Toys for Echoes: Thanks MyDL, Apple, Griffin, Angry Birds (my mommy and daddy).

Posted by Echoes in princess echoes , jean dennis , iPod , ipad , Griffin , Apple , angry birds


Who knew a silly post about Angry Birds would get me an Angry Bird (iPad case)? The irony isn't lost on me. Anyhoodle, thank you so much MyDL and sponsors for the very cool bag of tricks I won in MyDL's Major Year-End Blogging Competition.

iOS 5: Alternative way to get it and Jailbreak (Tethered; Any baseband)

Posted by msbodetti in Windows , snowbreeze , redsnow , Mac , iTunes , iPod , iPhone , ipad , ios 5 , Apple


After my last post on the live blog stream of the "Let's talk iPhone" I haven't really had a chance downloading and updating my iPhone to iOS 5.

What really bugged me was the headlines of Apple's servers not being sufficient for the update. Well lets see… Steve passed away (R.I.P), this was a real revelation for the iOS and they were releasing a new iPhone on Friday so obviously it would be swamped.

Although we knew why Steve Jobs left Apple when he did, it was still a shock reading about his death via Twitter and Facebook yesterday.

Apple taking Samsung to court Over similarity's in Products

Posted by msbodetti in Samsung , iPod , iPhone , ipad , Galaxy Tab , Apple


For the last few months, Apple has been in and out of court for the trademarking of the App Store and Microsoft stopping them.  Another big headline that hit Friday morning is that Apple finds that the design and features of Samsungs new mobile phones and tablets too similar to their own.

"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products," that is a summary of Apple's lawsuit against Samsung.

Along with the above statement, there is a list of comparisons between Apple's iDevices and Samsung's mobile phones and now their tablets. Apple says that the exterior design as well as the icon's in Samsung's devices are too similar to their own this includes the music, texting, phone and contacts.

Besides this, Samsung is Apple's supplier for different chips for their iDevices and Macbooks. So I think this will come to a halt.

I have to agree with them though. The Samsung Galaxy S is really nice and even close to the iPhone 4's design. The touch screen is top notch! And yea some of the icons are similar... But it's competition so I dont know if the court will rule in favour of Apple but this slows down the competitors of Apple so this will favour Apple in some way!

The Apple Tree.

Posted by OS GIKEN in Sam Diaz , iPod , iPhone , ipad , At&t , Apple , 4G , 3G , 2G


It shocks me how many news reports and headlines pop up everyday on every tech website reviewing, complaining, lambasting, worshiping Apple. Their fascination with this company is beyond me. Every move made by Apple is scrutinized to the point where we have people like Sam Diaz who calls himself an Apple Guru...yes you read right, there's actually a title for the person who knows more about Apple than Apple Guru.

Sam Diaz

Imagine this, everything a company does, anything, is documented and analyzed for the masses to make an opinion off, remember that an analysis, be it expert or not, is still just someone else's impression on a topic of interest. An analysis of Apple's 3G or 4G is just someone who's qualified in Apple history talking about their experiences on the 3G and 4G issue, not Apple themselves. Its just Sam's rendition of what he thinks is happening, would happen, and won't happen. Unless Apple actually releases a statement to the ever present press, everyone just basically goes with Sam's opinion on the 3G and 4G version of the new iPhone – and Sam thinks its great, so it just has to be right?

Rules of engagement:
But there is a good reason why we can all listen and read Sam's impressions on Apple, because Apple uses a very lean approach to releasing products, or making money as its actually what they do. They will package a product so lean, that when they release a second version you'll want that too...and give your older version to your niece. Anything Apple touches, has to comply with their rules of engagement, you can now listen to music on your Kindle...only if you have the iPod or iPhone, yes. I'm sure in 2130; you'll be able to buy McDonalds, only if you are a registered owner of an iPhone 43G. Rules of engagement

Why are you surprised?
Why are people surprised when 2 versions of the iPhone, iPad and iPod are released? Apple tells you that the technology is not ready yet, it’s been ready for the past 10 years, it just make sense to sell the technology in two different yet the same products. 3G and then 4G, God forbid you bought the 2G. 40Gig then 60Gig and 80Gig. That 80Gig will be followed by a very new iPad with 100Gig if you don't watch out! It astonishes me that people are still surprised at Apple's product offering and packaging, whatever they do, the market will respond positively, and worst of all, the myriad of competition will shamelessly follow and brake patent laws knowingly unknowingly. The IT industry has strived off this version cycle sales-type approach for decades, and its worked!

Apple Loop

Apple Loop:
That's the business model, like everything Apple, cleverly designed to make money, and they are good at it. The Apple loop clearly shows how lock - in strategies are the way to go, "you can get this if you have this" type of mentality. That's only the start of it all; pretty soon, you'll be totally excluded if you DON'T have anything Apple! Apple, basically takes an existing technology, package it so good that you believe its something new! The iPod...nothing new! The touch screen with movement detection...old age! The iPad...seen it all before! But this is where Apple has the magic ball and the Tarot cards and the wizard and the magician and David Blaine on their side, they make all this existing technology available to everyone and anyone, and everyone who's anyone who's not Sam Diaz, will not know that the technology existed, but they'll believe that Apple is innovative and the technology is brand new and Apple had it first and Apple is the best. Simply put –
Apple sleeps with your mother, your father, your sister and your dog, and worst of all…with you if it sees potential market share in mediocre or untapped markets!

You gotta love it:
You have to, no matter who you are, even Sam loves it, you have to love Apple, they take what we know but don't know, and make it available to all of us convincing us and at the same time have us screaming from atop a mountain “we need what they have to offer”, package it so good that they make billions off it, and then just when we get used to the technology, they bombard us with more innovation! I love Apple, I have not a single Apple product in my life, but I've used them all bar the iPad, and I will happily fall into the Apple trap of lock - ins and accompanied technology from a partner etc. But that's just the trick, that's what Apple does, it makes us want what they have, we cannot deny it.

you NEED apple

OS over and out  - pretty soon, the ever popular saying "An Apple a day keeps the doctor away" will have a whole new meaning all together.
