90 panes to just 15."

Apple’s patent could prevent all OEMs from building tablets "Apple gets an injunction against the Galaxy Tab in Europe based on some very generic line drawings…" (ZDNet) 
HUH???  I give Apple a lot of appreciation & credit for driving forward the consumer & mobile electronics in a way that has benefits almost all high tech consumers.  And have always thought of them as an incredibly positive force for creativity & innovation, even if I don’t like (or personally use) some of their “walled garden” products / gadgets / services.  But this kind of thing will turn them into a force that makes the industry much worse, not better.
