rumors of an october ruturn for the macbook

BOTH APPLE AND GOOGLE COULD BE MAKING WAVES The holiday season starts officially at the end of Thanksgiving, but for fans of Apple and tech products in general, September and October can often feel like Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa and New Years’ Eve all rolled into one – and there are certainly plenty of rumors flying around. Apple launched its iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and Apple Watch Series 4 at its grand event in September, but as of early October, it is Google taking the stage with offerings for the holidays – at least at first. GOOGLE HITS CENTRE STAGE As Apple Magazine headed for publication, the search giant was just hours away from the almost-certain launch of its latest Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices, complete with expanded specs and…

google brings camera twists, bigger screens to pixel phones

Google’s new Pixel phones mirror an industry trend toward lusher, bigger screens and add twists on the camera for better pictures. The third generation of Pixel phones unveiled Tuesday at an event in New York features screens that span from one edge to another. It’s the first time Google has embraced the format, which Samsung has had for a few years and Apple adopted last year. But Google is undercutting Apple on price. The Pixel 3 will be available Oct. 18 starting at $799 — $200 below the least expensive iPhone XS. A larger version, the Pixel 3 XL, costs $100 more. Google is also hiring photographer Annie Leibovitz to take pictures with the new Pixel in an effort to persuade consumers that its camera is superior. The camera, for instance, promises better lowlight…

indiana school tries new methods with autistic students

An Indianapolis high school that opened last year is attracting students with autism by taking a different approach to teaching. Purdue Polytechnic High School offers flexible schedules, project-based learning and a curriculum focused on science, technology, education and mathematics, The (Lafayette) Journal & Courier reported . The school has 45 students identified as receiving special education services, out of an overall student population of 250. Student Lucas Kramer, who’s on the autism spectrum, said other schools he’s attended in the past left him feeling bored or like he wasn’t in control. The 15-year-old said the school’s real-world challenges help keep him engaged. “It encourages students to learn rather than just listen,” Kramer said. The school’s approach focuses on giving students with autism the flexibility and control they need, said Tonya Taylor, the school’s director of…

hastings college invests in tablet technology initiative

Today’s college students connect with and consume technology in a much different way than students of the past. “The students who come to us today haven’t existed in an age where there wasn’t an internet, where there wasn’t an iPod,” said Travis Feezell, president of Hastings College. “So what if you put the tool — it’s not a proxy for teaching — that is both powerfully about information and if you have a tool which can enhance teaching in certain ways, what if you could put that into the hands of every student and guide some of our teaching so it becomes more impactful,” he said. It is with that in mind that starting in fall 2019 every student entering Hastings College will be equipped with his or her own iPad Pro and…

steve jobs: his legacy continues to shape apple

APPLE’S FUTURE LIES IN ITS PAST There’s no denying Steve Jobs’ impact on Apple and the way in which his visions have shaped the company. Apple now has a trillion-dollar valuation and has been awarded the most valuable in the world. Steve’s way of thinking is, indeed, now ingrained in Apple’s ethos, from marketing to management, to pushing technology and innovation to new heights. Without his passion and bravery for innovation, the iPhone and Macintosh may never have seen the light of day, and today’s leaders would never have had the courage to create the Apple Watch and HomePod. In this week’s article, we relive the death of Steve Jobs, look at the way Apple has changed since his passing, and explore his influence over the company, and how he is shaping…

facebook wants people to invite its cameras into their homes

Facebook is launching the first electronic device to bear its brand, a screen and camera-equipped gadget intended to make video calls easier and more intuitive. But it’s unclear if people will open their homes to an internet-connected camera sold by a company with a questionable track record on protecting user privacy. Facebook is marketing the device, called Portal, as a way for its more than 2 billion users to chat with one another without having to fuss with positioning and other controls. The device features a camera that uses artificial intelligence to automatically zoom as people move around during calls. Since Echo’s release nearly four years ago, both Google and Apple have followed Amazon in releasing smart speakers designed for use with their other digital services — some of them, at least. These…
