Around the world

Do you remember these words?

"This is a day I’ve been looking forward to for two-and-a-half years. Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. ... Apple’s been very fortunate. It’s been able to introduce a few of these into the world. ...

In 2007 the iPhone started its way around the world and its name is still a synonym for a mobile device. Best build quality, easiest way to use it, and the highest prices which sadden many people.

See what an iPhone costs in different countries based on currency exchange rates of November 2, 2016.

🇺🇸 USD 749,00
🇹🇭 USD 871,10 30,500 THB Thailand
🇨🇳 USD 914,80 6,188 CNY China
🇦🇺 USD 938,96 1,229 AUD Australia
🇩🇪 USD 963,20 869,00 EUR Germany

Btw, the 7 Plus with 128 GB costs 1009€ in Germany that's about 1083$. So Germans mustn't wait for the 8 to pay an unbefuckinglievable high price.

Well, if you visit the USA you should reserve an appropriate amount of your vacation savings for Steve's masterpiece. But don't forget, Apple Maps won't show you a way through customs declaration.

Note
The app CURRENCY by Jeffrey Grossman with its support for the Apple Watch is a perfect travel companion. You can easily enter a value in the foreign currency and see the converted value in the currency of your home country.

Thanks for reading.

@AppStore

Another nice update description from Europe's #1 (regarding customer relationships and satisfaction) car rental company SIXT.

Usually we find quite useless descriptions like
General bug fixes and stability improvements
which are neither informative nor funny.

The worst descriptions I regularly read are

This week we care about the inner beauty.
(Microsoft)

or

To make our app better for you we bring updates
to the App Store regularly.
(Facebook)

or other useless information or simply ad.

This is a point where Apple should update their developer guidelines. Customers like useful information.

Better safe than sorry?

There is another flaw which makes me crazy.
A lot of times I get a message about an updated app although it was already updated. Developers still think "Two are better than one"?

I strongly hope that they do not follow this saying when implementing bugs into their code.

Thanks for reading.

Next Generation

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Most probably you look at the image with a chuckle. That was intended while creating this collage. But it should also rise some questions.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder of the neurodevelopmental type. It is characterized by problems paying attention, excessive activity, or difficulty controlling behavior which is not appropriate for a person's age.

Definitely not the right way to solve the problem is to separate the normal people from the addicts like the city of Chongqing in China reportedly did when setting up the country's first sidewalk for 'mobile phone addicts', with a lane specifically dedicated to those glued to their screens.

Do we really need a constant information radiation?

Do you know that mobiles can be powered off? Regarding the usage in cars it can save lives.

Chris Anderson's take ...

“My kids accuse me and my wife of being fascists and overly concerned about tech, and they say that none of their friends have the same rules… That’s because we have seen the dangers of technology firsthand. I’ve seen it in myself, I don’t want to see that happen to my kids.”

If you are an Apple enthusiast as well as a proud mother or father think twice what the right time for your kids is to make one of these awesome Cupertino Machines a daily companion.

Mobile devices are on the way to take control of our daily life in a way that we listen to the device and more often forget those humans around us.

Thanks for smiling.

iOS 10
An OS running in compatibility mode

See this concept map (created with the app INSPIRATION on an iPhone 6S Plus) which shows all iOS versions in relation to all iPhone models on which they can be installed.

It started with compatibility to 2 models. Since iOS 6 the installation on the actual model and 3 predecessors is supported. With iOS 7 and 8 Apple's mobile OS is ready to install on 5 models. iOS 10 now supports 7 iPhone iterations and these iPad models: iPad Pro 12.9", iPad Pro 9.7", iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4th gen, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2.

Some people argue that less fragmentation isn't as important as Apple officials tell us on the company's yearly events. Well, stats about iPhone device share (Localytica, 2016) tell us that usually more than 60% of iOS users are on older devices (with a higher percentage for the iPad) but like to benefit from improved OS versions. This is proofed by extremely high adoption rates (more than 80%).

Alan Kay is one of the key people who have shaped the way we are using computers today. He can be seen as the key scientist behind the graphical user interface and the object-oriented programming. Regarding Apple's success the most important thing Steve Jobs overtook from Alan Kay was the belief that

People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.

Jobs made it to one of the core principles of Apple.

Less fragmentation is just one of the benefits Apple brings to its customers and it's possible because they build both, hardware and software. Customers love the durability of their iPhones giving them an extraordinary resale value. Beside customers thousands of happy developers can see their apps running on old iPhone young timers, a not to be underestimated economic factor.

Of course not all features of updated operating systems are available for older devices. 3D-Touch for example needs a new touch screen technology.

Anyway ...

"There is a huge difference between market share of units and usage share. We’re about selling the best and having the best experience and having the happiest customers. Happy generally means using more."
(Tim Cook)

Do you get the "Cult Of Mac" email deal emails?

I do and I bought some stuff from one--- One was a training series. I got the link right away for that.

For the cables I bought I got the wrong item and I got a non-answer from the customer service complaint I sent too and haven't heard back.

I would recommend you not buy physical items from any of these emails--- They are simply sending out sales emails for other companies selling stuff and making an affiliate fee for each sale to us. It's been two weeks and I've yet to get any kind of satisfactory response.

That's the last time I'll buy anything from any of their promotions.
