Will the Apple Watch sell more and faster than the Apple TV? Than the iPad? While financial analysts and tech pundits everywhere race to make headlines with their — what's the word for "prediction" when it's pulled from nowhere? — there's a lot of interesting things to consider. Only people with iPhones will be able to use the watch initially, but those with iPhones could get considerable value from it. What does that mean?
Every once and a while, I guess to remind us of the virtue of the App Store, someone goes and installs the top 10 Windows apps from a popular download site and then sits back and watches their machine explode.
MCE 2015 will be taking place from February 5-6 at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, Poland. Focusing this year on "mobile with a human touch", MCE will offer a multi-track conference aimed at designers, developers, and tech leaders.
I remember visiting my father at IBM and watching the massive doors open so they could wheel out the tray of punchcards. I remember going shopping for an Apple II Plus and staring at the glowing green letters across its monochrome display. I remember visiting my father at LGS, and grabbing the mouse on the LISA sitting on the desk next to his, and dragging everything I could into the pictorial representation of a trash can. I remember picking up the iPhone, tapping the Photos icon, and swiping and pinching my through images as though they were real objects beneath my fingers. I remember holding down the Home button and telling Siri to play my music, and smiling a moment later when it did just that. The history of computing is the history of human's interfacing with them, and in his latest video, Dave WIskus shows how we got from there to here, and more importantly — why.
We're doing CESlive again this year — broadcasting from South Hall every day for the next 4 days. Serenity, Georgia, Anthony, and I will also be bringing you everything that's cool and interesting and Apple-related that we can find. I'll be kicking off the live show tomorrow at 11am PST with Adam, but the stage construction and media events got started tonight. Check out our video sneak-preview above, and keep it locked to iMore for all the action!
Just like some developers never considered design when creating their apps, many still don't consider marketing. Build it and, thanks to Apple, people will come has been a long held, long problematic assumption. The truth is, you need a great idea, amazing code, superb design, and a terrific marketing plan to succeed.
A couple of weeks ago our own Serenity Caldwell sat down with Myke Hurley on the Inquisitive podcast to chat about her time at Macworld, her new gig here at iMore, and her high impact past-time, roller derby. There's a ton of behind-the-scenes info, so if you're curious about how all this Apple media stuff works, or about who Serenity is, where she comes from, and what she does, give it a listen!
First things first: Left-side Dock, forever. I know there are some people who prefer having their Dock along the bottom of the screen, but when you're rocking an 11-inch Air, a bottom Dock takes up valuable screen space.
And to borrow from the Doctor: side Docks are cool.
