Global Accessibility Awareness Day and what you should know!

It's Global Awareness Accessibility Day — #GAAD — and that matters to everyone.

Accessibility and inclusivity are often thought of as helping people with visual, auditory, or physical challenges, learning challenges, are on the Autistic spectrum, or otherwise need assistance beyond what technology normally supplies. The truth is, making products accessible and inclusive, the way Apple does, makes them easier to use and better for everyone. It lets people young and old, novice and expert, use an iPhone or iPad or Apple Watch, and use it well. For those with challenges, however, it's not just about access, it's about empowerment. It can improve their lives and let them travel, communicate, and interact in ways never before possible. #GAAD is about getting the word out, so everyone can help, and everyone can benefit.

Following the launch of the iPhone it went from being dismissed as a toy to being targeted for extinction to being copied for relevance.

Bentley 'Savile Row and America' documentary shot on iPhone

Bentley, the renowned automobile manufacturer, is the latest vendor to shoot a short film entirely on an iPhone.

It's not cars that were filmed with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, however, but rather clothing. Specifically, in honor of the Savile Row and America: A Sartorial Special Relationship, which takes place this week at the British Ambassador's residence in Washington, D.C., Bentley Motors commissioned custom driving jackets from the four Savile Row houses. And then director Austin Reza took the iPhones, an app called FiLMic Pro, and a lot of talent, and made magic.

#TBT in the age of iCloud Photo Library

ThrowBackThursday is an internet meme where, on Thursdays, you post a photo of yourself from an earlier part of your life.

Now, with iCloud Photo Library, if you're doing a #TBT on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter from your iPhone, you're no longer limited to the photos in your camera roll or those you've laboriously synced over from your personal computer. You have access to all the photos you've taken, ever, from every device you have connected to iCloud — including your potentially massive, historic Photos for OS X library.

Apple's FaceTime is end-to-end encrypted. Google Hangouts... isn't

Lack of end-to-end-encryption means that conversations on Hangouts, if subject to a legal order, can be wiretapped or otherwise surveilled.

Google hadn't disclosed this information until a recent Reddit AMA (ask me anything) and a Vice follow-up that resulted. It's not clear whether Google has been asked to provide access to Hangouts, but the potential is there.

Apple and the importance of customer service

When you buy a product you're also buying the company that makes it.

Sales, gimmicks, ads, all pale to insignificance compared to how they treat you, the customer, in the days, weeks, months, and years following your purchase. It's something that needs to be considered part of the overall value and as part of the overall decision.
