Welcome to iMore ... Peter Cohen!

Forget iOS 7, it's Hollywood Super suits that need a texture intervention

While many people are no doubt ecstatic that newly appointed head of all human interface at Apple, Jon Ive, is reportedly walking through iOS 7 with a sandblaster, stripping out overly heavy skins and skeuomorphic design elements, one look at the newly released Man of Steel publicity photo above makes me think it's really Hollywood that needs its texture fetish dialed way back.

Saga 12 and the story of the four failures

Recently a story on Image Comics claimed Apple's App Store "banned" a comic book, Saga 12, from a comic book app, Comics by comiXology, for content reasons. An uproar followed that story so closely that it actually seemed to overtake it at times. The original story turned out to be incorrect. According to comiXology, they assumed Apple would have a problem with the content and so decided on their own not to release it. They were wrong. Apple was fine with it. They subsequently released it. Though the original story still hasn't been updated to reflect any of that, a new story has been posted on Image Comics addressing the matter. So what does this all tell us?

Editor's desk: Big Apple Apple

I've been in New York City all week at the temporary Mobile Nations HQ working on some amazing stuff. We're not finished yet, which means I can't announce it yet, but I also can't wait to tell you all about it. In the meantime, here's some catch-up on the CrackBerry party, the Facebook event, and what Apple's up to with iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s...

Apple’s challenges in China, and what investors need to know

In the not-so-distant past, Tim Cook has been quoted as saying he expects China to emerge as the company’s largest source of revenue. Back in January, we discussed this growth in China, along with Asymco.com’s estimate that China would overtake US sales at Apple by 2016.

Has anything changed?

Whatever happened to Siri Eyes Free?

Ten months ago at WWDC 2012 Apple introduced Siri Eyes Free for integrating Siri voice interactivity with automobiles. On the screen behind Scott Forstall were the logos of nine auto manufacturers: Audi, BMW, Chrysler, GM, Honda, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes, and Toyota. To date, only one manufacturer has delivered: GM. They committed in November to integrating Siri into the youth-oriented Chevrolet Sonic and Spark, demoed the integration at CES 2013, and cars equipped with the feature finally started rolling off the assembly line in Michigan last month. Chevy has already started advertising Siri Eyes Free integration for the Sonic on television across the United States.

Editor's desk: NYC -- and BlackBerry -- bound

I'm sitting at the gate waiting for my flight to New York City where I'll be working with Kevin Michaluk, David Lundblad, and the Mobile Nations team on a bunch of really cool stuff we're hoping to tell you, and everyone, about really soon. I'll also be attending the NYC CrackBerry party, where the CB team will be celebrating the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 and the new CrackBerry redesign, maybe in that order.

Facebook's new home on Android

Next Thursday our own Phil Nickinson will be heading over to Facebook's third event of 2013, and their first that promises to be focused on mobile. Perhaps even disruptive to mobile. Phil has questions about the Facebook Android event, important ones, and rightly so. I have no answers, but I do have this.

Thank you Chris Oldroyd!

Chris Oldroyd joined iMore in October of 2010, coming to us from a place in the UK that looked more like old BBC dramas than the hustle-and-bustle of modern-day London. Since then he's been getting up at the break of dawn -- Eastern Time, I think that translates into sometime after elevensies, UK time -- and posting whatever interesting news, apps, or accessories had come across the wire over night. (Literally -- his internet was so bad for so long we had to string an actual wire to his castle.)

Funny, classy, and the soul of stability, Chris has made iMore a better, more enjoyable, and more memorable place ever since. And, sadly, tomorrow will be his last day with us. Chris' work and his family has gotten to the point where they need his attention more than we do, and gentleman that he is he knows where his priorities lie.

We'll miss Chris. I'll miss Chris.

For everything you've done for us, and for everything you mean to us, thank you and farewell!

Going forward, you can still follow and reach Chris via @chrisoldroyd. Be sure to tease him about his football soccer picks!
