eventful times ahead

It’s been a busy time for Apple in recent months. Prior to its Apple Special Event in late March, it launched a bunch of new hardware, including two new iPads, two new iMacs, and the AirPods 2. Many people were hoping for an iPad mini and that’s what they got — now with more power and Apple Pencil compatibility, but they probably weren’t so psyched up about an iPad carrying the Air branding. It no longer represents the thinnest and lightest of its kind; now it’s the capable, but affordable option. The name doesn’t make sense to me, but sometimes that does seem to be the case with Apple’s naming convention. Speaking of names, this brings me to the actual main event — a riot of new Apple service launches which…

apple rolls out new services

AT A MARCH “Special Event”, Apple finally announced its long-awaited original video subscription service. Confusingly, the service is dubbed “Apple TV Plus”, and it will be delivered through a revamped Apple TV app, both of which are distinct from Apple TV 4K, the media streaming box. Got that? Pricing and availability of the service will be revealed in the fall. The event was all about services, with a few surprises, such as a credit card. We didn’t see that coming. Apple TV+ APPLE TOUTED ITS forthcoming subscription TV service as “the new home for the world’s most creative storytellers,” featuring exclusive original shows, documentaries, and movies from creators including Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Octavia Spencer, J.J. Abrams, Jason Momoa, M. Night Shyamalan, Jon M. Chu and more. Many of…

the shift

WITH APPLE’S FINANCIAL results taking a slight wobble for the first time in years — it only had its second–best Christmas results ever — talk turns to how it can keep growing its money pile in a world that’s reaching smartphone saturation. What’s the next huge product it’s working on? The usual rumored groundbreaking tech stuff (AR glasses, smart cars) is years away. What can it make to maintain its level of growth? I suspect the answer isn’t in new products, but new industries. There’s news about the TV service Apple is building up, but that’s not what you hear the executives talking most excitedly about. In an interview with CNBC in January, Tim Cook said, “If you zoom out into the future, and look back, and you ask the question,…

leter of the month

While my wife and I were travelling to Montreal, Apple pushed the new version of iOS to her iPhone, and in order to restart asked for her password. As she relies almost exclusively on the fingerprint button she couldn’t remember it immediately and the device got blocked. After long hours online providing bank details, and more time on the phone, she got an email saying she’ll receive a phone call in ten days to tell her how to reset her phone. When we got back to the US we went to an Apple store, where they told us they could do nothing more. I understand the need for security, but when I need to reset my bank card PIN, I go to a branch, show official IDs and a few…

1 Fujifilm X-T30 fujifilmusa.com $899 This might just be the perfect travel camera. Inside its reasonably small body, you get a 26–megapixel sensor, extremely high–quality 4K recording, 425–point autofocus for seriously quick shooting, a pin–sharp OLED viewfinder, plus a rear touchscreen. And all this is wrapped up in a metal body that’s full of timeless style (and fits a lot of controls at your fingertips). We tried this camera ahead of its release, and the image quality you get from something you just sling over your shoulder is amazing — this could be one of 2019’s best cameras. 2 Sony Wena sony.com $TBC If you don’t like the look of smartwatches compared to a more traditional timepiece, Sony’s right there with you. The Wena system is a series of smart bands in metal or sporty…
