Copying

Blazing trails is hard work. Following them is easy. Whether you're an explorer, twin machetes in hand, hacking your way through the densest of underbrush, a developer launching a breakthrough app into a crowded app store, or a consumer electronics giant, packaging existing technologies in a way that finally makes them exciting and accessible to the mainstream, it can cost a fortune and take a tremendous amount of time and effort to bring a winning product to market.

And relatively little to copy it.

Wake N Shake for iPhone -- the evil alarm clock that's guaranteed to get you out of bed each morning

Wake N Shake for iPhone is the alarm clock for people like me -- those who hit snooze about 5 times before actually getting out of bed. We are so addicted to our precious snooze button, that we set our alarm early in anticipation of the fact that we'll be hitting snooze for at least a half hour. With Wake N Shake for iPhone, those days are over. This alarm clock requires you to rigorously shake your iPhone to turn it off. By the time you've shaken your iPhone enough to turn off the alarm, you'll be more than ready to get out of bed (and in need of a shower!).

Why Apple won't be ditching the Home button any time soon

It comes up every now and then -- "Apple should ditch the Home button!" on the iPhone or iPad. There have been rumors of it happening, there've been false-alarms of it happening. With the recent launch of the Google Nexus 7, which doesn't have a Home button, we've been getting even more questions about it happening. But it's not happening. Not with the iPhone 5. Not with the iPad mini. Not any time soon.

MobileMe: 2008 to 2012. Or, the deconstruction of failed sync

This is how MobileMe ends, swallowed in iCloud but not in darkness.

Our information and documents will live on -- the stored and pushed and streamed content of our iPhones and iPads and Macs, unto the next generation.

Apple has created the service we would have wished for MobileMe.

And now its servers spin down for the last time.

(With apologies to J. Michael Straczynski)

Apple may split its stock and become a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average -- but it doesn’t matter

There’s an interesting story over at Businessweek talking about the possibility of Apple splitting its stock price, and possibly even earning a coveted spot as one of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). This is all due to a research piece that Toni Sacconaghi, the Apple analyst at Bernstein, published recently.

The gist of the story? Sacconaghi makes the interesting point that Apple is the only dividend-paying company with a market cap over $215 billion that isn’t included in the Dow. But if it were included in the index, its would command a large weighting. This is because the DJIA uses stock price as the weighting mechanism. The solution is for Apple to split its stock in order to improve its chances of being added to the index.

Other technology companies in the index include Cisco, Microsoft, HP, IBM and Intel. Given that Apple is not only the largest company in the world (by market cap), shouldn't it be included?
