You may not be aware that the original iPods and even some of the following generations had hard drives inside of them. Yes, I’m talking about actual RPM spinning hard drives with platters and heads reading and writing from those platters. With this in mind, think about an iPod and try to imagine what kind […]
Whilst Apple is far from a universally adored brand, nobody can argue with the idea that it is one of the most influential corporations of modern times, leading the way in making smartphone technology a staple of everyday life. Whilst Apple’s products can be pricey, they have often set trends popularised new features, devices, and […]
Everybody loves to get Apple products, right? If you buy into Apple’s holiday advertising campaigns, you’d be forgiven for believing that Apple products themselves can produce insane amounts of joy and peace among humankind. But that’s not always the case.
In 2001, the iPod was absolutely revolutionary. Yes, there were other kinds of MP3 players, but the iPod was the first MP3 player that really captured the hearts and minds of the music-loving market. What made the iPod an absolute must-have device? Perhaps it was Apple’s unique marketing campaign. Or maybe it was those immediately […]
It seems reports of the demise of the iPod have been greatly exaggerated. In recent years the iconic music player, which was once Apple’s flagship product, has taken a backseat to the iPhone in terms of sales and popularity. In fact, there has even been speculation at times that the entire iPod line would be eliminated altogether. […]
Now that the Apple Watch and the new MacBook have shipped to customers, the fervor that surrounds new Apple products is likely to die down – at least for a little while. But the Cupertino-based company is far from finished releasing new products this year, that much is certain. From the devices that we know […]
Last week Apple revealed its financial numbers for the holiday quarter, blowing away all estimates and sending a shockwave across Wall Street. In a conference call to investors on Tuesday the company revealed that it had racked up $74.6 billion in sales on its way to pocketing $18 billion in profit, making it the single […]
In terms of high profile lawsuits, they don’t come any stranger than the $350 million antitrust case that was filed against Apple last week. The suit alleges that the Cupertino company used monopolistic tactics to stifle competition for the iPod and the iTunes Music Store, while instituting practices that were detrimental to consumers. Antitrust lawsuits […]
When Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, he found the once-proud tech giant in complete disarray. Over the previous decade, profits had plummeted to the point that the company was operating in the red, and many insiders felt that it had just weeks – perhaps even days – to live. But Jobs had a […]
Tuesday was the grand event that Apple people had been hyping up for some months, and from what you can read all over the place, it seems that the Keynote didn’t live up to the hype. There is the U2 thing, though, which gives you access to their album. Oh, and there’s the scarf guy […]
Editor’s Note: This post was written by Neal Bricker, who writes about new technology for a number of publications and websites. Lots of us love to drive with our favourite music playing along. Not so long ago, this would mean twiddling knobs to find a decent radio station. Then came cars with tape decks in them, and […]
Apple has an assortment of iPods available including the iPod Classic, Nano, Shuffle, and the Touch. These round out the lineup of handheld devices that aren’t iPhones or iPads, but one has to wonder, does Apple really need this many iPod devices? Could Apple narrow its lineup of iPods to only include two models and […]
I’ve seen mentioned a few times lately how investors and critics are concerned that Apple hasn’t introduced a new class of product since before Steve Jobs’ passing. Is this a valid concern? Let’s break down the time between past product announcements to compare.
Anything LEGO tends to make my day brighter, but this recent discovery is hard to beat. Chris McVeigh is a author, illustrator, and photographer based out of Halifax, NS. And he loves engaging in LEGO builds. I guess we can call him an AFOL. He has some pretty eye catching LEGO creations in his web […]
These Apple-themed Christmas trees will get even Android fans into the holiday spirit.
