Interesting usage of capital spend to forecast iOS device shipments. Horace always has lots of graphs!!!
Of the $42.5 billion Apple spend buying capital assets ((Includes land and buildings $5.6b, Machinery, equipment and internal-use software $32.1b and Leasehold Improvements $4.7b)) more than half w...

Not news to those who listen to Rob's podcast, but this article does cite three specific apps (one with a million downloads) to watch out for.

Camera+ app for free for iOS8 users. If you go to the Apple Store App (not the App Store, but the actual Apple Store App), select stores and scroll to the Camera+ icon, if you click on it, it has a code to redeem through the regular App Store to get the app for free. Doesn't seem to work on iPad (tried it), and doesn't work on iOS7 (tried it). I've heard a lot of good commentary about this app, but have not used it much yet.

Horace analyzes the "software eating the world" theory against the world of apparel, with an interesting chart on apparel spending per capita versus the cost of an iPhone + 2yr contract
If software can be injected into an industry's product it will bend to the will of the software writers. This theory expands on Marc Andreessen's observation that "software is eating the world". Th...

I've given away apps a couple of times on TII episodes. We're about to release a new version of our Grand Canyon app, and will soon have an app on Yucatan.

I'm looking for beta testers, not only to test the apps, but because I need a higher volume of users for an article I'm writing on TestFlight, Apple's recently acquired app for doing betas. I've used TestFlight since long before Apple purchased them, and use it to beta test my own apps and corporate/Enterprise apps we've written.

Apple's TestFlight only lets beta versions live for 30 days. It is a short commitment, but it is a commitment. If you'd like to test and give feedback, primarily about the app but also about your test flight experience, please click the link below and we'll get you set up.

And thanks +Rob Walch for letting me post this!
We are always releasing new apps, and will be continuously improving our current apps in the app store. Apple has made beta testing easy with their release of the "Test Flight" app. It requires iOS...

This is not new news, but more of the same on smart TVs with voice recognition features. Be sure to turn these features off...unless you are just into letting vendors listen in!

technically that's the same as Siri with Apple.  anything you tell siri is uploaded from your iPhone to Apple's servers.  If they choose to implement a 3rd party service for voice recognition then it would be identical.

Apple says they store your data, but anonymize the user info so they don't know it's you, if you use "Hey SIri" you might accidentally pass on data to Apple Servers.

Recently I disabled the feature as I only planned on using it while I was driving but I still have the bad habit of pressing the home button (my phone is in a car mount).  If I'm playing back a podcast and I say "Hey Siri" and the volume is too loud, Siri generally ignores my request :(

Curse you, +Rob Walch ! Will soon delete this addictive game. To get you back, I will recommend 2048, a logic game.

My poor wife's accidental drop test less that 24 hours after getting her new iPhone6 was a smashing...smash, I guess. ZAGG cover already on the phone, didn't help with the drop except keeping the pieces together. She had ordered a case but it had not come in yet. Apple, as always, was great, backdated purchase of AppleCare so we didn't have to buy two iPhone6 devices. Also, the Apple trade-in for her iPhone5 was the best, got 205 bucks for her 16GB version, paid a good chunk of the iPhone6 64GB....and now with added AppleCare, she has a drop or two left (hopefully not!)

Ouch. I always tell my kids to use cases, but I hate cases on my phones so I tend to go "commando." Of course, I'm paying for the phone.
